Floyd Mayweather returns to the ring, albeit for an exhibition match: Sunday 6th June, all’Hard Rock Stadium di Miami, will face on the distance of the eight shots Logan Paul, one of the most famous American youtubers and protagonist of the podcast Impaulsive, always hosted on Google’s proprietary platform.
Mayweather hasn’t fought in four years: If you exclude a quick performance in Japan in 2018, the last time he did it in 2017 against Conor McGregor, UFC star, who for the occasion left the octagon for the ring. In that event, named The Biggest Fight in Combat Sports History, Mayweather got the better of TKO by updating his pro record (50 wins, 0 defeats, the best ever).
MAYWEATHER vs PAUL, AN IMPOSSIBLE MATCH
Mayweather has just turned 44, he has officially retired but there is little doubt about his form to face a match of this type. His opponent is an amateur, he has fought in the past mainly to create hype and content for his social channels. There are significant differences in height between the two – 172 centimeters versus 188 – and weight and age in Logan Paul’s favor, but these advantages cannot in any way bridge the technical and experience gap that exists between the two. We will therefore fight for the show, for pure entertainment, a dimension that is certainly not new for Floyd Mayweather. At ease in showbiz, The Best Ever (one of his nicknames) has participated in WWE events in the past but also in Dancing With the Stars. He has beaten everyone in the ring – from Oscar De La Hoya to Manny Pacquiao – and also outside, at least in terms of earnings: he has been several times, in the course of his career, the highest paid athlete in the world in the special annual Forbes ranking (one of his nicknames, not surprisingly, is Money) .
WHO IS LOGAN PAUL
Born in Ohio in 1995, Logan Paul it achieved popularity thanks to social networks, first with Vine and then above all with YouTube. Its official channel has over 23 million subscribers, but for some time he has been dedicated to video podcasts Impaulsive, which he leads along with George Janko and Mike Majlak. Last year was the protagonist of a episode of Wild Moss, the podcast by Fedez and Luis Sal, at the very beginning of the first pandemic wave in Italy. He has acted in some movies and television series, but the web is definitely the place where he expresses himself best. However, in the past, there have been episodes that have removed him from the network, especially when he published a video in the Aokigahara forest, in Japan, a place notorious for its many suicides. On that occasion he shot a body hanging from a rope, creating a stir and risking the elimination of his account. Boxing is a passion of his, but his score is not exciting (0 wins, 1 loss against rapper KSI). His brother Jake Paul also wears boxing gloves: he fought in the meeting he saw the return of Tyson defeating former NBA star Nate Robinson.
