Floyd Mayweather will train Jake Paul for a fight against YouTube personality. This Mad Libs-esque statement is actually happening. The world champion boxer will train Jake Paul for his fight against fellow YouTuber KSI.

Paul has advocated for an MMA fight instead of boxing, but KSI would rather box. Paul has suggested the unusual idea of doing one round of MMA followed by a round of boxing. KSI responded and ridiculed Jake for picking Mayweather for a fight that he wanted to make an MMA bout. KSI responded by saying, “Gets Floyd as his trainer, and still wants MMA? Smh, get the f*ck outta here…”

He also posted fight footage with the caption: “Coming soon…”

“It could be a boxing match, it could be an MMA fight, but it doesn’t matter, it’s a fight,” Mayweather said in the video. “I got your back, I’m a train you, I’m a work with you, I’m gonna help you with certain skills you need to know. You gotta bob and weave. Use that weave. I got you.” A previous fight between YouTube stars Joe Weller and KSI received over 16 million views on YouTube and a Jake Paul Vs. KSI would be even more viewed. KSI defeated Weller with a third round TKO.
