Jake Paul was recently confronted by legendary undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather and his entourage in Miami. 

Here is everything you need to know.

Jake Paul met Floyd Mayweather at Heat Game

Jake Paul attended the NBA game between Miami Heat and the Cleveland Cavaliers. It took place at the FTX Arena in Miami on Wednesday night.

However, he came face-to-face with his old nemesis Floyd Mayweather following the game. 

Meanwhile, TMZ Sports obtained exclusive footage of the incident. In the clip, we can see Mayweather and a group of men rolling up on Paul who was only accompanied by a lone security guard at the time.

Furthermore, The Problem Child decided to make a run from the scene after exchanging a couple of words most likely to avoid any physical altercation.

If you didn’t know, Mayweather and the 26-year-old have been at odds since the former snatched Money’s hat in May 2021.

Paul reportedly pulled the stunt following a press conference promoting his brother Logan Paul’s exhibition bout with the retired boxer.

Jake Paul addresses the situation on social media 

Jake Paul took to Instagram shortly after his meeting with Floyd Mayweather to issue a statement to address the altercation.


He wrote, ‘So I’m leaving the Miami Heat game and Floyd Mayweather and 50 dudes pull up out of nowhere, out of like some side alley, waiting for me outside the stadium, and they’re like, “So what’s up? what’s all that talk now?”‘

Moreover, he added, ‘I’m like first of all, what did I say to you, Floyd? I just took your hat and you’re still mad about it? Come on, bro.’

Sources close to Mayweather on the other hand dismissed Paul’s claim that he deliberately ambushed him. Consequently, they shared that Mayweather ran into Paul while exiting the game.

In addition, Mayweather allegedly confronted Paul after he made certain comments that crossed the line from the typical trash talk between fighters.

The insider added, ‘Jake crossed the line. This wasn’t about grabbing a hat. This was about Jake’s comments to Floyd about Floyd’s deceased family member and other below-the-belt inappropriate behavior.’

They went on to point out, ‘Jake went to his IG and started name calling once again when he can hide behind a camera.’

Meanwhile, Paul replied by saying, ‘Floyd, you want to run it one-on-one, no problem but I’m not dumb. I’m tough. I don’t need to prove my toughness but I’m not f****** dumb.’
