Floyd Mayweather will be taking his exhibition fight against YouTuber Logan Paul ‘very seriously’ as he regards it as a ‘real fight’.
Mayweather – who has a 50-0 undefeated record from his sensational boxing career – will take on the 25-year-old social media star in February 2021.
Despite being the overwhelming favorite to win, the veteran boxer, 43, is said to be training ‘extensively’ as the fight’s promoter claims knockouts will be allowed.
Mayweather is expected to emerge victorious against Paul – who has had just two fights against fellow YouTuber KSI.
However, Mayweather is adamant he must be prepared for all eventualities as he believes the bout will be a ‘historical fight’ that could open to the door to various ‘opportunities’.
Solomon Engel, founder and CEO of Fanmio, told The Sun: ‘I think Floyd is going to have fun with it but he’s taking it very seriously.
‘Floyd trains extensively and I don’t think he’s going to go into this fight and not be prepared. He’s very excited for the fight.
‘He sees some big opportunities here, and I don’t want to speak for him but I think we all feel this could be a very historical fight and a number of different levels.’ Source dailymail
