Logan Paul and Floyd Mayweather had a sham of an exhibition boxing match last Summer. The influencer has fancied himself a serious fighter and answered critics by scheduling a fight with the greatest pound-for-pound boxer of all time. Of course, the fight was a non-competitive exhibition match.
Despite the questionable legitimacy of the bout, the Logan Paul – Floyd Mayweather event drew big-time money. Paul has been accusing Mayweather of never paying him for the fight. Logan even went so far as to call the legendary pugilist a weasel.
The fight will now transition from the ring to the courtroom. Logan Paul has told TMZ Sports that he plans to sue the champion boxer for payment. Paul said the mistake came from not having professional promoters handle the money.
“It’s honestly bullsh*t. Like, having people who aren’t a professional promotional company control where the money goes, we made that mistake.
It’s Floyd Mayweather. Before we fought him, we were kind of willing to do whatever. Now after the fact, we’re kind of shooting ourselves in the foot because he’s a f*cking scumbag.”
Mayweather contends that he would’ve knocked out the aspiring fighter out in a competitive match. Logan Paul has said Floyd has reached out for a rematch. It looks like their next battle will be a legal one.
