Logan Paul Wants Floyd Mayweather To Go To Jail For Not Paying Him 'Millions' From Boxing Match
| Last updated
Logan Paul claims Floyd Mayweather still owes him millions of dollars following their boxing match last year.
The YouTuber and podcaster told TMZ that he’s taking Mayweather to court because he alleges the boxer failed to pay him the total amount after their bout at Miami Gardens, which reportedly sold more than one million pay-per-view buys.
The TMZ reporter asked Paul if he’s received payment, to which he responded: “No, he has not paid me in full.
“That is a fact. Short a few mil.”
The infamous content creator was then asked if he had tried to smooth things over with Mayweather and his team, but Paul said: “Nah. We’re taking this one to court.”
He added: “See you in the courtroom. Congrats on going to prison, Floyd.”
Yikes. It seems that things have become even fierier out of the ring.
While it’s unclear how much Paul was promised, Men's Health reports that Mayweather walked away with a jaw-dropping USD $100 million from the fight.
But this isn’t the first time the controversial YouTuber has called out Mayweather for not honouring their agreement.
After it was alleged that Mayweather spent his earnings from the fight on the private jet supplied by Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, Paul took to Twitter, calling him a ‘rat’.
While posting a photo of a headline reporting the boxer’s new purchase, Paul wrote: “Yeah because the dirty little rat hasn’t paid me yet lol. It’s been 6 months.
“But no worries @Floydmayweather, @KSI and I are going to make back the money you stole from me & more.”

Last month, Mayweather defended his actions and claimed that he’s still waiting on money he made years ago as well.
Mayweather told The Pivot Podcast: “This comes with the territory.
"To them, that’s real money, and I like the YouTubers. The money on the back end though, from pay-per-view, that takes a while. Nothing comes right away. I’m still collecting cheques from fights seven or eight years ago.
“They just hate when the table is turned. Be happy with the biggest payday you ever got in your life."
Until then, you can catch Mayweather chowing down some caviar and jet setting around the globe.
