    Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul have already made millions, but they've got even richer this weekend.

    Mayweather has previously said he's likely to earn around £72million for his bout with Paul.

    “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.”

    Meanwhile, Paul told TMZ that he's likely to make around $20m (£14m) for his huge eight-rounder with Mayweather in Miami.

    The fight may have lasted the duration but the stats show there was only one winner, Floyd Mayweather.

    A reminder of the figures from the fight clearly acknowledge that the boxing legend got the better of his opponent.

    British YouTuber KSI has bragged he is the 'best boxer in the world' after Floyd Mayweather failed to knockout Logan Paul.

    The 27-year-old beat his rival in their professional fight in November 2019 after winning via split decision.

    But boxing legend Mayweather, 44, could only draw against his American compatriot in their exhibition bout at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami.

    Without a knockout, there was no winner declared, though most observers ringside agreed that Mayweather won the majority of the rounds.

    Following the contest, KSI – real name Olajide Olayinka Williams Olatunji – took to social media to declare himself the best fighter on the planet.

    He tweeted: "So…You’re saying I’m now the best boxer in the world?"

    Logan Paul has now, potentially, doubled his yearly intake.

    The YouTuber, 26, took on Floyd Mayweather on Sunday – lasting the full eight rounds in their exhibition bout to score an amazing moral victory.

    Although Paul was outclassed during the contest, 'Money Mayweather' didn't achieve the knockout many expected him to and even conceded, "He's better than I thought he was" about his opponent.

    Before the fight, it was estimated the YouTube star could earn as much as $20million (£14milion).

    That's roughly the same amount he reportedly earns yearly from his social media exploits, including from YouTube, his Impaulsive podcast and through advertising with the likes of Pepsi and Virgin Mobile.

    Incredibly, the social media personality turned boxer once revealed he made £2million from his own merchandise, Maverick Clothing in just three days.

    Forget 'Money Mayweather', Paul is making his own fortune inside and outside the ring now.

    Boxing fans claim Floyd Mayweather 'knocked out Logan Paul' but the iconic superstar 'held him up' to keep the fight going.

    Mayweather was in control throughout and landed some clean shots, which Paul to his credit was able to withstand.

    A counter right hand in round five was the pick of the bunch, as he evaded Paul's hook and fired back.

    It caused the social media star to desperately hold on – but in the eyes of some it was instead Mayweather holding him up to prolong the fight for entertainment purposes.

    One Twitter user said: "Floyd Mayweather actually knocked out Logan Paul, but held him up during the fight to carry it through 8 rounds."

    One responded: "They scamming people who paid to watch them."

    Another commented: "Joke."

    Another, in disagreement, commented: "If this is serious you're an idiot.. You think floyd could hold him up? Dont be silly."

    Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul's exhibition bout was blasted ‘the worst fight of all time’ and ‘battle of the cuddles’.

    Safety first tactics saw Paul avoid the KO defeat many predicted, though fans were left fuming.

    One said: "I really just watched a 8 round hugging match for 30 mins."

    Another said: "They robbed everyone in the arena and on PPV. Worst fight ever."

    One, posting a video of Mayweather promising a KO, posted: "Battle Of The Cuddles."

    Johnny Nelson said Floyd Mayweather had a 'reality check' and his 'pride dented' against Logan Paul and will NOT fight the brother Jake.

    Nelson said it is a sign the boxing legend should hang up the gloves for good having been unable to stop his much larger yet inexperienced opponent.

    And he reckons Mayweather will avoid a fight with Logan's younger brother Jake, who is 3-0 all by knockout in his own career.

    Nelson, 54, said on Sky Box Office: "I don't think Floyd would.

    "I think he's had a reality check today, saying, 'You know what, I've rinsed this as much as I can'

    "I think probably his pride's been dented a little bit by not getting rid of him.

    "I'm quite sure he'd love to be able to close the show tonight but he just couldn't close it how he wanted to."

