Logan Paul is a YouTuber who is the founder of the YouTube channel “Logan Paul Impaulsive”. He has also appeared in a few shows, but the one for which his popularity is at stake is the Mayweather-Pacquiao boxing match at Madison Square Garden in New York City. The fight drew more than 100,000 fans and the fight itself was a huge success. Paul released numerous videos on his channel in which he has discussed the match, the fight, and the aftermath of the fight. Paul has increasingly been known for his controversial views and has been criticized for being a bigoted person and for using racist remarks.
Now, the YouTuber turned Professional fighter Logan Paul has once again claimed on Floyd Mayweather for not paying him his unsanctioned exhibition fight money. The story can be traced back to June 2021 when both of them were engaged in an Unsanctioned exhibition bout, which resulted in neither a knockdown nor a knockout.
The Fight between Paul and Floyd Mayweather was a huge success with reports suggesting they made $50 million from a million pay-per-view buys. You, Tuber Paul, were guaranteed $250,000 plus 10 percent of the pay per view money which, comes out at $5million. Undefeated Mayweather is said to have been guaranteed $10m plus 50 percent of the pay-per-view sales which equates to $25m.
Last week he took to Twitter to explain his intentions about Floyd Mayweather not paying him his money. Paul responded to a headline that was made regarding this controversy, stating that “Yeah because the dirty little rat hasn’t paid me yet lol,”. “It’s been 6 months”.
And according to some sources, Paul is going to sue Floyd Mayweather for not paying him his exhibition money. Paul is planning on filing a lawsuit against Mayweather, claiming that he still hasn’t been paid for last summer’s fight, which sold over one million pay-per-view buys.
And according to Paul, the fight was an important moment for him, as it was his first fight in almost four years. It was a great way to start a new chapter for him, a new chapter that has led to a new weight for him. It made him realize that he has to put in more work to get paid for the fight. So, that makes him get his payback.
Paul’s brother Jake Paul also spoke on behalf of his brother during a recent London press conference during the controversy He stated that his brother really hasn’t been paid as he told the media. “There’s a lawsuit that was opened up last week or two weeks ago. They’re pressuring him both legally and behind-the-scenes, but it’s embarrassing for Floyd Mayweather to not have enough money to pay my brother.”
The fight was the second exhibition that Mayweather has taken part in since he retired from boxing in 2017. He fought Tenshin Nasukawa in 2018 before stepping back from fighting.
He was heavily criticized by some in the boxing community for fighting Paul who has never won a fight. But he defended his decision, telling “I can fight every single fighter in the world right now and I can guarantee myself $35million”. He also stated that he can eventually probably make $50million, for just a regular fight. And Logan Paul can go out, entertain, have fun and make nine figures $100million or more. Meanwhile, the controversy between both of them is still going on, thereby accusing some of the other in the Exhibition pay scale drama.
