Floyd Mayweather versus Logan Paul: Battle card, PPV value, date, rules, area for the 2021 display match

Showtime Boxing returns to PPV this weekend with an event you won't want to miss. Undefeated and retired five-division champion Floyd Mayweather is back in an exhibition match against social media influencer Logan Paul on Sunday, June 6, from Miami Gardens, Florida. Mayweather last fought professionally against UFC star Conor McGregor in 2017, but has taken a couple of exhibition matches in his retired time.

Paul has only fought once as a professional, losing a decision to fellow YouTuber KSI. Paul is 6-foot-2 and last fought as a at the 200-pound cruiserweight limit. Compared to Mayweather at 5-foot-8 and roughly 150 pounds, Paul is the much bigger man. He is also 18 years younger than Mayweather.

But standing across from him in the ring will be arguably the most accomplished boxer in the sport's illustrious history. Mayweather owns a 50-0 record with championships across five weight classes. He also earned a bronze medal at the 1996 Olympics as an amateur with a controversial loss to Serafim Simeonov Todorov of Bulgaria. Paul, on the other hand, lost his only pro bout to date to another YouTube star in KSI.

Another interesting figure is making his boxing debut on the card as former NFL wide receiver Chad Johnson will fight Brian Maxwell, a mixed martial arts and bare knuckle fighting veteran. But a bit of an issue popped up just a week before the event when the co-main event fell apart. Jean Pascal, who was slated to rematch Badou Jack at light heavyweight, tested positive for three different steroids in his pre-fight screening and was forced out of action. Jack still intends to fight on the card, but is awaiting a new opponent.

Below is the full fight card along with all the info you'll need to watch the action on Showtime PPV.

Showtime Boxing results, highlights: Nonito Donaire stops Nordine Oubaali to reclaim bantamweight title at 38
The Filipino legend took apart the WBC titleholder in the main event on Saturday night from Carson, California

Already a future Hall of Famer in waiting, four-division champion Nonito Donaire continues to defy Father Time by daring to be great in search of more hardware. 

Donaire (41-6, 27 KOs), the 38-year-old slugger from the Philippines, shattered his own record as the oldest fighter in boxing history to win a world title at 118 pounds when he dropped WBC champion Nordine Oubaali (17-1, 12 KOs) a trio of times on Saturday en route to an emphatic fourth-round knockout at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California. 

"The Filipino Flash" had previously stopped Ryan Burnett in 2018 to win the WBA bantamweight title when he was 35. 

"The King has returned," Donaire said. "You know, being at this age is really not the question, it's my performance. It's really the ability to grow. I believe that it matters not what your age is, it matters in how you are mentally.

"Father Time has been on my side. I believe the human body is an incredible machine if we take care of it. That's the question, taking care of our body allows it to be as strong as we can be. 

Because mentally, we're only as strong as our mind can be."

Donaire returned to the ring for the first time in 18 months when he co-authored 2019's Fight of the Year in a spirited decision loss to unbeaten destroyer Naoya Inoue, in a fight in which Donaire broke the Japanese pound-for-pound star's eye socket.  

"What I learned from Inoue is [that] I'm back," Donaire said. "I knew that I was not fighting, I was learning. I'm ready for the next one."

Oubaali, a southpaw from France, was unable to avoid Donaire's power while looking to establish the pace with his aggressive and awkward style. 

Donaire dropped Oubaali midway through Round 3 with a left hook and scored a second knockdown with another left hand at the bell to close the round. Referee Jack Reiss initially appeared as if he had waived off the fight only to administer a count to a visibly hurt Oubaali in order to give him a chance to beat it. 

"I know what his pattern was," Donaire said. "I knew exactly what he was gonna do. He was showing his weakness, so I was able to counter him with the hook."

One round later, Donaire put Oubaali away for good with a three-punch combination ending with a body shot against the ropes. Oubaali crumbled to the ground and Reiss instantly waived the fight off without a count at 1:52 of Round 4.  

After the fight, Donaire continued to pursue interest in a rematch against Inoue (20-0, 17 KOs), the WBA and IBF champion, who returns June 19 to defend his titles in Las Vegas against Michael Dasmarinas. 

"That's my next goal," Donaire said. "The only thing I have not accomplished in this sport is becoming undisputed, so that's my next match."

