In a fourth PPV fight, former NFL star Chad Johnson will make his boxing debut against an opponent who has yet to be signed.  After years of off-season training at Mayweather in Las Vegas, the man they also call Chad Ochocinco will test his boxing skills and bring his unique brand of fan-friendly entertainment to the star-studded event.

The pay-per-view broadcast begins live on Sunday, June 6th at 8:00 p.m. ET / 5:00 p.m. PT.  Tickets for the live event at Hard Rock Stadium will go on sale next week with additional details on tickets and pay-per-TV TV broadcast to be announced shortly.

Floyd Mayweather, who was elected to the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 2020, set a unique record with a record of 50-0-0.  During his illustrious career, which spanned three decades, he collected 12 world titles in five different weight classes.  His brilliant boxing resume includes 24 wins against world champions including Manny Pacquiao, Oscar De La Hoya and Canelo Alvarez.

During his career, he has been named the Highest Paid Athlete in the World by Forbes, Fortune and Sports Illustrated several times.  Mayweather has received numerous Fighter of the Year awards, including five ESPY awards and two awards from the Boxing Writers Association of America.  His 2015 showdown with Pacquiao broke the previous pay-per-view TV record with 4.6 million purchases, a record that still stands.  Mayweather last fought in a boxing show on New Year's Eve 2018 in Japan.

While Mayweather dominated boxing on its way to a perfect professional record and international fame, Paul became famous on the internet.  Paul, 26, has greeted the world on various social media platforms such as YouTube, where he has amassed more than 20 million subscribers.  His legions of enthusiastic fans supported him when he entered professional boxing in 2019 and sold out the Staples Center in Los Angeles on his six-round debut against his YouTube star KSI.  The internet star, who was born in Ohio, USA, is a former high school wrestling star who has been training for over two years.  Now he's preparing for the undefeated boxing legend "Money Mayweather".  Paul, who is over six inches taller than Mayweather and has an age advantage of 18, will challenge the best boxer of his generation in his Miami arena.
