The US fighter will bout YouTuber Paul this Sunday and if he is defeated by the internet star his legacy in boxing could be tainted.
Fans, boxers and pundits alike have questioned why he has taken the fight and one former fighter has said it could leave his reputation in tatters.
Carl Froch told Sky Sports: “Mayweather could end up making a mockery of his whole career.
“If he gets caught and gets put down, it will be embarrassing. If he loses, he might as well get a one-way ticket to Australia.”
