Floyd Mayweather Jr. It’s scheduled for June 6 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami.

Death of the “wonderful” Marvin Hagler
Mayweather, 44, hasn’t fought since a 2018 show against a Japanese kickboxer, and his last professional fight was against UFC legend Conor McGregor. The latter was the most-watched PPV event in history, surpassing Mayweather’s unanimous 2015 knockout decision over former champion Manny Pacquiao for his 50th career professional victory. He has held title belts in five divisions: junior lightweight, lightweight, junior welterweight, welterweight and junior middleweight.
Paul, who performed in the last year valley girl remake, is 26 and has only fought once, losing a 2019 exhibition to British YouTuber KSI at Staples Center in Los Angeles. Her brother, Jake Paul, also stepped into the ring after making a name for himself – and acquiring some infamy – on YouTube.
