One of the greatest boxers ever will fight a YouTube personality who lost his only pro boxing match to a vlogger/gamer.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Logan Paul expect you to pay for this.
Apparently, Mayweather has been baited into a fight with Paul by social media barbs and money. The boxing legend, who retired at 50-0 in 2017 with a technical knockout of Conor McGregor, announced he will fight Paul on Feb. 20. The pay-per-view stream will cost $24.99 for the first million subscribers and increase thereafter until it hits $64.99 on Feb. 11.
Paul’s camp began asking for this fight first in September, according to TMZ Sports, and Paul followed up by saying he would “snap this (expletive) in half.”
Mayweather took the bait, or the money grab, and responded, “These YouTube girls better find some Barbie dolls to play with cause I’m not one for the kid games. Three years ago a fighter from the UFC said my name and I had to put a muzzle on that (expletive). @logalpaul can get the same treatment before I go conquer Japan again.”
Paul, whose brother, Jake, recently knocked out former NBA player Nate Robinson in a Mike Tyson-Roy Jones Jr. undercard, could have a 50-pound advantage … to make a louder thud on the canvas if this fight ever happens.
“For those asking, we are not taking bets on this at this time because it is an exhibition fight,” Paddy Power betting site tweeted. “And because Floyd Mayweather is one of the best boxers of all time and Logan Paul is a YouTuber.”
Oh no, does this mean 2021 is going to be no better?
