In conversation, Majlak asked Paul about him recently trending on social media. Paul exclaimed that it might be because of Mayweather‘s recent showdown against ‘Dangerous’ Don Moore. He said, “You know why? This is actually funny because Floyd Mayweather just fought some random guy. No, it’s semi-random. Used to be his sparring partner. He whooped his a**.”

Moreover, Paul also added, “And so like again just, it’s just like I always look back and I’m like damn he couldn’t even beat up a YouTuber.”

However, the trio later deduced the actual reason why Paul has been trending on social media. The YouTuber, TommyInnit, had recently grown his beard, bearing a stark similarity to Paul. This apparently caused a furor online, leading to them trending on the charts.
