Ring legend Mayweather initially retired from boxing in 2015, returning two years later to beat UFC star Conor McGregor and extend his record to 50-0, surpassing Rocky Marciano’s long-standing record.
The 44-year-old has made no secret of his desire to fight in exhibition bouts if the price is right having also fought Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in a money-spinning spectacle in 2018.

The Paul fight promises to be another hugely lucrative affair with big pay-per-view numbers expected.
Logan, The older of the Paul brothers, has fought once under professional rules, losing a split decision to fellow YouTube star KSI in 2019.
