Logan, 26, is a successful youtuber who made his professional boxing debut only in November 2019, falling against fellow youtuber KSI. Logan’s brother, also youtuber Jake Paul, is the one who has had the most success in professional boxing, now with a 3-0 record and 3 knockouts, without having faced a professional boxer so far.

One of the issues that have not been clarified regarding this meeting, is the weight they will be at and under what conditions, mainly the weight, since Logan Paul weighed 199 pounds for his fight with KSI, and Mayweather never fought as a professional above of 154 lbs.
