Following the game in southern Florida, an altercation occurred involving Mayweather and Paul. It appeared that Paul had only one security guard accompanying him during the incident.
Jake fled the scene quickly after a brief conversation to avoid a physical altercation that might have occurred. Jake, thereafter, spoke about the incident on social media soon after it happened.

“So 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 b***h, ok? You wanna run it one on one, no problem.”
Floyd and Jake have had an issue ever since Paul took a hat off the undefeated boxer’s head during a promotional event for his brother Logan Paul’s fight with Mayweather in May 2021.
Although that may have been the case, the social media response indicated that the pair were aiming to exaggerate their feud to hype up a potential showdown.

Whole thing was staged. It’s typical WWE formula stuff, I can’t believe people don’t see through it by now. https://t.co/rhZNY6bhpn
