The wait to see a Paul brother humbled will have to wait a little longer, with Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul's boxing match, scheduled for February 20, postponed.

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. However, due to the inability of venues to have crowds at this time, the fight has been delayed until crowds can return.  

Here are the early fight details and Mayweather vs. Paul odds, prior to the postponement:

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 was a massive favorite at the books. 

Opening odds had Mayweather installed at -5,000 with Paul coming back at +1,500, but those odds later changed to Mayweather at -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 at the hands of Paul, whenever they do fight. 

Though it's unlikely they'll matter, the rules for this exhibition fight are yet to be announced.

A Paul win would pay out much more as he's the underdog at +750. This means that a $100 wager would profit $750.
