JAKE PAUL expects to fight “washed up” Floyd Mayweather once the boxing legend “runs out of money” – but warned he calls the shots.

Paul revealed there has been talks between the opposing camps but the weight difference has become a sticking point.

The YouTuber-turned prizefighting star has accused Mayweather, who he clashed with in May, of trying to suck him down in size.

But he anticipates a deal to be agreed in 12 months time, predicting “Money” Mayweather will come calling while out of cash.

Paul told SunSport: “He’s interested if I would drop a bunch of weight. 

“He wants me to cut to a weight that I wouldn’t actually be able to cut to. So I think he is sort of hiding behind that excuse.

“But you know Floyd, he’s going to spend all of his money or strippers and Lamborghinis and s*** like that.

“Not pay his taxes and then around this time next year, he’s going to be like, ‘Who can I fight for $20million, $30million? Alright, maybe I’ll fight Jake’. 

“So when he runs out of money, I bet you the phones will start ringing.” 

Mayweather, 45, officially retired in 2017 after beating UFC icon Conor McGregor, 33, in ten round of their Las Vegas crossover fight.

But the unbeaten American continues to collect cheques in the form of exhibition bouts.

His next comes against former sparring partner Don Moore, 42, held on top of a hotel HELIPAD in Dubai, 700ft above sea level.

But his last was against Paul’s older brother Logan, 27, last June which went the full eight-round distance and ended without a winner.

Mayweather was then accused of not paying the social media and podcasting sensation his full fight purse.

The exhibition was organised by Mayweather Promotions and boxing mogul Al Haymon.

But Logan alleges he is still in the process of chasing up the remainder of his cut.

To avoid a repeat fiasco, Paul insisted any fight with Mayweather would have to be on his terms.

And the 5-0 boxer, who is promoting Katie Taylor vs Amanda Serrano, amazingly claimed to be the A-side over “The Best Ever”.

Paul said: “The difference is, my brother did that as part of Floyd’s promotion.

“Me, I would do it under Most Valuable Promotions, I’m in charge of the money. I’m in charge of the platform, so that’s the way it works. 

“I’d be the A-side too, what is Floyd bringing to the table?

“Yeah, he’s got X,Y and Z’s known in boxing, but you’re washed up bro, sorry, I’m A-side. 

“And especially because you don’t have money, you’re not bringing money to the table.

“So it’s my rules, my decisions, my thoughts, my gameplan, let’s make the fight happen.”

Paul most recently knocked out Tyron Woodley, 40, in December, having previously beaten the ex-UFC champion on points.

It added to KOs over gamer ‘AnEsonGib’, ex-NBA player Nate Robinson, 37, and retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, 37.

Paul has since announced he will return in August with Anderson Silva, 47, and Mike Tyson, 55, front runners as his opponents.

And he is back in training camp having started well ahead of schedule.

Paul revealed: “I seem to not be able to stay out of the gym. I’m sort of always working out.
