Floyd Mayweather Jr. cast doubt about his future inside the ring following his exhibition with Logan Paul on Sunday night.
Mayweather said “absolutely not” to the idea of scheduling another official boxing match. Regarding an exhibition on par with the Paul encounter, he added that it’s “probably not” in the cards.
The latter comment is somewhat surprising since all of the signs pointed to an event with Jake Paul. The 24-year-old is working his way up the combat sports ladder, and a date with former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley beckons on Aug. 28.
Mayweather and Jake Paul seemed to plant the seeds for something down the road with their interaction at a press event in May.
Mayweather also told TMZ Sports that his plan after the Logan Paul fight was “probably Jake.”
Money always talks, especially when a star uses “Money” as his moniker.
Once Mayweather dispatched Conor McGregor in August 2017, almost nobody could’ve predicted he’d step inside the ring with a famous YouTuber nearly four years later. If the 44-year-old senses he can collect another big payday down the road for minimal work, then it might be too tough to turn down.
