Boxing odds are now live at some books for the upcoming exhibition fight between former multiple belt-holder Floyd Mayweather and YouTube star Logan Paul.
The fight was announced on the heels of last November's Mike Tyson-Roy Jones Jr. card, in which Paul's brother Jake infamously potato-sacked former NBA player Nate Robinson.
Here are the early fight details and Mayweather vs. Paul odds:
Who is the Favorite to Win Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul?
As you might expect for a fight between one of the greatest boxers ever and a YouTube personality, Mayweather is a massive favorite at the books.
Opening odds had Mayweather installed at -5,000 with Paul coming back at +1,500, but in the month since the fight's announcement have fallen to Mayweather -2,000, and Paul at +750.
While Paul has six inches in height and four inches of reach on Mayweather, he'll be conceding huge edges in speed, cardio, and overall boxing technique.
Mayweather is undefeated in 50 professional boxing tilts. Despite his retirement, it's incredibly difficult to envision his first "loss" coming here.
Though it's unlikely they'll matter, the rules for this exhibition fight are yet to be announced.
