Fresh details for Paul vs Mayweather have been reportedly agreed

New details have reportedly emerged for the proposed boxing showdown between Logan Paul and Floyd Mayweather.

The YouTuber and boxing icon were set to fight back on February 20 in an exhibition bout, only for the meeting to be delayed.

The world of combat sports was initially quite stunned to see it happen given that Logan was coming off the back of a pro boxing defeat to KSI, whereas Mayweather is enjoying retirement with the occasional exhibition thrown in there for good measure.

Logan Paul chases history

Now, as per The Athletic, more details have come out regarding the rescheduling of Paul vs Mayweather.

The plan is apparently for it to take place on June 5 and it’ll go down on Showtime which, in itself, is a huge sign of the potential this fight has.

Mayweather will not be allowed to weigh more than 160 pounds with Paul not being able to weigh more than 190 pounds. There are allegedly potential fight locations on the table: Las Vegas, Miami, Dallas, Atlanta and Los Angeles, with Vegas expected to be the frontrunner due to Floyd’s connections with the city.

If it does go ahead on June 5, it’ll clash with Teofimo Lopez vs George Kambosos – which will happen on Triller.

The irony of that, of course, stems from the fact that Logan’s brother Jake Paul recently fought Ben Askren under the Triller Fight Club umbrella.

As an organisation they seem to be hellbent on mixing things up in boxing, but as of right now, that doesn’t extend to Logan Paul vs Floyd Mayweather.

It’s the kind of sideshow fight that we’ve come to expect from this subsection of the sport and, moving forward, that trend is likely to continue.

Mayweather will be heavily favoured regardless of the weight advantage that Logan possesses, but after the past year, who knows anymore.
