Quite surprising for the martial arts world, was last year’s news that said Floyd Mayweather would share a ring with Logan Paul. One of the boxing greats, he agreed to do an exhibition with YouTuber, who has one professional match behind him, but also against other YouTuber.
However, Logan Paul is 15 inches taller than Floyd, and he also appeared at the weigh-in with 15 pounds more than Mayweather. The difference in the size of the two rivals was huge. Yet, knowing Floyd’s character and recognizing earning opportunities, from that perspective the match with Logan Paul was not so much a surprise.
In the end, the fight lasted eight rounds, and there was no official winner, because it was an exhibition. The fight took place in the sixth month of last year, and it was quite uninteresting, with a lot of clinching by Logan, who thus took advantage of his physical size and strength.
According to available information, that match sold about one million PPVs. However, Logan Paul claims that Mayweather still hasn’t paid him for that match, even though more than half a year has passed. He called out Logan Floyd on social media and other media, but Mayweather didn't seem overly concerned.
Logan Paul therefore decided to take a more concrete step. Namely, in an interview with the Mirror, his brother Jake revealed that Logan had filed a lawsuit against Mayweather. '' He really didn't pay off Logan.
A week or two ago, a lawsuit was filed. I press him (Floyd) legally, but also behind the scenes. However, it is a shame that Floyd '' Money 'Mayweather doesn't have enough money to pay off my brother. " Whether it’s Floyd’s provocation, lack of money, or simply non-compliance with the deal, it’s hard to say.
In any case, no matter how much the fight with Logan Paul was an ordinary circus, Floyd does not leave a good impression with such moves.
Schultz on Floyd
The famous comedian Andrew Schultz is also surprised that Floyd did not pay off his opponent “I was talking to Logan about it,” Schulz said.
“I was like ‘are you serious’ [about not being paid]? He goes ‘yeah, yeah, yeah, he hasn’t f------- paid me. I guess we’re going to have to sue him.’ It sucks because once you go into the lawsuits the lawyers make all the money…He owes him probably between 5 and 10 million dollars.
“He has not paid him. It’s been six months now. He was supposed to pay him within 90 days. And they have not paid him. And apparently they cut a side deal with Saudi Arabia and another place to stream the fight there and never told Logan or their people about it.
