Floyd Mayweather And Logan Paul Are Now 'In Talks' Over Mega-Fight
And now Riley, 23, has added to the speculation by claiming that they are both "in talks" over the fight.
The British boxer is signed to Mayweather Promotions and has been trained under Jeff Mayweather.
"Logan Paul vs Floyd Mayweather? How is this a thing? I don't understand," Riley told Sky Sports.
"Both guys are in talks. It is not confirmed yet. Remember, I get the inside scoop. I hang around the family. It is not confirmed yet but it is in talks."
Riley also served as the boxing trainer for YouTube star KSI, who defeated fierce rival Paul in their blockbuster fight in 2019.
KSI, real name Olajide Olatunji, has hit out at the rumours of Paul vs Mayweather, saying 'why the f**k' would the boxing legend fight his rival after he beat him.
The 27-year-old told TMZ: "It's not happening. Why the f**k would Mayweather say 'yes' to this? Why would he fight the loser of me and Logan?

"I'm the bigger draw when it comes to boxing, because I defeated the one who started it -- Joe Weller -- and defeated Logan Paul himself.
"So, why would Mayweather want to fight the second best, when he can just easily fight the best?"
Riley has echoed KSI's sentiments and backed the idea of Mayweather fighting 'JJ' over Paul in an exhibition fight.
"Floyd is fighting the loser of the situation," he explained.
"I like Logan, but he did lose -- he had a draw, then lost. But he is still generating this attention.
"What has happened to the winner, the golden child? Where is the real money fight? That is KSI.
"Where would the most money be secured? It's not with Logan because he is a B-side. Where is the money? It's with KSI. He was the winner.
"The fight people want to see is Jake Paul vs KSI. Nobody mentions Logan Paul."
