Floyd Mayweather will dust off his boxing gloves soon, as he will take on the YouTuber boxer Logan Paul in a special exhibition fight on February 20, 2021, at the Tokyo Dome in Japan.  Following a fight against Tenshin Nasukawa in 2018, Mayweather will end a hiatus of over two years.

However, the unbeaten world champion doesn’t seem worried about the fight or losing his legacy against an Internet celebrity. Mayweather will clearly be the favorite against Logan Paul. However, boxing is an unpredictable sport and a minute mistake can see a massive upset happen inside the ring.

That said, Logan Paul has the chance to do what no other boxers could do, i.e., beat Floyd Mayweather. ‘The Maverick’ is also training hard, and his social media posts reflect the type of effort he is putting in for the upcoming fight.

Meanwhile, Mayweather’s social media posts show him relaxing. In one of his recent posts, the five-division champion was spotted by his poolside whilst enjoying a movie. So, why isn’t Floyd Mayweather training for Logan Paul? Here’s the reason.

Floyd Mayweather- The King of Boxing

43-year-old Mayweather has been boxing since his youth and is one of the finest ever to have laced up the gloves. While his upcoming adversary has a pro record of 0 wins and 1 loss, Mayweather doesn’t need to exert much effort into his training.

‘Money May’ has faced several world champions in his career and has beaten them all. He remains in elite shape, and it’s certain that Mayweather is a daily visitor of the gym. But boxing fans have lashed out at Mayweather for accepting a fight against Logan Paul. Hence, he may not be sharing his training videos as he doesn’t want to subject himself to more backlash.

As workout videos are absent from his recent social media posts, fans might assume that he has removed it from his routine. However, Floyd Mayweather is preparing for his upcoming fight.

He will seemingly be going through the required regime to secure yet another ‘W’. That said, a win against Logan Paul might not impress the hardcore fans, but it will grab a lot of eyeballs.
