The boxing champion and YouTube star came to blows on Thursday 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 shot back.
Logan, 26, and Jake, 24, only recently started competing in boxing after shooting to fame as YouTubers – but that didn’t stop them from facing off with undefeated pro-fighter Mayweather.
The brothers began mocking the 44-year-old for his age, before things quickly turned physical when Jake pulled off the boxing legend’s cap.
Several punches were thrown between Mayweather and Jake before members of their entourages joined in the melee.
‘I’ll kill you, mother f*****!’ Mayweather bellowed at his amateur adversary.
Bodyguards were eventually forced to break up the fight, but not before Jake was left with a minor injury.
‘One of Floyd’s 30 bodyguards got a clean shot on me in the eye,’ Jake claimed after the incident.

Mayweather boasts a 50-0 professional record in the ring, with his last professional fight taking place in 2017 when he beat UFC star Conor McGregor in a highly-publicized bout.
Logan Paul, on the other hand, has only competed in one professional fight, in which he lost to fellow YouTuber KSI.
But despite Mayweather’s pedigree, he is reportedly not taking any chances on going down to a YouTube star.
The boxing legend has reportedly told his 29-year-old girlfriend Anna Monroe to leave his multi-million dollar Vegas mansion as he knuckles down to prepare for his upcoming fight.
Mayweather asked Monroe – lead dancer at his Las Vegas club Girl Collection – to get off the scene while he works off the ring rust and prepares to return from retirement once again, according to The Sun.
Logan is certainly not short on confidence, recently claiming he will be able to beat Mayweather in the bout.
Speaking on his podcast IMPAULSIVE last month, Logan was asked by co-host George Janko to rate his chances of beating Mayweather out of ten.
‘Ten, yeah,’ Logan said. ‘I can see how that sounds ridiculous.
‘But guess what Georgey? My whole f***ing life is ridiculous. None of this s*** makes sense.
‘Everyone’s always told me my whole life you know, the things I’ve accomplished weren’t possible until I did them.
‘The fact that I even got a fight with Floyd Mayweather was impossible. Oh, then it happened. So, like man, I’ve heard it all.
