Jake Paul and Floyd Mayweather throw punches in ugly brawl at press call for boxing legend's fight with Logan Paul
FLOYD MAYWEATHER and Jake Paul were involved in an ugly brawl after the YouTuber stole the boxing legend's CAP.
Former four-weight world champion Mayweather will lock horns with elder brother Logan Paul in an exhibition bout at Miami's Hard Rock Stadium on June 6.
The pair, 44 and 26 respectively, got their first glimpse of one another on during their first pre-fight press conference.
And there appeared to be no love lost between the duo, who initially exchanged pleasantries as they stared into each other's eyes.
But the chaos came moments later as a scuffle ensued after Logan's younger sibling confronted the former pound-for-pound king.
It all kicked off shortly after Jake shouted 'you wanna make it two in one night' to 'Money' Mayweather.
As he made his way over to confront The Problem Child, a fire-up Mayweather said: "Yes."
Pandemonium ensued after Paul stole Mayweather's hat – with the pair eventually separated after members of their entourages got in between them.
But Mayweather was still clearly irate after the encounter and could be heard shouting: "When I catch you, motherf***er, I'll kill you motherf***er! You crazy?!
"I don't know who the f*** he thinks he's playing with, but I don't play no motherf***ing games!

"I'll f*** you up! I don't play no motherf***king games."
After he was dragged away from the scene, Mayweather shouted: "I'll kill that motherf***er."
Paul took to Twitter to comment on the incident, as he said: "Honestly have had three easy fights as a pro so been itching for some real action.
"One of Floyd’s 30 bodyguards got a clean shot on me in the eye. RESPECT!!"
Mayweather's clash with Logan has been maligned by many in the boxing community, with several claiming it's damaging the legitimacy of the sport.
The Money Man, however, couldn't care less about the opinions of his detractors as his exhibitions are providing financial security for his family.
He recently said: "A lot of times they say, 'Oh, Mayweather, he's doing exhibitions' they be like, 'It's bad for boxing'.
"But at the end of the day, I look at my children, I look at my grandson, I look at my mother, I look at my father.
"My mother's a millionaire, my dad's a millionaire, my children are millionaires, my little grandson's a multi-millionaire and he doesn't even know it."
