The internet was set alight when rumors swirled around Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul potentially boxing, but will it happen? Well, here’s what we know so far. 

Content creators and influencers getting into the boxing ring and fighting is nothing new. It all kicked off with KSI and Joe Weller back in early 2018 and it has been taken to incredible levels since with two fights between KSI and Logan Paul.

Though, it’s not all about settling YouTube beefs either. Some influencers, mainly the Paul brothers, have called out actual fighters and other athletes.

Logan has stated in the past that he’s interested in the UFC and even fighting Conor McGregor but he appears to have his eyes on someone else – Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather. Here’s what we know.

Will Logan Paul vs Floyd Mayweather happen?

On September 16, rumors started swirling that the Paul brother and Mayweather had been in talks regarding a possible fight. 

Some teases were dropped on social media before former NFL punter turned sports analyst Pat McAfee noted that a report stated that the pair had actually signed a contract agreeing to a fight at some point in the future. 

When is Logan Paul vs Floyd Mayweather?

As for when the pair could actually fight, that is unknown. Back on September 2nd, Paul confirmed that he aimed to box again before the end of 2020.

His brother, Jake, is set to fight former NBA first-round pick Nate Robinson on the undercard of the Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr exhibition. Though, the date for that has been moved around from September 12 to November 28. 

Logan vs Floyd would undoubtedly command the spotlight so you won’t find it nestled on the undercard of some other bout in the future.

The possibility of the fight happening has already been mocked by a number of influencers, including KSI. Though, as some details remain shrouded in mystery, significant interest will undoubtedly grow. 

We’ll keep this post updated with any updates – be it confirmed news or rumors – as when they come to the surface. So, be sure to keep on checking back in with Dexerto.

6th Tony Lopez accuser comes forward amid his return to TikTok

A new accusation concerning Tony Lopez’s behaviour with minors has now gone viral, with TikTok user Noah claiming a 15-year-old girl has given him permission to share her account.

With accusations about Lopez building momentum across social media, the former Hype House star has continued to try and carry on with life as normal.

He recently returned to TikTok, creating dance videos and sharing day-to-day snapshots of his life, but it seems like his former fans are unwilling to let him forget accusations that easily.

TikToker Angry Reactions recently accused Lopez of deleting a comment he made regarding the accusations in one of his videos, while fellow Hype House member Larray referenced the claims in his highly-controversial diss track, ‘Canceled.’

Larray recently became embroiled in the situation after mentioning Lopez in his new track ‘Canceled’.

This led to Lopez hitting out at content creators for “using this situation for likes,” with TikTok Room later reporting that Tony Lopez liked a comment by a user criticising fans for “not letting [the situation] go.”

However, TikTok user Noah – who recently hit out at Larray ‘lying’ about contacting Tony Lopez’s accusers – has now uploaded a TikTok which he claims is part of his aim to help “victims that were groomed by Tony Lopez get their story out.” The full video was shared by drama account TikTok Insider.

Identifying the girl only as Valencia, Noah says that at the time of the incident with Lopez, she was only fifteen. He also points out that she had made a video about the claims before, but was accused of lying.

He explains that after her friend sent a message to Lopez as a joke, he responded and they started a conversation, with him quickly inviting her over to the Hype House that same night.

Implicating fellow TikToker Tayler Holder into the accusations, Noah claims that he was the one who answered the door and let Valencia into the house.

It is alleged that Tayler Holder answered the door to the minor when Lopez invited her to the Hype House.

“I can’t go into detail about what happened or this video will be taken down, but things did happen,” Noah said.

Noah also pointed out that he sent Valencia messages about wanting to have a threesome, which he argues is consistent with the way he spoke to the other accusers.

Noah also showed evidence of alleged messages Lopez sent the minor.

He also notes that the Snapchat account that sent the message is visually consistent with Lopez’s private Snapchat account that he has allegedly contacted other minors on.

Neither Lopez nor Holder has spoken out publicly about these claims. There is also information to suggest that Lopez will be prosecuted based on this latest allegation.
