Jake Paul predicts Floyd Mayweather will 'severely underestimate' Logan and warns his brother carries 'knockout power'

JAKE PAUL predicts Floyd Mayweather will 'severely underestimate' Logan and warned his brother carries 'knockout power'.

YouTuber Logan faces Mayweather in an exhibition bout on June 6 in Miami, in what many would consider mission impossible.


But not Jake, who has trained and sparred his older brother during his own novice boxing career.

The internet sensation, who is 3-0, was initially critical of the pay-per-view spectacle and blasted that it was 'bad for the sport'.

But he has now changed his tune, believing boxing will benefit from Logan's adoring fans who are sure to tune in.

And he even backed the unprecedented underdog to use his FOUR STONE and six inch height advantage against an unassuming Mayweather.

Jake 24, told SunSport: "I think it's great, I think it brings more eyeballs to the sport of boxing. People forget that boxing is entertainment.

"All sports are designed for entertainment even dating back to the Roman Empire, they had Olympics sports for entertainment.

"This is entertaining and I think that Floyd will again severely underestimate my brother, and there's a size advantage, my brother's fast and has knockout power.

"I'm not saying he's going to beat Floyd, I'm not going to say he's going to lose against Floyd, but I do think we're going to see a good fight."

Logan, 26, has it all to do against Mayweather, 44, famously never beaten having retired 50-0.

The social media star has only boxed twice before, both against online rival KSI, 27.

They first drew in a white collar bout in 2018, before turning pro a year later, which Logan lost by split-decision.

Mayweather retired officially in 2017 after stopping ex-UFC champion Conor McGregor, 32, in ten rounds.

But he returned a year later, wiping out featherweight kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in two minutes in Japan.

Projecting a guaranteed £72million payday to face Logan, Mayweather admitted it was a no-brainer to face Logan.

And at the press conference, he even claimed he would fight Jake on the SAME NIGHT, and called for paperwork to be drawn up to make it happen.


Soon after, all hell broke loose as Jake stole Mayweather's hat, sparking a mass brawl with Logan involved in the ugly scenes.

Speaking just days before, the American – living up to his nickname 'The Problem Child' – opened the door to fighting Mayweather after Logan.

But he demanded it be a professional contest with their unbeaten records on the line.

Jake told us: "I don't want to do exhibitions and I think that's the difference between Floyd and I and even my brother and I.

"I want legitimate pro fights that are sanctioned, I want to build my pro record.

"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***."
