Logan Paul is currently 25 and has only fought in one professional boxing match, losing against fellow YouTuber KSI in 2019.
The fight is due to take place on February 20th2021 and is expected to draw in a huge number of pay-per-view spectators. Mayweather has said, “These YouTube girls better find some Barbie dolls to play with cause I’m not the one for the kid games…. Three years ago, a fighter from the UFC said my name and I had to put a muzzle on that bitch. Logan Paul can get the same treatment before I go conquer Japan again.”
