The upcoming match is special for all the good reasons, each creating a new hype level in the community. One of the reasons for this craze is Mayweather’s return to the boxing ring after his retirement in 2017. The 43-year-old player boasts a stellar career, including 15 glorious title victories in five distinct weight categories.
In his last fight, Mayweather defeated MMA star Conor McGregor in a 50-0 record high score. On the other hand, Paul does not have a long experience as he has fought only a single professional match in his entire journey. The twenty-five-year-old player lost his only match against Youtuber KSI in November 2019.
Interestingly, the news about the fight didn’t come as a surprise for the boxing fans owing to the several taunting sessions of the two on their social media handles. Logan Paul took various jibes at Mayweather, which eventually resulted in various insults between the stars that the fans enjoyed.
Recalling Mayweather’s exhibition fight with kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa, Dee Black released a clip on his Twitter handle. The fight gave $9 Million to Mayweather as he defeated Tenshin in mere two minutes of the game.

The upcoming event will be a striking game as the challengers will put forward their best shot to take revenge from each other by proving their expertise in the boxing ring. Mayweather, who owns a bronze medal from the Olympics of 1996 and three U.S Golden Gloves Championship titles in his credit, is likely to give a tough challenge to his opponent even after the halt.
