Mayweather admits to having 'no strategy' ahead of Logan Paul bout

Boxing great Floyd Mayweather Jr is set to face YouTuber Logan Paul in a somewhat mismatched exhibition bout at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium on Sunday 6 June.

The fight was originally scheduled for February, but was delayed because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Mayweather undefeated, inexperienced Logan Paul yet to win

Mayweather, 44, retired from professional boxing in 2017 with a 50-0 record, having won world titles in no fewer than five weight classes during an illustrious, two-decade career.

Paul's boxing record is rather less impressive: the 26-year-old met fellow social-media star KSI in two exhibition fights in 2018 and 2019, drawing the first and losing the second.

'No strategy'

Speaking to Barstool Sports just a few days ahead of the bout, Mayweather confirmed that he had not planned a strategy ahead of the fight. The 44-year-old brashly stated: "If I want it to go just one round then it'll be one, if I want it to end in round 2...It's all up to me".

How can I watch Mayweather vs Paul?

The Mayweather vs Paul fight, which is due to begin at 8pm EDT, will be available to watch on a pay-per-view basis on Showtime US (United States only) and Fanmio (worldwide), at a price of $49.99.
