The legendary boxer is finally taking on the YouTube star this summer in Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, and the new date has been made official. It will be on Sunday, June 6. The schedule will avoid a clash with another pay-per-view event involving George Kambosos Jr. against the undisputed lightweight king Teofimo Lopez.

Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium, the home of Super Bowl LIV and the Miami Dolphins, and will be the venue of the much-awaited match.  As announced, Showtime pay-per-view and Fanmio will carry the fight, as confirmed by Mayweather on Instagram. “Logan Paul and I are going to fight at Hard Rock Stadium. Mayweather Promotions, Fanmio, and Showtime will team up to give you an epic event,” Mayweather mentioned in his post.

There are no confirmed details on the number of rounds they will fight or the size gloves the fighters will use. Mayweather (50-0, 27 KOs), 44, has retired after defeating MMA star Conor McGregor by 10th-round TKO in a boxing match back in 2017 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Since retirement, Mayweather has also featured in an exhibition bout, knocking out Japanese kickboxing star Tenshin Nasukawa in 2018, with him winning by TKO in the first round. Mayweather has 50-0 in his professional career, now is going to square off against YouTube star Logan Paul. On the opposite corner, Logan Paul (0-1 0 KOs), 26, lost his only professional fight in November 2019 against fellow YouTube star KSI, real name Olajide William Olatunji. 

The Mayweather-Paul fight’s previous schedule was February 20, but COVID-19 protocols would not allow a packed stadium. There should be more fans attending in June as the date rolls around as Americans continue to get vaccinated. In the last terms of the fight state, Mayweather should be under 160 pounds, and Paul will be allowed to come in under 190 pounds on the day of the match. Since the fight is considered an exhibition, the result will not count toward Mayweather’s perfect record.
