Following the Miami Heat game on Wednesday night, YouTube star Jake Paul and boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather had an unexpected run-in. When the two of them came into contact, there was a brief argument that immediately died down. Yet shortly after, Paul was seen hurriedly exiting the area.
What brought the two of them together is unknown. Jake later claimed that in addition to Floyd, around 50 other people had confronted him. Jake thinks that the YouTuber taking Floyd’s cap before the latter’s altercation with Jake’s older brother Logan is what caused the tension.
Here is the full video of the altercation:
What Did Jake Paul and Floyd Mayweather Jr. Say About the Conflict?
Although the video footage of the altercation leaves the specifics of the incident unclear, Jake Paul and Floyd Mayweather’s sources have offered their accounts of what happened.
Jake commented on the topic on his Instagram stories shortly after the incident:
“So I’m leaving the Miami Heat game and Floyd Mayweather and 50 dudes pull up out of nowhere, out of like some side alley, waiting for me outside the stadium, and they’re like, ‘So what’s up? what’s all that talk now?'”
“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 b**ch, okay?”
Afterward, he hinted at a potential boxing battle on Twitter. He stated:
“Floyd if you want to fight 1 on 1 we can do that but don’t try to hop out of 3 cars 25 dudes deep tryna to jump me while I’m tryna enjoy my Wednesday night.”
However, a person close to Floyd reportedly said that Jake’s offensive comments regarding Floyd’s family were the cause of the altercation:
“Jake crossed the line. This wasn’t about grabbing a hat. This was about Jake’s comments to Floyd about Floyd’s deceased family member and other below-the-belt inappropriate behavior.”
