Legendary American boxer Floyd Mayweather is reportedly set to stage a comeback to the ring to face YouTube star Logan Paul.
The 43-year-old’s last fight came against Conor McGregor, which saw him win to take his impeccable record to 50-0.
Multiple reports suggest Mayweather has already signed a contract to take on Paul in a mega exhibition fight.
In a YouTube video, Fighting News’ Mike Feinberg said the contract for the fight is already official.
“I’ve got some breaking news for you. Floyd Mayweather Jr is coming out of retirement and has just officially signed a contract to fight in an exhibition match against Logan Paul — YouTube sensation Logan Paul,” Feinberg said.
so apparently Floyd Mayweather (a professional champion boxer) is going to fight Logan Paul (a YouTube asshole). Mayweather is going to beat his ass into a pulp. I hope he knocks some sense into that kid.

“I don’t understand the fight. Logan Paul has tried his hand at professional boxing — couldn’t the other nobody [that] nobody’s ever heard of before. [Paul’s] now zero and one.
“He’s going to be fighting one of the best in Floyd Mayweather. It’s going to be a joke of a fight, but it’s signed. It’s official.
“I heard it from a reputable source today and even saw the signed picture of the signed contract where Floyd signed on the dotted line for this exhibition match.”
The 25-year-old Paul has little experience in professional boxing and is more knows as a YouTube star.
