He said: ‘For the build up so far (for the Logan fight) I’ve made upwards of $30 million,’ before admitting he expected to earn ‘Between 50 and a 100 million’ for his bout with Paul. 

Mayweather then added: ‘To me, it’s a win-win but I’m in a no-win because if I knock him out fast in the 1st round, they’re gonna be like ‘Aw man this wasn’t worth it.’ 

‘If I let it go a few rounds and drag it out, they’re gonna be like ‘Aw man, he let a YouTuber hang in it for a few rounds’. But, it is what it is. We’re gonna have some fun Sunday. 

‘Money’, 44, also revealed Paul’s brother Jake will ‘probably’ be next up after fighting Logan

‘After Logan, probably Jake. We don’t know. We will see.’
