Logan Paul Shares Footage Of FaceTime With Floyd Mayweather That 'Pi**ed' Him Off
Logan Paul has shared footage of a personal conversation with Floyd Mayweather and detailed exactly how it resulted in their 2021 super fight.
YouTuber Paul is set to battle the 50-0 boxing legend on February 20 and it all started with a fan meet and greet on Fanmio.
Mayweather allows fans the chance to chat with him for a fee, but he got more than he bargained for when Paul appeared.
"You down to fight me?" Paul begins from 2:13 in the video.
"If you're a real fighter, yeah," Mayweather then replied. "The thing is, you know who I am, but I don't know who you are."
Paul then insists 'Money' is lying and that the pair have met at Mayweather's gym multiple times over the years to which he responds: "That don't mean I know who you are. There's 1000 people on the internet."
The 25-year-old continues to goad Mayweather by joking he is losing his memory and poking fun at his '1000 people' line.
He then gets down to business and states: "What I want to do is create the biggest f**king fight the world has ever seen."
Mayweather then hit back with: "Without you I can do that.

"You already know, this ain't what you do. You play boxing, but I fight for real. You know that."
To that, Paul claims: "Ok, show me. You don't need to know who I am but I know this will be one of the biggest fights in the history of the internet, ever. There is no bigger headline."
That claim sees Mayweather bring the conversation to a close and ask to be put on the next call, as Paul says he got under his skin.
Despite how keen Paul was to set up a fight with the 43-year-old, he admits the fight itself is 'f**king ridiculous.'
"None of this is comprehensible," he told Food Truck Diaries. "This makes no f**king sense.
"My manager, [this] is months ago, comes up to me, he says 'Logan would you fight Floyd Mayweather?'
"I go, 'I mean yes I would, but why are you asking me that question? Like go do something else, this makes no sense, how is that going to be a thing ever?'
"I think a month later, he approached me with a contract. He said 'If you sign here, you're going to be fighting Floyd Mayweather.'
"I said 'Sure Jeff, I'll sign your fantasy contract. Like f**k you, why would this ever happen?'
"I signed it, and then after just months and months of going back and forth and figuring out dates, we had three different dates, and how to announce it, and just like the strategy behind it.
"It finally came to fruition, and this event that supersedes everything I've ever done in my life, is finally solidified."
