The main event will start around 11 p.m. ET. Check out our Mayweather vs. Paul results page to find out what happened on the undercard. Mayweather, who has a 50-0 career record, will compete in an exhibition for the first time since Dec. 31, 2018 when he knocked out Tenshin Nasukawa in the first round.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Logan Paul: Boxing’s bastardization continues apace. It’s hard to tell whether it’s pantomime or a canny marketing ploy as the YouTuber fighter’s brother steals the undefeated professional boxer’s hat and they get into a heated pre-press conference fight.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. versus Logan Paul looks like the ultimate mismatch, but it’s the latest in a number of lucrative exhibition fights featuring non-professional boxers and would seem to be indicative of boxing’s increasing bastardization.
Mayweather is worth hundreds of millions, with an undefeated professional boxing record of 50-0 and multiple world title belts to his name. Paul has no belts to his name, but plenty of YouTube views — almost six billion and counting. His tale of the tape is short; he’s lost his only professional fight against another YouTuber.
Previously, we’ve seen YouTubers fight YouTubers; we’ve seen boxers fight MMA stars; we’ve even seen Paul’s brother Jake — also a famous YouTuber — fight a former MMA fighter and a former NBA player and win both times.
But on June 6, the worlds of professional boxing and entertainment will collide in the ring.
The money men must be rubbing their hands with glee. When Jake Paul stole Mayweather’s hat before his brother’s press conference and the pair got tangled up in a melee, social media and news outlets exploded with videos and pictures of Mayweather looking furious.

And during the final new conference in Miami Beach before Sunday’s fight, Mayweather stressed that Paul’s stepping into the unknown.
“There is a difference between YouTube boxing and elite boxing — you guys will see the difference,” Mayweather told Sky Sports.

“He’s banking on his height, he’s banking on his reach. So we’ll just see. I have a trained a little bit, here and there, not every day. But I don’t have to.”
For author and boxing historian Mike Silver, who has been a fan of the sport since 1959 and watched greats such as Sonny Liston, Muhammad Ali, Joe Frazier and Sugar Ray Robinson in action, the rise of these money-making fights signals to him that the sport he grew up loving is “dead.”
“Boxing is a business and its business is show business,” said Silver, author of “The Arc of Boxing: The Rise and Decline of the Sweet Science.”
“Boxing is show business. And the only positive thing I can say is that these people make money. I feel like guys, great fighters like Archie Moore, Sugar Ray Robinson, Willie Pep, they must be turning over in their graves.
“[Current fighters] made more in one fight than those fighters, great fighters, made in their entire professional boxing careers.

Exhibition fights are not unusual for boxing. There have been now infamous spectacles. Even the great Ali fought wrestler Antonio Inoki in 1976, an event Silver recalls as being “very disappointing.”

Since Paul and British YouTuber KSI faced off in the first professional boxing match between YouTubers, this offshoot of the fight game has grown rapidly.
According to Jake Paul, his first-round knockout of former UFC fighter Ben Askren in April pulled in 1.5 million pay-per-view buys. And with each one costing $50, the fight generated $75 million, though doubts have been cast over those figures.

Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul: Is It a Fight? ‘It’s Entertainment’ The bout won’t have an official decision since it’s an exhibition. It might have a knockout. It is certain to deliver an oversized share of frivolity.

The notion of this Sunday’s boxing spectacle between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Logan Paul didn’t begin because there was an obvious title at stake, or as the natural culmination of a long-simmering rivalry, but as an out-of-nowhere suggestion.

Paul and his manager, Jeff Levin, were hanging out in the garage of Paul’s suburban Los Angeles home late last year when Levin asked Paul, a YouTube star, whether he’d like to fight Mayweather, the retired welterweight champion. Paul, whose boxing experience includes two bouts against a fellow YouTuber (one as a pro), figured Levin wasn’t serious. Yet by early December, Levin presented a contract and Paul had a deal to meet Mayweather in a live-streamed sparring session at Mayweather’s gym in Las Vegas.

Of course, that agreement wasn’t quite fitting.

It involved Paul, a professional social media self-promoter, who has more than 42 million followers combined on YouTube and Instagram.

It also involved Mayweather, the protagonist in some of the largest-grossing bouts in boxing history. His last bout, against Conor McGregor, drew a reported 4.3 million pay-per-view buys in 2017. Two years earlier, his fight against Manny Pacquiao did 4.6 million buys.

And it is happening in 2021, in an era where high-profile novelty fights involving retired boxers, ball players and social media celebrities have thrust themselves into the sports schedule.

