Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul Boxing

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few years, you would have known that Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul had a controversial boxing fight in 2021. One of the reasons for this fight was the huge payday that it gave to both fighters, but especially Mayweather.

As Mayweather is the more famous and popular out of the two, he took the higher majority of the fight’s earnings at 60% compared to Logan Paul who received 40%. Mayweather is estimated to have earned around $30 million from the fight, while Paul is thought to have taken home around $20 million. Some sources say that CBS had 2 million pay-per-view buys, whilst others say that it was actually closer to 4 million.

This is quite a large disparity, but the money generated was said to be $99 million. Floyd Mayweather received a guaranteed purse of $30 million for his boxing match against Logan Paul, while Logan Paul received a guaranteed purse of $6.6 million.

Floyd Mayweather’s earnings from his boxing match against Logan Paul are more than double what he earned from his boxing match against the infamous UFC fighter Conor McGregor. It was also the most-watched pay-per-view boxing event since Floyd Mayweather’s fight with the Filipino southpaw boxing legend Manny Pacquiao in 2015.

Does Floyd Mayweather owe Logan Paul money?

There have been many rumors though that Logan Paul is still owed money from the fight. The YouTube star came out on social media stating that Floyd Mayweather owed him money. He said that the two had agreed to split the earnings 60-40, with Mayweather getting the larger share.

However, when Paul saw the pay-per-view numbers, he realized that he had only received a fraction of what he was owed. As a result, he has called on Mayweather to pay up. It remains to be seen whether Floyd will agree to do so.

As you can see in this video, Logan Paul says that he’s going to sue Mayweather as he hasn’t received the right amount of money. Apparently, he’s not the only person suing the undefeated boxing champion.

Mayweather supposedly owns the promotion arm of his fights and buys up all the best seats to then sell them on at a higher price. Floyd Mayweather’s response is that he hasn’t received all the pay-per-view money yet and that’s why Logan Paul hasn’t been paid. You can see what he said word for word in this video below.

However, many don’t believe the line that Mayweather is threading as there have been many reports that one of the greatest boxers of all time is actually broke. This would explain why he’s doing these exhibition fights with Logan Paul and another one rumored with Manny Pacquiao.

This saga definitely isn’t over and we’ll keep you up to date with what happens with the rest of the Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul money.
