While a match between the two has been rumored for a long time, the possibility of seeing it happen seemed like a distant dream.
This is due to the fact that one would have never quite imagined that Mayweather, who has a stupendous 50-0 record, would feel the need to actually respond to Logan Paul, who has only had one professional boxing match so far, in which he ended up on the losing side.
Yet here we are in 2020, with both Mayweather and Paul announcing the mouth-watering clash on their social media handles:
Early-bird tickets are currently priced at $24.99, though the main interest will understandably revolve around the money that Mayweather and Paul will be making off this fight.
With the match scheduled for the 20th of February, 2021, and the pair standing to make millions of dollars from the bout, fans could not believe their eyes when they logged onto Twitter recently.
The initial shock eventually gave way to hilarious memes online, most of which were directed at Logan Paul, as the online community believes that he may have just committed a cardinal sin by knocking on the door of Floyd "The Money" Mayweather.
