Youtuber Logan Paul and boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather have a date set for their exhibition fight and have slapped a huge price tag fans must pay to watch it.
The pair were supposed to complete their mega crossover fight in February last year but according to Paul, there were "complications" in securing an agreement.
They will now meet on June 6 at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami to avoid clashing with another online Pay-Per-View the day before.
Trilla will stream Teofimo Lopez's lightweight world title defence against George Kambosos before Paul v Mayweather is broadcast worldwide on Fanmio for a jaw-dropping figure.
Each purchase will be considerably larger than the pending undisputed heavyweight clash between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury.
Paul, 26, is famous for his "Impaulsive" podcast and began boxing in 2018 when he set up a bout with British Youtube rival KSI.
Mayweather is a former five-weight world champion and is unbeaten in 50 professional contests.
Their next fight will cost $49.99 (£35) for completing six rounds with full undercard bouts being discussed.
In comparison, Anthony Joshua's last fight with Andy Ruiz in Saudia Arabia was priced at £24.95 with a similar figure expected for the Fury clash on both Sky Sports and BT.
Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn has dismissed speculation that Joshua v Fury will cost fans as much as £40.
Mayweather meanwhile is expecting to make $100million from the Paul fight as his sole motivation for lacing up the gloves again.
“$35million for 12 rounds or $100million for six rounds – big difference," he told the Disruptive Entrepreneur Podcast.
"I can eventually probably make $50million, for just a regular fight.
“Or me and Logan Paul can go out, entertain, have fun and make nine figures $100million or more.
"I think it’s gonna be very entertaining for the people, I think people are gonna love it."
