Despite vowing he could beat both Jake Paul and Logan Paul on the same night, Floyd Mayweather won't actually pull double duty on June 6.

"Realistically, he could [fight both brothers], but no, from a business standpoint, no," Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe told TMZ Sports

Mayweather is currently only scheduled to face YouTuber Logan Paul in an exhibition next month.

"[Floyd] and Logan are gonna have a great exhibition on the 6th of June and the whole world will be entertained," Ellerbe added.

If it weren't weird enough for an all-time great boxer to take on an internet personality, the promotional campaign got even stranger when Jake Paul started his own feud with Mayweather:

Mayweather might have escalated things during the press conference, saying he could beat both Logan and Jake on the same night, per TMZ Sports. He also called them "two fake fighters."

The two brothers have only recently gotten into the boxing world. Jake is 3-0 with wins over former NBA player Nate Robinson and former MMA fighter Ben Askren, while Logan's only experience is against fellow YouTuber KSI.
