On December 6th YouTuber Logan Paul and professional boxer Floyd Mayweather took to Instgram and other social media platforms to announce that on February 20th, 2021 they will be competing against each other in a boxing match. After days of both fighters firing shots at each other over social media, bashing each others integrity and Paul calling Mayweather out to accept the fight contract they made the fight official.
Last month Floyd responded to Logan’s persistent social media call-outs on twitter telling Logan to “find some Barbie dolls to play with” and that Mayweather could “put a muzzle on him”.
Logan Paul is a social media influencer and YouTuber with 19.9 million subscribers on YouTube and 18 million followers on Instagram, who has recently taken up boxing. Last fall Logan boxed fellow YouTuber, KSI. KSI eventually won the match after 6 rounds.
Floyd Mayweather has been boxing professionally since 1996, and since then has not lost a single fight. He has been 50-0 for nearly 30 years!
With Mayweather’s experience and track record many people think Floyd is gonna have an easy win. Weighing in at 150 pounds and standing at 5’8″, Floyd has fought in the Super Featherweight-Light Middleweight class. While Logan Paul is 6’2″ and weighs 200 pounds, landing him in the Cruiserweight class.
Both height and weight have their advantages and disadvantages in the ring. Logan is a lot bigger than Floyd, packing more of a punch, but Floyd is smaller and faster than Logan.
With a perfect record Floyd would have more determination to win. Imagine a professional boxer losing for the first time in his career to a YouTuber, thus ruining his perfect record. With Mayweather having his career and respect on the line, Paul has nothing to lose, with this being only his second fight in his boxing career. If he loses he will just come back harder and stronger.
