Retired boxing champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. announced Sunday he will return to the ring in a “super exhibition” against YouTuber Logan Paul.
The match is scheduled for February 20, 2021, according to a post from Floyd on his Instagram page.
The bout will be available via pay-per-view, according to the event’s website.
The first 1 million purchases will cost $24.99, increasing to $39.99 when the threshold is reached.
On December 29, the price jumps to $59.99 and then to $69.99 on February 11.
The announcement comes one week after Paul’s brother, Jake Paul, knocked out former NBA player Nate Robinson.
Logan Paul has fought before. He twice fought vlogger and rapper Olajide “KSI” Olatunji with the first bout ending in a draw and a second with KSI’s victory over Paul.
Mayweather, who was undefeated in his career with a record of 50-0, is considered one of boxing’s all-time greats.
