More from Variety
The pay-per-view event, which, if nothing else, is sure to be an entertaining spectacle, will be available to stream live for $49.99 at 8 p.m. ET on Showtime and Fanmio.com. The event is produced by Showtime PPV alongside Mayweather Productions. If you don’t have cable, you can access Showtime on Sling TV or Apple TV.
Despite what will certainly not be a close fight, Mayweather’s star power and Paul’s impenetrable gravitation towards internet virality will be sure to pull in an impressive amount of viewers. 44 year-old Mayweather’s last pro fight was against UFC boxer Conor McGregor in 2017, which was the second most-viewed PPV event in history. Needless to say, Paul doesn’t have as much experience in the ring. The 26 year-old Youtuber-turned-actor (he appears in last year’s “Valley Girl”), has only fought on-camera once in 2019, during which he was defeated by British Youtuber KSI at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Mayweather and Paul’s eight-round fight will be the main event during the four-fight event, which also sees former NFL wide receiver Chad Johnson making his boxing debut against fighter Brian Maxwell. You can purchase the livestream of the entire event for $49.99 from Fanmio or Showtime via your streaming service provider, such as Amazon Prime and Hulu.
