Jake Paul might be one of the most polarizing figures in sports right now, but he knows how to promote a boxing match. He and his brother, Logan Paul, went to Miami yesterday, May 6, to promote a boxing match. Logan will be fighting Floyd Mayweather on June 6.

So both Logan Paul and Floyd Mayweather were at the Hard Rock Stadium to promote the fight. Jake Paul was there as his brother’s hype man.

According to Logan’s younger brother, he was planning on stealing Floyd Mayweather’s hat from the get-go. So, he made sure to put himself in a position to be able to steal the legendary boxer’s hat.

After the press conference to promote the fight, all three of them walked off the stage. On the way out of the stadium, however, Jake Paul found a way to put himself in between the 50-0 boxer and the exit. In doing so, Jake confronted Floyd.

The two fighters began talking to each other. Immediately the two started talking aggressively about how they wanted to fight each other in the ring. The conversation quickly elevated as both fighters became more and more upset. At its culmination, Jake Paul ripped Floyd Mayweather’s hat off of his head. As he did so, he said, “Gotcha hat.”

Immediately, pandemonium struck. The younger Paul brother struggled toward the exit of the stadium as the legendary boxer tried to get his hat back. The throngs of people made it hard to see what was going on in the ensuing moments.

Nonetheless, Jake Paul was able to slip out and leave the immediate view of the cameras. Floyd Mayweather, on the other hand, was extremely upset.

As his bodyguards held him back from chasing after Paul, he let his feelings be known. The legendary boxer was yelling repeatedly that he was “gonna kill that m—r.”

After the incident transpired, Jake Paul returned to what looks like his hotel room to give fans a rundown of what happened. It appears that he is worse for wear after stealing Floyd Mayweather’s hat.

He also said, “Honestly, have had 3 easy fights as a pro. So been itching for some real action. 1 of Floyd’s 30 bodyguards got a clean shot on me in the eye. RESPECT!!”

What makes matters worse for Jake Paul is that he doesn’t have Floyd Mayweather’s hat in his hand. So even though he claims to have gotten the other boxer’s hat, there is no proof he really has it.
