Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul

How much more will the Paul brothers bypass? Logan Paul is now playing with greatness in the face of one of the best fighters of all time.

The older Paul brother is going to get his shot at 50-0 Floyd Mayweather announced on Sunday that he will be taking on the YouTuber in an exhibition boxing match in February.

The undefeated boxing legend announced on Sunday that he will be taking on the YouTube personality.

Both are slated to fight in an exhibition boxing match in February.

Mayweather announces exhibition fight against Paul

Mayweather made the announcement on his Twitter handle. He is scheduled to take on Logan Paul on Feb. 20 in a Pay-Per-View bout on Fanmio Boxing.

There aren't much details about the event yet. All that is shared right now is what is seen on social media.

Mayweather is the master of big money fights. His last was also his biggest-paying bout against Conor McGregor, who he beat via TKO in 2017.

Even in exhibition bouts he hit the $10 million mark when he faced kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in a New Year’s Eve exhibition in 2018.

Big money again for the Paul brothers

The Paul brothers Logan and Jake have sold more than most of the legitimate fighters. 

Logan has one pro fight so far when he took on fellow YouTuber KSI. He lost that bout via a split decision in a six-round fight last November 2019 at the Staples Center. 

Jake Paul has just come off a wild knockout win over former NBA star Nate Robinson last month. The viral moment got both the boxing and basketball community reacting.

Who will win?

Exhibition bouts are what it is. Records may not be tallied but the lifetime fight record is still on the line. Mayweather is bringing in a ton of experience while Paul only has youth on his side.

Skill wise, we know who will win. The two entrepreneurs saw a huge opportunity here which is why they two agreed for another massive payday.

Still, there's still the curiosity part that will convince us to buy in, right?
