Jake Paul claims Floyd Mayweather is 'out of pocket' and scared to risk 50-0 record against him, Logan Paul and 50 Cent

JAKE PAUL claimed Floyd Mayweather is 'out of pocket' and only doing exhibition bouts to protect his 50-0 record.

Mayweather is set to fight once more against Jake's older brother Logan, though it has been postponed from the initial February 20 date.

But the unbeaten boxing legend also mapped out a plan for future exhibitions this year, against Jake and rapper 50 Cent.

The YouTube sensation responded by accusing Mayweather of being strapped for cash and desperate for easy-money opponents.

Jake, 24, told TMZ Sports: "It just came out of left field.

"It just seems like this guy is money hungry. It seems like he hasn't paid his taxes or some s*** and he just wants to fight everyone.

"He's almost 50-year's-old and this guy is calling out people half his age. Who knows what Floyd Mayweather is doing?

"Honestly, he just looks like a clown, the response he gave me, it just doesn't add up. He's out of pocket and he's struggling.

"He took an L and don't get on social media if you're afraid of getting your feelings hurt."

Jake appeared uninterested in fighting Mayweather in an exhibition as he insisted the American icon is afraid of losing his winning streak.

He said: "I'm 2 and 0 with 2 KO's with pro fights.

"If Floyd wants to do these exhibitions, you know cool, but I'm a real fighter. He has to take me seriously.

"And I think the reason he wants to do these exhibitions is because he's afraid to risk his legacy of his 50 and 0 record in case he were to lose.

"But, I'm not doing the exhibition s***. It doesn't interest me. Those are like fake patty-cake fights."

Mayweather, 43, and Logan, 25, are yet to announce their new fight date.

But Jake – who faces ex-UFC welterweight Ben Askren on April 17 – opened the door to boxing his brother's next opponent in 2022.

He said: "This guy is out of his mind.

"He just calls me out, out of nowhere — same with 50 Cent! I mean, he hasn't even fought my brother yet.

"It just seems like he's losing his marbles, like 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 matchup a year from now."
