• Logan Paul is set to face Floyd Mayweather in 2021
  • Paul earned $10 million from Youtube in 2019
  • Logan Paul is the older brother of Jake Paul

Logan Paul, Floyd Mayweather’s next opponent, has a net worth of around $19 million. He is one of Youtube’s highest paid stars in recent years.

Paul earned $10 million in 2019, but he actually earned more in 2018 and even ranked 10th on the list of highest paid Youtubers in that year. His brother, Jake Paul, is also a Youtube star in his own right and even earned $21.5 million in 2018, placing him at 2nd place that year, per Business Insider.

However, the Paul brothers fell off the rankings in 2019 as the most successful vloggers were making kid-friendly content. The king of Youtube earnings that year went to 8-year-old Ryan Kaji who raked in a whopping $26 million.

Logan Paul started making content on other platforms such as Vine before shifting to Youtube. The Paul brothers are uploading content on a daily basis, which explains their massive following. On Vine, the 25-year-old had 4 million followers, prompting brands such as Pepsi, Virgin Mobile and HBO to tap him to create videos for them, an article from Celebrity Net Worth revealed.

The Westlake, Ohio native’s career as a Youtuber has been met with backlash before. He featured a dead body at the controversial suicide forest in Japan in one of his videos. As a consequence, Youtube removed his channel from its featured list.

On the personal side, the former Westlake High School football team star lives in a mansion in Encino, Los Angeles that he acquired for $6.6 million.

Jake Paul recently knocked out former NBA player Nate Robinson in an exhibition match. Following the steps of his younger brother, Logan has been lined up to face retired undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather in an exhibition match scheduled in February 2021.

Mayweather has retired from professional boxing, but the lure of getting massive income in a short period of time and taking lesser damage from opponents proves these exhibition matches are a good business move on his part. According to ESPN, in 2018, Mayweather defeated Japanese MMA star Tenshin Nasukawa in a boxing exhibition. The fight earned him $9 million in just over two minutes of action.

This is not the first time Logan Paul was featured in a boxing match. He fought fellow Youtuber KSI last year. The bout ended with KSI winning via split decision. The highly anticipated match between Mayweather and Paul are expected to bring in millions of revenues for both fighters due to pay-per-view buys and sponsorships.
