An exhibition match between undefeated former world champion Floyd Mayweather and YouTube star-turned-amateur boxer Logan Paul is back on.
The pair will face off 6 June at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Mayweather announced on his Instagram page on Tuesday, after the match billed as a “special exhibition” was postponed from its original February date.
“Mayweather Promotions, Fanmio and Showtime Boxing have come together to bring an epic event,” wrote the 44-year-old Mayweather, who boasts a pristine 50-0 record.
The five-weight division world champion last fought professionally in August 2017, when he defeated fiery mixed martial arts champion Conor McGregor, who was making his boxing debut.
Paul has a 0-1 record after losing to fellow YouTube personality KSI. He is the older brother of Jake Paul, a fellow YouTuber who has also dipped his toes into professional boxing.
Additional details on rules of the fight and the undercard will be released soon, according to Fanmio, a platform that connects fans with celebrities through online experiences.
Paul should have no problem attracting an audience: he has nearly 22m subscribers on YouTube.
