LOGAN PAUL has revealed his fight against Floyd Mayweather has been postponed because of ‘the business side of things’.

The unlikely opponents were set to fight in a ‘special exhibition fight’ promoted by Fanmio next month.

But the February 20 date for the fight has been scrapped as talks over the pursue and location rumble on.

Paul, who has fought just once as a professional, insisted he will keep training as the fight is still ON.

He taunted Mayweather as he claimed the veteran is ‘getting older everyday’ while he keeps improving.

Speaking on his YouTube channel, he said: “The Mayweather fight is pushed [back] which I am completely OK with.

“The fight’s still happening [but] we want to have a packed arena somewhere and then the business side of things, we have to iron them out.

“He’s got a lot of people on his team, [his advisor] Al Haymon got involved, if you know boxing, you know what that means for getting an actual deal done and figuring out a venue.

“I need as much practice, training, sparring under my belt against this guy.

How Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul compare ahead of their fight

“With every day that goes past I get better and he gets older.”

Mayweather, 43, officially retired in 2017 after he beat former UFC champion Conor McGregor.

He returned one year later when he wiped out featherweight kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in an exhibition bout.

The unbeaten fighter will fancy his chances against Paul despite the YouTuber’s THREE STONE weight advantage.

Mayweather has also been challenged to a rematch by old rival Manny Pacquaio.

Money got the better of Pacman in their 2015 bout, which was dubbed the ‘The Fight of the Century’.
