3-0 as a professional, Jake Paul doesn’t seem intimidated about the idea of facing Floyd Mayweather in a proper fight. Instead, he believes Mayweather wouldn’t put his unbeaten tag on the line anymore. While Jake Paul’s brother, Logan Paul, will face the five-division champion in an exhibition on June 6, he didn’t express any interest in accepting exhibition fights.

‘The Problem Child’, who wants to build his professional resume, appeared open to facing Floyd Mayweather in a pro fight. He connected with the media and addressed the issue.

“I don’t want to do exhibitions and I think that’s the difference between Floyd and I and even my brother. I want legitimate pro fights that are sanctioned, I want to build my pro record,” said Jake Paul.

He added, “I don’t think Floyd would actually fight me outside of an exhibition as he doesn’t want to risk his record. Maybe if we can come to some kind of agreement around that, I’d fight Floyd. But I’m not doing like the circus, exhibition s—.” (H/T:- The Sun)
