Jake Paul has criticized Floyd Mayweather for setting a precedent of avoiding high-risk fights to maintain an undefeated record in boxing.

Paul's comments were made in an interview with Sky Sports F1 ahead of his fight with former UFC fighter Nate Diaz.

Paul expressed frustration that many big fighters are unwilling to put their records and belts on the line by fighting against other well-known fighters.

He argues that Mayweather's retirement with a 50-0 record has contributed to this trend.

Paul stated that "if you lose, you're kind of swept under the rug in boxing," and that it is important for more champions to fight other big names, like Ryan Garcia did when he faced Tank Gervonta Davis, even if they ultimately lose.

Paul recently lost his own record after being defeated by Tommy Fury in a highly publicized bout. However, he remains optimistic about a potential rematch, stating that it will definitely happen.

According to Paul, their first fight was the biggest pay-per-view event of the past two years, and he believes that running it back would be a great opportunity.

Paul's criticism of Mayweather and his call for more high-risk fights in boxing are likely to have serious repercussions, given Mayweather's reputation as one of the greatest boxers of all time.

However, Paul has gained notoriety in recent years for his controversial actions and outspoken opinions, so it remains to be seen what impact his comments will have on the boxing community.
