The play surrounding Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s bout with Logan Paul following month continues following the boxing superstar filed a $122.6 million suit against the entertainment company for failing to deliver the fight to Dubai, according to a report.
Mayweather Promotions is alleging in a lawsuit acquired by TMZ Sports this week that PAC Entertainment Worldwide failed to make good in their pitch that they could host the fight in Dubai, citing their"numerous business contacts" and"financial wherewithal and capacity to sponsor a battle of this magnitude."
According to the documents, the company"presented fiscal projections estimating the fight could generate guaranteed amounts for each player, plus result in the promoters earning more than $100 million in earnings after covering all purses and expenses."
Mayweather Promotions claimed they signed a deal with a guaranteed amount of $110 million but as soon as the initial payment of $30 million was expected in March, PAC didn't deliver.
Mayweather's camp managed to back out and finally get a deal with Fanmio Boxing for its June 6 exhibition match that will take place in the Hardrock Stadium in Miami.
Mayweather, who's 50-0 in his professional career and four years past took on combined martial arts champ Conor McGregor, will square off from YouTube star Logan Paul.
Paul told TMZ Sports on Monday he and his brother had been adding extra safety after Mayweather supposedly threatened to"kill" them during their pre-fight press conference following a fight broke out. Logan Paul stated he was not taking any chances even if the danger was empty.
