Floyd Mayweather ‘can’t function’ without his luxury lifestyle, said Jake Paul
Jake Paul called out Floyd Mayweather
One involved Jake’s brother Logan, 27, who took the boxing legend the eight-round distance in July 2021.
Mayweather, 45, last weekend knocked out Japanese MMA fighter Mikuru Asakura, 30, in two rounds.
And days later he announced another exhibition with YouTuber Deji, 25, on November 13 in Dubai.
Paul, 25, slammed Mayweather for the cash-grab boxing cameos which he said are only in place to fund his spending habits.
He said: “I think he needs money. I legitimately think he needs money. There is no way that you can keep up that lifestyle.
“Think about this, guys. He kept up the same lifestyle that he had while he was fighting – the cars, the jewellery, the rolling around with thirty people, private jets everywhere, vacations, spending millions of dollars on one watch. He’s a f****** dumbass.
“You can’t keep up that same lifestyle after you’re retired. And I think he realises that and then had to get back in shape and started doing these exhibitions.
“Because he can’t function without that lifestyle, that is who he is. That’s his identity.

“It’s Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather. Floyd ‘Needs Money’ Mayweather.”
Paul wants to fight Mayweather at a catchweight between 165lb and 175lb and claimed Showtime’s Stephen Espinoza is on board.
But he demanded the American icon settle his financial dispute with brother Logan, who claimed he was not fully paid following their fight.
Paul said: “If he is going to fight then why not fight me?
“I’ll make 175 you make 165, we’ll have a 10lb weight difference we can get that sanctioned.
“He didn’t care about the 35lb difference with Logan and he says once I fight a real fighter it will be bad for me.
“So really he has no excuse to why this fight shouldn’t happen. Espinoza’s down at Showtime and it makes a ton of sense.
“But I will say, if we do fight part of the contract will say that he has to pay my brother. I got you Logan.”

How to box efficiently
Boxing has become a very popular sport. Two opponents fight each other to the death. There are different rules for boxing, and they vary from one country to the next. There are three types generally of boxing: Amateur (Professional) and Olympic (Olympic).
Amateur boxing is usually practiced at school, college or university. This type includes sparring sessions using padded gloves, but without protection. Amateur boxing competitions typically last for three rounds, each lasting five minutes. Amateur boxing can be done in many styles, including Kickboxing and Muay Thai, Taekwondo or Karate, Judo, Wrestling, and Muay Thai.
Boxing professionals are usually trained in clubs, gyms, or stadiums. They are protected by protective equipment like a mouthpiece, nose protector, shinguards, elbow pads and knee pads, waist belt, and groin protection. Professional boxing competitions consist of six rounds lasting four minutes each. There are many styles to professional boxing.
Olympic boxing is performed at the Olympics. International standards dictate that boxers must wear protective gear. The competition lasts eight rounds of three minutes each. Olympic boxing is limited to two styles: Light Flyweight and Heavyweight.
The basic skills of boxing are:
- Punching techniques
- Guarding techniques
- Body movement
There are seven types of punches available: Left Hook and Right Hook, Cross, Cross, Straight, Underhand, Overhand, Cross, Straight, Cross, Straight, Cross, Straight, and Overhand. Each punch has its own technique. Some punches require more force than others. A strong uppercut for example requires a lot of force. On the other hand, a straight punch requires less power but it is faster than other punches.
There are also many combinations. These are combinations which combine several punches in order to achieve a specific goal. An entire combination could have several parts. For example, a combination of a left and right hook will result in damage to the opponent’s jaw.
A boxer uses his body to protect himself against attacks. He does so by using his arms, elbows and hands as well as his knees, knees and legs.
Boxers should use the legs to protect themselves against kicks. When he receives a kick, he raises his leg and moves away from the attacker. To avoid being kicked on the sides, he bends at his knees when the attacker strikes from the front. However, if the attack comes from behind, he stands up straight and blocks the kick with his foot.
Elbow strikes are very powerful because they inflict great pain. An elbow strike may be delivered directly or in an indirect manner. Directly means that your opponent is hit with your forearm. However, indirectly means that your elbow strike is delivered with another part or your arm.
Boxers use their hands as a shield against incoming punches. To do this, they raise their fists higher than their heads and move their arms in the direction that the attack is coming. Then they make contact with the attacker’s fist.
A boxer should bend his knees in order to absorb any blows to his stomach, abdomen, chest or stomach. For defense purposes, knee strikes are common.
When attacked, a boxer should step back and deliver counter-attacks. This way, he can gain distance between himself and his opponent. Also, boxers must maintain their balance while delivering counter-attacks.
Boxing is only possible if a boxer has a clear stance. His stance will determine how he defends. It determines his position and the direction he will face. Boxers have many options for stances. Here are the most commonly used ones:
- A low stance
- High stance
- Southpaw stance
- Western stance
Boxers must maneuver around their opponent to win fights. This means changing your speed, position and rhythm.
A boxer will rotate his arm when he is throwing a punch. The rotation is done at different speeds depending on the type of punch.
The timing of each punch determines the effectiveness of a combination. A combination that is effective starts with a strong punch, and ends with one that is weak.
Sparring is an exercise session to improve boxing skills. A sparring session is where a boxer trains both his mind and his body. The goal of sparring is to learn to fight, and not to get hurt.
You need to have patience and dedication in order to learn how boxing works. To become a better boxer, you must train hard and for a long time.
