Floyd Mayweather’s exhibition bout vs Logan Paul postponed

Floyd Mayweather’s fight with YouTube star Logan Paul has been postponed.

The bout was scheduled for February 20 but will no longer happen on that date due to “business complications”, according to Fanmio founder and CEO Solomon Engel.

“After an absolutely tremendous response to the fight announcement, we’re hoping to announce a new date very soon along with some new exciting details,” Engel said in a statement.

Fanmio — an online platform that connects fans with celebrities through online fan experiences — was set to host the event with Paul, which would also get streamed on pay-per-view.

The ‘Money Man’ was entering the ring for the first time since 2018, where he stopped kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa on New Year’s Eve. Prior to that, he beat former UFC champion Conor McGregor in 2017.

Mayweather is 18 years older than Paul and retired in 2017.
