What is Logan Paul's net worth? Here's how much YouTuber could earn from fight with Floyd Mayweather
'I think I’m going to make this very hard for Floyd,' Logan Paul said about his 'big fight' with boxing legend, Floyd Mayweather
YouTuber Logan Paul is hitting the headlines as he is ready to take on retired boxing legend and 15-time champion Floyd Mayweather in a boxing match. The much-awaited fight is scheduled to take place on Sunday, June 6, at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. The fight will be aired on Showtime PPV.
Although Paul has had some experience in the ring but going up against the boxing legend, Mayweather is not going to be an easy feat. But the YouTuber doesn't think so. Talking about the fight, Paul said, “I’m younger, I’m longer, I’m stronger, I’m more powerful than him and I want it more." As fans eagerly await the highly anticipated match between the YouTuber and the boxing legend, here's a look at Paul's net worth.
Logan Paul's early life
Logan Alexander Paul was brought up in Ohio with his younger brother Jake, who is also a YouTuber and internet personality. Paul started making internet videos for a YouTube channel called 'Zoosh' when he was 10 years old. In 2013, registered his YouTube channel, 'TheOfficialLoganPaul' and gained a massive following. Later, he created the 'Logan Paul Vlogs' channel on August 29, 2015, which has as of now, more than 22 million subscribers. Apart from being a YouTuber, Paul is an actor, podcaster and professional boxer as well.
Talking about the 'big fight' earlier this week, Paul said he was looking to defeat Mayweather in the first round itself. But when talking to USA TODAY Sports, he sounded a little less energetic. “I think it’s going to be a dogfight,’’ He said, “I think I’m going to make this very hard for Floyd. As we know and have heard of the legend that is Floyd Mayweather, he’s 44 years old and Father Time, I would imagine and bet, has taken its toll on Floyd. I’m going to make him dig very, very deep."
Paul also mentioned, “If you took a cruiserweight, a good cruiserweight, and put him in with Floyd Mayweather right now, what do you think would happen?" You know, there’s weight classes in boxing for a reason." He then added, "Part of the reason I’m going into this fight as confident as I am, it’s because my style is atypical. I’m versatile, I’m elusive, my reflexes are really, really good, I’m fast, I’m strong. And as much as trouble as we have trying find guys who can give me a look like Floyd, I’d be surprised if he’s having an easy time finding someone who can give him a look like me."
Mayweather, on the other hand, did not sound concerned during a May 6 news conference to promote his match. “I don’t have to talk about what I’m going to do,'' he said. "The world knows what I’m going to do."
Logan Paul's net worth
Paul's major earnings come from his YouTube Channel which has over 22 million subscribers. He has also been running the 'Impaulsive' podcast since November 2018, which currently has over 2.7 million followers on YouTube. Logan's videos have been viewed more than 5 billion times. According to Celebrity Net Worth, Paul's net worth is estimated to be somewhere around 19$ million. Paul has publicly put his salary at $20 million, which means he anticipates Showtime bringing in $200 million in pay-per-view money.
Despite the likelihood that Paul could possibly be knocked out, Paul is set to make a killing at the match. According to sportingfree.com, Paul’s base salary for the fight is $250,000, plus 10% of the fight’s pay-per-view earnings. While Mayweather is guaranteed to make $5 million from the fight plus a 50% share of PPV sales. The fight is expected to break PPV records as the ticket to watch the exhibition fight is $49.99. Mayweather vs Conor McGregor broke many sales records to become the second biggest PPV in boxing history. And experts are expecting the same numbers from this bout considering Paul’s 2.7 million fans on YouTube.
