For anyone eager to see Floyd Mayweather Jr box Logan Paul in an exhibition, I have some devastating news to report.
The proposed Fanmio pay-per-view event set for February 20th at a location to be determined is going to be moved to another date to be announced, per Irish sports journalist Donagh Corby.
Paul’s coach Kelvin Moore evidently posted and deleted a social media post about the fight being rescheduled.
Mayweather (51-0, 27 KOs) last “boxed” in a special exhibition against kickboxing sensation Tenshin Nasukawa at RIZIN’s NYE 2018 show, dropping Nasukawa multiple times in a short-lived contest that doesn’t count towards either man’s professional boxing record. Floyd’s exploits against actual high-level professional boxers has made him one of the greatest of his era and one of the most decorated world champions of all-time.
Logan Paul (0-1, 0 KOs), a social media celebrity who has carved out a sizable audience through boxing other YouTube personalities, made his pro debut in 2019 and lost a close decision to fellow social media influencer KSI. It seems as if both him and his brother Jake Paul will be in it for the long haul as far as professional and exhibition boxing, and there’s every reason to believe it’ll make them a lot of money.
But hey, if this news bums you out at least take solace in the fact that Jake Paul is supposedly boxing on April 17th.
