Floyd Mayweather and Jake Paul came face-to-face in Miami with the internet sensation seen running away from the confrontation.
Things certainly got heated after the Heat and Cavs NBA game, with Paul claiming the legendary boxer and ‘25 dudes’ rolled up on him out of nowhere.
In footage shared by TMZ, Paul can be seen trying to get away from Mayweather and his entourage as words are exchanged.
The Problem Child had one bodyguard with him at the time and decides to make a break for it before any fists start flying.
The YouTuber-turned-boxer addressed the situation on social media quickly after the altercation.
He said: “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?’
“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. And then 50 dudes literally start surrounding me to jump me, and I’m out that b***h, ok?”
The 26-year-old then tweeted about the situation, challenging Floyd to a one-on-one fight.
Although his recount of the scenario now reduced the amount of ‘dudes’ with Mayweather from 50 to 25.
He tweeted: “Floyd if you want to fight 1 on 1 we can do that but don’t try to hop out of 3 cars 25 dudes deep tryna to jump me while I’m tryna enjoy my Wednesday night.”
TMZ reports that Floyd wasn’t attempting to ‘jump’ Paul but instead happened to run into him while leaving the basketball game.
The pair’s beef kickstarted back when the undefeated boxer took on Jake’s brother Logan Paul in 2021.
In the build-up to the fight, Jake got into Floyd’s face and infamously stole his hat as he ran away with a hoard of the ‘Money Team’ chasing after him.
However, according to a source who spoke to TMZ, the feud goes beyond the typical trash talk, saying that Jake made ‘comments to Floyd about Floyd’s deceased family member’.
With Floyd’s run of exhibition matches, including one against KSI’s brother Deji, it wouldn’t be surprising if this match was in the pipeline.
While the weight discrepancy is massive, the beef between the pair and the eventual fight would make for a box office smash.
