Jake’s brother Logan – who ‘fought’ Floyd Mayweather in an exhibition bout in June but lost against fellow Internet personality KSI in a split decision in 2019 – reacted by tweeting: ‘who the F*** is knocking people out flat like that repeatedly’.

Ryan Garcia from the Boxing Association said, ‘KO Of The Year TBH’. DDG on the other hand said, ‘Jake Paul was the closest thing that we have to floyd Mayweather at this stage’.

Mayweather’s half-century career of professional bouts has produced a 50-0 record. He is widely considered one of the greatest boxers ever.

One user said that Tommy seemed to be the winner of this fight. This was in reference to British boxer Tommy Fury who pulled out and could have avoided a bullet, according to this tweet.
