Jake Paul and Floyd came face to face and started exchanging words. Jake has always been able to piss off whoever is in front of him but this time things seem to have gone a little out of control. While they both were talking, Jake decides to run with Floyd’s hat but gets caught by some member of the security team and Floyd himself. Suddenly things get a little hard for the younger Paul has he gets pushed and then goes on the ground but somehow manages to get up and run from the spot.
All of this big drama show is very common for the Paul brother but Floyd seems to have taken it seriously.
“I don’t have to talk about what I’m going to do. The world knows what I’m going to do,” Floyd said. “I’m willing to fight both in the same night.”
Speaking to The Athletic later that day, Mayweather said the fight was sparked because he feels that the Paul brothers disrespected him.
“I don’t want to be disrespected,” he said. “You can’t keep touching me and disrespecting me.”
But he also acknowledged that some prefight hype never hurts.
“Jake Paul wanted some attention, and he got it. And so did I,” he said.
