Undefeated boxing sensation Floyd Mayweather Jr. seems content to wrap up the final chapter of his Hall of Fame boxing career with a world tour that consists of re-enacted hot bodies to the delight of casual fight fans.
But if aging Mayweather, 45, is still light years ahead of “YouTubers” like Jake Paul, then why not get in a sanctioned boxing match, much like “Money” did against former UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor in the summer of 2017?
“I think he would [fight me] if it was exposure for sure,” Paul told MMA Fighting. “The thing is, I want it to be a real professional fight and take his undefeated record, which I don’t think he’s going to risk. But I just think it makes the fight three times bigger, three times more publicized. That’s what I’m aiming for. I really think there’s a fight for us in the future. Whether it’s an exhibition or not, we’ll find that part.
Mayweather is no stranger to the Paul family, having packed and shipped Logan Paul in June 2021. Preparing for this event featured Jake with his infamous GOTCHA HAT! moment, leaving the unsuspecting “Money” seething in a fit of rage.
“I retired from the sport, I didn’t let the sport take me away,” Mayweather said last month. “I retired for a reason. I’m here to have fun, have fun, with guys who are going to help me entertain people, but I’m not going to take the punishment to the point where I can barely walk and barely talk.
I guess that tells you what Mayweather thinks of McGregor as a boxer.
