Logan Paul, the professional YouTuber and content creator with an amateur boxing record of 0-1 has somehow confirmed an exhibition boxing match with Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr. Mayweather must smell easy money.
Logan Paul is the older brother of Jake Paul, also a YouTube content creator, who entered the ring with Nate Robinson last week. Despite the brother’s similarities, Logan seems to be in over his head with the Mayweather fight looming. We have only seen Logan fight in two exhibition fights vs. KSI, and most people will agree that he is doomed against Mayweather. Below is Logans last fight against KSI that went to a decision.
To be fair, Logan probably would have won the fight if not for the deductions he received, but it was close. The most significant difference between Logan’s last opponent and his next is that KSI is a YouTube content creator from the UK, Mayweather is a decorated professional boxer.
Floyd Mayweather is also considered by many to be the best boxer ever with a perfect 50-0 professional fight record. In Mayweather’s last fight, he went toe to toe with UFC elite Conor McGregor where he beat him easily by dancing around for a few rounds before taking McGregor out in the 10th.
Some fans later accused Mayweather of milking the clock so that future events will be seen as worthy for pay-per-view (PPV). However, Mayweather is known to dodge for a few rounds while his opponent tires before going for the win.
Oddsmakers seem to agree on one thing, Mayweather is going to win. Not long after the fight was announced, 18+ online sportsbooks started posting odds for the fight. Below are the current odds offered at BetOnline.
- Mayweather, Floyd -5000
- Paul, Logan +1500

While this fight’s value is on Logan Paul’s side ($100 bet wins $1500), most bettors will save their money as that outcome is not likely. However, if you feel that Logan Paul can take out the 43-year-old legend, put your money down because these odds can’t be beaten.
Whatever the fight’s outcome, it is sure to draw big money on PPV, and Logan Paul will have more content for his YouTube page.
