The exhibition clash between boxing legend Floyd Mayweather and YouTube star Logan Paul has been postponed.
Mayweather vs. Paul was scheduled to take place on February 20. It was set to air live on PPV through Fanmio, where PPV purchases were already being made. It looks like fight fans will have to wait a bit longer for this exhibition.
Rumors have been swirling with claims that the event has been canceled due to a lack of interest. Paul was quick to shut down those rumors and insists the date is simply being pushed back.
Here’s what Paul had to say on the matter during a recent appearance on Night Shift Gaming (h/t talkSPORT).
Paul said there are many moving parts to getting things done whenever a superstar the magnitude of Mayweather is involved.
“But yeah, we’re figuring it out now. There was some complications with – actually, I don’t know how much I can say.
“I’ll say this – the complications are when you are dealing with someone like Floyd Mayweather who is the most desired, highest paid fighter on the planet and he operates at a certain caliber, and the people around him want to make sure their talent, their fighter is performing at a certain level, there are a lot of hoops to jump through.”
