Floyd Mayweather attended an event yesterday to promote his upcoming fight with Logan Paul, but during the event, Jake Paul decided to challenge Floyd to a fight.
“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.”
It got heated at the Floyd Mayweather-Logan Paul press conference after Jake Paul took Mayweather's hat.

In what people are calling a “staged” altercation, Jake then grabs Floyd’s hat and tries to run. But Floyd is quicker, and grabs Jake and manages to land a punch. Floyd can then be seen yelling that he’s going to “kill” Jake Paul for disrespecting him.
Jake later posted that it was a security guard who landed the punch and blacked his eye, but Mayweather’s daughter Yaya shared an image that appeared to show Floyd landing a punch.
