Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul fight reportedly agreed for this year

Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul? It looks like it's on!

Floyd Mayweather has been hinting at a boxing comeback for years now.

The last time 'The Money Man' stepped into the ring in a professional setting was in 2017, when he defeated UFC superstar Conor McGregor to take his record to 50-0-0.

Since that record-breaking fight, Mayweather has partaken in an exhibition bout against Japanese kick boxer Tenshin Nasukawa back in December 2018, a fight which the American won with ease.

The 43-year-old is now officially in 'retirement' but we all know that Mayweather will make a comeback if the financial rewards on offer are lucrative enough.

Well, it looks like that scenario looks is about to play out once again.

That's because stunning reports suggest Mayweather is set to fight YouTube sensation Logan Paul in an exhibition bout this year.

YouTuber Keemstar posted on his official Twitter page - which has 2.8 million followers - that a 'boxing insider' had informed him of an agreement between the two parties.

The Fighting News' Mike Feinberg backed up the claims made by Keemstar, declaring that a contract has already been signed.

"Floyd Mayweather Jr is coming out of retirement and has just officially signed a contract to fight in an exhibition match against Logan Paul," Feinberg said.

"I don't understand the fight. Logan Paul has tried his hand at professional boxing against the other nobody [that] nobody's ever heard of before.

"[Paul's] now 0-1 and he's going to be fighting one of the best in Floyd Mayweather.

"It's going to be a joke of a fight, but it's signed. It's official.

"I heard it from a reputable source today and even saw the signed picture of the signed contract.

"Floyd signed on the dotted line for this exhibition match."

Paul made his professional boxing debut last year, losing to fellow YouTube sensation KSI in Los Angeles.

Now, it looks like the 25-year-old is set to take on one of the greatest fighters to have graced the sport, despite possessing a 0-1-0 record.

To tell you the truth, it's near enough impossible to get excited about the prospect of the bout, but as we all know, money talks.
