Paul has challenged former athletes and celebrities to fight him in the ring after he was declared the loser of the face-off after the original face-off ended in a tie. Here's a look at the amount of money he will earn in a fight with Mayweather.
How much money will Logan Paul make if he wins?
The Paul brothers, Jake and Logan, have both set their sights on boxing as their next venture. "We're just at the start of where this potentially could go," Jake admitted in a Forbes interview. Mayweather is one of the highest-paid fighters in the world, according to him.
Logan's first professional fight against KSI is thought to have earned the influencer $900,000, though the final figures are expected to be much higher. The fight brought in millions of dollars in ticket sales, and when you factor in the ad revenue from the multiple YouTube videos and diss tracks Logan prepared and published in the build-up to the battle, he certainly made more than enough money to make up for his loss.
Reports are that Mayweather will make $10M guaranteed just for walking into the ring at Hard Rock Stadium, and he'll pick up 50% of the pay-per-view dollars as well. 🤑— decardi jr. (@decardinell) June 4, 2021

Paul was absolutely open about his base wage for the Mayweather fight. His prize pool is $250,000, with 10 per cent of every pay-per-view sales going to him. He intends to earn $20M from the fight, according to him, Distractify reported.
Mayweather, on the other hand, has gone on to suggest that he will make upwards of $100M in his fight with the YouTuber, and it has been stated that he will be paid $10M simply to go into the ring with Paul. In addition, he will receive 50 per cent of all pay-per-view sales for the competition. The fight will be an exhibition bout, which means that though both players will most certainly profit from it, it will not be recorded on either player's professional fighting records.
On June 6, 2021, the action will take place at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida. The date was originally slated for February 20, but was pushed back due to Covid-19. If you want to order the fight, you'll have to do so through Showtime pay-per-view, which is different from the Fanmio site where it was originally planned to air.
