Speaking to Mauro Ranallo during the Bellator 259 live broadcast, Paul gave an update on his upcoming June 6 exhibition bout with Mayweather, and revealed how his assignment got even more difficult, thanks to his younger brother Jake.
“I’ve been saying this. What exhibition is eight three-minute rounds?
“This is a fight and if Floyd didn’t want to rip my head off before my brother took his hat, now he’s trying to kill me.
“He’s trying to make an example of the big brother so the younger brother has to suffer and watch and witness. I don’t know if you’ve seen ‘Scarface,’ but that’s what he’s trying to do.”
“I am not going to make this s*** easy for him.
“We’ve been training our a**** off for eight months now preparing to fight this guy.
“I’m 30 pounds heavier, I’m six or seven inches taller, half his age and hungry.
“And I’ve got nothing to lose. I’m going in there with that energy, and he’s got everything to lose. ”
“There’s a lot on the table for him (and) not a lot on the table for me. And that’s a dangerous man.”
“Yeah, absolutely,” he said.
“I actually think I’d probably be better at MMA because of my wrestling background.
“I will say it is a tough sport, it’s harder than boxing.
“I’ve had some knee issues on both knees and it’s rough on the body. But I can’t not do one MMA fight before I die, you know?
“I’m going to do at least one. And if I do one, I’ll probably do another.”
