Jake Paul and Floyd Mayweather caused quite a stir when they had a face-off during a media event to hype Logan Paul and Mayweather’s June 6th Showtime Boxing event.
Paul is proving his Problem Child name all the time. He snatched Mayweather’s hat, but he really didn’t think that would upset the undefeated boxing champion so much. While speaking to Chael Sonnen on the You’re Welcome podcast, Jake Paul detailed the experience.
“It was sort of a sensory overload with everything that was going on. There was, like, eight guys around me all grabbing me, some hitting me in the leg. I’m holding onto his hat for dear life. I was like, ‘No! I’m not letting go!’ And that was the main thing that they were concerned about it, like, ‘Give us the f*cking hat, give us the hat!’ And I was like, ‘No! Noooo!’”
“Then they finally got the hat and then I see this angry Floyd Mayweather, I couldn’t believe it. One of his security guards had my shirt wrapped around his hand so I couldn’t get away, and he just comes running at me and he’s throwing punches over the security guard. I’m literally like, ‘Oh wow, this is crazy,’ but the funny thing about it was none of the punches were even coming close to me at that point and he actually punched his own security guard in the side of the head. Absurd moment, hilarious. I didn’t think he was gonna get that mad over a hat.”
Paul also stated that he didn’t think the stunt would go viral. It was just something that he did, and now he is living with that. He is also banned from his brother’s June 6th fight against Money.
Jake Paul’s last boxing match saw him KO Ben Askren at Triller Fight Club’s event on April 17th. He currently has no next official fight. That doesn’t mean there is any shortage of contenders ready to step up and take him on.
Chuck Liddell recently stated that he would knock him out. WWE Superstar King Corbin also wouldn’t mind smashing either Paul Brother’s face in for a payday.
