JAKE PAUL said Floyd Mayweather is ‘the little kid here’ who ‘just wants attention’ – as the YouTuber wants to fight Conor McGregor.

The internet star’s brother Logan publicly called out Mayweather and claimed one of his punches on the 5ft 8in American would ‘snap the f***er in half’.

It caught the attention of the 43-year-old, who tweeted: “These YouTube girls better find some Barbie dolls to play with because I’m not the one for the kid games.”

Jake, who fights on Mike Tyson’s undercard, did not take offence to the remark, and blasted Mayweather for wanting ‘relevancy’.

He told Daily Beast: “You know, it doesn’t bother me.

“At the end of the day, he’s like 5-foot-4, so he’s actually the little kid here, and obviously he just wants attention.

“He’s fiftysomething years old. He should be in retirement.

“So he just wants to get relevancy by talking about the YouTube kids, because we’re the ones popping off right now.”

Mayweather has not fought professionally since 2017, when he beat McGregor in ten rounds.

But he announced he would be returning to Tokyo next year – where he made £7million for a one round exhibition in 2018.

And beforehand, he is even open for a complete mismatch against Logan, who lost his debut by split-decision against KSI last year.

Jake, 23, meanwhile, who faces ex-NBA player Nate Robinson, 36, on Saturday, wants to fight former UFC champion McGregor, 32.

He said: “I’m a real pro boxer, and people have to take me seriously.

“My goal is to fight Conor McGregor and some of the UFC’s biggest fighters in the boxing ring.

“I’m going out there to prove that I’m good enough to make those fights happen, and I’m good enough to beat those guys.

“That’s where my career and this boxing stuff is going to go for the next three years.”
