As we say - and as you know doubt know - Mayweather is one of the greatest to have ever stepped into the boxing ring and has an unblemished 50-0 professional record. He's a fighter with unrivalled punching accuracy, who could dodge a bullet if he wanted to.
However, he's 44 and used to fighting opponents around 50lb lighter and six-inches shorter than YouTuber-turned-brawler Logan Paul.
But can he make it count? Logan Paul has only fought professionally once - a defeat at the hands of a fellow novice who was both shorter and lighter than him - whereas Mayweather has beaten all of the fellow greats of his era, including the famously hard-hitting Diego Corrales. But Logan Paul did manage to steal Mayweather's cap at the press conference, so at least he's got that!
Love it or hate it, this could be intriguing contest that will almost certainly end with a heavily battered ego. Here's all you need to know about how to watch a Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul live stream.

How to watch Mayweather vs Logan Paul if you're away from your country
As we say, PPV platforms have this wrapped up pretty much everywhere. But if you're abroad and discover that your coverage is geo-blocked, then the only alternative that we know is to use a VPN to dial in to a country that is showing the fight.
The software is generally ideal for this as it allows you to change your IP address and appear to be in a completely different location - and all through a safe, encrypted connection. Here's how to get started.
Use a VPN to live stream boxing from anywhere
ExpressVPN is the world's top VPN
We've tested all of the major VPN services and we rate ExpressVPN as the absolute best. It's compatible with loads of devices including iOS, Android, Amazon Fire Stick, PlayStation, Apple TV and such, and we found it secure, speedy and simple-to-use.
Another great perk is the fact that it comes with a 30-day money back guarantee and 3-months FREE, so you can see if it's right for you with no strings attached.
Once you've downloaded the software, just follow the prompts to install it then select the location you want to relocate your IP address to - it really is that easy.
Remember, there are loads of benefits to using a VPN beyond just helping you regain access to streaming services and content from abroad. One of the biggest is security: by using encrypted tunnels, streaming VPNs give you a robust first-line of defense against cybercriminals and government snooping. This makes everyday tasks like online shopping and banking much safer, and many people choose to use one for that reason alone.

Mayweather vs Logan Paul rules: how it will work
You weren't expecting a regular Queensberry rules bout of pugilism were you? Well, this is going to work rather differently.
For starters, there will be no judges present and so no official winner can be announced (although knockouts are allowed and the referee is permitted to stop the fight if things get out of hand). It will take place over eight three-minute rounds.
And just in case the remarkable happens and Paul manages to KO Mayweather, the boxer's perfect 50-0 record isn't under threat as the 'result' won't appear on any official records. It's the very definition of an exhibition match.
Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul full card
Thanks to failed drug tests and late announcements, it took a while for the full match card to take shape. But this is now the official line-up:
- Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul
- Badou Jack vs Dervin Colina
- Jarrett Hurd vs Luis Arias
- Chad Johnson vs Brian Maxwell
Who is Floyd Mayweather?
Floyd 'Money' Mayweather is one of the greatest pound-for-pound boxers of all time - and widely considered to be the very best the sport has ever seen.
The 44-year-old won all 50 of his professional fights, the first of those against Roberto Apodaca in October 1996, the last against Conor McGregor in August 2017.
He's won 15 major world titles across a multitude of weight divisions, and defeated some of the biggest stars in boxing, including Canelo, Manny Pacquiao, Ricky Hatton, Oscar De La Hoya and José Luis Castillo.
Having retired from boxing three times, Mayweather is consistently linked with a return to the ring - the biggest factor being the size of the purse.
He won his first exhibition match after the end of his professional career emphatically, knocking down kickboxing superstar Tenshin Nasukawa three times in the first round before the towel was thrown in.
Who is Logan Paul?
Logan 'The Maverick' Paul is an internet personality who rose to stardom via his YouTube channel, though in recent years he's sought to expand his fame largely by stoking controversy and causing offense.
The 26-year-old has also forged an extremely lucrative boxing career, which started with a white-collar amateur bout with fellow YouTuber KSI in August 2018.
The fight was declared a majority draw, but KSI won the rematch - this time a professional fight - by split decision in November 2019.
