Logan Paul sounds off on Mayweather

Paul recently appeared in an episode of the True Geordie podcast and sounded off on Mayweather for saying that Paul requested a rematch with him in a press conference.

He says, “He went on some press conference the other day and he had the audacity to tell the media that I asked for a rematch. 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? ” .

He then went on to add that he has no reason to ask for a rematch if he has not been paid for the first fight and also stated that Mayweather was the one who requested a rematch saying, ” If I haven’t been paid for the first one why on gods green earth would I ask you for a second fight knowing d**n well that I probably also not gonna get paid that I was owed for my work, you dumb**s, second off they asked us for a rematch”

It’s quite unclear whether Mayweather still owes the YouTuber money, as both sides have their own claims. Paul has come out on podcasts and talk shows to call out Mayweather, but is yet to take any legal action against him.

Mayweather, on the other hand, has said that Paul is using his name for clout and just wants a rematch. Given that their first match sold over a million PPV buys, a rematch is certainly something both of them will be considering. Till then, Paul has made it clear he will not let Mayweather off the hook until the issue is sorted.
