Floyd Mayweather STILL owes Logan Paul money for fight purse seven months after bout, claims YouTuber’s podcast co-host

LOGAN PAUL has still not been fully paid for his boxing exhibition with Floyd Mayweather, his podcast host claimed.

The YouTuber and boxing legend in June boxed over eight rounds in Miami, with the spectacle bout ending without a winner.

Mayweather boasted before and afterwards about earning $100million (£72million) for the exhibition – which he dubbed a ‘legalised bank robbery’.

But Paul has since alleged on social media that he is owed money by the retired boxer, nicknamed ‘Money’.

Responding to an article about Mayweather’s wealth, Paul tweeted: “Yeah because the dirty little rat hasn’t paid me yet lol. It’s been 6 months.

“But no worries @Floydmayweather,  @KSI and I are going to make back the money you stole from me & more. January 4.”

Paul, 26, later went on to announce, along with former boxing opponent KSI, 28, they have launched a beverage brand called ‘Prime Hydration’.

But his accusations towards Mayweather – who is yet to respond – have gained traction and his Impaulsive podcast co-host Mike Majlak was quizzed on the subject.

Asked on The Daily Stardust if Paul had been paid by Mayweather, Majlak responded: “I think he paid some of it. But I don’t think he paid all of it.

“He still owes him some. They are working on it right now.”

The exhibition bout reportedly sold over 1million pay-per-view buys at $49.99, meaning over $50m was generated in box office sales alone. 

Mayweather, 44, officially retired in 2017 after beating UFC superstar Conor McGregor, 33, in a lucrative crossover bout.

But he has returned twice, both in exhibitions, starting with a one round demolition job over featherweight kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa, 23.

He then returned to face social media star Paul who weighed TWO STONE more, and avoided a knockout loss.

Mayweather is now in talks to fight 19-year-old Dubai-based YouTuber ‘Money Kicks’ in the Middle East on February 20.

Meanwhile Paul, who drew to KSI in 2018 but lost the rematch a year later, is yet to return to the ring.
