For a long time, fans have been eagerly waiting for YouTube personality Logan Paul to duke it out with Floyd Mayweather in a boxing match. After it was delayed earlier in the year, the match was finally confirmed by Logan Paul.
The hype surrounding the megafight is only building up with each passing day and it certainly has gotten to Logan Paul’s head. Paul previously made a bold declaration that he will knock out Floyd Mayweather in the upcoming megafight
Both Mayweather and Paul have called each other out on several occasions as the fight draws near. There is also no doubt that the upcoming fight will be a big-money affair, but the question remains as to how much each competitor will be making.
According to a report by Cleaveland.com, Logan Paul is guaranteed $250,000 and a 10% revenue share from the PPV sales. While this is certainly a respectable sum of money, it pales in comparison to what Floyd Mayweather will make.
Living up to his ‘Money’ moniker, Mayweather is guaranteed to make $10 million in fight money on top of a 50% share of PPV sales. This makes his take near $100 million, which is certainly an exorbitant amount.
Interestingly enough, the upcoming fight will not be officially recorded as it will be an unsanctioned fight. Logan Paul vs Floyd Mayweather is set to take place on June 6 at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. We will have to see if Mayweather will dominate the fight or if Paul will somehow come up with the upset victory.
