(Professional) boxer Floyd Mayweather has reportedly been approached by internet personality and (amateur) boxer Logan Paul's team about throwing down in the ring sometime later this year.

Details are murky, however, and TMZ claims that no one has signed a contract yet. In a paparazzi clip, Paul was adamant that he "can't say s**t right now," but responded with a thumbs up when asked whether his hands are "up-to-date."

The 25-year-old has been eager to fight ever since losing in a split-decision rematch against KSI back in November 2019. Previously, the two finished with a majority draw in KSI's native England in summer 2018.

Meanwhile, Mayweather's last high-profile bout came against Conor McGregor in August 2017, ending with an easy 10th-round knockout. 

He also participated in an exhibition versus Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa for New Year's Eve 2018, swiftly demolishing him at 41 years old in a little over two minutes.

Another pro athlete who Paul was interested in boxing was wide receiver Antonio Brown, though that possibility fell through largely due to Brown's unpredictable antics.

Paul's little brother Jake is preparing for his second-career fight involving former NBA player Nate Robinson, appearing as the undercard of the Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. match taking place on November 28 just outside of Los Angeles.

Spatting at one another via FaceTime, Jake told Robinson this fight is "the only thing you have going for you" given his retirement and referred to him belittingly as "baby Nate."
