Jake Paul has branded his brother Logan’s upcoming fight with Floyd Mayweather as ‘bad’ for boxing.
The elder Paul brother will take on the undefeated American, who has a record of 50-0, on 20 February in an exhibition boxing match.
Jake, who recently knocked-out former NBA player Nate Robinson in two rounds, does not have high hopes for his sibling.
YouTube star Logan is yet to win a fight, having drawn against KSI before losing a rematch by a split decision to the Brit.
And Jake, fresh from his defeat of Robinson, has questioned why his brother is stepping into the ring with one of boxing’s best ever fighters.
“No, I agree,” he said to TMZ Sports when asked how Logan could beat Mayweather when Philippine fighter and fellow boxing great Manny Pacquiao did not.
“My brother’s f*****. It’s bad for the sport. I think it’s just for clout.”
Mayweather retired from professional boxing in 2015 after defeating Andre Berto by unanimous decision, before returning for a one-off exhibition match with Conor McGregor which he won by technical knock-out.
In fact, the American, who won a bronze medal at the 1996 Olympic Games as well as 15 major titles, has never been defeated since becoming a professional boxer 24 years ago.
And his bout with Logan has provoked a mixed reaction from boxing fans and pundits, with many expecting Mayweather to easily win.
That includes Logan’s own brother, who brought up his so far winless record in the ring, while highlighting his own success.
“My brother’s a fake fighter, I’m the real fighter. He’s 0-1-1, I’m 3-0,” Jake said.
“I wish him the best of luck. I just like… don’t get in there with a guy who’s never even been knocked out. He’s been knocked down once and it was by accident.”
