JAKE PAUL EXPLAINS WHY HE DOESN’T THINK FLOYD MAYWEATHER FIGHT WILL HAPPEN
'GOT YOUR HAT!'
Jake Paul is currently gearing up for his August 29 bout with Tyron Woodley but his beef with Floyd Mayweather is still fresh in everyone’s minds.
However the ‘Problem Child’ isn’t sure that a bout with the 50-0 champ will actually happen.
“Jake Paul talked about me and him fighting in a real fight,” Mayweather said in a June interview with Rob Moore.

If it’s a real fight, then I’ll go down to my real fighting weight class, which is 147 pounds or 154 pounds. If Jake Paul can come down to 154 pounds, then we can see his skills.
It’s because of this statement that Jake Paul isn’t too certain he’ll ever meet Mayweather in the ring.
- JAKE PAUL
He wants me to cut down to 147 lbs, and then he’ll fight me. So, before he fought my brother, we were ‘fake fighters.’ And now, he will only fight Jake Paul if I cut to 147 lbs, which is physically impossible for me to cut that much.
For now, it looks like this potential bout will remain a “what-if” for boxing fans the world over.
