Showtime have confirmed the four-fight card that will be headlined by Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul in Miami next month. The American YouTube sensation, who has only been involved in one 'professional' fight, will go toe-to-toe with the man many consider as the greatest boxer to ever step between the ropes. Logan’s solitary bout was all the way back in November 2019, when he lost to fellow YouTuber KSI via a split decision. It is believed that bout drew more than a million pay-per-views as he and brother Jake continue to shake up the sport. Mayweather 44, is a former five-weight world champion and will of course go into the bout at the Hard Rock Stadium as the overwhelming favourite.
