That said, ‘The Problem Child’ recently went against arch-nemesis Floyd Mayweather in his latest tweet. In this statement, Paul hit out at Mayweather’s reading ability out of the blue.

“I know there’s a lot of announcements and stuff going on today but Floyd Mayweather still can’t read this tweet,” he said.

Jake Paul isn’t the first biggie to have lashed out at Mayweather. Back in 2017, UFC’s biggest superstar, Conor McGregor lashed out at ‘TBE’ in a similar way, leaving him with a bland face.

Jake Paul is a mammoth sensation in combat sports these days. And he’s figured out the formula to spread his wings in the fight fraternity, i.e. by going after hotshots of the sport. Ever since his emphatic win over Nate Robinson, ‘The Problem Child’ broke into the limelight by calling out biggies like McGregor and more for a fight.

Furthermore, he even entered a brawl with Floyd Mayweather last year and this incident caught everyone’s eye subsequently.

Since then, ‘Pretty Boy’ too is on Paul‘s hit list and the above tweet is just an example of the same.

Will Jake Paul crack a fight with Floyd Mayweather?

Regardless of his verbal assault on the boxing legend, Jake Paul seems far from bagging a fight with him. After their brawl, it was expected that the two men will square off.

But Mayweather didn’t fight since then and now he’s in the news to face Money Kicks, a 20-year-old YouTuber.
