What incident happened between Floyd Mayweather and Jake Paul?
Former world champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. will fight Logan Paul on Sunday, but weeks ago there was a brawl between him and Logan’s brother Jake.
Floyd Mayweather Jr and Logan Paul will face each other on Sunday in Miami in an exhibition boxing bout. However, the undefeated boxer and the YouTube personality will go into the ring with the objective of knocking each other out, as their hostility increased almost a month ago after an incident between Mayweather and Logan’s brother Jake Paul.
Logan Paul, who lost his only boxing fight via split decision to fellow YouTuber KSI, was promoting the fight together with ‘Money’ in an event at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami where both finally exchanged words and went face-to-face before the end of the show.

What happened between Mayweather and Jake Paul?
Things really kicked off shortly after Mayweather's scrum with reporters. It was when Jake Paul, who spotlighted the boxing news weeks before because of his fight against UFC fighter Ben Askren, decided to come up to the retired boxer and start taunting him.
Paul brother then said "I got your hat," and stole Mayweather's hat. Mayweather, 44, went after the Paul brother, while the security personnel tried to avoid the chaos. However, Jake ended up with a black eye and busted tooth.
“Today, I had a small problem. It was a little problem. The kid wanted to test the waters and try me out”, said Mayweather after the brawl. Then he later hit out at Paul, saying of the incident: "It's one thing to sell a fight, and people can say what they want, but one thing no one is going to do, is disrespect me."
Meanwhile, Logan Paul, overwhelmed by the situation, stated that “I didn't expect Floyd Mayweather to try and kill my brother with all of his security guard”.
