JAKE PAUL’S assistant trainer admitted there is a ‘major possibility’ the YouTuber faces Floyd Mayweather right after his brother Logan does.
Jake is coached by J’Leon Love, who is a long-time friend and former protege of Mayweather’s
And he revealed it could be inevitable that his 23-year-old boxing upstart finds himself fighting Mayweather right after Logan brings the all-time great out of retirement in February.
Love, 33, told SunSport: “With Jake, it’s a major possibility, a high chance.
“I thought about it and then left it alone but obviously Floyd and Jake are both in it to get the best out of it.
“Floyd is the pinnacle of it, so could it happen? Floyd is a businessman, so is Jake Paul, just as well as Logan, so if it makes money it makes sense.
“I think Jake would do it, there’s a possibility that happens.”
Mayweather, 43, retired in 2017, after beating UFC star Conor McGregor, 32, in ten rounds.
He did come back just a year after, to beat up featherweight kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in round one of their exhibition in Japan.
But his latest money-making scheme involving Logan – who lost his debut to internet rival KSI last year by split-decision – is audacious even by Mayweather’s standards.
The only thing combating his farcical experience and skill disparity is Logan’s FOUR STONE and six inch height advantage.
Love, who has spent years under the mentorship of Mayweather, gives Jake’s older brother no chance of pulling off the unthinkable.
But the super-middleweight is full of praise for Logan, who will stop at nothing to take on the biggest challenges worth the most amount of cash.
Love said: “At the end of the day Floyd is the greatest fighter to do this s*** in my era.
“We’ve been close for many years, it’s cool, it’s good entertainment, a good business move by Logan Paul, he’s willing to go very far to get that audience and views.
“I commend him for all that, but a win over Floyd Mayweather? Yeah f***ing right, it ain’t happening. But it’s entertainment.
“Of course, I’m Team Money, I don’t train Logan but he’s super cool, super smart and good luck, go put on a good show and make your money.”
