Mayweather is eyeing up the home of the NFL team Las Vegas Raiders to host the fight

As reported by The Sun, the 43-year-old, said: ‘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.

‘We’re trying to do it at the Raider’s stadium in Vegas for 80,000 people. 

The Allegiant Stadium is the home of NFL giants Las Vegas Raiders, which opened up last year after just under three years of construction.

It came on the back of the decision to relocate the formerly known Oakland Raiders team to Las Vegas.

The stadium is being touted as a new venue for boxing events and can hold up to 80,000 fans, opposed to 65,000 in NFL games.    

Mayweather who retired in 2017 with a perfect 50-0 record, held the last 15 professional fights of his career in Nevada.

Mayweather last fought in an exhibition bout with kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in Japan

His last fight came in a victory over UFC superstar Conor McGregor, though he did have an exhibition bout with featherweight kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa last year, in which he won inside the first round.

American vlogger Paul has boxed only twice in his lifetime, both against Youtube rival KSI.

The first time they drew in a white collar bout in Manchester, before turning pro for their rematch in Los Angeles in 2019, which saw KSI win by split decision after ten rounds.
