Mayweather names mind-boggling cash purse he’ll make from Paul fight

Floyd Mayweather has revealed the jaw-dropping cash purse he is set to make from his fight against Logan Paul.

The American is set to take on the YouTube sensation on Sunday evening US time at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, with the UK time around 4am.

The event, which has drawn huge controversy, will be broadcast on Sky Sports Box Office and will cost £16.95.

And the two fighters are set to pocket absolute shedloads of cash in the process, with Mayweather admitting he has already made $30m (£21m) from the build-up alone.

But it does not stop there and the 50-0 fighter has claimed he could make up to $100m (£70m) from the bout.

He said: "For the build-up so far, I've made something upwards of 30million (US Dollars).

"(I'll make) Between 50 and 100 (million US Dollars). Not bad for the Mayweather zone."

Though the bill has been made an exhibition match, Mayweather has insisted he is in a tricky position.

He added: "To me, it's a win-win but I'm in a no-win because if I knock him out fast in the first round, they're gonna be like 'Aw man this wasn't worth it.'

"If I let it go a few rounds and drag it out, they're gonna be like 'Aw man, he let a YouTuber hang in it for a few rounds'.

"But, it is what it is. We're gonna have some fun Sunday."

Mayweather has come under fire for risking his integrity in the sport but Money has hit back at his critics.

He said last week: "He's huge on YouTube, he has a huge following and before I had even heard of YouTube I was already huge in the sport of boxing.

"And when you bring his world with my world… man it's going to be crazy."
