FLOYD MAYWEATHER is in contract talks to fight Jake Paul – and is fuming with the YouTuber after he sent a “disrespectful” private message to his girlfriend, a source has claimed.
Jake allegedly sent a private message to Floyd’s on-off girlfriend, British stripper Anna Monroe.
Anna, 22, reportedly ditched Floyd, 44, in July after he was pictured with his arm around ex Gallienne Nabila in New York, back in July – although the couple are back together, according to the source.
The source said Money was fuming when he read the message from Jake to Anna – in which he allegedly told the blonde she needed a “real man” and that Floyd was scared of him after fighting his brother Logan.
Mayweather fought Jake’s older brother Logan Paul in June but was unable to knock the 26-year-old out meaning the exhibition ended without an official winner.
There have been rumours about Mayweather fighting Jake ever since, and this week Jake claimed he had texted the champ asking for a “real pro fight”.
A source told SE: “Floyd has been telling pals he’s had enough of Jake Paul.
“He thinks he’s destroying the sport of boxing by being disrespectful about great boxers and saying he wants to be world champion.

“Then when he saw Jake had private messaged Anna – that was the final straw.
“He believes Jake did it to get under his skin and to disrespect him.
“The message was about how Anna needs a real man not a cheat – referring to the pictures of Floyd and his ex.
“And he apparently told her that Floyd was scared of him after fighting his brother Paul and how he would destroy him.
“Jake was clearly doing in it to get in Floyd’s head but Floyd isn’t letting it go.
“Floyd wants to get the fight sorted now, he’s in training and in talks over contracts. He knows the only way to shut Jake up is in the ring.”
