Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul has been confirmed for June 6, to be held at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium.
The pair were due to fight in February, but the fight was quickly postponed when it appeared that the coronavirus would prevent enough fans to attend a fight that could generate sufficient revenues.
However it seems that with the success of the American vaccine rollout that the pair are now ready to put on an event this summer.
On Instagram, Mayweather wrote: "Me and Logan Paul will be fighting at the Hardrock Stadium.
"@mayweatherpromotions @fanmio and @showtimeboxing have come together to bring an epic Event!!!
"Tickets will be going on sale next week."
Mayweather and Paul are set to fight in an exhibition rather than a professional setting, with a weight limit of 160lbs for Mayweather and 190lbs for Paul, who at 6’2” stands four inches taller than Mayweather.
Mayweather has a professional record of 50-0, with Paul a less impressive 0-1. The former champion last fought in the ring as a professional in 2017 when he defeated Conor McGregor, and last fought in any public event on New Year’s Eve 2018 in Tokyo against kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa.
A fight is perhaps no surprise given the success of Logan’s brother, Jake Paul, who beat former UFC fighter Ben Askren two weekends ago to reportedly earn in excess of $10 million.
Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe recently promised a huge event as part of the fight card.
