It’s one thing to support your brother, but Jake Paul’s comment during his brother Logan’s battle – both during the broadcast and later on Twitter – has become more than a little annoying.
Paul was in the ring for his brother’s fight with Floyd Mayweather, who surprisingly covered the distance after the undefeated boxing champion failed to knock out YouTube. The younger Paul’s comment was caught on camera during several round breaks, claiming that his brother was winning despite clear evidence to the contrary.
“Two rounds to one,” Jake said after the third round.
As the fight continued, it became clear that Mayweather was dominating, but the knockout blow the fans wanted never came. Mayweather is a well-known defensive boxer and is not known for a strong knockout blow, while Paul repeatedly prolongs the fight by embracing Mayweather and forcing the judge to separate them.
After the fifth round, when Mayweather had connected with several blows and Logan seemed unable to stand up completely, Jake turned to the camera and said, “Three rounds to two. Logan stood up. Logan beats Floyd Mayweather, let it sink. “
Even the broadcast team, which included the comedy duo Desus and Mero, could not be impartial, telling him “you are wrong” and “silent.”
The fight turned out to be a huge failure, as Mayweather continued to box in defense, and the crowd began to play to the end. But Logan did, and his brother continued to brag that he had won the battle on Twitter.
“50-1 WORLD FK MY BROTHER JUST TO WIN FLOYD MAYWEHER,” said Jake, although the match was an exhibition and there would never be a winner announced by decision.
YouTuber colleague FaZe Sway responded to Paul’s tweet with a screenshot of the statistics from the battle, which showed that Mayweather was associated with 40 percent of his shots compared to 13 percent of Paul. This tweet has almost twice as many likes as Paul’s.
