YouTube star Logan Paul shocked the internet after scoring a boxing match with none other than Floyd Mayweather — but just ahead of their fight date, the match was surprisingly postponed, leaving fans confused and disappointed.

The unfortunate news wasn’t so much broken rather than leaked; Paul’s coach, Kelvin Moore, posted an Instagram photo on January 22 where he accidentally let slip that the fight date had been delayed.

After the post was flocked by disappointed fans, it was promptly deleted, leaving the possibility up to speculation until Paul spoke out on the subject a short while later.

In a video with co-host Mike Majlak, Paul dismissed claims that the bout had been postponed due to “lack of interest,” and instead explained that “there are a lot of hoops to jump through” when scheduling a fight with someone of Mayweather’s caliber.

Now, Paul has officially revealed the reason why his internet-breaking bout with one of boxing’s finest stars has been put on the back burner, as told during a February 2 episode of his ‘imPaulsive’ podcast.

During the podcast, Paul admitted that he had been aware of the delay for some time before his Coach’s inadvertent leak, and is completely fine that the fight must be rescheduled for a later date.

Although fans are no doubt chomping at the bit for more information, Logan couldn’t say too much about the situation, but did reveal that “COVID and business complications” were responsible for the delay.

That being said, the YouTuber-turned-pro boxer squashed any rumors of outright cancellation, claiming that his bout with Mayweather is still on in spite of naysayers.

“Fight’s still happening, so easy with the rumors that there was ‘no interest,’” he warned. “I do feel the need to say that this fight broke every single combat sport’s record for pre-sale pay-per-view numbers. Shattered.”

Bad luck for doubters, but good luck for Paul fans — the match is still afoot, although there’s still no solid date as for when these two will face off in the ring.

Bryce Hall apologizes to Dixie D’Amelio & Noah Beck for stripper prank

YouTube star and Sway House member Bryce Hall has officially apologized to Dixie D’Amelio after pranking her boyfriend with strippers — and his way of saying sorry is one for the books.

On February 17, Hall uploaded a YouTube video in which he decided to prank Dixie by blindfolding Noah and hiring two exotic dancers to do their thing around him. During this time, Hall FaceTimed Dixie to show off the proceedings, leading the completely unamused D’Amelio sister to quickly end the call.

Unsurprisingly, many fans felt the prank was “insensitive” and potentially relationship-damaging; but while Dixie and Noah appear to be on good terms despite the practical joke, Hall has since decided to make up for his blunder in a big way.

A few days later, Hall brought Noah back to his home for yet another surprise — but this time, it was a far more positive one. After presenting Noah with a heartfelt letter, Bryce revealed that he’d purchased the TikTok-famous couple a voucher for a beachside hotel in Malibu, California, which they can redeem at any time.

“I got a suite for you guys on the beach in Malibu,” he explained. “It’s really nice. I felt bad for the prank. …and it’s a voucher, so you can go whatever day you want.”

Luckily, it seems that both Dixie and Noah are happy with Bryce’s unexpected gift, with Noah joking that “Bryce does have a heart!” before admitting: “That’s so nice, actually!”

“Thank you Bryce! That’s very kind,” Dixie added, who was let in on the situation — once again — via FaceTime. “I appreciate it!”

It looks like things are all smooth on the homefront with these three in wake of a prank that even had Dixie’s mother slamming Bryce Hall for being “disrespectful” to her daughter.

Noah himself had even called for Hall to apologize beforehand, stating during paparazzi video: “He shouldn’t be apologizing to me. He should be apologizing to Dixie.”

While Bryce is known for his “party animal” lifestyle, it’s nice to see the TikTok star showing his soft side — especially when it brings together some of his best friends.
