Mayweather fought Paul earlier this month, but the 44-year-old boxer recently accidentally revealed that the bout was a “fake fight.”
During a press conference for a fight involving Mayweather’s protege Gervonta Davis, Money Mayweather was caught on video saying, “I’m the only person that can do a fake fight and get 100Ms (millions). I could do legalized sparring and get 100 million.”

There were estimates that Mayweather would receive a payday of $35 million in his bout against Logan Paul.
Previously, Floyd Mayweather stated, “My trunks alone, just my trunks alone, $30 million. Just with the patches on my trunks, that’s $30 million.”
The Mayweather-Paul fight allegedly sold 1 million $50 PPVs.
In the end, the YouTube star went the distance against the prizefighter – all eight rounds – at the exhibition boxing match at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami.