    Logan Paul proved he wasn't nervous as he even joked about by wearing a £100,000 Pokemon card while entering the ring.

    Though it is fair to say Mayweather took it equally seriously by wearing an 'Only Fans' cap in his ringwalk.

    One thing's for sure, it will be interesting to see what the pair have up their sleeve next if Paul vs Mayweather 2 happens.

    Logan Paul was as brash as ever in his post-match press conference, and who can blame him after going eight rounds with Floyd Mayweather.

    Here is what he had to say on how he felt moments before the fight began: "I was waiting to get nervous, and never did…scares me.

    "Makes me question my humanity. I asked Milton and Jeff, when am I going to get nervous, when is my heart going to star beating fast…it never did. I've got to get checked out."

    Logan's success was all down to WWE superstar Sami Zayn says…Sami Zayn.

    Way to toot your own horn.

  • George Moore


    It was a tighter contest than many would have anticipated and there are plenty of people who’d like to see a repeat of this contest to establish a definitive winner. What do YOU think?

    It looks like Logan had fun out there…

    The Paul brothers are still not satisfied after this morning's fight and Jake is eyeing another big name, Connor McGregor.

    But apparently the former UFC double-champ is not paying him any attention.

    Casey Neistat showed support for fellow Youtuber Logan after the fight, expressing a similar sentiment many took from the fight.

    If noise grows that Mayweather actually lost could we see the pair back in the ring for a rematch?

    Only time will tell.

    Floyd Mayweather has dismissed claims he lost the fight, while taking a sly dig at his opponent's style.

    In his post-fight press conference he said: "When that money comes we'll see who is the real winner. Because at the end of the day I'm going into the Hall of Fame for Boxing.

    "I have nothing to prove. I had a great career. If they're happy with holding eight rounds, grappling for eight rounds…congratulations."

    Despite all the taunting and silly antics pre-fight, Logan Paul had nothing but respect for Floyd Mayweather after the clash.

    Paul vs Mayweather may have ended in a draw but one man who you can trust to name a definitive winner is Mike Tyson.

    The former boxer turned podcaster will share his thoughts on the bout later today, over on his Instagram.

    Do not miss it.

    For an exhibition match this fight drew attention from far and wide.

    Even Twitter CEO Jack Dorsy was in attendance to show his support to Floyd Mayweather.

    There could be a few stars who want to see a rematch…

    Jake Paul has also showed some behind-the-scenes footage of the fight.

    He took a video of Logan unwinding in the dressing room after the fight, saying he just beat Floyd Mayweather before bursting out laughing.

    And 'The Maverick' could only do the same after defying the odds against Mayweather.

  • Kealan Hughes


    Meanwhile, Jake Paul is not having Canelo's dig at his brother one bit.

    The Youtube star has returned straight to self promotion by disrespecting another huge boxing name.

    This time he has claimed Canelo 'can't sell PPVs', before going on to say he would 'eat him alive'.

    It appears Jake is gearing up for his next fight already, with former UFC champion Tyron Woodley his next opponent.

    Youtuber Joe Weller believes Logan Paul actually got the better of Floyd Mayweather.

    Exhibition rules state there can be no winner without a knockout, but Paul certainly made a good case for himself.

    Weller took to Twitter in hurried excitement after the bout, saying: "Logan Paul beats Floyd Mayweather what the actual f***."

    Nicola Adams is one boxer who has mocked the style of Paul vs Mayweather, criticising the lack of actual boxing.

    But perhaps she is just a little relieved after her promise of giving away a free ps5 to each Twitter follower – if Logan won – did not come to fruition.

  • Kealan Hughes


    Logan Paul proved a lot of people wrong by going all eight rounds with Floyd Mayweather.

    Perhaps it is unsurprising some still want to doubt the validity of his credentials – as highlighted in the tweet below.

    Did 'Money' go easy on the Youtuber?
