Tempers are already heating up between Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul just ahead of their exhibition fight scheduled for June this year. It is reported that Mayweather was embroiled in a furious scuffle with the YouTuber's brother, Jake Paul, at a media event for his exhibition fight.
The United States boxing champion and multi-weight world winner shared a face-off with his next opponent, Paul. However, Paul's younger brother Jake also used the opportunity and then confronted the boxer-turned-businessman in front of the cameras.
With the bout slated for 6 June at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, the duo was involved in a heated exchange war of words and Jake ripped Mayweather's baseball cap off as the pair clashed angrily in front of the watching media.
According to SkySports, the boxing ring veteran had to be forced back by security officers as he ranted about Jake Paul, who compared himself to Mayweather ahead of his third pro fight.
It is also reported that Logan’s only pro bout back in November 2011 ended in a points defeat to fellow YouTuber KSI, but he has still agreed to share the ring with Mayweather.
Briefly News reported that the exhibition match will be staged on 6 June at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami and the undefeated boxer, Mayweather, recently announced the date on his Instagram page.
As the bout was postponed from its original February date, the eagerly anticipated fight will pit the experienced boxer against the YouTube star-turned-amateur boxer KSI.
The 44-year-old Mayweather, who also brags a 50-0 match record, will look to win the fight, however, he should not undermine the amateur opponent.
