Floyd Mayweather and Jake Paul get into furious BRAWL at Logan Paul press conference after YouTuber ‘disrespects’ boxer by stealing his hat
Floyd Mayweather and Jake Paul got into a shock brawl at the press conference for Floyd’s exhibition fight with Jake’s brother Logan Paul on Thursday.
The boxing legend met the two YouTubers at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, but things got out of hand when Jake squared up to Floyd and stole his hat.
The event started off in standard fashion as Mayweather squared off with Logan as planned.
They exchanged words on stage after the face-to-face and then separated.
Floyd went off to one side of the stage and Logan went off to the other, both engaging in media interviews.
After about ten minutes, Jake decided to confront Mayweather.
During the trash talk on stage, Floyd told Logan he would beat both Paul brothers on the same night.
Jake attempted to make this a reality by telling him to call his advisor Al Haymon and set up the double event.
The YouTuber then grabbed Floyd’s hat and attempted to run away with it before being briefly choked by the boxer as the brawl broke out.
Punches were thrown amidst the mayhem.
Security got in between and separated them, but Floyd wriggled away and came back for more
They were eventually broken up again with Jake ushered into a side room.
Mayweather was then filmed storming off, absolutely livid with the events that had just transpired.
Jake reacted by tweeting: “Honestly have had three easy fights as a pro so been itching for some real action.
“One of Floyd’s 30 bodyguards got a clean shot on me in the eye RESPECT!!”
