Floyd Mayweather Boasts He Made $100 Million For 'Fake Fight' vs. Logan Paul
| Last updated
Floyd Mayweather has been caught on camera boasting that he made $100 million for his 'fake fight' with Logan Paul.
Mayweather, 44, and Paul, 26, went the distance in their high-profile exhibition bout earlier this month.
The former pound-for-pound boxing king pocketed an eye-watering nine-figure purse for his clash with the YouTube star, and he gloated that he's the only person capable of doing that as shown in a damning video.
Mayweather was in attendance for Gervonta Davis' world title victory over Mario Barrios and could be heard talking about his exhibition in the post-fight press conference.
He said: "I'm the only person that can do a fake fight and get $100 million. I could do legalised sparring and get $100 million."

Speaking after his contest with Paul, Mayweather broke down his 'Money' persona and spoke about his legacy.
"They say 'It's not all about the money' but the thing is... your kids can't eat legacy," said the 50-0 fighter.
"Patches on my trunks are worth $30 million alone, so who is the smartest man in boxing really?
"If you guys don't want to see me fight exhibitions then don't come, don't watch! When it comes to... legalised bank robbing... I'm the best.
"I don't care if y'all write good stories, if y'all write bad stories, at the end of the day, I will always have the last laugh.
"Damn, I'm writing this story about Floyd. Look at the house I go to and look at the house he go to.
"The guys y'all said was extraordinary, the Canelos [Alvarez], the [Manny] Pacquiaos, I made them look ordinary.
"When I see there's a chance for me to do a heist, a quick heist, at the end of the day, I'm the smart one.
"They say 'Oh Floyd don't look good like he used to look'... my bank account looking better and better each and every day."
