Jake Paul says he’s not worried about ‘old man’ Floyd Mayweather

Jake Paul has said that he is not worried about future opponent Tyron Woodley being coached by Floyd Mayweather, referring to the unbeaten star as an “old man”.

Paul is set to take on UFC star Woodley in a professional boxing bout on August 28.

The YouTuber has taken part in three professional fights so far, with his most notable bout coming against another former UFC fighter, Ben Askren, back in April.

Paul knocked Askren out within one round, with Woodley representing his next test.

The fight will be Woodley’s first professional boxing bout. He is a former UFC Welterweight Champion, but has lost his last four fights with the company.

The most recent of those came against Vicente Luque back in March, which he lost via a first round submission.

He has also been defeated by Colby Covington and Gilbert Burns over the last 12 months.

Back in 2019, he dropped the welterweight title to Kamaru Usman, who has since defended the belt on four separate occasions.

Woodley has recently enlisted the help of Mayweather in preparation for his upcoming bout against Paul.

However, Paul seemingly isn’t too worried.

Paul’s comments on Mayweather after previous exchange

He said: “How is Floyd Mayweather (who couldn’t even get in shape or come up with a strategy enough to beat my brother) gonna teach another old man how to beat me?”

He then added a series of photos of the pair on Twitter, captioning one with “shiver me timbers“.

Mayweather took on Paul’s brother Logan in an exhibition match last month.

In a non-scored bout, Mayweather dominated his inexperienced opponent over the eight rounds, with Paul managing to get through to the final bell.

During a promotional event prior to the fight, a brawl broke out between Mayweather and Jake Paul, after the latter stole the former’s hat.

Jake Paul then claimed: “One of Floyd’s 30 bodyguards got a clean shot on me in the eye.”
