Floyd’s Numbers Don’t Lie
Mayweather Jr. is most known for his undefeated professional streak. He earned his 50th and final win before retiring against former UFC superstar Conor McGregor.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. could make a remarkable return to boxing by fighting YouTube personality Logan Paul, according to reports.

Logan’s No Rookie
Despite the perception, Paul has actually fought in the past. Before the coronavirus pandemic, Logan made headlines for taking his talent to the boxing ring in Los Angeles.
Logan Paul first went pro for his second fight with rival YouTuber KSI in November, throwing down in the Los Angeles Staples Center on an all-professional undercard that signaled a potentially bright future in boxing for both competitors. However, considering the current state of world affairs, many fights have been postponed — including the upcoming Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr. bout, the undercard of which Jake Paul is also set to fight on.