Sunday’s card will feature an undercard bout with the former N.F.L. player Chad Johnson, and the main event pits Mayweather, who has won titles in five weight classes, against Paul, who is 0-1 in sanctioned bouts.

Attracting attention is second nature for Mayweather and Paul. Their exhibition fight, in turn, figures to generate pay-per-view buys for Showtime, which is selling the bout for $49.99.

That bout led to Jake Paul obliterating Ben Askren, a retired mixed martial arts fighter, in the main event of an April Triller card. Jake Paul has since signed a multi-fight deal with Showtime, and he agreed to box the mixed martial arts fighter Tyron Woodley next.

Nonconventional matchups keep forming. The former middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. is signed to fight the retired mixed martial arts legend Anderson Silva on June 19, while Dana White, president of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, reportedly vetoed a similar fight between the 40-year-old U.F.C. fighter Georges St-Pierre and the 48-year-old retired boxer Oscar De La Hoya.

This past Thursday, the champion strongman and “Game of Thrones” star Hafthor Bjornsson boxed a four-round exhibition to help prepare for a September fight against fellow strongman Eddie Hall.

Mayweather vs Logan Paul Fight

Logan Paul has almost no chance to beat Floyd Mayweather when the YouTube star squares off against one of the best boxers of the last half-century on June 6. But that hasn’t stopped more bettors from wagering on Paul to somehow pull off the massive upset in the Showtime PPV event. Yes, the Paul vs. Mayweather odds massively favor the actual boxer, but people are still finding enough value to continue putting their money on Paul.

As of this writing, Paul is a +700 underdog (win $700 on a $100 bet) on BetOnline.ag, while Mayweather is a -1500 favorite (win $100 on a $1,500 bet). But clearly the money has come in on Paul, who is 0-1 in his pro boxing career compared to Mayweather’s record of 50-0.

In late April, Mayweather was a -2000 favorite with Paul’s money line at +900. Originally, Mayweather was as much as a -5000 favorite, and Paul was +1500. But the money lines keep narrowing.

According to OddsChecker spokesman Kyle Newman on Tuesday, 50.2% of the bets placed on the fight have been put on Paul in the previous seven days. While only 46.6% of the wagers have been for Mayweather, that’s still 7% more from the prior week. So even though Paul is still the favorite among bettors, that enthusiasm is declining as the money lines shrink. Meanwhile, 3.3% of bettors are wagering on a draw.

“The odds are too good to pass up Paul, at least that’s what the betting data says,” Newman said. “Despite Paul seemingly having no chance to defeat one of the greatest boxers of all time, bettors continue to back him. Why? The answer seems to be simple, Mayweather isn’t worth betting on at -1600.”

Mayweather’s -1600 money line still gives him an implied chance to win of more than 94%. In reality, Mayweather has a 99.9% chance to win. But that hasn’t stopped people from believing that the taller, heavier Paul can somehow defeat Mayweather.

Even former light heavyweight titlist Jean Pascal, who will face Badou Jack on the Showtime PPV undercard, had nice things to say about the boxing neophyte.

“The reason Logan Paul has all my respect is that right now he’s training with me in Puerto Rico,” Pascal told Radio Canada. “He moved his training camp to Puerto Rico. I did sparring with him and I can tell you that he impressed me. For a beginner he is very good. He is very agile. He is versatile.”

The former WBA light heavyweight champion wants his belt back.

Badou Jack is aiming to win back the WBA light heavyweight title when he faces Jean Pascal on June 6.

The 37-year-old two-division champion will face Pascal as part of the Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul card, with Jack part of the Mayweather Promotions stable.

Many observers felt that Jack had done enough to keep his title when he fought in December 2019 but the decision went the other way, and the fighter is keen to set the record straight, focusing more on revenge than he is the WBA title.

Speaking to the DAZN Boxing Show , he said: “I feel great, I’m confident. I feel like I won the first fight. I’m going to finish what we started.

“It’s easier said than done but that’s what I want. It’s happened too many times. I have a new trainer, Johnathon Banks, I feel great, I’m very confident and I can’t wait.

“I guess, to be honest I don’t really care about the title, I just want my win back. That’s just a bonus.”

Asked about a next fight against the division’s other champions. Artur Beterbiev and Dmitry Bivol, Jack dismissed any other opponent apart from the one on the horizon.

“Right now all the focus is Pascal, I don’t look past him, nobody else. I don’t think about moving up a weight.”

