Logan Paul and Floyd Mayweather battled in an exhibition boxing match on Sunday night. The world was watching and that came with a huge payday for both celebs. Now they get to count all of that money.

There was some controversy after the fight. New video shows that Money likely knocked Paul out by accident and then held him up for the end of a round. Click here to check that out.

Logan Paul and Floyd Mayweather stand to make a lot of money out of this situation, because they had multi-faceted deals. Guaranteed money isn’t the only cash injection they will receive. Both also get a cut of the pay-per-view profits.

Mayweather reportedly could make as much as $100 million from the fight. His contract included a guaranteed $10 million payout and 50% of all pay-per-view earnings.

Logan Paul’s guarantee was $250,000 and 10% of all pay-per-view earnings. Obviously, with a nickname like Money, Floyd is going to make more.

The pay-per-view sold for $49.99. Not taking refunds into consideration, and there are a few of them, the early pay-per-view figures were reportedly disappointing for this fight.

We don’t know exactly how much each fighter took home just yet. The pay-per-view numbers have not come. It makes total sense to believe that Floyd Mayweather brought in anywhere between $50 million to $100 million and Logan Paul made between $5 million to $20 million. Both of those estimates are still very good paydays.
