Boxing Mayweather v Logan Paul Exhibition Match Postponed, Boxer Gives Reasons

By Abiola Olawale

The highly anticipated exhibition match between Floyd Mayweather, an American professional boxer and Logan Paul, an American YouTuber and boxer, will no longer hold on February 20, as Paul postponed the match to a later date over complications on busines paperworks.

Following the initial date: February 20 announced for the match between the duo, Logan has come out to say the match won’t be happening as it has been shifted to a date that would be later communicated.

While speaking at the Press Conference on his YouTube channel, Logan says the postponement was due to some complications in the business aspect of the match. He also stated that he needed time to train more for the match.

In his words, “The fight is still happening (but) we want to have a packed arena somewhere and then the business side of things, we have to iron them out. He’s got a lot of people on his team, (his advisor) Al Haymon got involved, if you know boxing, you know what that means for getting an actual deal done and figuring out a venue. I need as much practice, training, sparring under my belt against this guy. With everyday that goes past I get better and he gets older.”

It would be recalled that Mayweather, 43, was an American professional boxer who never lost any professional match. He retired in 2015. However, he made a comeback in 2017, where he defeated Conor McGregor, therefore extending his unbeaten run to 50 matches.

Logan, 25, on the other hand, is an American YouTuber and boxer. Logan’s only experience in boxing was against a fellow YouTuber, KSI. A match which initially ended in a draw. The rematch in 2019, was however won by KSI.
