Despite their high-profile exhibition match which concluded two years ago, Logan Paul‘s relationship with boxing legend Floyd Mayweather is not amicable. The YouTube star went the distance with Mayweather. Although, it was a scoreless exhibition bout at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami.

Moreover, Paul stated that he has yet to receive the full payment owed to him for the event. The issue has been raised by Logan Paul on a lot of occasions, and one such moment came again on his podcast ‘Impaulsive’. In a recent episode, he revealed that he still hasn’t been paid for his exhibition bout against Mayweather.

A teenage girl who has garnered over 900k followers on her social media, Jazzy was invited to Paul’s podcast not long ago. In that episode, she shared her experience as a little girl interviewing Jay-Z and Nicki Minaj. Amid such conversations, the internet sensation asks the Youtuber-turned-prizefighter what made him agree to fight ‘Money’.

To this, Paul said, “I knew that if I was able to fight Floyd Mayweather and not get knocked out, it would change the course of my life forever. My support system was strong and I had a lot of people reach out and tell me, ‘You’re gonna win.’” Then, Jazzy gave a shoutout to the boxing legend, and Paul steered the conversation to the unpaid money controversy.

He said, “Yeah, pay me my f***ing money. He owes me $1.5 million, tell ’em. No, stay out of it.” As it turns out, Mayweather still hasn’t paid the Youtuber his money. And allegedly as per recent developments, he’s rejected the fight offer from Paul’s brother Jake Paul as well.

Mayweather doesn’t want to associate with the Paul brothers

In the aftermath of his recent victory against Andre AugustJake Paul has allegedly disclosed that Floyd Mayweather has declined his offer for a future fight. This revelation comes as a notable development, especially considering Mayweather’s previous engagement with Logan Paul. Despite the precedent set by Logan’s bout, Jake Paul’s claim suggests a different outcome this time.

In the recent post made on X by Happy Punch Promotions, Paul’s actual statements were revealed. He stated, “We tried to make the Floyd fight happen, he ducked it.” Well, the reason could also be tied to the infamous altercation between Mayweather and Paul back in March 2023, after the Miami Heat game.

Many thought that this could be the build-up to the potential fight in the future, however, nothing of that sort happened after their feud. Things got toned down with time. But the fans are still in hope of their showdown in the ring one day.
