Former five-weight world champion Floyd Mayweather was involved in a brawl with Jake Paul during an event promoting his exhibition bout with the YouTube star’s brother.

44 year old Mayweather, was due to pose for photographs in Miami for his June 6 exhibition fight with Logan Paul.

But when Jake Paul stole Mayweather’s hat after they exchanged words, a brawl involving several parties broke out.

Jake Paul later claimed one of Mayweather’s staff punched him.

Social media footage of the aftermath shows countless individuals grappling and it is not clear as to whether punches were thrown or landed.

Mayweather launched an expletive-laden tirade during and after the incident, when his publicist was seen telling him to get into a locker room.

Insults had already been traded in an earlier confrontation, with Logan Paul taunting Mayweather by referencing his 2011 domestic violence case.

Mayweather served two months of a three-month sentence after attacking an ex-girlfriend.

Before the brawl, Logan Paul told the press he firmly believed he could do what no boxer had ever done before and beat Mayweather, who last competed in a sanctioned bout in 2017 and retired with 50 wins from 50 professional fights.
