A female boxing champion has called Jake and Logan Paul 'clowns', and says she would 'whoop' Jake in a boxing match.
Claressa Shields, from Michigan, United States, is an Olympic gold medalist, and the first woman to hold all four belts - WBA, WBC, IBF and WBO- simultaneously, in two weight classes.
The 26-year-old has now come out and said that she doesn't believe the two YouTubers are real boxers and that she would like to 'whoop' Jake for disrespecting the sport.
Speaking via the MyBettingSites.co.uk blog, she said: "I like when the older fighters come back, like Roy Jones versus Mike Tyson.
"I think Jake Paul and his brother are more like clown shows, to be honest. But they're making money, they're using their platforms, but it's not real boxing.
"Respect to them for training, I guess - but I'd much rather see Mike Tyson versus Evander Holyfield or something.
"I don't want to see Floyd beat up Logan Paul but Floyd can do whatever he wants, he's accomplished everything so he gets to call his own shots - it's just something I don't want to see.
"No-one's ever mentioned an exhibition to me because they know I do real fights - I would whoop Jake Paul's a**, though, just because he thinks boxing is easy.
"I saw him do an interview recently where he said Youtube is harder than boxing. What - being a Youtube star is harder than being a boxer?
"He said something about posting to YouTube for 800 days straight. Big whoop, you posted a video.
"Do you understand what it takes to become a boxing world champion? I have trained more than 800 days. Putting up a video, for one it's free.
"You just post this s**t, the internet is doing the hard work, you're not doing nothing.
"So for him to say YouTube is harder than boxing, I was like, man, people are giving him a platform to say all kind of dumb stuff.
"He's [Jake Paul] picking his fights to make it entertaining, I don't know how Ben Askren box, I have no idea.
"I know he's been inside the cage before, he had a good record, so hopefully he has enough boxing skills to beat Jake Paul, but who knows. Ben is known as a wrestler, I think."
This isn't the first time a female fighter has said they would be up for having a pop at the 24-year-old.
Last year, UFC boss Dana White said he was 'thinking of letting Amanda Nunes knock Paul's a** out', after he tried to force the fight with Conor McGregor.
To which the Brazilian mixed martial artist tweeted in response: "I'm in!"
