Jake Paul Vs. Floyd Mayweather? Paul Confident It Takes Place

Jake Paul

Jake Paul is set to meet Anderson Silva this month.

The two will square off on October 29, as the YouTuber-turned-boxer takes on another former UFC champion.

But for Paul, another fight looms large on the horizon.

Paul recently told MMA Fighting that he wants to face Floyd Mayweather. And he believes Mayweather wants it to take place, as well.

“I think he would (fight me) if it was an exhibition for sure,” Paul said. “The thing is I want it to be a real pro bout and take his undefeated record, which I don’t think he’ll risk.

“But I just think that makes the fight three times as big, three times as hyped. That’s what I’m aiming for.”

Since retiring from active fighting, Mayweather has remained, well, active. He has taken several exhibition matches, including one here coming up against Deji Olatunji.

Olatunji’s brother, KSI, was finished by Paul back in 2018.

“I definitely think there’s a fight for us in the future,” Paul said. “Whether it’s exhibition or not, we’ll figure that part out.”
