Boxing icon Floyd Mayweather has boasted about earning £247million ($300m) every month, despite Jake Paul's accusations that the 50-0 legend is "broke".
Mayweather has been frequently derided by Paul's older brother Logan, who claims the 45-year-old still owes him millions of dollars from their exhibition bout in the summer of 2021. Logan has recently stated that he intends on taking the former featherweight and light middleweight champion to court as he believes Mayweather owes him between "two and five million" dollars.
However, Logan is not the only Paul brother who has been on Mayweather's case, as Paul also waded into the tension between the two megastars, by sensationally claiming the former champion is "broke".

“Floyd Mayweather is broke," Paul said in an eyebrow raising interview with FightHub TV. "That’s what a lot of people don’t realise. He gets these big cheques and doesn’t pay taxes on them.
"Then the IRS comes hunting him down later. He owes a lot of people I know money. Logan is deep down on that list. So, I don’t know if Logan will ever get paid. It’s kind of f***** up!”
Unsurprisingly, Mayweather has strong refuted these claims from the former Disney star, claiming his many investments, including but not limited to his boxing promoter company 'Mayweather Promotions' and his NASCAR Cup Series named 'The Money Racing Team'.

“I will continue to give back to the sport of boxing in my time, and I will also give back financially because I got it,” Mayweather said after being named in the International Boxing Hall of Fame.
"To my team, my guys in New York, and my other real estate team that’s here today, we can’t be stopped. In 32 months, I put myself in a position with a smart business team to make $300m a month. It all started from the sport of boxing.”
Mayweather is also rumoured to have earned a further £81m from fighting sparring partner Don Moore, as well as a further £1.2m by attending a press conference announcing a boxing show case against Japanese MMA star Mikuru Asakura.
And while many have slammed Mayweather's many exhibition fights, since his official retirement last year, he hit back at his critics by comparing himself to the likes of Warren Buffett and Bill Gates.
"They're upset because I'm smart, I kept all my faculties and made a lot of smart investments," Mayweather said in a social media video. "When great people like Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, the Waltons, the people who own Walmart and Walgreens, when they're getting money in their 50s, their 60s, 70s, 80s, even 90s, it's ok. I was able to work my way up and leave boxing on my own terms."
