Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul finally squared off against each other in an exhibition boxing match on June 6 at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida. With a lot of hype surrounding the match, fans were eagerly excited to see who would come out on top. Jake Paul didn’t throw down with Money, but he did get his hat.
For a lot of fans, the boxing match was full of entertainment as both Paul and Mayweather went the distance in the match, which was something many fans did not expect at all. The match was also panned by many for not being a proper boxing match.
Jake Paul and Mayweather are certainly no strangers to each other. Earlier this year, Mayweather was involved in a confrontation with Jake Paul that saw Paul steal Mayweather’s heat. This led to the boxing legend punching Paul in the face and then threatening to kill him.
While speaking to TMZ Sports, Jake Paul talked about Floyd Mayweather and accused him of trying to stop Paul from becoming more popular than him.
“For sure, you know. I think he (Floyd Mayweather) sees what I’m doing in this sport, and he wants to put an end to it, you know. He’s a very greedy guy. He doesn’t want anyone to be more popular or more acclaimed than him. And so, I think he wants to see me lose. He wants to see this whole train get stopped.”
Jake Paul has to contend with Tyron Woodley on August 29th as he is undoubtedly Paul’s toughest opponent to date. We will have to wait and see how will come out the victor in the end.
