Pay-Per-View History


Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Tenshin Nasukawa was announced on November 5, 2018. Even though a ruleset and weight class weren't announced, Mayweather called the match a "Special Bout". Mayweather vs. Nasukawa was shades of the 1976 exhibition match between World Heavyweight Champion Muhammad Ali and Japanese professional wrestler Antonio Inoki, which was fought under special rules.

On November 7, 2018, Mayweather called the fight off claiming he never agreed to an official match. Mayweather said that he had agreed to an exhibition match, which was to be put on for a small group of wealthy spectators. This exhibition match was previously arranged as a “Special Bout” purely for entertainment purposes with no intentions of being represented on an official fight card nor televised worldwide. The fight was later re-arranged as a three-round boxing exhibition match to be contested at the welterweight limit of 147 lbs.

On December 31, 2018, Mayweather faced Nasukawa at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan in the main event of RIZIN.14. Mayweather weighed 147 lbs, while Nasukawa weighed 137 lbs.

Bragging Rights
Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Logan Paul was announced on December 6, 2020. A location or weight class weren't announced, but Mayweather's representatives confirmed the validity of the exhibition match against social media giant and novice boxer Logan Paul (0-1).

Originally scheduled on February 20, 2021, the match was postponed and rescheduled for June 6, 2021 on Showtime PPV. The fight was arranged as an eight-round special exhibition to be contested at a maximum weight of 190 lbs. for Paul and 160 lbs. for Mayweather. The Florida State Boxing Commission didn't sanction the exhibition and didn't assign any judges for the match due to the weight and experience disparities between the combatants.

On June 6, 2021, Mayweather faced Paul at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida in the main event of a four-fight card on Showtime PPV. Mayweather weighed 155 lbs, while Paul weighed 189.5 lbs. Mayweather walked Paul down for the majority of the fight but was unable to hurt the bigger, but inexperienced opponent as Paul often held and leaned on Mayweather throughout the match.
