JAKE PAUL has trolled combat sports legends Floyd Mayweather and Anderson Silva, inistsing he’d beat the pair ‘in the same night’.
The pair put on clinics in their respective bouts – both of which went the distance – but neither man impressed YouTuber turned boxer Paul.
Shortly after the event, Paul tuiteó: “I would beat Floyd and Anderson in the same night.”
Fight fans were quick to comment on Paul’s bold claim, con uno diciendo: “You’re not touching Anderson buddy. Even at his age.”
Otro dijo: “What kind of dope is this kid on?”

Y otro dijo: “I don’t think you could beat any average 24yo amateur boxer.”
One chimed in: “I don’t care if Silva was 60, Silva wins this fight. Ez I bet the house on that.”
Otro comentó: “Considering one is not a boxer and one is smaller weight class yeah.
“Fight boxers at your weight. Stop the cowardice.”

One boxing fan replied to the tweet by saying: “Just fight Tommy [Furia]. Scared to fight a boxer.”
Otro dijo: “You don’t want that smoke, be honest.”
Y otro dijo: “You won’t fight him because he’s a legit striker.”
