Floyd Mayweather could be set for a mouth-watering rematch with Logan Paul despite their ongoing spat over money.
The boxing legend went toe-to-toe with Paul in an eight-round exhibition bout last year, which the YouTube star impressively managed to navigate without being knocked out, and they've been trading insults ever since with Paul claiming he's yet to receive his chunk of the £15million fight purse.
Speaking at a press conference to announce his latest exhibition in Japan, Mayweather said a member of Paul's team had reached out to him about a potential rematch – leaving the undefeated former world champion unimpressed.
"Someone from his team who actually put the exhibition on who I was working with reached out and said that Logan Paul wanted to do another exhibition and this is the same guy that said he didn't get paid," Mayweather scoffed.
"You guys have to watch these guys that are clout-chasing by using the Floyd Mayweather name."
Earlier this month, Paul posted a message on social media on the one-year anniversary of his fight with Mayweather, saying: "One year ago today, I fought Moyd Fayweather. He’s hard to hit, but even harder to collect money from. Who should I fight next?"

Despite being retired, the already filthy-rich Mayweather has been raking it recently, earning himself an estimated £140 million from his last two exhibition bouts – against Paul a year ago and against former sparring partner Don Moore in May.
Paul claims he was asked to be Mayweather's opponent for last month's bout but turned it down, telling the 45-year-old to "go f*** himself".
"They asked me if I wanted to fight Floyd Mayweather again, Jeff did… one of Floyd's guys," Paul told Maverick Club. "On top of that Burj Al Arab with that tennis court in February.
"I told him to f*** himself, first of all you have to pay me the rest of the money that you owe me. Second of all go f*** yourself, but what if I give it to Jake [Paul]?"
