(Reuters) – Floyd Mayweather returns to the boxing ring in February for an exhibition match against YouTube personality Logan Paul, the undefeated former world champion announced on Instagram on Sunday.
43-year-old Mayweather, with a flawless 50-0 record, last fought professionally in August 2017 when he won by TKO against mixed martial arts champion Conor McGregor, who made his boxing debut.
The five-weight division world champion said he will step into the ring at a location yet to be determined on February 20 to face Paul, who has a record of 0-1. This defeat comes against his colleague YouTuber KSI.
The fight is the newest exhibition fight featuring aging former champions and celebrities.
Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson, now 54, returned to the ring last month to face Roy Jones Jr. in a draw for a charity show.
