The boxing exhibition between Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul originally scheduled for February 20 has been indefinitely postponed.
Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul will have to wait a while longer to cash in on their planned exhibition bout. Instead of taking place on February 20, there is currently no date set for the event to take place. In a statement released the ESPN, Fanmio president Solomon Engel announced the postponement on Tuesday:
“After an absolutely tremendous response to the fight announcement, we’re hoping to announce a new date very soon along with some new exciting details,” Engel’s statement read.
Logan Paul’s last pay-per-view event generated $1.3 million in buys when the YouTube star boxed KSI. Floyd Mayweather’s most recent appearance in the ring was in 2018 when he picked up a TKO victory over Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa.
There is strong reason to believe that a bout between Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul would generate a very large sum of money. And after the bout was announced in December, Mayweather didn’t waste time throwing stones and initiating the promotion:
“These YouTube girls better find some Barbie dolls to play with cause I’m not the one for the kid games. 3 years ago a fighter from the UFC said my name and I had to put a muzzle on that bitch. @loganpaul can get the same treatment before I go conquer Japan again,” Mayweather tweeted.
Logan Paul’s brother, Jake Paul, is still expected to make a lot of money under the Paul family name when he takes on Ben Askren on April 17.
