In a chat with The Sun, Jake Paul said, “I would tell him not to wear a hat. If he wants to play those games, we can play those games, Tommy.”

“Look, if you want to wear a hat, that sh!t’s going to get taken, one way or another. I’m stealing everybody’s hat, nobody’s hat’s safe. This kid’s not fast enough, Floyd Mayweather, I took this guy’s hat and he had to have 20 guys to hold me down before he could get one punch off 15 seconds later.” (H/T-Boxing Scene)
