Jake Paul accepts Floyd Mayweather’s challenge with lullaby

Paul says he doesn’t do exhibitions, wants to face Mayweather in professional prizefight.

Wil Esco is an assistant editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2014.

Wasting no time after hearing Floyd Mayweather saying he’d be interested in an exhibition fight against him, Jake Paul immediately posts a social media response of his own, telling Floyd he wants to face him in a real professional bout with a 50/50 split. Paul, of course, had some fun with his response, sitting down for story time as detailed below...

“Dear Mr. Mayweather,

Who runs your Instagram? They need to get paid better.
Do us a favor and stay off social media,
you should focus on learning to read,
retirement, or maybe an encyclopedia.

You called me out to fight, but you’re half my height,
You might beat my brother, but Jake Paul is a different type.
Fuck your proposition, I don’t do exhibitions,
We can fight on my conditions, 50/50 commissions.

Oh, and we haven’t forgotten who tried to train Nate 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 17th,
I would love to fight you, Floyd,
and punch you in those fake veneer ass teeth.”
