What happened between Jake Paul and Floyd Mayweather?

The YouTuber stole Mayweather's hat, he was very unimpressed

Would you steal a cap off the head of a former undefeated ex-champion boxer that had been (pound for pound) ranked as the best boxer in the last twenty-five years by ESPN? Neither would we. 

Jake Paul, however, would. In fact, he did just that. In the middle of a press conference at Hard Rock Stadium, Miami Gardens, Florida. 

When the two men began muscling up to each other during the conference, Paul took the little white cap off Floyd Mayweather's head and said "gotcha cap", several angering Mayweather, and prompting a bit of a brawl. 

The press conference was in relation to the exhibition match between Jake Paul's brother, Logan Paul (also a YouTuber) and Floyd Mayweather which will happen in a pay-per-view event at Hard Rock Stadium on June 6. 

Since the altercation, Jake Paul has mockingly apologised by tweeting "honestly have had 3 easy fights as a pro so been itching for some real action 1 of Floyd’s 30 bodyguards got a clean shot on me in the eye RESPECT!!". 

The 24 year old internet personality also changed his Twitter name to "gotcha cap" and tattooed the same phrase on his leg. 

You can watch the whole thing below, though it does contain a little swearing.
