Things escalated after Jake shouted 'you wanna make it two in one night' to Mayweather. The professional boxer then charged over to the YouTuber and replied: "Yes."

The brawl began when Jake Paul stole Mayweather's hat, leading Mayweather to pursue fighting him. The pair were eventually being separated by their teams.

A member of Mayweather's entourage team did catch Paul, 24, leaving him with a black eye. However, Jake Paul hit back in a less physical way and trolled Mayweather.

Jake Paul taunted Mayweather by opening an online shop to sell merchandise with the slogan 'gotcha hat' printed on the items.

The star even changed his Twitter handle to 'gotcha hat'. He went to the ultimate extreme later on, debuting his 'gotcha hat' tattoo on his leg.

The tattoo also featured an inking of a cap, which was very similar to the one he snatched off of Mayweather's head. The 50-0 boxer was left in a state of fury following the altercation.

After the scuffle, Mayweather was heard shouting: "When I catch you, motherf***er, I'll kill you motherf***er! You crazy?!". He continued: "I don't know who the f*** he thinks he's playing with, but I don't play no motherf***ing games!"

Mayweather was dragged away, and he was heard shouting: "I'll kill that motherf***er."

Jake later took to Twitter to comment on his brawl with Floyd. He wrote: "Honestly have had three easy fights as a pro so been itching for some real action."

"One of Floyd’s 30 bodyguards got a clean shot on me in the eye. RESPECT!!" Jake Paul added.
