Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul: height and weight of the boxer and YouTube star – and why fight is delayed

The exhibition bout between Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul has been set a new date.

The two were meant to do battle on 20 February 2021 but the fight was delayed due to “business complications”, said Paul.

Paul insisted the fight would still happen but the pair are waiting for the right time when they can entertain a “packed out arena”.

“I need as much practice, training, sparring under my belt against this guy,” said Paul. “With every day that goes past I get better and he gets older.”

Now it appears a new date and location has been set for Mayweather v Paul.

How did the planned fight come about?

Mayweather sent shockwaves through the boxing universe when he announced a return to the ring to fight YouTuber Paul in an exhibition bout.

Mayweather – one of boxing’s most decorated champions – confirmed his return and opponent in an Instagram post on Sunday 6 December 2020.

The 43-year-old, who ended his career unbeaten in 50 professional bouts, last laced up his gloves for an exhibition fight with kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in December 2018.

He needed just 140 seconds for the win on that occasion.

Will Paul, who made headlines in 2017 when he filmed a YouTube video featuring a dead body in a Japanese forest, last longer when the two finally get in the ring?

Why is Mayweather v Paul taking place?

Neither camp has yet explained their motivation for the exhibition, which promises to be a lucrative evening’s work for both fighters.

Mayweather’s unbeaten record and multiple world titles in the sport commands an audience, while Paul has more than 20 million YouTube subscribers.

The announcement followed hot on the heels of Mike Tyson’s bout with Roy Jones Jr, which saw two boxing greats return to the ring for an exhibition bout which ended as a draw.

Do Mayweather and Paul know each other?

There is history between the two on social media, amid speculation a fight had been agreed for several months, with Mayweather taunting Paul in November.

“These YouTube girls better find some Barbie dolls to play with cause I’m not the one for the kid games. 3 years ago a fighter from the UFC said my name and I had to put a muzzle on that b*tch. @loganpaul can get the same treatment before I go conquer Japan again,” said Mayweather.

Paul’s brother and fellow influencer, Jake, who fought and beat ex-NBA player Nate Robinson, responded by telling The Daily Beast: “You know, it doesn’t bother me.

“At the end of the day, he’s like 5-foot-4, so he’s actually the little kid here, and obviously he just wants attention. He’s fifty-something years old. He should be in retirement. So he just wants to get relevancy by talking about the YouTube kids, because we’re the ones popping off right now.”

When is Mayweather v Paul?

The exhibition fight between Mayweather and Paul is back on.

The bout, postponed from its initial 20 February 2021 date, is now scheduled to take place on 6 June 2021 at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium.

Mayweather confirmed the contest on his Instagram page to 25.3 million followers.

How can I watch Mayweather v Paul?

The exhibition bout was due to be screened worldwide on Fanmio.

Both fighters are expected to earn millions of dollars from the bout.

Has Logan Paul fought before?

YouTube personality Paul, 25, lost his one professional bout to fellow social media star KSI in November 2019 at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

What is Logan Paul’s height and weight?

Standing at 1.88 metres (6ft 2in), Paul weighed in at 199.4 pounds (90kg) for his cruiserweight fight against KSI.

How tall is Floyd Mayweather?

Mayweather, meanwhile, is 1.73m (5ft 8in) tall and weighed in at 147 pounds (67kg) for his last exhibition fight in 2018 against Nasukawa.

His last professional bout came in 2017 when he took on and defeated MMA fighter Conor McGregor in a highly-anticipated cross-disciplined duel.
