Floyd is already set to face Jake’s brother, Logan Paul, in an exhibition which is currently postponed.

After this, he wants to fight Jake and rapper 50 Cent.

Mayweather said: “This year I will focus on several exhibitions.

“I will have an exhibition in Tokyo, Japan again. Of course the one with Logan Paul and I.

“And if Jake Paul can get past his next opponent Ben Askren, I will have an exhibition with him as well.”

Jake responded with a social media video mocking Mayweather almost instantly.

He said: “Dear Mr Mayweather, who runs your Instagram? They need to get paid better.

“Do us a favour and stay off of social media, you should focus on learning to read, retirement or maybe an encyclopaedia.

“You call me out to fight, but you’re half my height. You might beat my brother, but Jake Paul is a different type.

“F*** your proposition, I don’t do exhibitions, we can fight on my conditions, 50/50 commissions.

“Oh, and we haven’t forgotten you tried training Nate [Robinson] to beat me.

“I left him unconscious on the canvas, let’s hope you’re not that easy.

“A quick NBA knockout, he’s never boxing again. Speaking of NBA, who knocked up your daughter my friend?

“After I KO Askren on Triller, April 17, I would love to fight you Floyd and punch you in those fake veneer ass teeth.”

To this, Mayweather replied: “Jake Paul is talking about he don’t do exhibitions, them two bulls*** boxing matches he had were exhibitions. They were not against real professional boxers.

“And I don’t even play when it comes to education because millions of blacks got lynched just for reading.

“Let me see, you went to get a black boxing trainer, try to dress like you’re black, wear jewellery like black people, try to dance like black people, but you don’t want to be BLACK.

“All you do is jack black swag from us. You go from groupie fan to a fake professional fighter, this world is crazy.”

And Paul has now told TMZ: “This guy’s out of his mind, he just calls me out, out of nowhere, same with 50 Cent.

“He hasn’t even fought my brother yet, it just seems like he’s losing his marbles. What the f*** is this guy doing?

“We’ll see what happens with him and my brother, we’ll see how that fight goes.

“And yeah I could totally see a Jake Paul vs Floyd match-up a year from now. That’s totally possible.

“He is a lot harder of an opponent than Conor McGregor.

“McGregor’s an MMA fighter, Floyd is one of the best boxers to ever live, but it doesn’t scare me.

“He’s smaller than me and he’s old, like he’s old. That speed goes away, the power goes away, the endurance goes away.

“That’s why I’m excited to see – if he fights my brother, let’s see what happens…

“I’m doing legit pro fights. I’m 2 and 0 with 2 KOs with pro fights.

“If Floyd wants to do these exhibitions, cool, but I’m a real fighter and he has to take me seriously.

“I think the reason he wants to do these exhibitions is because he’s afraid to risk his legacy of his 50-0 record in case he were to lose.”