Devin Haney survives late flurry from Jorge Linares, scores decision win to retain lightweight title
Haney looked crisp early before a combination in the later rounds made things interesting

For nearly 10 full rounds on Saturday, WBC lightweight champion Devin Haney seemed to be even better than advertised in his biggest fight to date. But the 22-year-old was hurt by former three-division champion Jorge Linares late and was forced to cautiously survive until the final bell.  

Fighting off boos from the crowd at Michelob Ultra Arena in Las Vegas for excessive holding in Round 12, Haney (26-0, 15 KOs) came away with a unanimous decision win that was closer on the three judges' scorecards than the majority of the fight seemed to suggest. 

Haney, in the third defense of his WBC title at 135 pounds (Teofimo Lopez Jr. is the WBC franchise champion), took home scores of 116-112, 116-112 and 115-113. CBS Sports also scored the fight for Haney, 117-111. 

"I came in here and got the win and I'm satisfied," Haney said. "The fans wanted to see if I could walk my opponent down and I showed it all. I could box and I could bang. He hit me with a big shot late but I faced adversity for the first time and I survived. I didn't get dropped and I didn't get hurt. I got hit with a big shot and [the crowd] acted crazy."

Linares (47-6, 29 KOs) was widely outlanded throughout by a margin of 215 to 116, according to CompuBox, until his surge that began late in Round 10. Yet having entered the fight in fantastic physical shape at 35, the story of this one wasn't about his age or accrued wear and tear. 

Instead, this very much looked to be the true coming-out party for Haney following a pair of passive and boring victories in his last two fights against Alfredo Santiago and Yuriorkis Gamboa. Haney was aggressive and slick without being irresponsible defensively as he targeted Linares' body and routinely gave the veteran fits with his speed advantage. 

Then, suddenly, all of that appeared to change in the closing seconds of Round 10 when a beautiful three-punch combination from Linares, which ended with a short right cross, sent Haney staggering back to his corner after the bell. 

"It was a good shot," Haney said. "I was never hurt and I still continued to box smart. You still have to continue to do what you can and I did that."

Linares attacked Haney in Round 11 and twice more appeared to hurt him with short left hooks. The crowd slowly began to boo the more Haney routinely forced a clinch in order to get his legs back under him but Linares cemented the round in his favor with a trio of right hands on the break late. 

The final round, however, saw Haney appear to deserve the negative attention he was receiving from the crowd. Despite being aggressive to open the round, Haney exclusively held over the final 90 seconds, including a sequence in which he was separated from the clinch with Linares by referee Russell Mora only run forward to grab Linares again around the waist. 

"[In Round 12], I continued to box smart and use my jab and my feints. That's what I continued to do," Haney said. "I knew that he was going to come in here and this was a huge opportunity for him so he was going to do whatever it was needed. He took big shots from me."

Haney was asked after the fight whether he would be interested next in a unification fight of sorts against Lopez, who holds all four recognized titles at 135 after upsetting Vasiliy Lomachenko in 2020 (despite the WBC muddying the waters by recognizing him as franchise champion). It's a difficult bout to make politically although Haney showed interest.

"Of course I want to make the biggest fights happen," Haney said. "If Teofimo Lopez is next, let's do it. Let's do it for all the belts and the real undisputed." 

Boxing Pound-for-Pound Rankings: Josh Taylor enters the fray after unifying; Canelo Alvarez holds at No. 1
The new undisputed king at 140 pounds has quietly putting together a fantastic resume with eyes on bigger fights

It's time to give "The Tartan Tornado" his flowers. 

After hovering close to the top 10 rankings in recent years, Josh Taylor (18-0, 13 KOs) finally made it to the pound-for-pound party following a brilliant unanimous decision win over fellow unified junior welterweight champion Jose Ramirez in their long-awaited undisputed championship bout. 

Becoming just the second fighter in the four-belt era to win all four titles at 140 pounds, Taylor showcased a perfect balance between boxer and puncher as he floored Ramirez twice and largely kept the fight on his own terms by taking away his opponent's jab and operating in the mid-range. 

The lanky southpaw, who previously unified titles by outlasting Regis Prograis in a 2019 thriller, has gained worldwide notoriety within the sport the old-fashioned way by taking on difficult challenges and, in the case of the Ramirez fight, traveling from his native Scotland to Las Vegas in pursuit of a career-defining victory. 

A recent union with trainer Ben Davison, who helped guide heavyweight champion Tyson Fury's comeback in 2018, has turned out to be a fruitful one as Taylor took on far less damage against Ramirez than he did in the Prograis fight while showcasing brilliant footwork and an increased focus on body punching.
