One of boxing's greatest pound-for-pound fighters, 2020 International Boxing Hall of Fame inductee Floyd Mayweather Jr., puts on the gloves once again as he takes on YouTube personality Logan Paul in an eight-round exhibition bout on Sunday from Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Fla.
What had been perceived to be a fun introductory press conference at the beginning between Mayweather and Paul escalated in a hurry when Paul's younger brother, Jake, got into a heated confrontation with the boxing great in the bowels of Sunday's contest. Jake took Mayweather's hat, and security intervened quickly to try and separate them, which upset all parties involved and led to Mayweather wanting to get a piece of Logan.
"It's one thing to sell a fight, and people can say what they want, but one thing no one is going to do, is disrespect me," Mayweather said after the incident.
Mayweather (50-0, 27 KOs) ended his professional career with a 10th-round stoppage of UFC star Conor McGregor in August 2017. The 44-year-old later hopped a plane to Japan to destroy kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in one round on New Year's Eve in 2018.
Paul (0-1) returns to the sweet science for the first time since losing via split-decision to fellow social media personality KSI in November 2019. Many are doubting Paul's chance to succeed. Who doesn't have that mindset? The 26-year-old from Ohio.
"Floyd came out of retirement, just to get re-retired," Paul said. "I'm about to beat the greatest fighter of all time."
