Floyd Mayweather is still 'collecting checks' from fights EIGHT years ago as he hits back at Logan Paul's pay row

FLOYD MAYWEATHER claimed he still 'collecting checks' from fights EIGHT years ago – as he hits back at Logan Paul.

The boxing legend officially retired in 2017 after beating UFC superstar Conor McGregor, 33.

But in June last year, Mayweather, 44, returned for an exhibition bout against YouTuber Paul, 26.

The American boasted before and after of the $100million (£75m) payday which he dubbed a 'legalised bank robbery'.

But Paul has since alleged that he was not paid the full amount owed to him and would be launching a legal case.

Mayweather has since responded for the first time and suggested bonuses from the pay-per-view sales have not yet been accounted for.

He said on the Pivot Podcast: “This comes with the territory.To them, that’s real money, and I like the YouTubers.

"The money on the back end though, from pay-per-view, that takes a while. Nothing comes right away.

"I’m still collecting checks from fights seven or eight years ago. They just hate when the table is turned.

"Be happy with the biggest payday you ever got in your life.”

Paul recently told TMZ: "It's honestly bulls*** having people who aren't a professional promotional company control where the money goes.

"It's like we made that mistake, but you know it's Floyd Mayweather, so before we fought him we were kind of willing to do whatever.

"And now after the fact we're kind of shooting ourselves in the foot because he's a f***ing scumbag."

"But now we know that and everyone else who fights Floyd should know that, like don't let him control the money."
