Floyd Mayweather Camps Sues Company For $120 Million
Floyd Mayweather and his team are not happy about the location for Mayweather's June 6 Boxing exhibition match with Logan Paul.
The bout, set to go down in Miami, Florida was reportedly first agreed to happen in Dubai before the event organizers 'dropped the ball' according to Mayweather's camp, which has resulted in a $120 million lawsuit.
"Mayweather Promotions claims PAC claimed to have "numerous business contacts in Dubai" and "had the financial wherewithal and capability to host a fight of this magnitude."
Most importantly, Mayweather Promotions says PAC "presented financial projections estimating the fight could generate guaranteed amounts for each participant, plus result in the promoters earning more than $100 million in profits after covering all purses and expenses."
Mayweather Promotions admits it was impressed with the pitch and claims it ultimately signed a deal requiring PAC to pay a minimum guaranteed amount of $110 MILLION on a 'prescribed payment schedule.'
Mayweather Promotions claims the 1st payment of $30 million was due on March 25, 2021 -- but the money never came.
Mayweather Promotions claims the missed payment triggered a clause allowing MP to terminate the deal while still requiring PAC to fork up the full $110 million.
In the suit, Mayweather Promotions claims they were left scrambling to make new fight plans -- and ultimately worked out a deal to move the fight to Miami on June 6."
