Floyd Mayweather officially starts training camp for his exhibition fight against Logan Paul next month

Boxing icon Floyd Mayweather has officially started his training camp for his exhibition fight against Logan Paul next month.

The five-weight world champion has agreed to take on the YouTuber-turned-boxer in an exhibition bout at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami which will be shown on pay-per-view on June 6.

Mayweather, who has a 50-0 record, last fought professionally in August 2017 when he stopped UFC star Conor McGregor in the 10th round.

Paul, meanwhile, has only one fight on his record, which came via a split-decision loss to fellow YouTuber KSI in November 2019.

Earlier this week, Gareth A Davies warned Mayweather he is tarnishing his legacy by fighting the YouTube star.

“He may not land one punch,” Davies told Hawksbee and Rushden on talkSPORT.

“I thought the limit of acceptability and I did do a lot of work on it and it was an extraordinary event – was Floyd Mayweather against Conor McGregor.

“He had a kind of amateur boxing pedigree, who was a massive star in the world of UFC and mixed martial arts at the time and it was a cross over.

“But this is a smash and grab raid for me, in many ways. I won’t be staying up for it and I won’t be paying for it.”
