Jake Paul isn’t the slightest bit concerned that Floyd Mayweather Jr. will be training with Tyron Woodley ahead of their Aug. 28 boxing match.

Paul says Mayweather’s advice will be of no help because ‘old man’ Floyd couldn’t beat Jake’s older brother Logan in their June 6 boxing exhibition match at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium.

“How is Floyd Mayweather (who couldn’t even get in shape or come up with a strategy enough to beat my brother) gonna teach another old man how to beat me?” Paul told talkSPORT’S Michael Benson in a recent interview.

Logan went the distance with Mayweather in a bout in which no winner was declared but is treating the fight as a moral victory because he went eight rounds against one of the greatest boxers of all time. Floyd’s uncle Jeff Mayweather says his nephew tried to finish Paul but couldn’t because the latter was just ‘too big’.

Jake, who is 0-3 since making his professional boxing debut last year, will take on Woodley at a Showtime Sports event on Aug. 28 at a TBA venue in Miami, Florida.
