Fifteen times world champion Floyd Mayweather may be having an exhibition fight against YouTuber Logan Paul, but Jake is not going to be on the same boat.

After beating UFC star Conor McGregor back in August 2017, Mayweather bid adieu to his more than two decades spanning undefeated professional boxing career, retiring with an impeccable 50-0 record.

Jake Paul landed knockout win against against multi-promotion MMA champion Ben Askren at the Mercedes Benz Stadium on 17th April, marking his third professional victory.

Now, the 24-year-old has expressed his desire to face Mayweather after his sibling does, but unlike Logan, who has been doing exhibition fights so far, Jake wants this to be an all-out professional fight, with Mayweather’s undefeated record on the line.

“I don’t want to do exhibitions and I think that’s the difference between Floyd and I and even my brother and I,” Jake said in a recent interview with The Sun, “I want legitimate pro fights that are sanctioned, I want to build my pro record. I don’t think Floyd would actually fight me outside of an exhibition as he doesn’t want to risk his record.”

“Maybe if we can come to some kind of agreement around that, I’d fight Floyd. But I’m not doing like the circus, exhibition s***,” he added.

Point to be noted, while Jake is 3-0 in his professional boxing career, he has never fought a professional boxer so far. Prior to Askren, Jake defeated fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib in January 2020, followed by a brutal KO of former NBA star Nate Robinson in the undercard of Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr in November last year.
