Logan Paul will be fined $100,000 for every pound he weighs in over the 190lb limit for his fight with boxing legend Floyd Mayweather.

The YouTube sensation squares off against the pound-for-pound great at Miami's Hard Rock Stadium this weekend and will weigh in with a 30lb discrepency, Mayweather is expected to tip the scales to 160lbs which is a career-high, though undercard fighter Badou Jack recently claimed the sporting legend isn't weighing much more than 150lbs.

Paul has since revealed that he will be hit in the pocket if he comes in heavier than his limit despite the bout coming under exhibition rules which allows a massive difference in weight.

A recent video posted by Tik Tok star Tayler Holder with the caption 'have to weigh in at 190lbs' shows Paul admitting to the rule by stepping on the scales and saying "for every pound I'm overweight it's a $100,000 fine."

However, Paul still guarantees there will be a 'war' between himself and Mayweather.

How much did Logan Paul weigh the last time he boxed?

With over 23m subscribers on YouTube, it is not known what weight Paul weighs at the moment, but he will have to be almost 10lbs lighter than his previous fight against KSI in November 2019 which he lost via a split decision in Los Angeles. 

On that fight week, Paul stepped onto the scales for a reading of 199.4lbs, just under the agreed cruiserweight limit of 200lbs. That weight at the weekend would set him back close to a cool million.

Will being bigger than Mayweather help Logan Paul?

Despite promising to 'decapitate' Mayweather, many fans and experts believe this is a bold prediction from Paul considering how he performed in his last fight.

The Ohio native boasts a 0-1 record following his loss to KSI, while Mayweather is 50-0 with victories over boxing legends such as Oscar de la Hoya, Manny Pacquiao and Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez.

If Paul can indeed over come the huge technqiue gap between himself and Mayweather, his victory would be one of the greatest sporting upsets of all time. 

Is Jake Paul next if Mayweather wins?

Of course, the likely scenario is a Mayweather win. And judging by his run-ins with Logan's brother Jake including the infamous "Gotcha Hat" farce, that could be next.

First, however, Jake himself needs to get past MMA fighter Tyson Woodley, who this week was confirmed as his next opponent for Aug. 28.
