The fight is back on.

Five-time world champion Floyd Mayweather has nailed down a date for his hotly anticipated exhibition boxing match with YouTube sensation Logan Paul.

In December, Paul announced he’d be fighting Mayweather on the heels of his brother Jake Paul knocking out former NBA player Nate Robinson.

On Wednesday, the two contenders confirmed the upcoming bout, set for June 6 at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, on their respective social media accounts.

Mayweather – who boasts a 50-0 record and 27 knock outs – touted the upcoming match on social media by calling it “an epic event.”

Meanwhile, Paul, 26, also shared the official promo trailer for the showdown on Twitter.

The event will mark a return to the ring for the Mayweather.

In 2017, the beloved boxer, now 44, retired from the sport following his 10th round TKO against MMA fighter Conor McGregor.

Paul, who previously squared off against YouTuber KSI in 2019, has a record that stands at 0-1 with no knockouts. He lost the bout via split decision.

Boxing is in his bloodline though; the recent “Masked Singer” castoff’s younger brother, Jake Paul, has fared much better in the ring and currently boasts an undefeated score of 3-0.

The 24-year-old social media superstar’s most recent match ended with a first-round knockout against former UFC champ Ben Askren.
