Logan Paul’s trainer deletes Instagram post as Mayweather fight is ‘rescheduled’

Logan Paul's trainer swiftly deleted an Instagram post which suggested that the fight against Floyd Mayweather was in doubt.

Kelvin Moore claimed that the fight would not be taking place on the originally-scheduled date of February 20.

Instead, the fight is expected to be rescheduled – though reasoning behind the fight date change are yet to be confirmed.

Paul is facing Mayweather in an exhibition boxing fight after months of bad blood and insults exchanged between the pair.

YouTube sensation Paul has been dabbling in boxing in recent years, facing off against KSI in his most high-profile clash.

But taking on Mayweather, one of the greatest fighters of all-time, is a different kettle of fish.

Coach Moore wrote on Instagram: "What an honour to be out in LA to work with Logan and Jake Paul and meet Victor Ortz and the super legend @zabjudah at the training camp prep for the Paul vs Mayweather bout coming up.

"The dates been changed but their (sic) bringing me back out when camp restarts for conditioning work on a whole different dimension.

"Appreciative and honored and those that know I'll have you in the best shape of your life… period @loganpaul."

The official website is still selling tickets for the Paul and Mayweather fight on the originally-scheduled date of February 20.

Virtual ticket prices are currently at £44.

Event broadcasters and promoters Fanmio have been contacted for comment.

When the bout does go ahead, both Mayweather and Paul are set to earn huge amounts of money due to the large PPV interest in the unlikely match up.

Paul said on his official YouTube channel earlier in the month: "Everyone wants to know about the money for this fight.

“Everyone wants to know what got Floyd to take this fight, was it the money?

"I'll say this, you're way off with your estimates, and you'll never know.

"I'd probably would have done this fight for free. It's an iconic opportunity, this is some legacy s***.

"I’d have done this for free. This is the coolest thing in the world. I get to grace the ring with one of the best boxers of all time and attempt to take his head off.

"But I didn't take it for free, I'm going to make a good amount."

Co-host Mike Majlak then hinted that Paul will earn at least $10m (£7.3m) overall, which is 5,000 per cent more than the initial estimate, which was £147,000 plus 5 per cent of PPV sales.

Majlak said: "Eight figures – you're not going to say it, but eight figures."
