Jake Paul ready to ‘snub Tommy Fury rematch to face Floyd Mayweather as part of three-fight plan including KSI’


JAKE PAUL is said to be leaning towards a fight with Floyd Mayweather next instead of rematching Tommy Fury.

The YouTuber-turned boxer was beaten for the first time in seven professional bouts when he lost a split-decision to Fury.

Paul has maintained he would exercise his rematch clause with early indications it would be eyed for July.

But just weeks after his loss, the American was involved in a street altercation with Mayweather outside a Miami Heat game.

Paul later called out the boxing legend to settle the score in the ring in a sanctioned bout and not an exhibition.

Now YouTube reporter Keemstar has claimed sources say Mayweather is the top of his wishlist to fight next.

A rematch with Fury and grudge match against KSI then follow in that order as a part of a three-bout plan.

Paul’s feud with Mayweather dates back to the summer of 2021 when he stole the 50-0 icon’s hat at a press conference, sparking a mass brawl.

A month later, brother Logan, 27, would go the eight-round distance in his exhibition with Mayweather.

The five-weight world champion officially retired in 2017 after beating UFC superstar Conor McGregor, 34.

But he has continued to box in exhibition bouts ever since, recently completing his sixth one.

But Paul, 26, has no interest in facing Mayweather, 46, unless it is in a professional capacity with their records on the line.

He tweeted: “Floyd will not see me 1 on 1 in a real fight. That’s a fact. His team has hit my team numerous times to do one of his “exhibitions”.

“Now he ambushes me. Come see me in the ring, real fight, no exhibition robbing fans bulls***.”

Keemstar’s report comes after Paul cryptically tweeted: “Options.”

Fury, 23, is open to a rematch with his celebrity boxing rival, having edged out on points in Saudi Arabia.

Meanwhile, Paul was in line to finally face KSI at the end of the year but those plans took a hit following his defeat.
