Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul ‘broke all combat sports records’ before postponement

Sign the f****** contract: Paul tells Mayweather

The ‘Super Exhibition’ fight between Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul has been in the pipleline for some time now, with the fight scheduled to take place later this month. However, Paul has confirmed that the bout has been pushed back due to “Covid business complications”.

YouTube star Logan Paul has claimed that his upcoming fight with boxing legend Floyd Mayweather had broken every single combat sports record before being postponed.

Paul was scheduled to take on ‘Money’ Mayweather on February 20, but the social media influencer turned professional boxer has admitted that the bout can no longer go ahead as planned.

The 25-year-old revealed that the reason for the postponement was “Covid business complications”, but gave very little other information, other than that there was a “leak” inside his camp.

Paul remained upbeat when discussing the matter on his podcast Impaulsive, explaining: “The Floyd Mayweather fight is pushed [back] which I’m completely OK with.

“We knew it was going to be pushed for a minute now, some Covid business complications is what I can say.

“The fight is still happening so easy with the rumours that there’s no interest. This fight broke every single combat sports record for pre-sale pay-per-view numbers – shattered them.

“I don’t want to get the narrative twisted; we had a leak inside the camp which was annoying and everyone made up their own reasons why it was postponed.

”We want to have a packed arena somewhere and on the business side we have to iron things 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 and sparring as possible under my belt.

“I believe that every day that goes by I get one-to-two per cent better and he gets one-to-two days older. I’m ready to fight anytime and anywhere, I’m just going to keep training.”

A new date has not yet been set for the fight which will pit Paul, who has a 0-1 professional record after losing to fellow YouTuber KSI, against Mayweather, whose 50-0 record is one of the best boxing has ever seen.
