KEY POINTS

  • The Mayweather-Paul fight is likely to be moved
  • Jake Paul admits that hiccups have marred the upcoming fight with Mayweather
  • A new fight date has yet to be set 

Until now, it appeared that it was all systems go for the upcoming exhibition fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and YouTuber Logan Paul.

The clash is set for Feb. 20, but it seems that plans have suffered a setback.

Reports from multiple outlets are claiming that the Mayweather vs. Paul bout is being postponed to a later date.

The fact that details on the fight other than the date hardly makes it surprising. No venue or rules for the exhibition fight have been revealed.

Considering that the fight date is barely a month away, these are red flags tied to the pay-per-view.

Paul acknowledged that they had stumbled across complications as far as the Feb. 20 fight date. However, he added that the fight with Mayweather is still going to happen although potentially at a later date.

"We're figuring it out now. There were some complications with--actually, I don't know how much I can say. I will say this, the complications are when you're dealing with someone like Floyd Mayweather," Paul said to Night Shift Gaming.

The 25-year-old knows that getting the chance to face an undefeated boxer with a massive following is not easy to make.

These were the hiccups that were to be expected, and the best that Paul and his camp can do right now is try to work things out and move forward.

"There are a lot of hoops to jump through, there a lot of people involved, and you've only got one shot at it so you need to get it absolutely 1,000 percent right. We're just making sure we're doing that," he stated.

"But yeah, I'm still going to beat the sh** out of Floyd Mayweather. Or, maybe he's going to beat the sh** out of me, who knows? Point is, it's still going to happen," Paul continued.

Regardless of when the Mayweather vs. Paul fight will take place, it remains that the 43-year-old remains the heavy favorite. The YouTuber only has one fight to his credit, a loss to another internet sensation in KSI.

Mayweather, on the other hand, needs no elaboration. He is undefeated both in competitive and exhibition fights. Among his last victims include Conor McGregor and Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa.
