Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul date: When will fight take place now?

Here’s what we know about the fight so far.

When will Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul take place?

Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul was supposed to be held on Saturday, February 20, but the fight was postponed.

It was rumoured that the reason for the postponement was a lack of interest, however Logan Paul denied that that was the case.

Claiming the decision was down to “business complications”, he said: “The Mayweather fight is pushed [back] which I am completely OK with.

“The fight’s still happening [but] we want to have a packed arena somewhere and then the business side of things, we have to iron them out.

“He’s got a lot of people on his team, [his advisor] Al Haymon got involved, if you know boxing, you know what that means for getting an actual deal done and figuring out a venue.

“I need as much practice, training, sparring under my belt against this guy.

“With every day that goes past I get better and he gets older.”

The Athletic are reporting that the fight will take place on Saturday, June 5.

Despite no venue being agreed yet, Mayweather revealed that it will take place in either Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, Dallas or Atlanta.

What TV channel and live stream will Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul be on?

In February, Logan Paul claimed that Al Haymon had announced the fight would be on Showtime in the US.

The network broadcast Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor stateside and look set to take this PPV event.

Both Mayweather vs McGregor and Logan Paul vs KSI were shown on Sky Sports Box Office in the UK, so that could well be the channel for any eventual fight between Mayweather and Paul.

However, no UK broadcaster has been announced for the potential fight yet.
