Floyd Mayweather ‘Is Broke’, Claims YouTuber Jake Paul

According to YouTuber Jake Paul, boxing champion Floyd Mayweather failed to pay his brother for their exhibition match because the latter is ‘poor.

In a fight with Mayweather that lasted eight rounds over a year ago, his older brother Logan competed the entire time and has frequently claimed that he was not paid in full for the fight.

Although Mayweather has refuted this assertion, Jake has supported his brother’s position by making comments that seem to imply that the boxing legend has lost his £1 billion fortune.

In an interview with Rob Moore, Jake said: ‘Floyd Mayweather is broke. I’ve been saying it all the time. I think he probably spent it on the girls he pays to be around him.’

The remarks follow Logan’s earlier this month use of Instagram to poke fun at Mayweather on the occasion of their fight’s first anniversary.

He said: ‘One year ago today, I fought Floyd Mayweather.

‘He’s hard to hit, but even harder to collect money from. Who should I fight next?’

Logan received £15 million of Mayweather’s anticipated £52 million payday following the bout.

The American YouTuber’s assertions have been called “bull****” by the boxing great, who also asserts that Paul has since offered that the two engage in another exhibition match.

‘This is the guy who said he didn’t get paid, which we know is truly false, which is why I don’t entertain the bull**** a lot of the time,’ Mayweather said at the press conference to announce his latest exhibition fight, against Japanese mixed martial artist Mikuru Asakura.

‘We know he got paid and if he didn’t get paid, he wouldn’t be trying to get another payday. It is so crazy that Logan Paul wants to do an exhibition again, but it is the same guy that said he didn’t get paid. It is what it is.’

Logan responded to Andrew Schultz’s mockery of the undefeated 50-0 boxer’s inability to knock him out during the Flagrant Show.

He said: ‘Floyd Mayweather, you punch drunk idiot, read my lips. Oh wait, you can’t. Where is my money, b****? Floyd hasn’t paid me for our fight.

‘Who am I, the IRS [Internal Revenue Service]? You can’t dodge taxes like you do punches, dummy. How can you call yourself the greatest of all time when you couldn’t even finish me? What am I, high school? Your punches are softer than the pillow Conor McGregor makes Dillon Danis bite.’

Mayweather earlier made reference to Paul’s allegations back in February when he claimed that getting the money can “take a while.”

‘This comes with the territory,’ Mayweather told The Pivot Podcast.

‘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 checks 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.’

Despite “Money” Mayweather becoming one of the highest-paid athletes in the world during his boxing career, Jake Paul believes that he is “broke.”

In May 2021, Mayweather told the ‘Million Dollaz Worth of Game’ show: ‘I’ve made a billion.’

‘I’ve reached that four years ago. [Now I’m] over $1.2billion. I knew from the beginning I was the best in boxing, from day one.

‘I just knew I was better than every other fighter. There will never be a fighter better than me, never.

‘Tell me another fighter that beat 16 world champions straight? Tell me another fighter that, in just two fights, made $650million?…

‘For Pacquiao I made $300million, for McGregor I made $350million.’
