How To Watch Mayweather vs Logan Paul Live: It might not be a great boxing match, but it should be a spectacle in Miami Gardens when the undefeated, former five-weightclass world champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. takes on Logan Paul on Sunday, June 6th.
The card is expected to start about 8:00 p.m. ET, with the main event happening about 10:30-11:00 p.m. ET. It’s scheduled for eight rounds, and is technically an exhibition because Paul outweighs Mayweather by about 30 pounds on most days. The weight limit is set at 190 pounds, but expect Mayweather to come in at 85% of that at best.
But it really shouldn’t matter in the middle of the ring, where the 44-year-old former champion with a 50-0 career record is a massive favorite over the 0-1 career Youtube celebrity. Paul’s only other career fight was in November of 2019, where he lost to fellow Youtube celebrity KSI by split decision thanks to point deductions.
There’s no way Mayweather is putting his legacy on the line here without believing he’s a massive favorite, and the bookmakers tend to agree. Most places accepting wagers have Mayweather as about a -1400 favorite, making Paul about a +700 underdog.
If you’re looking to buy the Showtime pay-per-view event, it’s probably easiest to do on Fanmio.com, where it’ll cost you $49.99. You can also just get it via Showtime through your cable or streaming service provider, which should charge you the same $49.99.
Also on the card is Miami resident and former NFL wide receiver Chad Johnson, who at age 43 will be making his boxing debut. It’s a four-round exhibition, and his opponent Brian Maxwell is 0-3 as a professional. He turned down the opportunity to fight former teammate Pacman Jones instead. YouTube star Paul has only ever had one professional fight against fellow YouTuber KSI, and he ended up losing the bout to the Brit.
