Logan Paul is calling out Floyd Mayweather hard for this one. The Youtuber-turned-fighter is ready to take on the legendary boxing champion in court over "a few million" that is allegedly owed to him after their historic fight in the ring last June. So how many millions are we talking about here?

Last summer, the YouTube star stepped into the ring with one of the greatest boxers of all time in an exhibition match at the Hard Rock Stadium Miami, and people went wild over it. Although a little confused, fans from far and wide were hyped about the fight from the moment it was announced, throwing down bets on who's going to take home the W or how last they're going to last in the ring without calling it. Despite Logan Paul coming in hot with fists ready, Floyd Mayweather was just too good, and domination was evident. Sorry, Paul. The match lasted for eight rounds, with three-minute rounds in total, but because it was an exhibition match, no official winner was announced - but a whole lot of cash was involved.

Despite Mayweather stealing the show, he admitted after the fight Paul was a "good guy" and "better than I [he] thought he was," calling the evening "fun." Logan showed equal admiration for his opponent, saying, "Floyd Mayweather, it was an honor... this is one of the greatest moments of my life." So it sounds like the two ended on a good note, no?

With money being the incentive behind the fight, it's clear why Paul is ready to take Mayweather to court, telling TMZ that Mayweather "has not paid me in full" and that he is "short a few mil." Paul is getting irritated with Mayweather about his lack of payment and is ready to move from the boxing ring to the courtroom. The YouTuber has spoken publically in the past about not receiving payment from "Floyd 'Money' Mayweather, as he calls him. "But, instead of shutting up, I make fun of him on social media and let everyone know that he doesn't have any money," Paul noted. He confirmed with TMZ that he's done trying to resolve matters with Floyd's camp, and "we're talking this one to court." The YouTuber continued, "See you in the courtroom. Congrats on going to prison, Floyd." Yikes. Stay tuned...
