Mayweather last stepped through the ropes of the boxing ring in late 2018, when he knocked out Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in a similarly polarizing exhibition fight. His next most recent appearance was a legitimate pro fight against UFC star Conor McGregor, which he won by 10th-round stoppage. That win brought his record to 50-0.
Paul, on the other hand, is 0-1 as a professional boxer, having lost his lone pro bout to fellow YouTuber KSI. Prior to that pro loss, he fought KSI to a controversial draw in an amateur bout.
