Floyd Mayweatherconfesses he’s pleased with Jake Paul‘s capability to win battles and promote huge occasions … however the 50-0 legend states do not overdo it, ’cause a legitimate fighter would damage The Problem Child.
Floyd signed up with Babcock on the “TMZ Sports” television program (airs weeknights on FS1) previously today … and examined Jake’s influence on the sport and his ability in the ring.
“Jake Paul, as of right now, for what he’s doing, it’s good for what he’s doing,” Floyd informed us. “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.”
Of course, Jake’s simply 25 years of ages and has actually just been training for a couple of years. Still, he’s 5-0 with 4 KOs … and he’s beaten future UFC Hall of Famer Tyron Woodley two times.
Mayweather continued … “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.”
Of course, Floyd isn’t exactly best buds with Canelo or Jake. Mayweather easily beat Alvarez in 2013 … the very first loss of the star fighter’s profession (it was Saul’s 44th battle).
In reality, Floyd-Jake is a battle fans have actually demanded given that the event in South Florida. The problem exists’s a plus size distinction in between the males. 5’8″ Mayweather spent most of his career fighting around 150 lbs. Paul is 6’1″ and battles around 185 pounds.
But, Floyd states he does not appreciate the weight distinction … and would battle Jake, in spite of the significant distinction in physical stature.
“I think [Jake] was doing a sitdown on a podcast one time, and he talked about [a fight with me],” Floyd stated. “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.”
We likewise asked Mayweather about the last battle of the Canelo and Gennady “GGG” Golovkintrilogy … which Money might have missed out on due to the fact that he was flying throughout the world in his personal jet.
