Floyd Mayweather Jr. agrees to fight YouTuber Logan Paul!

Floyd Mayweather Jr. is heading back to the ring.

The retired former boxing champion will wear gloves again Feb. 20 for an exhibition match against YouTube personality Logan Paul.

According to the event’s webpage, the bout will be streamed as a pay-per-view. The first 1 million buys will cost $24.99, with the price increasing after that threshold is surpassed or the date gets closer. The price jumps to $69.99 starting Feb. 11.

Mayweather and Paul are no strangers to this type of event.

Mayweather fought kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa on New Year’s Eve in 2018 in an exhibition that reportedly netted him $9 million.

In November 2019, Paul fought another YouTube personality named KSI in a six-round bout sanctioned by the Nevada State Athletic Commission and promoted by Matchroom Boxing. KSI won in a split decision.

Logan Paul is the brother of Jake Paul, who most recently knocked out former NBA player Nate Robinson on the undercard of the Mike Tyson-Roy Jones Jr. exhibition Nov. 28. Jake Paul officially has a 2-0 record with two knockouts.
