Jake Paul has trashed his brothers upcoming exhibition bout with Floyd Mayweather.
YouTube celebrity Logan Paul is set to square off against one of the greatest boxers ever in Mayweather on February 20. The 25-year-old has fought just once in professional boxing and fell short when doing so against fellow viral superstar KSI.
Younger brother Jake has found more success in the squared circle. After impressing in his lone amateur bout Paul turned professional in 2020 and looked good against low level opposition. In November he picked up a highlight-reel knockout against former NBA player Nate Robinson on the undercard of Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr.
In an interview with TMZ Sports, Jake was critical of his brother for trying to get “clout” by fighting Mayweather, who he has zero chance of beating.
“My brother’s f*cked,” Jake Paul said. “It’s bad for the sport. I think it’s just for clout. You know, my brother is the fake fighter I’m the real fighter. He’s 0-1-1, I’m 3-0. I wish him the best of luck. I just like — don’t get in there with a guy whos’ never even been knocked down. He’s been knocked down once and it was by accident.”
Do you agree with Jake Paul? Is Logan Paul vs. Floyd Mayweather bad for boxing?
