The fight marks Mayweather’s return to the ring since retiring after a 10th-round stoppage win over UFC star Conor McGregor in August 2017. Paul’s appearance, meantime, comes a little over a month after his brother, Jake Paul, took on Ben Askren at the Triller Fight Club event in April (FITE is showing unlimited replays of that fight until July 17).

Mayweather vs. Paul: Fight Card, Format, Odds
Tonight’s fight will be the first meeting between Floyd “Money” Mayweather and Logan “Maverick” Paul. This is an eight-round special exhibition produced by Mayweather’s “Mayweather Promotions” in conjunction with FANMIO and Mavathltcs. Each round will be three minutes long.
At 6 foot 2 inches, YouTuber Paul holds a four-inch advantage over Mayweather, and he’s weighing in at around 190 pounds compared to Mayweather’s leaner 160. But Mayweather is one of the all-time boxing greats, holding a 50-0 record with 27 KOs. Paul’s only previous “professional” boxing match experience was against fellow YouTuber KSI, with their last meeting ending in a split-decision win for KSI.
Unsurprisingly, Vegas oddsmakers have Mayweather as the overwhelming favorite, citing his experience, power and range of fighting and attacking styles in the ring.
The rest of the Mayweather vs. Paul fight card will feature three matches: Badou Jack vs. Jean Pascal in a 12-round WBA Light Heavyweight Title Fight. This is a rematch of their fight in 2019, which ended in a controversial win for Pascal.
The undercard also features Jarrett Hurd vs. Luis Arias in a 10-round Super Welterweight Bout. The final match features former NFL player Chad Johnson making his televised boxing debut in a four-round exhibition against Brian Maxwell. Johnson, who once went by “Ochocinco,” has changed his nickname ahead of the fight to Chad “Sweet Feet” Johnson.
