I really don’t know who Logan Paul is, why he’s so popular or why people care that he’s boxing. Isn’t this the clown who faked his death years ago? I dunno, I don’t care. But on Thursday the tall and annoying “Youtube Star” brother, Jake Paul, tempted fate by snatching boxer Floyd Mayweather’s hat during a heated exchange (you can watch it above).
Jake Paul says he WAS punched in the face and claims it was one of Floyd’s bodyguards who threw the punch.
“1 of Floyd’s 30 bodyguards got a clean shot on me in the eye,” Jake said after the incident … “RESPECT!!”
He added, “Honestly have had 3 easy fights as a pro so been itching for some real action.”
Jake also said his plan from the beginning of the media event was to steal Floyd’s hat so in his mind, it’s mission accomplished.
Mayweather was PISSED and raged after the two sides were separated, unlike anything we’ve ever seen from him before.
At one point Floyd shouted, “I’ll kill you mother****er.”
While Logan Paul has scored a huge win for influencers in mainstream fighting by nabbing a fight with Mayweather, Jake Paul has crept up as the main name in YouTube boxing. Boasting a 3-0 professional record, Jake has defeated fellow influencer AneSonGib, former NBA player Nate Robsinon, and even retired MMA pro Ben Askren.
Logan Paul’s reaction to the scuffle seems decidedly exasperated, with the YouTuber despairingly claiming, “What the **** did he do, bro?”
All things considered, this altercation comes as little surprise, as Mayweather himself boasted that he would take on both Paul brothers on the same night. Maybe he should.
