Floyd Mayweather and YouTuber Logan Paul made a surprising announcement over the weekend that seemed to come out of left field. The undefeated former boxing champion announced that he would be facing off against Paul in an exhibition boxing match on February 20, 2021.

Of course, there are already betting odds.

As expected, Mayweather is an overwhelming -5000 favorite while Paul sits at +1500.

That means that if a bettor puts $5,000 on Mayweather and he wins, the return would be just $100. On the flip side, a $100 wager on Paul would return $1,500.

Mayweather has not fought since August 2017.

Logan Paul, meanwhile, has not fought inside of the squared circle since last year when he lost a six-round split decision to fellow YouTuber KSI.

In order for action on the fight to be accepted, the fight must take place on February 20, 2021, and “grading will be based on the WBC (or governing body promoting match) announcement of unofficial winner.”
