Mayweather vs Paul set for June 6th


As one of the most unusual fights of the year, Floyd Mayweather returns to the boxing ring to face social media influencer Logan Paul. Mayweather enters the ring on Sunday, June 6, with a considerable size disadvantage, but with a near-immeasurable advantage in boxing skills.

In one professional fight, Paul lost to fellow YouTuber KSI by decision. Paul is 6-foot-2 and last fought at the cruiserweight limit of 200 pounds. With a height of 5'8" and a weight of 150 pounds, Paul is the bigger man. In addition, he is 18 years younger than Mayweather. Despite having a contract that limits his weight, Paul cannot exceed 190 pounds.

While Mayweather is the most successful fighter ever, he has a boxing record of 50-0. After losing a controversial decision at the 1996 Olympics, Mayweather won bronze as an amateur. As a amateur, Paul went 0-1, losing to KSI in a professional bout before losing in a white-collar boxing match.
