Recently, Logan Paul has been talking about Mayweather not paying him his due for their fight. According to Paul, more than 6 months after their fight, Mayweather has still not paid Paul. So when the list for the top-earning YouTubers of 2021 came out and Paul saw himself ranked number 9, he was enraged.

Paul came in at number 9, with an estimated $18M earned in 2021.
