Floyd Mayweather returns to boxing to meet social media influencer Logan Paul in a showdown that stands out as one of the year’s most unusual fights. Mayweather enters the ring with a significant disadvantage, but with an almost immeasurable advantage in boxing skills on Sunday, June 6th.
Paul has only fought once as a professional and lost a decision to fellow YouTuber KSI. Paul is 6 feet 2 and last fought as one at the 200 pound cruiserweight limit. Compared to Mayweather at 5 feet 8 and about 150 pounds, Paul is the much larger man. He is also 18 years younger than Mayweather. Paul has a limited weight on his weight with a rule that he can not weigh more than 190 pounds.
However, Mayweather is 50-0 like a professional boxer, one of the most skilled fighters who has ever laced up a pair of gloves. Before Mayweather became a professional, Mayweather was a skilled amateur who took bronze at the 1996 Olympics after a controversial decision loss. As an amateur, Paul was 0-1 after losing to KSI in a white collar boxing match before the loss in an official match.
