In a chat with Fred Talks Fighting on YouTube, the trainer commented on a potential Paul vs Paul bout. He said, “I don’t necessarily know who would win. Um… I mean, don’t get me wrong, as of right now, you would lean toward Jake, because Jake got wins, Logan has no wins.”

This comment showed that he rates the younger brother’s skills higher than his older brother’s. It all but confirmed his opinion on Logan Paul facing Floyd Mayweather. However, this is not the first time Jeff Mayweather has given Jake Paul credit. He even picked him to beat Askren in their bout.
