Logan Paul has ripped into Floyd Mayweather for claiming that the YouTube star was paid for their exhibition bout in June of last year.
Logan Paul rips into Floyd Mayweather
Paul and Mayweather have often fought over money. In the aftermath of the (PPV) exhibition bout back in June of 2021, he claims that the prize money has not been paid in full. In response to this assertion, he dubbed the boxing legend a ‘rat’ and confirmed his intention to seek legal recourse in order to recover his earnings.
The fight resulted in over one million PPV buys. Paul has been adamant that he hasn’t been paid for his part in the event, a claim that Mayweather has disputed.
Speaking on Andrew Schulz’s Flagrant show recently, Paul absolutely ripped into Mayweather for claiming that he was paid for the fight. Paul took aim at the undefeated boxing legend’s intelligence, while simultaneously taking shots at Dillon Danis and Conor McGregor.
“Floyd Mayweather, you punch drunk idiot, read my lips,” Paul said. “Oh wait, you can’t. Where is my money, b****? Floyd hasn’t paid me for our fight.
“Who am I, the IRS [Internal Revenue Service]? You can’t dodge taxes like you do punches, dummy. How can you call yourself the greatest of all time when you couldn’t even finish me? What am I, high school? Your punches are softer than the pillow Conor McGregor makes Dillon Danis bite.”
Paul has made quite the name for himself in the world of boxing. He has generated some of the biggest boxing events in recent years with his fight against Mayweather, as well as his fight with fellow YouTube star KSI back in 2018.
That fight actually drew in 300,000 more buys than his fight with Mayweather. Logan Paul’s brother on the other hand, Jake, has been taking professional boxing fights, rather than exhibitions.
He holds an undefeated record of 5-0 with wins over former MMA champions such as Tyron Woodley and Ben Askren.
