Floyd Mayweather to face Logan Paul on a SUNDAY to avoid clash with Triller, who have 'no concerns' about exhibition

FLOYD MAYWEATHER and Logan Paul's exhibition could be set for a SUNDAY to avoid a pay-per-view clash with Triller.

Social media platform Triller have June 5 booked in for the lightweight world title fight between champion Teofimo Lopez and mandatory challenger George Kambosos.

Mayweather's spectacle bout against YouTuber Paul was targeted for the same date.

But to stop the two PPV shows from going head to head, it could be shifted by 24 hours, allowing for a rare Sunday of boxing.

And Ryan Kavanaugh, the film producer and brains behind Triller's move into boxing, warned Mayweather will not want to compete with him at the box office.

Kavanaugh told SunSport: "I don't have any doubt if people have to choose who they're going to tune into, they're going to tune into this one.

"That's an exhibition with all types of crazy rules and if I was them I would not want to go up against us.

"I have no concerns of going up against them. But I do believe they are going on Sunday, from everything I've been told."

Mayweather first announced than Fanmio – a site that sells personalised celebrity messages – were promoting his exhibition with Paul.

But now it is believed Showtime, who in 2012 signed the American great to a then-record £150million deal, have stepped in as broadcasters.

Mayweather's long-time yet mysterious advisor Al Haymon is also involved in proceedings.

The 50-0 icon retired professionally in 2017, beating ex-UFC champion Conor McGregor, 32, in ten rounds.

He made a comeback just a year later and wiped out featherweight kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in an exhibition in Tokyo.

With a ring return against Paul, 26, already confirmed, Mayweather, 44, announced plans for further money-spinning extravaganzas.

As well as 50 Cent, he called out Paul's brother Jake, 24, who is 3-0 and twice headlined on a Triller PPV.

Mayweather wants nothing short of a £100m guarantee whenever he steps foot between the ropes.

But Kavanaugh would still be willing to dig deep into his pockets to explore having the multimillionaire boxer on Triller.

He said:"Look, I'm open to anything. I do things based on my own experience.

"If I listened to everybody, then I'd probably never do anything and just stay in bed all day.

"But, I've heard the stories. I haven't had that experience yet, so sure, we'd try and make something work with him if we could.

"Economics, I don't understand yet with him, if what I hear is true, I don't understand how anybody would ever make money.

"But we're very open to it."
