Later, the journalist asked ‘The Black Beast’ what would he do if someone steals his hat. “I’d probably make it a scene like Floyd Mayweather. Especially if I didn’t shave. If I go a whole week without shaving, then I look like Bozo – the clown, doing an interview. So I have to chase them well,” he responded.

Although the UFC heavyweight star gave an amusing take on the same, the actual matter between Mayweather and Jake Paul was extremely serious.

No one prior to this had seen such a furious persona of Floyd Mayweather, who fumed over Paul just because he stole his hat. The brawl between the two only escalated, prompting security guards to jump in to separate them.

Before the scuffle, in the press conference, an already furious ‘Pretty Boy’ even admitted that he would fight Jake Paul and Logan Paul on the same night.

Will Jake Paul and Floyd Mayweather actually fight each other in 2021?

The 50-0 boxer retired in 2017, but his love for boxing prevails. Hence, he is eager to step inside the ring multiple times this year to fight in enormous exhibitions.
