Floyd Mayweather will finally come out of retirement to take on YouTuber Logan Paul in a bout which is slated for February 20, 2021.

The 43-year-old confirmed the bout on Social Media to announce his return to action having fought last in August 2017 against Conor McGregor to take his record to 50-0.

Mayweather was involved in an exhibition match in December 2018 against Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa where he made $9million for just 139 seconds of work.

According to him, tickets for his fight with 25-year-old Logan Paul are already selling as both are set to make millions.

It will then increase to $69.99 (£52.16) for the final days of build-up, starting February 11.

Anticipating a possible fight, Paul who recently turned a professional in boxing had referred to Mayweather as an illiterate. He said:

"At first I thought you didn't sign it because you didn't want one punch to ruin your legacy.
"But now I feel like maybe you didn't sign it because you don't know how to spell your name.
"Don't worry, champ, I've got you - check this out. I made you a cheat sheet."

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Mike Tyson finally returned to the boxing rings for the first time in 15 years in an exhibition fight against Roy Jones Jr last month.

According to boxing insider's Dan Rafael, the number could have risen beyond 1.2m at the end of the event.
