Early Odds of Logan Paul v Floyd Mayweather Fight in February 2021

It looks like retired professional boxing champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. and YouTube star Logan Paul will actually meet in the boxing ring. Not long after the news hit the worldwide web on Sunday, the oddsmakers began laying early predictions.

If things hold true to odds, then Paul will not only lose, but he would be the first to bleed and also get knocked down to the canvas.

Here are the early odds released by betonline.ag:

Fight winner
Floyd Mayweather -5000 (1/50)
Logan Paul +1500 (15/1)

First fighter to bleed
Floyd Mayweather +300 (3/1)
Logan Paul -500 (1/5)

Will Logan Paul be knocked down?
Yes -180 (5/9)
No +140 (7/5)

Will the fight go the distance? (Match must be scheduled for at least 8 rounds.)
Yes -200 (1/2)
No +150 (3/2)

It appeared the fight would be done before the end of this year, but it never became official. Mayweather stated Sunday on Instagram that the two will fight an exhibition match in early 2021. So, there's no indication of how many rounds the fight will last since it's an exhibition.

Mayweather posted a photo of him and Paul, with this text: "Super Exhibition Feb. 20, 2021 !!!!

"Early Bird Special On Sale NOW!!!! @fanmio ... More Details Soon. Link in BIO."

Mayweather, 43, retired from his professional career undefeated in 50 fights, with 27 knockouts in his 50 wins across five weight classes. He won 15 major world championships in his career.

Paul, 25, has more than 22.5 million subscribers on his YouTube channel.

Paul isn't new to the ring. He fought British YouTube star Olajide Olatunji—also known as KSI. Paul lost that 2018 fight that was streamed on YouTube, and he also lost the rematch in November 2019.

Before Mayweather was a professional, he was a bronze medalist at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta.

Mike Feinberg of the Fighting News channel on YouTube said earlier this fall that a contract had already been signed between Mayweather and Paul.

"I've got some breaking news for you. Floyd Mayweather Jr. is coming out of retirement and has just officially signed a contract to fight in an exhibition match against Logan Paul—YouTube sensation Logan Paul," Feinberg said.

"I don't understand the fight. Logan Paul has tried his hand at professional boxing—couldn't the other nobody [that] nobody's ever heard of before. [Paul's] now zero and one. He's going to be fighting one of the best in Floyd Mayweather. It's going to be a joke of a fight, but it's signed. It's official. I heard it from a reputable source today and even saw the signed picture of the signed contract where Floyd signed on the dotted line for this exhibition match."

Feinberg also said, "It's going to be a walk in the park for Floyd. It's going to be very simple. But apparently there's some kind of money in it because it's going to be on YouTube and Logan Paul's got a lot of followers."
