“It’s honestly bull—-,” Paul said to TMZ outside Saddle Ranch on Thursday. “Like, having people who aren’t a professional promotional company control where the money goes, we made that mistake … It’s Floyd Mayweather. Before we fought him, we were kind of willing to do whatever. Now after the fact, we’re kind of shooting ourselves in the foot because he’s a fu—ing s—bag.”

Ahead of the fight, Mayweather’s group — Mayweather Promotions — sued Paul for $120 million claiming that initial discussions of the fight slated the event to take place in Dubai, and we all know the event later took place in Miami.
