Jake Paul has challenged Floyd Mayweather for a “real fight” after ‘Money’ allegedly tried to ‘jump’ himJake Paul has challenged Floyd Mayweather to an official boxing match after the former Disney channel star alleged that Mayweather and his entourage tried to ‘jump’ him in Miami last night.
Following the conclusion of the NBA game between the Miami Heat and the Cleveland Cavaliers, Paul and Mayweather were pictured getting into it outside the stadium. In a video first shared by TMZ Sports, ‘The Problem Child’ can be seen standing with a single security guard as he is antagonized by Mayweather’s entourage.
Jake Paul was then pictured leaving the scene after the pair exchanged words, which fans believe was the continuation of a beef that started when Paul’s brother Logan faced Mayweather back in 2021.
Now, following their altercation, Jake Paul has taken to Twitter to call out the former boxing world champion. According to the 26-year-old, Mayweather has regularly contacted his team to set up an exhibition bout, but Paul only wants to face him in a sanctioned boxing match:
“Floyd will not see me 1 on 1 in a real fight. That’s a fact. His team has hit my team numerous times to do one of his ‘exhibitions’. Now he ambushes me. Come see me in the ring, real fight, no exhibition robbing fans bullsh*t.”
Jake Paul reflects on loss to Tommy Fury, blames “wet dream” for his performance
Last month, Jake Paul suffered the first loss of his professional boxing career (6-1) after narrowly losing out to rival Tommy Fury.
The pair headlined the card on February 26 in Saudi Arabia, which saw the two competitors go the distance in their eight-round clash. ‘TNT’ was given the nod via split decision as two of the judges scored the bout 76-73 in his favor, while the other judged it 75-74 for Paul.
Following his loss to Fury, ‘The Problem Child’ recently appeared on the IMPAULSIVE podcast, hosted by his brother Logan. During the show, Paul claimed that he didn’t feel himself on the day of the fight and blamed the testosterone build-up as the reason:
“I f*cked myself, literally… I literally woke up in a panic… You have two weeks of testosterone built up, and so the reason a wet dream happens is because your body needs to release that energy. Knows in your mind that this is not good… Makes your legs weak… Because the sperm is stored in your legs…”
