Jake Paul seems to be picking on everybody these days. He has done a lot of annoying things to mixed martial arts fighters since he defeated fellow Youtuber Ben Askren.
But, when he tried to pick at one of the greatest boxers of all time, there was little that could be done.
Jake Paul, who was attending a news conference for brother Logan Paul’s upcoming exhibition match against Floyd Mayweather at Hard Rock Stadium, got into a physical bout when he faced off with Mayweather in front of cameras.

Paul and Mayweather jawed at one another while being surrounded by hundreds of reporters. The fight escalated when Paul swiped Mayweather’s white cap by saying, “Got your hat!”. After that there was no coming back.
Mayweather erupted and yelled “Don’t disrespect me!”. Eventually, both of them were pulled apart. But Jake Paul was not done yet as he said, “Let’s go!”
As Paul was restrained, Mayweather charged at him with a series of blows. The enraged former boxing champ threatened Paul that he would kill him.
“I’ll kill that motherf*cker,” Mayweather repeated.

Shortly after that, Paul took to Twitter to troll Mayweather by posting, “gotcha hat”.

Jake Paul has been creating quite a ruckus. This incident comes just two weeks after Paul’s confrontation with former UFC champion Daniel Cormier at UFC 261. Thankfully, that did not escalate into violence.
The Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul pay-per-view event is scheduled to take place on June 6.
Is Jake Paul doing this for clout? Let us know what you think in the comments.
