Logan Paul wants what he believes he’s owed from Floyd Mayweather.
Back in June 2021, Paul and Mayweather collided in an exhibition boxing match. The action emanated from Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida.
The popular YouTuber and the all-time boxing great went all eight rounds and no winner was declared. While the two exchanged pleasantries after the fight, things have soured over the past few months. It’s gotten to the point where Paul plans to sue Mayweather.
Logan Paul Demands Money Owed
Logan Paul had a chat with Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour and he discussed what went awry after the PPV fight against Floyd Mayweather.
“You tell me, man. I’ve not been paid in full, that is a fact. There also have been alleged under the table cash deals that I was excluded from even though my name and likeness was used to sell our fight. He’s in multiple lawsuits for this fight already.
“To him, he used the verbiage, ‘legalized bank robbery,’ when describing this fight but as it turns out it wasn’t so legal [laughs]. We’re just trying to collect what’s rightfully ours.
“It sucks and he came out recently and said something like, ‘This is the name of the game. This is how it works in boxing,’ but I don’t know if it is. I don’t know if that’s true. I think after you fight you should probably get paid. I don’t think it takes this long to count the money.”
Estimated PPV Buys
When Helwani asked what the estimated PPV buyrate was, Paul said the following:
“I think it was 1.2 million buys. Yeah, I couldn’t believe it either. I don’t know. Everyone was floating around numbers beforehand. I thought it would be a little bit higher, to be honest with you. Maybe I’m just being f*cking greedy. I’m happy with it, I’m happy.”
Paul also confirmed that he’s been getting his workouts in for the first time in months in preparation for a potential boxing match. While he doesn’t have anything lined up, Paul hopes to keep himself in shape should a unique opportunity arise.
