Boxing Hall of Famer Floyd “Money” Mayweather and YouTuber Logan Paul met face-to-face Thursday at a media event to preview their special exhibition match that headlines a SHOWTIME PPV event on Sunday, June 6 at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida. After the press event, a scuffle between the two camps ensued following an incident between Logan’s brother, Jake Paul and Mayweather after Jake grabbed Floyd’s baseball cap.

“It’s one thing to sell a fight, and people can say what they want, but one thing no one is going to do is disrespect me,” said Mayweather.

“Floyd came out of retirement, just to get re-retired,” said Paul.

The pay-per-view will also include WBA light heavyweight champion Jean Pascal and two-division world champion Badou Jack in a 12-round rematch, plus former unified super welterweight champion “Swift” Jarrett Hurd against Luis Arias in a 10-round bout. Former NFL star wide receiver Chad Johnson will be making his boxing debut against TBA.

  • Sorry, but not really feeling the zeal in this scripted act. I will just wait for the free YouTube highlights and watch Mayweather school him in how to box with a reminder that a full-time YouTuber is NOT a professional fighter, but a professional actor with “fighter” delusions.

    • Pretty sure they both know that a real fight wouldn’t last more than twenty seconds.

  • If Mayweather really wanted to do something for real, at 44, he’d go after 38 year old Lara for the WBA title at 160, but it could be even a non title 10 rounder, and people would want to see it. All Floyd would have to do is win 5 rounds clearly, not get floored, and he has a draw with one of the middle champions. Floyd wouldn’t fight Golovkin at 160, even if Golovkin said he’d come in at 158, and Golovkin is 39, and IBF champ, but he is a dangerous puncher. This thing Floyd is doing with Paul is way more of a farce than the one against McGregor.

    • Floyd doesn’t need to do anything. You’d criticize him no matter what he did. GGG wouldn’t go up to fight Andre Ward. GGG won’t move up at all to do anything. His ridiculous fans are still begging for a 3rd fight when Canelo already gave him a boxing lesson. GGG was hype and Floyd is retired let it go.

    • Floyd has nothing left to prove, he’s retired undefeated. He’s making huge money having fun taking meaningless fights, god bless him, he already schooled canelo. I just wish he’d throw me a million or two and do a fan fight that’d be awesome

  • They should have a special attraction WWE style “Battle Royale” involving 4 bodyguards in each of the fighters camps

  • Mayweather a joke and will always be waste of time fight Pac-Man Spence or Crawford

    • And yet you still give him your time. Geeze you’re smart (sarcasm). Newsflash he’s retired and he already beat Pac-Man. Why don’t you tell Pac-Man to fight Spence concerning he was suppose to fight the winner of Spence vs Mikey Garcia (everyone thought Garcia would win) and ran away to fight an injury prone Keith Thurman.

    • Everyone criticizes but you will all watch. Who do you think pays for his fights, his haters? If you guys were smart you wouldn’t pay. I don’t blame Floyd. If hate is so blind it will cause you to finally support the person you hate then take their money.

  • Can’t wait to see Paul Ko mayweather – Mc Gregor was battering him before the dodgy ref stepped in. Paul will finish this fake boxer for once and for all. I’ve been to see him training and I’ve watched him perfect what I call the real money shot. Ko’s Mayweather then Kos Canelo then takes out McGregor – and eventually fights his brother for the Heavyweight title. Will end up as the biggest earner and star the sport has ever seen. He’s smart he can use his size and achieve all these great things.

    • McGregor’s arms were so tired that he had trouble keeping his hands up before Floyd (who I do not like as a human being) KO’d McGregor.
      What fight were you watching?
      Take care
      – Gary G

  • I’m really excited about this “fight”.
    (not really, it’s a joke).
    – Gary G

  • That whole incident did seem scripted but I don’t care I really want to see Mayweather send this kid out on a stretcher. I am sorry I am not sorry.

  • This is not a fight. This is an IQ test. This is a test to see how smart or stupid you are. If you buy this fight, you are a moron.
