The exhibition between Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul is now official for June 6 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami.

Mayweather posted the announcement on his Instagram, while Paul posted the same thing on Twitter.

The video notes that the fight will be promoted by Fanmio — originally the PPV partner for the event, which was meant for February but canceled — as well as Showtime.

The June 6 date means that Mayweather-Paul will take place on a Sunday, which is rare in general for boxing events and basically unheard of for boxing pay-per-view anymore. But that keeps it from going head-to-head on pay-per-view with Teofimo Lopez vs George Kambosos Jr from Triller Fight Club, which is also reportedly going to take place in Miami.

The 44-year-old Mayweather (50-0, 27 KO) hasn’t fought officially since 2017, when he beat Conor McGregor. He did do an exhibition in Japan against kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa at the end of 2018.

Paul, 26, is not the Paul brother who just beat Ben Askren. That is Jake Paul, who is slightly younger and better at boxing. Logan Paul has an official boxing record of 0-1, losing a controversial decision to fellow YouTube celebrity KSI in 2019.
