The exhibition boxing match between undefeated former boxing champion Floyd Mayweather and YouTuber Logan Paul which was originally scheduled for February 20 has been postponed.
Fanmio founder and CEO Solomon Engel announced the news in a statement to ESPN.com.
No reason for the postponement was announced.
“After an absolutely tremendous response to the fight announcement, we’re hoping to announce a new date very soon along with some new exciting details,” Engel said.
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.
As you may expect, Mayweather is an overwhelming favorite in the fight.
Mayweather is a -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.
In order for action on the fight to be accepted, the fight must take place, and “grading will be based on the WBC (or governing body promoting match) announcement of unofficial winner.”
Do you still think the fight will happen following the postponement or is Fanmio — which was set to air the fight live on pay-per-view — setting us all up for an eventual cancellation of the bout? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
