Logan Paul claims "corny weasel" Floyd Mayweather still hasnt paid him for bout

Logan Paul has kicked off a row over pay with rival Floyd Mayweather Jr six months after they battled to a draw at the Hard Rock Stadium despite the gulf in experience.

The YouTube star secured a lucrative bout against one of the best boxers in history despite losing on his professional debut to KSI, and performed better than many had expected.

With the bout not being scored, Paul walked away with the bragging rights after going the distance with reports suggesting he walked away with just short of £4million.

However – the 26-year-old has hinted that all is not right with his earnings, calling out Mayweather on Instagram shortly after hinting his boxing career was over.

He wrote: "Pay me my money u f****** corny weasel of a human @floydmayweather."

Mayweather, who is the highest grossing boxer in PPV history, said that he was looking to walk away with around £72million from the bout, with Paul's earnings an estimated £3.91million.

"I can fight a fighter right now and I can guarantee myself $35million (£25m). I can eventually probably make $50million (£36m) for just a regular fight," Mayweather said.

"Or me and Logan Paul can go out, entertain, have fun and make nine figures $100million (£72m) or more."

The call-out came after Paul updated his followers on his primary objectives for 2022.

He said of his goals: "Exercising Kindness, Transition to Business, Creative Innovation."

Identifying his main "Goals", he then added his target to build a Web3 community, lead the shift from NFT 1.0 to NFT 2.0, to gross $100 million (£75 million), to become the leading collectible portfolio platform and to produce a best-selling book.

That came following links with a bout against Mike Tyson, who he recently compared to his brother Jake.

He said on the Impaulsive podcast: "You know what they've been saying? They've been saying this: our great grandparents had Muhammad Ali, our parents had Mike Tyson, and we have Jake Paul."

Twitter users recently poked fun at the younger Paul brother by comparing him to Ali after he explained why he doesn't initially celebrate after knocking out opponents.
