LOGAN PAUL says he is ready to take Floyd Mayweather Jr to court after claiming he hasn’t been paid in full for their 2021 fight.
The YouTuber and boxer, 27, went eight rounds with the pound-for-pound king in an entertaining exhibition bout last June.
Paul and Mayweather battled it out in an exhibition bout in Florida
But Paul claims that he has not been paid in full for the one-off fight night
Paul claims that he has not received all the money owed to him for the Florida showdown – and will sue Mayweather for the full amount.
Billed as ‘Bragging Rights’, the match-up saw five-division champion Mayweather take on the social media star.
Raking in more than one million pay-per-view buys, ‘Money’ Mayweather claimed he had earned $100million for the one-off event.
But in February, Logan’s brother Jake estimated that his sibling was owed between a further $5-$10m.

Speaking to TMZ on May 15, Logan said: “No, he has not paid me in full. That is a fact. Short a few mil.
“I’m not f***ing with you. We’re taking this one to court. See you in the courtroom.
“Congrats on going to prison, Floyd.”
Mayweather is yet to respond to the allegation but did comment when Logan and brother Jake questioned where the money was back in February.
Now the owner of a NASCAR team, Mayweather cautioned the YouTubers to be patient and claimed he was still collecting cheques for fights ‘seven or eight years ago’.
He said: “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.”
Floyd was due to fight an exhibition bout against Don Moore in the UAE on May 14.
But the fight was postponed due to the sudden death United Arab Emirates president Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
Away from the ring, it’s been business as usual in recent weeks for Logan and Jake, who are both eyeing up fights in the near future.
The pair were both recently forced to eat cow’s testicles in a nauseating online challenge set by influencer the ‘Liver King’.
