The contest was initially booked for February 20th before it was postponed with little to no explanation. Rumors went around the internet that the fight was canceled due to a lack of interest from fans.
"The Floyd Mayweather fight is pushed, you may have heard the rumblings, which I am actually completely okay with. We knew it was gonna be pushed for a minute now. COVID... some business complication, is what I can say. Fight is still happening, so easy with the rumors that there is 'no interest'. I do feel the need to say that this fight broke every single combat sports record for presale pay-per-view numbers... shattered. I don't wanna get the narrative twisted," Logan Paul said on Impaulsive.
He also revealed that news of the postponement got out because of a leak inside their camp, which triggered wide speculations about the fight not garnering enough interest.
The fight was first rescheduled to be on June 5th but was then delayed by a day to avoid a clash with the Triller Fight Club pay-per-view Teofimo Lopez vs George Kambosos, which takes place on the same date.
