Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul Live Fight Updates, Results, 2021 Boxing Show Highlights
Arguably the greatest boxer of the past 30 years returns to action on Sunday night. Floyd Mayweather will return to the ring at 44 to face one-time opponent, YouTube celebrity Logan Paul, in an eight-round exhibition bout at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Fla.
Mayweather retired from boxing in 2017 after defeating MMA superstar Conor McGregor to move to 50-0. “Money” then pledged to only participate in exhibition fights in the future. His latest opponent lives on social networks. Paul, 26, has only played one boxing match, and he lost it to fellow YouTuber KSI in 2019. While Paul’s chances are slim to none in this fight, he has a bit intriguing as he will have a six- inch height advantage and outweigh his opponent of over 30 pounds.
It’s a fight no one necessarily asked for, but it has gained significant momentum over the weeks, less of a boxing match than a show. This was only heightened when Mayweather was involved in an altercation with Paul’s younger brother Jake at a press conference. Construction has bordered on the odd but it is sure to be one of the most watched fights in 2021.
The card will also feature the boxing debut of former NFL wide receiver Chad Johnson, who will face Brian Maxwell in a cruiserweight show. Badou Jack will face Devin Colinal while Jarrett Hurd returns to action against Luis Arias in an intriguing junior middleweight fight.

8:35 p.m .: Johnson looked good in round four until he ate a huge right hand from Maxwell that put him on the canvas. Johnson was so injured that he jumped up and tried to punch his opponent. He was clearly baffled but survived the last 30 seconds and the fight. There are no official scores but
8:31 p.m .: We finally have a visual! Chad Johnson is in the 3rd round against Brian Maxwell and it looks like Johnson is not necessarily terrible. He and Maxwell both fight over the fences.
8:23 p.m .: Apparently Chad Johnson is on his way to the ring. But we can’t say because the Showtime app still isn’t working and a lot of people are upset that they can’t see Johnson’s boxing debut. We think.
8:12 p.m .: Almost 15 minutes after the start of the broadcast and the servers are still down on Fanmio and Showtime. We should have seen this coming because the boxing gods must not be happy that this event is taking place.
8:04 p.m..: Let the ridicule begin! Oh, wait. The Showtime servers have gone down. Maybe because of the high demand? We’re not getting off on the right foot.
