Content creator turned boxer Jake Paul has called out Floyd Mayweather on Twitter, with the Paul brother accusing Mayweather of trying to “jump” him with a group of people.
Following his loss to Tommy Fury, Jake Paul has been extremely active on social media, conducting numerous interviews as well as posting about his desire to have his rematch against Tommy Fury set up as soon as possible.
And while Jake Paul’s eyes seemed set on Tommy, the Problem Child has now called out another boxer online, accusing Floyd Mayweather and his team of ganging up on him. Jake posted a tweet at first, calling out Mayweather by writing, “Floyd if you want to fight one-on-one we can do that but don’t try to hop out of three cars 25 dudes deep tryna to jump me while I’m tryna enjoy my Wednesday night.”
Before long, a full video of the altercation surfaced online through TMZ. In the brief clip, we can see multiple members of Mayweather’s team approaching the younger Paul brother. While one security guard tries to keep the peace, it wasn’t long before Paul ran away from the tense situation.
Given he already has his rematch with Tommy planned as well as his eventual showdown against KSI, it seems unlikely that Jake would already be looking for a third matchup in Mayweather. However, there’s no denying the two have history, given the infamous ‘gotcha hat’ moment ahead of Floyd’s fight with Logan Paul.
One boxer who has responded to Jake’s initial message is KSI, with the British influencer retweeting the post and asking Jake if he “just had another wet dream.”

This comment from KSI is a direct reference to something Jake said during the most recent episode of the IMPAULSIVE podcast wherein he discussed having a wet dream before his match again Tommy Fury.
Jake Paul responds after Floyd Mayweather’s team “ambushes” him
Several hours later, Jake addressed the matter in a tweet, saying that he’s more than willing to meet Mayweather mano-a-mano in the ring.
“Floyd will not see me 1 on 1 in a real fight,” he wrote. “That’s a fact. His team ahs hit my team numerous times to do his ‘exhibitions.’ Now he ambushes me. Come see me in the ring, real fight, no exhibition robbing fans bullsh*t.”
With Paul slated to face off with Tommy Fury this summer, it’s unclear when a possible match with Mayweather would take place – but this latest interaction between Jake and Floyd’s team is certainly drawing attention from fans, either way.
