JAKE PAUL has trolled combat sports legends Floyd Mayweather and Anderson Silva – insisting he’d beat the pair ‘in the same night’.
Ex-boxing and UFC world champions Mayweather and Silva took part in exhibition bouts against Don Moore and Bruno Machado at the Etihad Arena in Abu Dhabi on Saturday night.
Floyd Mayweather put on a clinic in his clash with Don Moore on Saturday night
UFC legend Anderson Silva also looked great in his clash with Bruno Machado
But YouTuber turned boxer Jake Paul wasn’t impressed by either man’s performance
The pair put on clinics in their respective bouts – both of which went the distance – but neither man impressed YouTuber turned boxer Paul.
Shortly after the event, Paul tweeted: “I would beat Floyd and Anderson in the same night.”
Fight fans were quick to comment on Paul’s bold claim, with one saying: “You’re not touching Anderson buddy. Even at his age.”
Another said: “What kind of dope is this kid on?”

And another said: “I don’t think you could beat any average 24yo amateur boxer.”
One chimed in: “I don’t care if Silva was 60, Silva wins this fight. Ez I bet the house on that.”
Another remarked: “Considering one is not a boxer and one is smaller weight class yeah.
“Fight boxers at your weight. Stop the cowardice.”

Prior to making his bold prediction, Paul tweeted a photoshopped picture of himself as a pest control man with a Spider – Silva’s nickname – on the side of his van.
One boxing fan replied to the tweet by saying: “Just fight Tommy [Fury]. Scared to fight a boxer.”
Another said: “You don’t want that smoke, be honest.”
And another said: “You won’t fight him because he’s a legit striker.”
