Almost a year ago, YouTuber turned boxer Logan Paul challenged legendary fighter Floyd Mayweather to an exhibition bout. The fight that saw Mayweather come out of retirement and back into the ring sold over one million pay-per-views, and resulted in great disappointment going all eight rounds and without a clear knockout win. Although the exact details of how much Paul made have not been disclosed, his brother Jake Paul, told the media back in February that Mayweather still owes his brother somewhere between $5 and $10 million USD.
TMZ recently caught up with Logan outside the Hard Rock Hotel in New York and asked if Mayweather has paid him yet. Logan responded to the outlet,
“No, he has not paid me in full. That is a fact. Short a few mil.”
When asked if there was a chance that the two fighters could settle this without a legal battle, Logan simply answered that it is too late and that he plans to see Mayweather in court, “We’re taking this one to court. See you in the courtroom. Congrats on going to prison, Floyd.” This February, Logan sued Floyd Mayweather for his failure to pay him despite the agreement. While Mayweather has yet to respond to the most recent allegations, he once boasted about making $This comes with the territory million USD from the “fake fight”, “Am I the best bank robber? Because I don’t know nobody in sports that’s my age and can still stick ‘em up like that.”
When Jake Paul spoke about how his brother has not yet been paid by Mayweather in February, Mayweather cautioned them to be patient, “This comes with the territory. To them, that’s real money, and I like the YouTubers. The money on the back end though, from pay-per-view, takes a while. Nothing comes right away. I’m still collecting checks from fights seven or eight years ago. They just hate when the table is turned. Be happy with the biggest payday you ever got in your life.”
