Logan Paul has shared a FaceTime session with boxing legend Floyd Mayweather.
Paul is a popular YouTube personality with 22.6 million subscribers. Like his brother, Jake, Logan has dipped his toes in the boxing waters. He has a professional and an amateur bout under his belt. Both were against fellow YouTuber KSI.
Paul and Mayweather are set to share the ring in February. This will be an exhibition bout. With Mayweather being all about his “Money,” some may be surprised to know that he wasn’t on board with the matchup initially.
Paul took to his YouTube channel to unveiled a FaceTime call that he had with Mayweather before their bout came to fruition (h/t talkSPORT.com).
Logan Paul: “Hey, I got a question for you. Do you wanna fight me?”
Floyd Mayweather: “If you’re real fighter, yeah.”
LP: “Yeah, I’m a real fighter!”
FM: “The thing is, you know who I am but I don’t know who you are.”
LP: “Bro, I know you’re lying for a fact! I’ve been in your gym so many times when you’ve been there, we’ve shaken hands, I say ‘hey what’s up’ you say ‘hey what’s up’.”
FM: “That don’t mean I know who you are.”
LP: “So you’re losing your memory?”
FM: “I don’t know who you are.”
LP: “That sounds like memory loss!”
FM: “There’s a thousand people on the internet!”
LP: “That’s it? A thousand? I’ll answer your question. I’m the dude that sold out the Staples Center fighting another YouTuber.” [Mayweather shakes head unimpressed]
“What I want to do with you is create the biggest f****** fight the world has ever seen.”
FM: “Without you I can do that.
LP: “Yeah, I don’t think so.”
FM: “So you already know, you don’t… this ain’t what you do. You play boxing. I fight for real, you know that.”
LP: “So show me. You don’t need to know who I am, but I know this would be one of the biggest fights in the history of the internet. Ever. There is no bigger headline.”
