Logan Paul tells Floyd Mayweather to "f***ing pay me" as YouTuber demands millions

Logan Paul is not giving up his efforts to be paid by Floyd Mayweather as he claims the ring legend still owes him millions from their exhibition fight.

Paul shared the ring with the former five-weight world champion Mayweather last June, with the YouTube star impressively going all eight rounds in the un-scored fight. The event was a big success and sold over one million pay-per-view buys, with Mayweather said to have earned around £52million for the 'legalised bank robbery' whilst Paul pocketed £15m.

Over a year on from the fight and Paul is still claiming that Mayweather owes him around "two to three million" for the fight. Paul first made the claim a few months after their fight and threatened to take legal action against Mayweather. Speaking of the alleged outstanding debt on his Impaulsive podcast: "I got paid a little bit, not like I should have got paid. I'm missing out on a few million. Tell him to f***ing pay me bro, he probably owes me between two and three [million]."

Mayweather initially addressed Paul's accusations by telling him to "be patient", whilst citing several of his past fights that he is yet to be fully paid from. 'Money' changed his tune when addressing the alleged outstanding debt at a recent press conference for his upcoming exhibition fight against Mikuru Asakura, claiming that the accusations are false.

"This is the guy who said he didn't get paid which we know is truly false, which is why I don't entertain the bull**** a lot of the time," Mayweather said. "We know he got paid and if he didn't get paid he wouldn't be trying to get another payday. It is so crazy that Logan Paul wants to do an exhibition again but it is the same guy that said he didn't get paid. It is what it is."

Mayweather's uncle Jeff even urged his nephew to pay Paul in full for their fight, as the ring legend continues to compete in more exhibition bouts despite the allegations of his outstanding debt to Paul. The YouTuber star's latest money demand is several million less than the $5m he claimed Mayweather still owed him when speaking on the Flagrant podcast in June.

"How can he do that? Is it not held in escrow or some s***? Mayweather has been boxing forever, he knows how to allocate money conveniently to make it look like it is an expense," Paul said. "He thinks he can do what he wants because I am new to the boxing game. See you in court! How many lawsuits can pile up for the same event?"
