Jake Paul and Floyd Mayweather just went face-to-face and got into it after the YouTube-star-turned-fighter pulled a hat off of Mayweather’s head. No clue why Floyd isn’t rocking his traditional bald look, since he looks homeless. There’s likely a bit of acting here.
So clearly Paul and Mayweather are engaging in a bit of theatre — think more WWE acting than the traditional boxing face-offs. And it’s working, too. All of us are going to watch this event June 6, despite the lies we tell our friends.
I think it’s safe to say that seeing either of these two fighters go down would break the internet. Floyd, who’s been in 50 of these stare offs, was set off by a YouTube star with two-week-old tattoos grabbing his hat? Not a chance in hell.
Jake Paul is already at it on social media:

Only thing we know for certain is that if Paul and Mayweather get in that ring and dance around like a couple ballerinas — celebrity boxing dies. One last video already posted to Jake Paul’s TikTok:
