Logan Paul claims he still hasn’t been paid for his fight against Floyd Mayweather last year, saying he plans to take him to court over the matter.
The duo went head-to-head at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida, on 6 June 2021. After eight rounds, the fight ended with no clear-cut winner.
At the time, it was reported Mayweather would be taking 50 percent of the pay-per-view (PPV) revenue, but that Paul was making much less than the former boxing champion – not that he’d be getting nothing, with estimations that he’d take home around $20 million (£14m).
Paul first claimed he hadn't been paid back in December that year, trolling Mayweather by demanding: ''Pay me my Money u f**king corny weasel of a human.”
In January 2022, he then joked in a video about people Mayweather owned money to, calling on his former opponent to give him the ‘rest of the money’, saying: “Just raise me on the priority on the list of people to be paid.”
And Paul is now claiming Mayweather still hasn’t coughed up, and plans to take legal action to get his money.
Speaking to TMZ, he explained how he’s done with talking, and that it’s time to see Mayweather in court.
"No, he has not paid me in full," he said. "That is a fact. Short a few mil."
When asked if he’s tried talking things over with Floyd’s camp, Paul said: “Nah. We're taking this one to court."
He added: "See you in the courtroom. Congrats on going to prison, Floyd."
It’s clear Paul won't be letting this one go, having even taken to Twitter back in January to express his frustration once again.

Sharing a list of 'YouTube's Top 10 Earners in 2021', which featured him in second place, Paul wrote: “And imagine if Floyd paid me!”
Previously discussing the financial benefits of the clash on his Impaulsive podcast, Paul explained: "Everyone wants to know about the money for this fight. Everyone wants to know what got Floyd to take this fight, was it the money?
"I’ll say this, you’re way off with your estimates, and you’ll never know.
"I’d probably would have done this fight for free. It’s an iconic opportunity, this is some legacy s***. I’d have done this for free […] But I didn’t take it for free, I’m going to make a good amount."
