YouTube sensation Logan Paul seemingly transitioned into the WWE following his boxing stint. Paul made his in-ring debut for the company at WrestleMania in a tag-team match with ‘The Miz’ as his partner. He would even go on to face the latter in a singles match at SummerSlam.
Moreover, it was recently revealed that ‘The Maverick’ will face WWE champion Roman Reigns for the title on November 5th in Saudi Arabia. This will be Paul’s first shot at the championship since he joined the company and expects his wrestling skill to help make the match entertaining. Therefore, many were surprised after it was announced that Paul might be looking to return to boxing.
Boxing analyst Mike Benson recently revealed that the Ohio-based boxer hinted at a return to the squared circle despite challenging for the WWE title in November. He stated that Paul is most likely planning his boxing return in January after his match with Reigns on November 5th.

Moreover, this was even more shocking, as Paul had given up on boxing after accusing Floyd Mayweather of not paying him. The two fought in an exhibition match last year in a bizarre event with no winner. However, the main drama came after the event as Paul revealed that he was not paid his share for the fight.
Has Floyd Mayweather paid Logan Paul for their exhibition bout?
It has been a year since the bout took place and to this day ‘The Maverick’ has claimed he was cheated by ‘Money’. It was reported that Mayweather Jr would earn $65 million, including his shorts sponsorship for $30 million. On the other hand, Paul reportedly earned a guaranteed fee of just $250,000, as well as another $5 million due to his ten percent share of the pay-per-view revenue.

However, Paul has claimed that he did not receive this ten percent share. In a recent interview with TMZ, ‘The Maverick’ stated that he was not paid in full and would now sue Mayweather in court.

“No, he has not paid me in full. That is a fact. Short a few mil. Nah We’re taking this one to court. See you in the courtroom. Congrats on going to prison, Floyd.” he said.
However, it is still not clear whether ‘Money’ paid Paul despite all the accusations from the YouTuber.
