Logan Paul claims Floyd Mayweather fight will be 'massive boxing event' and be broadcast on Showtime

LOGAN PAUL has claimed his fight against Floyd Mayweather will be a 'massive boxing event' and is going to be broadcast on American TV network Showtime.

The YouTuber turned boxer was initially set to face Mayweather in an exhibition on February 20, but those plans were then put on hold.

And now Paul has claimed that legendary manager/advisor Al Haymon has come on board to help stage the event.

Speaking on his podcast IMPAULSIVE, he said: “I think I can say, I believe Al Haymon just went on Showtime and announced that it’ll be on Showtime.

“Al Haymon’s now involved. We’re going to do it right at the highest level of any massive, massive boxing event. Let’s get it."

Paul also addressed those who are suggesting he may be afraid of Mayweather, who retired with a perfect 50-0 record.

“People are asking me if I’m like scared. No, no I’m not scared," he added.

“The feelings I’m getting right now are just excitement.

“I’m excited, I’m blessed to have this opportunity and I think we’re gonna wow a lot of people.

“I just don’t believe I’m gonna get in there and people are gonna see what they expect to see.”

Haymon, who worked closely with Mayweather during his stellar career, has not commented on Paul's claims.

Paul made his professional boxing debut in November 2019 but lost a split decision to fellow internet sensation KSI.

Meanwhile, his brother Jake Paul, who is facing MMA fighter Ben Askren in April, has been trying to goad UFC superstar Conor McGregor into a dust-up.
