Logan Paul has revealed he will be paid far more for fighting Floyd Mayweather than initially reported - but he'd have 'done it for free.'

Mayweather was rumoured to take home a guaranteed $5million in addition to 50 per cent of all PPV sales. Paul, meanwhile, would pocket $200,000 plus five per cent of PPV sales.

He has responded to those claims on 'Impaulsive' podcast and said: "Everyone wants to know about the money for this fight. Everyone wants to know what got Floyd to take this fight, was it the money?

"I'll say this, you're way off with your estimates, and you'll never know.

"I'd probably would have done this fight for free. It's an iconic opportunity, this is some legacy s***. I'd have done this for free.

"This is the coolest thing in the world. I get to grace the ring with one of the best boxers of all time and attempt to take his head off.

"But I didn't take it for free, I'm going to make a good amount."

Podcast co-host Mike Majlak delved a little deeper into the numbers and added: "Eight figures - you're not going to say it, but eight figures."

While Logan is occupied with 'Money' next month, younger brother Jake has been trying to rattle everyone in the UFC.

From Conor McGregor to company president Dana White, the 23-year-old has been throwing insults around to try and earn a fight.

Paul said: "He [Jake] pissed off Dana White.

"Now Dana has grouped us together which sucks. I love Dana White, I love the UFC. Now Dana thinks we're the same person.

"We're so different. I love the UFC fights. I want to do a UFC fight one day. I'm not saying now, let me get my skills up. Dana, take me back.

"I'm not Jake! Please. Bro, he's given me tickets to go to UFC fights before. F*ck! F*ck! I love Conor McGregor dude."
