Logan Paul is taking Floyd Mayweather to court

Logan Paul is taking Floyd Mayweather to court

Logan Paul has once again hit out at Floyd Mayweather for still owing him money from their exhibition bout that took place last year.

Nearly one year ago, Paul and Mayweather went head to head in a non-scoring exhibition bout.

After going the full eight rounds, many were curious as to why the bout was even made. 

Since the pair fought, the YouTuber has been active on social media claiming that Mayweather still owes him a few million.

Now, he has threatened to take the former professional boxer to court.

Speaking to TMZ Sports, Paul said: “No, he has not paid me in full. That is a fact. Short a few mil. We’re taking this one to court. See you in the courtroom. Congrats on going to prison, Floyd.”

Responding to Paul’s claims, Mayweather has stated that he is still yet to receive money from his last few professional bouts.

After appearing on ‘The Pivot Podcast,’ Mayweather 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, that takes a while. Nothing comes right away. I’m still collecting cheques 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.”

Even Floyd’s uncle has informed him to pay Logan the agreed full fight purse.

Meanwhile, Logan’s brother Jake has also recently had his say on the whole situation regarding the pay dispute.

Speaking to Fight Hub TV, when asked about the current fight purse issue, Jake said: “Not, not yet. Floyd Mayweather is broke. That’s what a lot of people don’t realise. I don’t know if Logan will ever get paid. It’s kind of f***** up!”

Floyd was due to fight Don Moore last weekend, however, there was a last-minute cancellation following the death of the President of the United Arab Emirates.
