Let’s get ready to rumble! On June 6, social media star and newly minted boxer Logan Paul will take on Floyd Mayweather and his pristine 50–0 record in Miami. Although it’s an exhibition bout (Paul will outweigh Mayweather by approximately 40 pounds, with an additional 6 inches of height), it will have major implications for a sport that’s struggled in recent years: With his legions of fans and knack for entertaining, Paul might be just what boxing needs to claw its way back to relevance. As for taking on one of the most talented fighters in a generation? Paul’s not letting that put a dent in his confidence.
“I’m going to have a great night,” he tells Men’s Journal. “I was ready for this fight last week.” Here are Logan’s final thoughts before he steps into the ring.
