A long-rumored bout is officially a go.
Tuesday night, it was announced that boxing great Floyd Mayweather and upstart Logan Paul will square off on June 6 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami.
On Tuesday, Leonard Ellerbe, CEO of Mayweather Promotions told BoxingScene.com to “stay tuned,” now the Hall of Fame boxer and the YouTube celebrity will box in an exhibition match this summer.
The two were originally set to headline a Feb. 20 card but the bout was postponed in late January.
“There a lot of people involved and you’ve only got one shot at it so you need to get it absolutely 1,000 percent right,” Paul said on his podcast when news of postponement came down in late January. “We’re just making sure we’re doing that.
“But yeah, I’m still going to beat the s— out of Floyd Mayweather. Or, maybe he’s going to beat the s— out of me, who knows? The point is it’s still going to happen.”
Now, the fight will happen — and, of course, Twitter had much to say.
