4/27 4:59 PM PT -- 4/27 -- We told you ... and now it's official -- Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul will face off in the ring on June 6 in Miami ... with the huge boxing match set to go down at Hard Rock Stadium.
The news was set in stone Tuesday afternoon ... with the YouTube superstar sharing the fight promotion on Instagram just moments ago.
"June 6 I break the simulation," Paul said. "@mayweatherpromotions @fanmio and @showtimeboxing have come together to make boxing history!!!"
We're told the date is not set in stone -- but Floyd's camp is really pushing for the Sunday date.
So, why not shoot for Saturday night like most major Pay-Per-View boxing events?
We're told the hope of having a bunch of live fans at the venue for the fight is playing a key role.
One source tells us the Sunday date works better with the intended venue in Miami -- a venue that would be able to hold a large crowd, which is very important to Floyd.
Floyd and Logan Paul were originally scheduled to fight on February 20th -- but the event was postponed due to "COVID and other things."
Since then, there have been questions about if the fight was ever going to happen -- but we're told Floyd is 100% in and can't wait to get it on.
The fight would technically be considered an exhibition -- which means it would not count on either fighters' professional record.
Plus, the Paul brothers have proven to be legitimate PPV draws -- which we're certain is appealing to Floyd.
And we all remember what he did to Conor McGregor ...
