Speculation has mounted over a potential Mayweather vs Paul fight since YouTuber Keemstar claimed that a “boxing insider” told him the clash would take place in 2020.
And KSI’s former trainer Viddal Riley recently suggested that Mayweather and Paul were now “in talks” over the fight.
Hearn worked closely with Paul to promote the 25-year-old American star’s 2019 blockbuster boxing bout with fellow YouTube rival KSI.
However, the 41-year-old Matchroom chief praised Paul by saying he is “very, very bright,” but he insisted that he “shouldn’t be fighting Floyd Mayweather.”
Speaking to SPORTbible ahead of Mafia: Definitive Edition’s release, Hearn explained: “I can’t say too much because I did KSI-Logan Paul II, but it’s two guys at the same level, who didn’t like each other, who have 25million YouTube followers each and they could fight a little bit, but they trained hard [and] they did it properly. But it was a fifty-fifty match-up.
