It’s happening!

Today, in words I thought I’d never write, Floyd Mayweather Jr. is fighting YouTuber Logan Paul in an exhibition boxing match. Given the obvious skill discrepancy, and the fact Logan Paul is massive compared to the diminutive Mayweather, it’s hard to predict what will happen.

Which is why the whole thing is so compelling and weird and… sort of unmissable.

You can find all the details on how to watch Logan Paul vs. Floyd Mayweather Jr. here, but here’s a quick rundown.

Quick details

There are plenty of ways to watch, but perhaps the easiest is to buy on Fanmio. Anyone in any region can buy the PPV on the site and stream from there.

The fight card is only 4 fights deep.

  • Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul
  • Badou Jack vs. Dervin Colina
  • Jarret Hurd vs. Luis Arias
  • Chad Johnson vs. Brian Maxwell

The card starts at 8 p.m. EDT (5 p.m. PDT) on Sunday, June 6, but the main event will not start before 10 p.m. EDT (7 p.m. PDT).

The lead-up

The Logan Paul vs. Floyd Mayweather Jr. fight is already trending on Twitter. 

Logan Paul has been dropping some tweets about the event. To be honest, I get the feeling this is one massive publicity stunt for the dude, and you can’t really blame him. The fact he’s made this fight a reality is… wild.

Jake Paul, who is fighting former UFC champion Tyron Woodley later this year, had this to say…

Prediction

Now feels as good a time as any to put a prediction into the ether… 

Logan Paul doesn’t have a chance is my take. Size matters in boxing, but not in the same as it does in grappling or MMA. Whereas there have been very few multi-division champions in the UFC, it’s far more common for boxing champions to move up in weight and defeat larger men. 

I just don’t think Logan Paul will be able to lay a glove on Floyd. Simple as that. He’s arguably the best defensive boxer in history. The only wild card here is he’s fighting someone dramatically less skilled than he’s used to. Does that change the types of punches Paul will throw? Does that mess with timing? Maybe. But I see Logan Paul getting excited, trying to hit Mayweather with huge shots that miss, and then very quickly getting tired. We’ll probably see a TKO is the 5th or 6th round.

Pre-show

This is absolutely a different vibe to the last Jake Paul fight, produced by Triller Fight Club. There’s no Snoop Dog, no Oscar De La Hoya ranting like wild person. This feels like a more sober, traditional boxing event. They even have Mauro Ranallo! Love this guy. He’s commentated everything from boxing to wrestling to MMA.

This is just a better production all up. Or maybe I’m just way too old to understand the appeal of Triller.
