YouTuber turned boxer, Jake Paul had a confrontation with WBC Super Featherweight champion, Floyd Mayweather. The incident took place after an NBA game between the Miami Heat and Cleveland Cavaliers in Miami. Both stars were in attendance when the Cavs edged the Heat, 104-100. In the Video Jake is with a single bodyguard when Mayweather approaches him with several guys. Ultimately, Paul could be seen running away from the confrontation in the video.
The two share a history dating back to when Jake’s elder brother, fought with the Featherweight champion. This dates back to 2021, during a pre-fight press conference between Logan and Floyd. It’s when Jake snatched Mayweather’s hat and run away with it, which spiked tempers in the Mayweather camp.

In the video, the cameraman mocks Jake after his loss to Fury and passed a threat. “What happened? You’re not talking no more since your loss? What happened since your loss,” the cameraman said. However, things seemed to escalate and Jake fled the scene. “Yo are we gonna bust him up guys, let’s bust him up. Where are you running Jake, where are you going since your fight?” continued the cameraman. However, Mayweather could be seen telling them to stop recording the incident.
In Dubai last year, when Jake fought an exhibition match against Tommy Fury, Jake caused another scene before his fight with Mayweather. Floyd refused to enter the ring until Jake had been out of the ring. However, Paul’s unbeaten run came to an end when Fury edged, Paul could be giving bizarre reasons for his loss.

Jake brought up the incident when he took his hat, for which he gathers the boxer is still upset about “I’m like first of all, what did I say to you, Floyd? I just took your hat and you’re still mad about it? Come on, bro. And then 50 dudes literally start surrounding me to jump me, and I’m out that bitch, ok?” Said, Jake.“You wanna run it one on one, no problem….. I’m not gonna sit there and try to fight 50 dudes.” continued Jake.
After last night’s confrontation with the boxer, Paul openly said that he would get in the ring with him. If they two end up officially getting in the ring, the fans will get another good exhibition bout between them.
