Paige Spiranac Reveals Why She Hates Logan Paul Ahead Of Floyd Mayweather Fight

Golf star Paige Spiranac has called Logan Paul vs Floyd Mayweather a 'money grab' and revealed exactly why she 'hates' the YouTube star.

It was announced over the weekend that Mayweather would face Paul in a 'super exhibition' bout on February 20.

Mayweather has a 50-0 professional record, while Paul lost his only professional fight to fellow YouTuber KSI last year.

Speaking on her podcast, Playing A Round with Paige Renee, Spiranac vented per The Sun: "It's a money grab, there is going to be so much money thrown for that fight.

"It's insane that people actually want to see this happening.

"It's insane to see someone with a YouTube following or social following can make this happen.

"It just shows how powerful that young demographic that everyone is reaching out to get now and the fact that people are talking about this is mind blowing to me."

But she also claims fans of Paul sent her death threats back in 2018 after giving an anti-bullying speech.

Paul had come under huge scrutiny back then after filming a dead body hanging in Aokigahara forest, Japan.

He uploaded the video to YouTube and included it in a vlog, which then caught the attention of worldwide media.

27-year-old Spiranac explained: "I did an anti-bullying talk at a school and it was right after Logan Paul filmed a guy committing suicide in this forest.

"It was a huge controversy and I was asked what I thought about it.

"I said 'If you have a large following of a younger viewing audience you have to be careful with the content that you put out there'.

"And I think he should have been punished more by YouTube or his sponsors or there needed to be some form of consequence bigger than what he got.

"And I ended up receiving DEATH THREATS by all of these kids in that high school, that they were defending Logan Paul and so ever since then I have hated him.

"Because if that's the fan base he has, where you criticise him you literally going to have people attack you, not just silly stupid schoolboy bullying but horrible, horrible things, I just don't think they are really good people."

Paul apologised for the incident and has seen his public profile grown even bigger.
