So, can one of greatest pound-for-pound boxers of all time beat one of social media's biggest stars? Mayweather vs Logan Paul: Bragging Rights is now underway and Brian Maxwell has dropped Chad Johnson in the 4th. The event got off to a spicy start earlier when Mayweather allegedly punched Logan Paul's brother at the press conference.
"It's one thing to sell a fight, and people can say what they want, but one thing no one is going to do, is disrespect me," Mayweather fumed. "The boxing was the mashed potatoes. I guess these guys now are the gravy."
Mayweather is undefeated (50-0, 27 KOs) having ended his professional career with a 10th-round stoppage of UFC star Conor McGregor back in August 2017. The Money Man might be a 44-year-old dad of five, but his famous speed and accuracy makes him clear favourite to take this bout.
That said, 26-year-old Logan Paul will be 30lb heavier when he steps into the ring today and has a 4-inch reach advantage over his opponent. Paul returns to the ring for the first time after losing to fellow social media star KSI in November by split decision.
It's an exhibition, so there will be no judges and no official winner. Knock outs will be the referee's decision. The eight three-minute rounds will be boxed without headgear. The packed undercard features former NFL star wide receiver Chad Johnson making his boxing debut against Brian Maxwell.

Floyd Mayweather on Logan Paul
"I’ve fought every different style you can possibly fight... Height don’t win fights, weight don’t win fights. Fighting wins fights at the end of the day. And I can fight.
“I’m not worried about what nobody says. One thing I can do – I can fight... I’ve been at the top level for 25 years so I know what it takes when it comes to a fight of this magnitude.
"It’s going to be fun. It’s what I do. There’s a difference between being a YouTube fighter and an elite fighter. I’m a fighter, and I don’t worry about anything. I’ve been a professional for 25 years, and I’ve fought the best and seen every style, and I always came out on top.
"Why not fight Logan Paul? He’s huge on YouTube. He has a huge following. Before I even knew about YouTube, I was huge in boxing. And when you bring his world with my world, man, it’s going to be crazy.
"The boxing was the mashed potatoes. I guess these guys now are the gravy. I retired from boxing, but I didn’t retire from entertainment or from making money."
Logan Paul on Floyd Mayweather
"I didn’t choose boxing; boxing chose me. I got challenged to box, and I answered that challenge. I kind of fell perfectly into the sport. Truthfully, boxing is easier on the body than MMA. MMA is hard. I got bad knees. I’m old now. I’m ageing. My upper body is strong, and I have dense bones. My strength is all in my upper body.
"I'm going in there with that energy, and he's got everything to lose. There's a lot on the table for him, not a lot on the table for me, and that's a dangerous man... It's a fight, so anything can happen."
