Floyd Mayweather Warns Logan Paul: You’ll Get Same ‘Treatment’ As Conor McGregor
Floyd Mayweather has finally responded to rumours linking him to a fight with Logan Paul, viciously warning the YouTuber he'll get the same "treatment" as Conor McGregor.
Stories of Mayweather fighting an exhibition bout with Paul sprang up earlier this year. 'Money' had kept his silence but, with Mayweather reportedly planning an event of some type in Japan in 2021, he's now taken to Twitter and targeted Paul.
"These YouTube girls better find some Barbie dolls to play with cause I'm not the one for the kid games," Mayweather said.
"Three years ago a fighter from the UFC said my name and I had to put a muzzle on that bitch. @loganpaul can get the same treatment before I go conquer Japan again."
While Floyd doesn't mention McGregor by name, the reference to a fighter from the UFC is clearly a callback to the 2017 boxing bout between the pair, which Floyd won by 10th-round stoppage.
Logan Paul responded to Mayweather's challenge with a simple comeback. "50-1," Paul tweeted, quoting Floyd's original threat.
Mayweather retired with a perfect 50-0 record after the McGregor win. So this from Paul - who obtained his pro boxing licence last year - is a warning not to get too cocky.
Logan Paul's professional record is a somewhat less impressive 0-1, after his points defeat to KSI a year ago.

Floyd's saying he aims to conquer Japan again is a reference to the ugly spectacle of Mayweather taking on kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa - under boxing rules - in December 2018. It resulted in a one-sided beating for Nasukawa.
But it's a potential Mayweather vs Logan Paul showdown that has got fight fans talking. Some seem delighted with the prospect of seeing Paul get punched in the face (harsh) while others trashed the whole prospect as a farce.
If floyd loses his perfect record to a youtuber then the boxing world will realize youtube boxing is a real force to be reckoned with, not just a little stunt for views- David:flag_black: (@davids3bastian) November 19, 2020
