Paul called out Mayweather in an interview with TMZ, last month, declaring he would beat him easily in a fight: "Let me tell you this, if I caught Floyd in a real fight, street fight, whoop his ass! No question. MMA? Octagon? Whoop his ass! The only place I think Floyd is safe obviously is the boxing ring, but to be honest, I don't give a fuck! I don't give a fuck! I would fight Floyd anytime, anywhere, any place. Doesn't fuckin' matter to me," Paul said.
The boxing legend responded on Twitter: "These YouTube girls better find some Barbie dolls to play with cause I’m not the one for the kid games. 3 years ago a fighter from the UFC said my name and I had to put a muzzle on that bitch," Mayweather wrote.
Paul's brother, Jake, recently fought former NBA player Nate Robinson in a similar capacity.
