Floyd Mayweather and Jake Paul scrap at press conference for Logan Paul fight [VIDEO]

The hype machine for the sideshow bout in Miami took off today. We have the video you know you shouldn’t watch but are going to anyway.

We’re going to keep this as simple as we can. Floyd Mayweather is fighting Logan Paul in Miami on June 6 at Hard Rock Stadium. It’s going to sell plenty of tickets and pay-per-views, and Mayweather (50-0 career) is likely going to end Paul (0-1-1 career, yet to compete against an actual boxer) in the middle of the ring.

But that’s not why you’re here. You’re here because you want to stare at the car wreck on the side of the Florida Turnpike that happened today at the pre-fight press conference. Dear reader, we are here in service to you. Straight from Miami Gardens to your desktop, here’s all the good video we could find.

Here’s the best one we could find from Brendan Tobin of 790 The Ticket in Miami, former radio home of DraftKings newest signees Dan Le Batard & Stugotz, and we really need the Shipping Container to broadcast live from this fight because that would be amazing.

Floyd said he’d fight both Logan and Jake Paul in the same night. Then the younger brother Jake steps in, accepts any potential challenge, and steals Mayweather’s hat. Chaos, cursing, and shaky camera angles ensue. Here are other follow-up videos around it because we are a full-service website.

If there’s a boxing commission anywhere that would allow someone to fight twice in one evening, it’s the sunburned & lawless sauna known as Florida. And we’ll gladly take Money Mayweather for our net worth if it ever comes to pass.

But give these guys credit as they got the hype they wanted around the fight because much of this went viral on social media, and we’re happily accepting the click you just gave us by writing about it.

Today’s event was so staged we wouldn’t be surprised if Vince McMahon was in Gorilla Position, but it clearly got the job done. A good time was had by all.
