Sky Sports in the U.K. announced Friday that they will televise the PPV, as well, but did not initially indicate a price.
As we wrote previously, the exhibition was originally announced in December and slated February, but things went silent and that month came and went, as did March. However the internet/social media buzz being generated by Logan’s brother Jake Paul with his Triller “Fight Club” PPV in April with his 1st round KO of former amateur wrestler/MMA fighter Ben Askren, obviously made everyone take notice and line up their own shows and bouts with non-traditional fighters.
Mayweather, who retired with a 50-0 record, is five division World Champ with previous career wins over the likes of Arturo Gatti, Oscar De La Hoya, Miguel Cotto, Canelo Alvarez and Manny Pacquiao. Mayweather was voted “Fighter of the Decade” for the 2010’s by the Boxing Writers Association of America late last year.
Mayweather is looking to cash-in, as he always has, including his last actual fight in the ring having been against MMA Megastar Conor McGregor whom he defeated in a full-on boxing match in August of 2017.
As for Paul, he has been in the boxing ring before fighting as part of Matchroom Boxing card in Los Angeles in November of 2019. That’s when he fought in a six-three minute rounds, sanctioned Crusierweight fight against British, YouTube personality KSI. KSI won the split decision with actual California judges scoring the bout.
Paul fought previously as a Crusierweight and Mayweather’s last fights were at the Jr. Middleweight limit. It’s believed that they will agree on a weight range for this bout, which will be scheduled for eight rounds.
The undercard will include former world champ Jarrett “Swift” Hurd fighting in a 10 round Jr. Middleweight battle with veteran Luis Arias. And, Light Heavyweights Badou Jack and Jean Pascal will rematch off their thrilling 12 round battle in 2019. Also, former NFL wide receiver Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson, who’s previously trained in the ring with Mayweather, will be in an exhibition fight of his own against an opponent to be determined.
