It’s official. Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul are going to face off in an exhibition boxing match.

On Sunday, the 43-year-old retired boxer and 25-year-old YouTuber shared the news on their respective social media accounts. 

The match will take place on February 20, 2021 as a pay-per-view event on Fanmio. The cost is $24.99 for the first one million buys, and then the price will increase after that threshold is met and as the date nears closer, up to $69.99. 

Since the face-off is an exhibition boxing match, the results will not count towards either of their professional records. Mayweather retired in 2017 with an undefeated 50-0 record with 27 knockouts while Paul is currently at 0-1. His loss was to fellow YouTuber KSI in a split decision. 

Over a week ago, Logan’s brother, Jake, 23, knocked out former NBA star Nate Robinson on the Mike Tyson-Roy Jones Jr. undercard and the internet sensation has had other celebrities lining up for their shot, including Connor McGregor, who previously boxed Mayweather.
