Jake Paul is not a fan of Floyd Mayweather’s latest choice of opponent inside the boxing ring.
Jake Paul Blasts Floyd Mayweather
It was recently announced that Mayweather will return for yet another exhibition boxing bout against YouTube star Deji.
The fight will take place in Dubai this November. Jake Paul, a YouTube star-turned-boxer who has been making quite the name for himself in the boxing community, took to Twitter to post a video, reacting to the news.
Paul said Mayweather continues to tarnish his legacy by selecting weak opponents that Mayweather himself isn’t even familiar with.
He instead challenged Mayweather to fight him, agreeing to meet halfway in between their own weights. Paul is desperate to hand Mayweather his first loss of his career.
“Alright ladies and gentlemen, picture this, it’s 2022, Floyd Mayweather is ruining his legacy fighting no name guys, wasting his fans’ money, wasting his fans’ time.
“He doesn’t even know the names of the guys he’s fighting – and then he chooses to fight Comedy Shorts Gamer, influencer, to make some money to pay his tax bills.
“Floyd Mayweather, telling Jake Paul that he will only fight Jake Paul if he comes down to his weight. 140 pounds or something. I can’t believe what’s going on in the world. I can’t believe this is real.
“Floyd, I will fight you, and you know that’s one of the biggest fights to make in boxing. I weigh 175, you weigh 165, we can get that done. Make a couple hundred million dollars, but what will your excuse be?
“You didn’t care what my brother weighed. So why do you care what I weigh? Oh, cause you know. You know what’s going to happen. I want to say I got your 0, I don’t want to just say I got your hat. I got your 0.
“But You’re going to find a way to dance around this. You said, ‘Once he fights a professional fighter he’s going to get destroyed or it’ll be bad for him. Why not let that be you? The best ever, there’s only one Mayweather.
“But he’s scared to fight Jake Paul. It’s 2022, I can’t believe what the f*ck is going on guys.”

While Mayweather is slated for a November return to the ring, Paul also has a date set as well.
Paul will face his toughest test yet on October 29, when he fights UFC legend Anderson Silva on pay-per-view (PPV). Should both Mayweather and Paul emerge victorious, perhaps they will be gearing up for what would be the biggest boxing fight of the year.