Looking back to the defeat, the American suggested that he would be more ruthless to avoid the match going to decision again, and noted where he had been weak over the 12 rounds.

“Obviously start a little faster. I think the fourth round I started pretty good, I got hit with a big punch in the fourth round. Regardless I thought I won the third. I think that was a slap in my face, it woke me up,” he acknowledged.

“I’m a lot stronger and bigger. I can’t wait. It’s not easy to make the weight, but I had my nutritionist here so I feel great and strong.”

This past Thursday, the champion strongman and “Game of Thrones” star Hafthor Bjornsson boxed a four-round exhibition to help prepare for a September fight against fellow strongman Eddie Hall.

Paul vs Mayweather

FLOYD MAYWEATHER VS. LOGAN PAUL UNDERCARD: BADOU JACK OUT FOR REVENGE

Logan Paul has almost no chance to beat Floyd Mayweather when the YouTube star squares off against one of the best boxers of the last half-century on June 6. But that hasn’t stopped more bettors from wagering on Paul to somehow pull off the massive upset in the Showtime PPV event. Yes, the Paul vs. Mayweather odds massively favor the actual boxer, but people are still finding enough value to continue putting their money on Paul.

As of this writing, Paul is a +700 underdog (win $700 on a $100 bet) on BetOnline.ag, while Mayweather is a -1500 favorite (win $100 on a $1,500 bet). But clearly the money has come in on Paul, who is 0-1 in his pro boxing career compared to Mayweather’s record of 50-0.

In late April, Mayweather was a -2000 favorite with Paul’s money line at +900. Originally, Mayweather was as much as a -5000 favorite, and Paul was +1500. But the money lines keep narrowing.

According to OddsChecker spokesman Kyle Newman on Tuesday, 50.2% of the bets placed on the fight have been put on Paul in the previous seven days. While only 46.6% of the wagers have been for Mayweather, that’s still 7% more from the prior week. So even though Paul is still the favorite among bettors, that enthusiasm is declining as the money lines shrink. Meanwhile, 3.3% of bettors are wagering on a draw.

“The odds are too good to pass up Paul, at least that’s what the betting data says,” Newman said. “Despite Paul seemingly having no chance to defeat one of the greatest boxers of all time, bettors continue to back him. Why? The answer seems to be simple, Mayweather isn’t worth betting on at -1600.”

Mayweather’s -1600 money line still gives him an implied chance to win of more than 94%. In reality, Mayweather has a 99.9% chance to win. But that hasn’t stopped people from believing that the taller, heavier Paul can somehow defeat Mayweather.

Even former light heavyweight titlist Jean Pascal, who will face Badou Jack on the Showtime PPV undercard, had nice things to say about the boxing neophyte.

“The reason Logan Paul has all my respect is that right now he’s training with me in Puerto Rico,” Pascal told Radio Canada. “He moved his training camp to Puerto Rico. I did sparring with him and I can tell you that he impressed me. For a beginner he is very good. He is very agile. He is versatile.”

The former WBA light heavyweight champion wants his belt back.

Badou Jack is aiming to win back the WBA light heavyweight title when he faces Jean Pascal on June 6.

The 37-year-old two-division champion will face Pascal as part of the Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul card, with Jack part of the Mayweather Promotions stable.

Many observers felt that Jack had done enough to keep his title when he fought in December 2019 but the decision went the other way, and the fighter is keen to set the record straight, focusing more on revenge than he is the WBA title.

Speaking to the DAZN Boxing Show , he said: “I feel great, I’m confident. I feel like I won the first fight. I’m going to finish what we started.

“It’s easier said than done but that’s what I want. It’s happened too many times. I have a new trainer, Johnathon Banks, I feel great, I’m very confident and I can’t wait.

“I guess, to be honest I don’t really care about the title, I just want my win back. That’s just a bonus.”

Asked about a next fight against the division’s other champions. Artur Beterbiev and Dmitry Bivol, Jack dismissed any other opponent apart from the one on the horizon.

“Right now all the focus is Pascal, I don’t look past him, nobody else. I don’t think about moving up a weight.”

Looking back to the defeat, the American suggested that he would be more ruthless to avoid the match going to decision again, and noted where he had been weak over the 12 rounds.

“Obviously start a little faster. I think the fourth round I started pretty good, I got hit with a big punch in the fourth round. Regardless I thought I won the third. I think that was a slap in my face, it woke me up,” he acknowledged.

“I’m a lot stronger and bigger. I can’t wait. It’s not easy to make the weight, but I had my nutritionist here so I feel great and strong.”
