Jake Paul has been in the news a lot lately, and it seems like he’s making headlines for all the wrong reasons. This time it was Floyd Mayweather who took exception to one of his recent statements.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. is the target of another outlandish statement from Jake Paul. This time, Jake Paul has called out the boxer for not being able to defend himself.

Jake Paul is a master of the “how weird can we get?” game. More bizarre remarks come out of the YouTuber’s lips as he continues to believe he’s a boxer. On Aug. 29, Paul will face UFC champion Tyron Woodley in yet another meaningless boxing battle. The excitement is created with wild rhetoric, like it does with every battle. With his remark about Floyd Mayweather, Paul went a bit too far in the hype area.

Paul wants to be like Floyd Mayweather. Paul, who has been a YouTuber for a long time, now considers himself a boxer. He was already talking about fighting former UFC champion Conor McGregor before stepping into the ring with former NBA star Nate Robinson.

“The beauty of this is that I’m already one of the greatest pay-per-view sellers in boxing after two bouts, and Conor McGregor is also on that list, so if it makes sense for us to get together and have a fight, it’ll sell huge amounts of pay-per-view,” Paul told The Daily Beast in November. 

He not only thought it was OK for a YouTuber to fight McGregor, but he also went after Mayweather. “These YouTube ladies better find some Barbie dolls to play with because I’m not the one for child games,” Mayweather, who is 50-0 in his professional boxing career, said of the online stars who wanted to get in the ring.

“At the end of the day, he’s only around 5-foot-4, so he’s the small child here, and he clearly just wants attention,” Paul said. “He’s in his fifties,” says the narrator. He ought to be retired.”

If stating Mayweather “only wants attention” wasn’t enough for the attention-starved Paul, he came up with another strange remark about the pro boxer. On Instagram, Paul created a hit list of 13 individuals he’d want to fight in a boxing bout. He’s already defeated three of them “fighters.”

Woodley, his next opponent, is on the list, as are McGregor, Kamaru Usman, Canelo Alvarez, and Logan Paul, who “fought” Mayweather in an exhibition fight. McGregor’s name was conspicuously missing from the hit list, and he was questioned about it.

Paul told USA TODAY Sports, “That’s a fair question.” “I believe he understood while he was battling my brother that we weren’t to be trifled with. He claimed he’d fight me only if I dropped to 154 pounds, which is physically impossible. And he doesn’t want that smoke,” says the narrator. 

He then went off on a tangent with his remarks.

“He requires more of me than I require of him.”

 He said, “I’m not attempting to perform any exhibitions.” “I’m down for a genuine pro bout at a legitimate weight if he wants to do it. But I don’t want to get into a money battle with an elderly gentleman.” 

Paul isn’t required by Mayweather. Paul isn’t needed in the boxing scene. Mayweather is 50-0 as a boxer, has plenty of cash, and seems to be enjoying his retirement.

Tyron Woodley, according to Jorge Masvidal of the UFC, will knock out Paul.

UFC star Jorge Masvidal discussed the impending bout between Paul and Woodley on a recent edition of The MMA Hour with presenter Ariel Helwani. Masvidal thinks Paul will suffer as a result.

“Not to disrespect Jake,” Masvidal added, “but you’ve been watching MMA for a minute.” “Woodley has the ability to throw those hands. Ben Askren was never able to do it. So it’s as if you’ve got a man who can fight if it’s with fists. Woodley could have earned a living grappling, and he did. He was a decent enough athlete, and he was good enough of an athlete to earn his money by knocking people out with his fists.

“So I don’t believe – I know Jake’s never been in there with a guy who’s explosive, a terrific athlete, and has a lot of experience over him. So, f—ing crazy if Jake wins. My hat is off to him; I was incorrect, and I have no idea what I’m talking about when it comes to fighting. Woodley, on the other hand, is almost certain to knock him out.”

Maybe he’ll make Paul see reason as well.
