The scuffle occurred at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami on Thursday, where Jake was on hand to help advertise his brother Logan Paul‘s upcoming bout with Mayweather, which is scheduled to take place on June 6.
Mayweather and the Paul brothers traded verbal jabs in front of the cameras, with Mayweather calling the siblings ‘two fake fighters’.
‘The only thing that’s fake on this stage is Floyd’s f**king hairline,’ Logan responded.
Logan, 26, and Jake, 24, are best known as YouTube stars and have only recently started competing in boxing.
The duo began mocking 44-year-old Mayweather for his age, before things quickly turned physical when Jake Paul pulled off the boxing legend’s cap.

‘One of Floyd’s 30 bodyguards got a clean shot on me in the eye,’ the amateur boxer claimed.
