Jake Paul and Floyd Mayweather’s entourage brawled at a press conference on Thursday. This took place ahead of the former pro boxer’s June 6 exhibition involving the YouTube star’s brother, Logan Paul.
Paul, who is unbeaten after three novice bouts got a black eye after the brawl.
He tweeted, “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.”
An hour later, he posted a controversial tweet regarding the brawl between him and Floyd. He said, “Word on the street already is that Floyd is sending goons after me to try and kill me or hurt me if I die. I died for the hat.”
Mayweather returned to the ring in the following year for an exhibition bout in Tokyo. He was against a fast-rising Japanese kickboxer, Tenshin Nasukawa. in the first and only round Floyd knocked the youngster down three times.
The unofficial contest seemed to spark a new boon for showbiz boxing, a sideshow to pro boxing. Other icons of the sport like Mike Tyson, and the Paul brothers, have benefitted from it. The fight between Mayweather and Logan Paul is the next event in this ongoing series of lucrative, crossover exhibitions.
Taking place on June 6, the event will be broadcast on Showtime pay-per-view from the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida.
Other than the bout between Logan Paul and Mayweather, there’s no confirmation of any other fight happening between them.
