Jake Paul and Floyd Mayweather caused an uproar with that whole “GOTCHA HAT” controversy, but Money is actually fighting Jake’s brother Logan Paul. That June 6th fight has plenty of attention already and celebrities want in on the action.
Stephen Espinoza, president of Showtime Sports, told Insider that he has never received so much interest from celebrities for a fight before. They typically receive requests, but Paul vs Mayweather is something special. This is certainly a sign that they have a hot ticket fight on their hands.
“The number of celebrities that reached out and asked for tickets is always an indication of a hot fight.”
“I’ve never experienced so many celebrities reaching out so far in advance.”
“Usually you get a celebrity ticket request from athletes or Hollywood types on fight week, when everyone’s talking about it and you get the urge to go. But celebrities don’t tend to ask for tickets three or four weeks out, and I got many of those requests.”
We’ll have to see who gets ringside seats for the Logan Paul and Floyd Mayweather fight on June 6th. We will have full coverage right here at Thirsty. Odds are some celebs might get turned away, because some high profile names seem to be interested in seeing this fight go down live.
We do know that Jake Paul will be at the fight. They unbanned him from the event a couple of weeks following that whole GOTCHA HAT stunt.
