Jake Paul showed up at the press conference with his brother Logan Paul to promote his brother’s upcoming bout with Mayweather. The boxing match between Logan Paul and Floyd Mayweather is set to take place on June 6, 2021.
The brawl on Thursday started after Jake Paul snatched Mayweather’s hat off. At some point during the conference, Jake Paul taunted him in a schoolboy-style yelling ‘Gotcha hat!’ after grabbing Mayweather’s hat. Things then quickly turned physical as both the parties engaged in a brawl. Mayweather and Paul threw several punches at each other before the bodyguards jumped in to calm them.

Jake Paul posted a video of a brawl in his social media, which showed champion boxer and his bodyguards running after him. Moments later, the bodyguards eventually broke the fight. However, Jake Paul received a minor injury as Mayweather left a shiner on his left eye. The reports claimed that Mayweather could face charges after assaulting the infamous YouTuber during the press conference.
Mayweather yelled Paul that he would kill the mother f*****!
During the press conference, Mayweather vowed to the audience that he would knock out Logan Paul. He further added that both Paul brothers, who recently started boxing are two fake fighters. Logan responded by slamming Mayweather’s hairline. He mentioned that the only thing that was fake on that stage was Mayweather’s hairline. Later, both brothers also mocked Floyd Mayweather’s age.
The undefeated pro-fighter then pledged to whoop their asses. Mayweather has an impressive undefeated 50-0 professional record. However, he hasn’t featured in any bout since 2017, when he beat UFC fighter, Conor McGregor. Meanwhile, Logan has played only one professional boxing match, also back in 2019. Paul lost to fellow YouTuber KSI in 2019 and has a 0-1 record.
Even though the professional record shows otherwise, Logan Paul isn’t short on confidence as he recently claimed that he is going to beat Mayweather in the bout. Mayweather reportedly told his 29-year-old girlfriend to leave his mansion while he prepares for his return from the retirement.
