FLOYD MAYWEATHER will be paid 25 times more than YouTube personality Logan Paul for their exhibition bout, it has been astonishingly claimed.
The pair are set to meet in the ring in February next year after a verbal war of words.

And entertainment reporter Daniel Keem has claimed that Mayweather, nicknamed Money Man, will receive a much bigger slice of the purse when they do battle.
It has been claimed that Mayweather is guaranteed $5million (£3.7m) plus 50 per cent of all PPV sales.
In comparison, Paul will receive just $200,000 and a measly 5 per cent of PPV.
“My sources are pretty dead on,” Keem revealed on his YouTube channel DramaAlert.
“And my source gave me a text message yesterday saying Mayweather is getting paid $5million up front and 50 per cent of all the sales of the pay-per-view.
“Logan is only getting paid $200,000 up front and only 5 per cent of all the sales of the pay-per-view.”
When Mayweather, 43, fought his exhibition fight with Tenshin Nasukawa in Japan in 2018, he earned around £6.8m.
While Logan Paul made around £680,000 for his 2019 boxing match against fellow social media personality KSI.

But Keem has a theory why Logan Paul has apparently agreed to the terms.
He said: “So Logan Paul is getting wildly underpaid for this. Why would Logan Paul agree to this?
“I personally think it’s clout. This is going to be such a big match, he might not make a ton of money with this contract – but it might be worth it for him to have the opportunity to be a legend.”
