May 10, 2021: Boxing star Floyd Mayweather is coming out of retirement to fight YouTube star Logan Paul in an “exhibition boxing match.” This fight is scheduled to take place on June 6 in Miami at the Hard Rock Stadium. Floyd Mayweather, who is undefeated (50-0), hasn’t stepped into a boxing ring since New Year’s Eve 2018. Logan Paul, however, has only participated in one professional boxing match – against KSI, another YouTube star – and lost. Because of his history and status in the boxing world, Floyd Mayweather is easily favored to defeat Logan Paul in this matchup. 

A press conference was held between the fighters on May 7 and things got a little rowdy. Jake Paul (Logan Paul’s brother) ended up taking Mayweather’s hat and running away with it. Mayweather ended up punching Jake Paul in the face, leaving him with a black eye. Jake Paul then released merchandise of his own saying “Got your hat” on it, which has raised the tensions between the two sides. Floyd Mayweather said he would also fight Jake Paul. Both Paul brothers hired 24/7 security after Floyd threatened to kill both Paul brothers because Jake and Logan were mocking Floyd . Logan Paul announced that he and his brother will have at least one bodyguard around them at all times.
