Mayweather continued … “There is no way. He’ll get demolished. For what he’s doing, as long as they keep getting YouTubers and keep putting him in there with MMA guys that’s kind of over the hill, he’s going continue to shine. So, I’m proud of him. I’m not really upset.”
Of course, Floyd isn’t exactly best buds with Canelo or Jake. Mayweather comfortably beat Alvarez in 2013 … the first loss of the star boxer’s career (it was Saul’s 44th fight).
In fact, Floyd-Jake is a fight fans have clamored for since the incident in South Florida. The issue is there’s a large size difference between the men. 5’8″ Mayweather spent most of his career fighting around 150 lbs. Paul is 6’1″ and fights around 185 lbs.
But, Floyd says he doesn’t care about the weight difference … and would fight Jake, despite the sizeable difference in physical stature.
“I think [Jake] was doing a sitdown on a podcast one time, and he talked about [a fight with me],” Floyd said. “He said, ‘I don’t want to do an exhibition against Floyd Mayweather.’ He said, ‘I’m only doing real fights.’ And of course, I can’t get high up in weight, but I’ll fight him in a real fight at the weight that I’m at.”
