Things aren’t always as they seem!
We’re shocked, but not surprised to hear that the Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul matchup wasn’t “real.”
Floyd Mayweather, Jr. was caught on tape sharing that he walked away with $100 million for what he called a “fake fight” in his exhibition match against famous YouTuber Logan Paul earlier this month.
According to Fox News, Mayweather’s comments were picked up in microphones set up for a press conference Saturday night following Gervonta Davis’ 11-round knockout of Mario Barrios in Atlanta.
“I’m the only person you know that can do a fake fight and get a 100 M’s (millions),” said Mayweather as he walked off of the stage. “I could do legalized sparring and get 100 M’s.”

Mayweather has served as a mentor to Davis and was spotted at Saturday’s fight showing his support.
This is not the first time that he has spoken about the money made from his eight-round fight against Paul.
“When it comes to legalized bank robbing, I’m the best,” said Mayweather after his match with Logan. “I don’t care if you write good stories, I don’t care if you write bad stories, at the end of the day, I will always have the last laugh.”
TMZ Sports previously reported that Mayweather was expected to bring in between $50 million and $100 million. They also revealed that he racked up $30 million before the first punch was even thrown.
“When I see there’s a chance for me to do a heist. A quick heist. At the end of the day, I’m the smart one. They said, ‘Floyd don’t look good like he used to look.’ My bank account is looking better and better each and every day,” continued Floyd in an interview following his fight.
They call him Floyd “Money” Mayweather for a reason, this is nothing new for the Money Team creator.
