·2 min read

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – Jake Paul has done a lot of annoying mixed martial arts fighters on social media since he knocked out Ben Askren. But when he annoyed one of the greatest boxers of all time face to face Thursday, he paid the price.

Jake, who attended a news conference for brother Logan Paul’s upcoming exhibition match against Floyd Mayweather at Hard Rock Stadium, got into a physical altercation when he faced off with Mayweather in front of cameras.

Paul and Mayweather jawed away at one another as a large crowd of reporters surrounded them. That’s when Paul took it one step further.

“Got your hat!” Paul said as he swiped Mayweather’s white cap. From there, all hell broke loose.

“Don’t disrespect me!” Mayweather yelled after the two were pulled apart. “Let’s go!” Paul responded, with torn clothing.

As Paul was restrained, Mayweather charged back at the YouTube star. From there, the irate former boxing champ appeared to land a series of blows. Once pulled apart again, a ballistic Mayweather hollered that he’d kill Paul.

“I’ll kill that motherf*cker!” Mayweather repeated.
