Last week, Floyd Mayweather revealed that his boxing match vs Logan Paul would officially be going down on Sunday, June 6, in Miami. This exhibition fight was initially supposed to take place on February 20 but ended up being postponed due to “COVID and other things.”
Many have since wondered why Mayweather took a fight vs such an inexperience fighter in Paul. Paul’s last fight was in November 2029, where he took a loss to fellow YouTuber, KSI. Now, Mayweather has explained in a new interview with Rob Moore why he agreed to this happening. Money and the fact that this fight doesn’t affect his professional record were huge factors here.
“Because a fight is something that goes on your record forever. This is an exhibition. Remember this, I got a sharp mind. “I told y’all I was entertainer, so I can fight a fighter right now and I can guarantee myself $35 million. Or me and Logan Paul can go out and entertain people and bring in 9 figures, $100 million. Why not?”
Mayweather has always been about his money, as evident with him being one of the richest athletes on the planet. If the check is right, he definitely seems open to fighting anyone in the ring. Regardless of how people feel about this upcoming exhibition vs Paul, it is definitely expected expected to pull in a lot of high ratings with both Mayweather and Paul also receiving huge paydays.
