As Jake Paul keeps getting ready for his upcoming October boxing match against Anderson Silva, Floyd Mayweather is getting ready for a possible fight between them. This beed started when the boxing legend was promoting his own fight against the oldest of the Paul brothers, Logan.
During media day ahead of that fight, Jake Paul played a prank on Mayweather and nearly got himself killed by the pro boxer’s security detail. Since then, Floyd has actively avoided both brothers and even got into legal trouble due to a massive debt. Today, the legendary boxer spoke about a possible boxing match against Jake Paul and he also talked about a hypothetical fight between the youngest of the Paul brothers and Canelo Alvarez.
Many times in the past, Jake has often repeated that his ultimate goal is to someday get a chance to fight Canelo in a pro boxing match. So far, he’s escalated to a place where he can now fight a true striker such as Anderson Silva. This one will be truly complicated for him to navigate but winning could place him in a very different spot.
Floyd Mayweather recently spoke to TMZ Sports about Jame Paul, even throwing a challenge on the table. Canelo alvaarez has never taken Jake Paul seriously but a scenario might lead up to a possible fight between these two. Should Jake win against Silva and Floyd gets to fight him, Canelo could finally look his way and give the Youtuber a chance.
What did Floyd Mayweather say?
Here’s what Floyd told TMZ Sports: “Jake Paul, as of right now, for what he’s doing, it’s good for what he’s doing. But once he fights a real actual fighter, it’s gon’ be bad. But one thing I like about him, he’s selling it. He’s making good money. He’s entertaining. I like it. He’ll get f***ed up by Canelo. There is no way. He’ll get demolished. For what he’s doing, as long as they keep getting YouTubers and keep putting him in there with MMA guys that’s kind of over the hill, he’s going continue to shine.
“So, I’m proud of him. I’m not really upset. I think [Jake] was doing a sitdown on a podcast one time, and he talked about [a fight with me]. He said, ‘I don’t want to do an exhibition against Floyd Mayweather.’ He said, ‘I’m only doing real fights.’ And of course, I can’t get high up in weight, but I’ll fight him in a real fight at the weight that I’m at.”
