Floyd Mayweather reportedly set to fight YouTube star Logan Paul

The American superstar hasn’t fought professionally since his 2017 win over Conor McCregor, which took his record to a perfect 50-0, with 27 knockouts.

He also travelled to Japan for an exhibition bout with kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in late 2018, earning $13.4 million for two minutes’ work after a first-round KO.

But now the 43-year-old multi-weight world champion is rumoured to be considering a sensational return to face Paul, a controversial figure who has only fought once as a professional – losing a split decision to fellow YouTuber KSI last year.
