We told you it was close … and now it’s official — Floyd Mayweather is fighting Logan Paul.
Here’s what you need to you know … it’s an exhibition boxing match set for Feb. 20, and it’s available on Pay-Per-View on Fanmio.
(An “exhibition” means the fight will NOT count on either fighter’s professional records)
Floyd is 43-years-old and undefeated. Logan is 25 and 0-1 as a pro.
Floyd is 5’8″ and last fought at 150 pounds. Logan is 6’2″, 200 pounds.
Fanmio — an site where fans can pay for custom videos from celebs — says the PPV price is $24.99 right now … but that number will go up at various benchmarks, until Feb. 11, when the price locks in at $69.99.

As we previously reported, Logan’s team went to Floyd’s camp with an offer for a boxing match earlier this year … but it wasn’t an easy process to get Mayweather to sign the dotted line.
Logan launched a public campaign trashing Floyd everywhere — and saying he would beat TBE’s ass any time, any place … and finally, Floyd decided to put pen to paper.
Floyd responded to Logan on social media in November — saying, “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 bitch. @loganpaul can get the same treatment before I go conquer Japan again.”

Logan’s only professional fight was against his YouTube rival KSI back in Nov. 2019 — a 6-round fight Paul lost via split decision.
But the takeaway from that fight was that Logan can scrap — and the impressive PPV numbers proved he can draw an audience.
Floyd, a master promoter, knows a good thing when he sees it … he clearly thinks he’ll make a ton of money with little-to-no risk.
Remember what Floyd did to Conor McGregor did when they fought back 2017?!?!? He dominated the UFC champ while taking a $300 to $400 million pay day!!
No word how much each fighter stands to make this time around … but Floyd wouldn’t even consider taking this on if it wasn’t a HUGE number.
Things are going well for the Paul brothers — Logan’s lil’ bro Jake Paul just beat the hell out of ex-NBA star Nate Robinson and EVERY fighter (and non-fighter) on the planet is angling for the next fight with him.
