Floyd Mayweather and Jake Paul brawl
"Embarrassing" is how UFC star Conor McGregor described the brawl between Floyd Mayweather and Jake Paul at Thursday's press conference for Jake Paul's older brother Logan Paul's fight against the former world champion Floyd Mayweather.
The brawl kicked off after Jake Paul, who recently beat Ben Askren, stole Floyd Mayweather's hat, which escalated into a massive fight, with security having to restrain Mayweather who took it personally.
Conor McGregor addressed the brawl in an Instagram post aimed at Leonard Ellerbe, the CEO of Mayweather Promotions, and the man behind Floyd Mayweather's business decisions. McGregor's post read:
“Hey Leonard Ellerbe, what the f*** is Floyd at?
“The kid curled up, didn’t fight back once, and Floyd is still running around acting the tough guy.
What does Conor McGregor think about Floyd Maywather vs. Logan Paul?
Unsurprsingly the mouthy UFC star also had more to say about the exhibition fight between Logan Paul and Floyd Mayweather.
“The kid actually just pulled this shambles of a situation Floyd is in out of the drain for him. He should thank him. It’s embarrassing!
“Pro to pro it’s embarrassing. He will not scratch $10million for this fight and he knows it. It was cancelled once already.
“The world is watching this on Twitter. He’d fight a half decent pro and command $20million upwards, yet it’s this s***.
“Whatever way you spin this, it’s sad. Fight someone for real, on your record, or f*** off mate. Slap head!”
Jake Paul apologizes to Floyd Mayweather before taunting him
After Jake Paul stole Floyd Mayweather's hat at the Mayweather vs. Logan Paul press conference many wondering if he'd say sorry for the act. In some ways he did but the apology was all a taunt to wind up Floyd Mayweather more.
Jake Paul said "Hey, after like thinking about it, I just want to say I apologise for my behaviour and I'm sorry,"
"I shouldn't have acted that way... I'm just kidding."
Not only that but Jake Paul then took things even further by getting a tattoo saying Gotcha Cap and a picture of a baseball cap. He then changed his username on Twitter to Gotcha Cap before releasing a set of baseball caps with Gotcha Cap written on. It seems like this was planned all along by Jake Paul and he's given us another marketing masterclass in this war of words against Floyd Mayweather.
