Jake Paul has ‘high chance’ of Mayweather fight after brother Logan’s bout

Jake Paul has a ‘major’ chance of fighting Floyd Mayweather after he takes on his brother Logan Paul.

The fifteen time world title winner, who retired with an unbeaten professional record, has agreed to a second exhibition fight after beating Tenshin Nasukawa in 2018.

Although the YouTube sensation has a major height and weight advantage, he is expected to lose to Mayweather thanks to his speed, skill and experience.

Should that be the outcome, the 43-year-old could then take on Logan’s younger sibling Jake, who has won both of his professional bouts against AnEsonGib and more recently Nate Robinson.

According to Jake’s coach J’Leon Love, who is a long-time friend of Mayweather, believes that there is a high chance that Mayweather will opt to take on Jake after Logan.

In a chat with the Sun, he said: "With Jake, it's a major possibility, a high chance.

“I thought about it and then left it alone but obviously Floyd and Jake are both in it to get the best out of it.

"Floyd is the pinnacle of it, so could it happen? Floyd is a businessman, so is Jake Paul, just as well as Logan, so if it makes money it makes sense.”

Love then added that Logan has no chance of beating Mayweather, which matches what the five weight world champion said of his foe before the fight was confirmed.

He said in November: "These YouTube girls better find some Barbie dolls to play with cause I’m not the one for the kid games.

“Three years ago a fighter from the UFC said my name and I had to put a muzzle on that b****. Logan Paul can get the same treatment before I go conquer Japan again.”

After Paul had said: “If I caught him. If I caught Floyd with one punch, one punch.

“I would snap the **** in half. You know me, I am eight inches taller. I am 40 lbs heavier.”

His brother Jake then warned Logan by saying: "I don't know.

"Who knows if it's actually going to happen? I don't think anyone really knows."
