Logan Paul 'Reveals Punishment' For Missing Weight Ahead Of Floyd Mayweather Fight

Logan Paul is set to take on Floyd Mayweather Jr. next weekend in an exhibition bout.

But while you might think it enough for a relative novice to have to go toe to toe with one of the greatest boxers who has ever lived, Logan is also under immense pressure to make the weight.

According to reports in the Mirror, the YouTuber has revealed he will be fined $100,000 (£70,000) for every pound he is over the agreed limit.

As it's an exhibition fight, Logan is allowed to be considerably heavier than Mayweather when they stand on the scales.

However, with the undefeated boxing legend expected to weigh in at 160lbs, Logan must not come in above 190lbs - meaning he must cut at least 10lbs on his previous fight weight for KSI back in 2019.

The shocking revelation was made in a video posted by TikTok star Tayler Holder ahead of his own boxing debut against YouTuber AnEsonGib the following weekend.

The clip, which appears to have since been deleted, was posted with the caption 'have to weight in at 190lbs, okay no problem'.

It also reportedly shows Logan stepping onto the scales and saying: "For every pound I'm overweight it's a $100,000 fine."

But it's not just Logan who has been trying to secure himself big money fights in recent months.

His brother Jake is working tirelessly to convince UFC legend Conor McGregor to get in the ring with him. And he doesn't lack any of the confidence of his elder brother either.

The 24-year-old recently shared his thoughts on why he is so confident in his ability to knock out the Notorious.

Speaking to The Sun, he said: "First and foremost I'm a better athlete than McGregor.

"He never played football, he never played lacrosse, he never wrestled, he was never an All-State football player.

"I'm taller by four inches or so and I'm about 60 pounds, 50 pounds heavier without a weight cut.

"And that's what a lot of people don't understand when I'm hitting these guys - I've got knockout power because I'm cutting down from 210lbs.

"The other side of this is him underestimating me.

"He's going to come into this, be chilling on his yachts, be babysitting his three little kids, be going out to dinners with his wife, playing in the beach in the sand, thinking Jake Paul's a walk in the park.

"When I'm going to be hustling every single day to beat this guy."
