The exhibition boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and YouTube star Logan Paul has been put on the backburner.

The fight, which was scheduled for Feb. 20, has been postponed, according to Fanmio founder and CEO Solomon Engel, who shared a statement with ESPN.

“After an absolutely tremendous response to the fight announcement, we’re hoping to announce a new date very soon along with some new exciting details,” Engel said.

Online platform Fanmio was set to host the event, which would be streamed on pay-per-view. No reason for the postponement was made available.
