Boxing superstar Floyd “Money” Mayweather revealed some never before heard details about his upcoming bout with Logan Paul.

Some of the biggest news concerning the eldest Paul brother as of late is his upcoming match against the undefeated Floyd Mayweather, but due to ongoing global events, the exact details surrounding the matchup are still pretty much unknown after being postponed.

That is, until Mayweather hosted a Clubhouse meet-up where he leaked to listeners during the call where they want to hold the bout, when it would happen, and more.

Logan and Floyd were supposed to be fighting on Feb 20th, but that date has been postponed.

After one listener asked about the Logan Paul fight, Mayweather was not shy with the details, including plans to try and fill the brand new Las Vegas Raiders stadium to the brim with fans for the showdown.

“We’re gonna do Logan Paul, and we pushed it back because we want an audience, we want to bring 80,000 people to watch,” Mayweather explained about the Feb. 20 date’s delay. “We’re trying to do it at the Raider’s stadium in Vegas for 80,000 people.”

Pulling in a crowd like that would be a tall order the way current events are going, so it’s probably safe to say that the fight will be postponed until much later, once things start to improve and life begins to return to normal.

Obviously, fans will want a solid, actual date for the fight set in stone sooner rather than later, but Floyd’s recent revelation has made it clear that the wait is set to continue with no end in sight anytime soon.

Whenever it happens it’s sure to be a hot-ticket item, but based on what we’ve heard about the delay from others including Paul’s friend Mike Maljak, who joked that it wouldn’t be happening until “2026”, means we probably shouldn’t be holding our collective breaths.

Why is #FreeTommy trending? Tommyinnit responds after shock TikTok ban

Popular Minecraft YouTuber Tommyinnit has become a major trend across social media again as the internet celebrity had his TikTok account banned out of nowhere.

Tommyinnit has been one of the fastest-growing stars on the internet of late. From remarkable Twitch viewership to staggering income, his growth across a number of social platforms has been something to behold. Though there was one major setback in his way for a short period.

The popular personality was suddenly removed from TikTok on February 24. Seemingly without reason, the platform banned Tommyinnit’s account which had just climbed to over four million followers.

“TikTok just banned me,” he revealed on Twitter.

“Crushed. I am absolutely crushed. Please TikTok,” he added with a hashtag that went on to trend in a matter of minutes. “#FreeTommy.”

Having trended on Twitter just days prior, this latest viral moment comes as a result of the bad news. Thousands of loyal fans immediately jumped on the trend, spamming #FreeTommy across social media to get it trending.

There’s no denying the enormous community support had an impact as Tommy’s account was restored in under an hour.

Hundreds of tweets and thousands of impressions later, his TikTok account was back to normal. All of his videos were brought back to the platform and the creator was free to engage with fans once again.

There’s currently no telling why the sudden ban came through in the first place, however. The 16-year-old has just 18 videos on TikTok at the time of writing, most of which are simple close-ups on his face.

#FreeTommy shot to the number one trend worldwide in a matter of minutes.

While the controversy was short-lived, it goes to show that even the biggest social media stars can have their profiles erased in the blink of an eye. 

TikTok is yet to explain the reason behind this shock ban, though we’ll be sure to keep you updated if any further information comes to light.
