Furthermore, Paul mentioned in the ‘True Geordie’ podcast, “There was a press conference or something the other day. And he (Floyd Mayweather) had the audacity to tell the media that I asked for a rematch.”

He further added, “Let me just set the record straight. Why the f**k would I ask for a rematch? For someone who doesn’t pay you for the fight. If I haven’t been paid for the first one, why on God’s green earth, would I ask you for a second fight knowing damn well that I’m probably not gonna get paid the money that I was owed for my work. You dumba**. Second of, they asked us for a rematch.” 

Apparently, the YouTuber is not at all interested in a sequel with Mayweather, as he has not paid Paul’s share of the money the first time.
