The explosive incident occurred shortly after the Miami Heat vs Cleveland Cavaliers basketball game. According to sources, Jake Paul was accompanied by only one security guard and had to make a daring escape before the situation turned ugly. The altercation between Paul and Mayweather stems from their previous encounter during a media event for Logan Paul's fight with the boxing legend, where Paul famously grabbed Mayweather's hat and caused a brawl to break out.

In response to the confrontation, Jake Paul took to social media to share his side of the story, recounting the intense encounter:
"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 bitch, ok?”
In a defiant response, Jake Paul asserted that he's not one to back down from a one-on-one challenge, but he's no fool to engage in a battle against a group of 50. "You wanna run it one on one, no problem. But I'm not dumb. Okay? I'm tough, I don't need to prove my toughness, but I'm not gonna sit there and try to fight 50 dudes," Paul declared confidently.
Despite the heated altercation, Jake Paul remains a sought-after figure in boxing, and his recent loss to Tommy Fury is expected to earn him another lucrative payday.
Meanwhile, Floyd Mayweather announced that he will continue his exhibition matches and take them on tour, proving that the legend still has more fights left in him.
