Mayweather vs Logan Paul predictions: Mike Tyson and boxing world give lowdown as blockbuster June 6 fight confirmed
BOXING LEGEND Floyd Mayweather will fight YouTuber Logan Paul on June 6 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami.
And Mike Tyson is one of several big names from the fight game to predict how it's going to go down.
The exhibition match is set to be screened on Showtime pay-per-view.
Mayweather said in an Instagram post: "Logan Paul and I are going to fight at Hard Rock Stadium. Mayweather Promotions, Fanmio and Showtime will team up to give you an epic event."
The fight was originally scheduled for February 20 but it was postponed due to Covid-19-related restrictions that wouldn’t allow a full stadium, according to Fox News.
The five-time world champion must weigh in under 160 pounds and Paul under 190 pounds, according to the fighting terms. No details were mentioned about how many rounds there will be.
The result of the fight will not count toward Mayweather’s record because it’s an exhibition match. But Tyson still thinks it will be a whitewash with Paul no match for 'Money'.
Iron Mike did not let the fact Logan was sitting across from his stop him from predicting a serious beating for the online personality.
He said: "“Floyd’s gonna beat his f****** a**. But it’s gonna be good. It’s gonna be good, he’s gonna fight back though!”

UFC chief White has no time for YouTubers pretending to be elite athletes.
But he still offered up his opinion when asked about Paul's chances.
And he thinks it will be a 'bad' night for the 26-year-old.
White said: "Listen, I understand these kids want to make some money and they do what they got to do and they say what they got to say to try to get in there and make money.
"This is gonna be such a one-sided, ridiculous a**-whooping, it's not even going to be funny. It's going to be bad.
"If Floyd Mayweather really shows up and goes in and fights this kid, it's going to be an a**-whooping nobody has ever seen before.
"Logan is going to find out what speed is. Speed is power. And when you get hit with s*** that you don't see coming and when a guy like Floyd Mayweather starts putting it on you, it's not even going to be a fight.
"It's going to be ridiculous. It's going to be the worst a**-whooping you have ever seen. Take the size difference and all the other things, it's going to look like what a grown man could do to his kid."
Podcasting guru and former MMA fighter Rogan, 53, failed to predict what will happen in the ring but reckons former wrestler Paul would have a chance in the octagon.
Speaking on the Joe Rogan Experience, he said: "One thing I will tell you – Logan Paul is a really good athlete and he's an enormous man.
"Now if it was an MMA fight, I would pick Logan Paul. Listen to me – there's a video of Logan Paul wrestling with Paulo Costa. It's a real, live wrestling sparring session where he is exhibiting real skill. He knows how to scramble, he's got real wrestling skill.
"I don't care what anybody says – what I saw in that, I'm like that kid is impressive."
Paul's YouTube and former boxing rival KSI was not happy about the fight between Paul and Mayweather.
The Brit beat Paul in his boxing debut and reckons 'Money' should be fighting him instead.
He said on his YouTube channel: "This ain't happening.
"Why the f*** would Mayweather say yes to this? Why would he fight the loser of me and Logan?
"I was A-side for both fights. Surely Mayweather would just want to fight the winner of me vs Logan, it just makes more sense.
"Logan Paul can't sell tickets like me.
"So why would Mayweather want to fight second best when he could just easily fight the best?"

The legendary American is not fazed by criticism of the event and any negative impact it is having in his legacy.
And he said: "This is going to be a great night for the fans worldwide.
"I've never shied away from doing things differently throughout my career and fighting Logan Paul in this special exhibition is just another opportunity for me to do it again."
Paul has been careful to play down his chances but is excited to go head-head-to-head with the middleweight icon.
He said: "I'm always searching for the ultimate challenge and it's a dream to go toe-to-toe with the greatest boxer alive.
"I am ALL IN, the world could witness the greatest upset in the history of sports."
