Live stream of Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul: How to watch a boxing match
On Sunday, how to watch Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul.
On June 6, Floyd Mayweather will face social media sensation Logan Paul at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, seeking to avoid one of sports’ biggest upsets.
Paul, a YouTuber, takes against Floyd Mayweather, one of the greatest boxers of all time, with a professional record of 50 victories from 50 matches.
In 2019, Paul turned pro to battle fellow YouTuber KSI. The American came up short in a split decision.
Mayweather, a four-weight world champion, is estimated to earn at least £70 million ($100 million) from the fight.
Mayweather was supposed to battle YouTuber Logan in February, but the fight was canceled due to the flu outbreak.
The event was subsequently rumored to be completely canceled, but the two rejected the rumor and will instead face off tonight.
Mayweather said on the Disruptive Entrepreneurs podcast, “I can fight a boxer right now and guarantee myself $35 million (£24.7 million).”
“For just a standard battle, I can definitely make $50 million (£35 million).”
“Or, alternatively, Logan Paul and I can go out and entertain, have a good time, and earn nine figures, $100 million, or more.
“Everyone assumes that being retired means sitting at home with your feet up and gaining weight.
Following a press conference last month, Paul’s brother Jake, who is also a YouTuber, stole Mayweather’s hat, giving the fight an early twist.
In the immediate aftermath, a video of the incident went viral on social media. When Jake and Mayweather met face to face, they both said, “Let’s make it happen.”
It was implied that Mayweather might fight Logan’s brother following the fight in Miami. “Let me call Al Haymon,” Jake says, referring to Mayweather’s manager.
The 24-year-old YouTube sensation then grabs Mayweather’s hat and flees in the odd footage.
The ploy sparked a major melee, during which Mayweather appeared to throw a punch at Jake, who was dragged to the ground by the audience.
Sky Sports Box Office will broadcast the fight live.
Their broadcast is scheduled to begin around 11:55 p.m.
It will cost £16.95 and will include the whole undercard as well as the main event.
The bout will take place in Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium.
On Monday morning, Mayweather and Paul are due to take their ring walks at 4 a.m. UK time.
