Logan feared Mayweather would get someone to "shoot him" after Jake’s hat prank

Logan Paul admits he feared the worst when Floyd Mayweather threatened to kill brother Jake for stealing his hat last month.

Paul is gearing up for an exhibition bout against Mayweather in Miami on Sunday night, which will be only the third time he has competed in the ring.

He is set to face the boxing legend over six rounds at the Hard Rock Stadium, with both men wearing 10oz gloves and knockouts permitted.

The Paul brothers have seemingly got under Mayweather's skin like never before in the build-up to this exhibition, triggering a furious reaction from him at last month's press conference.

Whilst in attendance at his brother's event, Jake squared up to Mayweather and exchanged unpleasantries before stealing his hat, which did not go down well.

The former multi-weight world champion lost his cool and tried to attack Jake, sparking a chaotic brawl as security desperately tried to intervene.

Mayweather could then be heard shouting: "When I catch you, motherf*****, I'll kill you motherf*****! You crazy?!

"I don't know who the f*** he thinks he's playing with, but I don't play no motherf****** games!

"I'll f*** you up! I don't play no motherf******* games."

And ahead of Sunday's exhibition, Paul has admitted he took Mayweather's death threat very seriously.

The 26-year-old said in an interview with The Times: "Probably the only time I’ve been scared in my adult life is when Jake took Floyd’s hat and I was afraid he was gonna get shot or something.

"Or I was gonna get shot trying to protect him.

"When a man with the resources that Floyd Mayweather has, says, ‘I’m gonna kill that motherf*****,’ that’s a death threat.

"Security goes up. [People get] Jake and I confused all the time. So if it’s Jake’s problem, it’s now my problem too."
