Floyd Mayweather issued a stark warning to YouTube star Jake Paul after their furious showdown last month — vowing to give him a neck brace if he ever disrespects him again.
Paul got a black eye after stealing Mayweather’s hat during a press conference for the legendary boxer’s fight with his brother Logan earlier this month, sparking angry scenes as ‘Money’ chased him around the room.
The 44-year-old had settled into the internet personality, yelling, “Don’t respect me like that, you don’t know who you’re playing with!” while guards were forced to tear the couple apart.

Ahead of his eight-round exhibition game against Logan on Sunday, Mayweather called Paul “totally disrespectful” and vowed to give him more than just a star if he ever played a prank on him again.
“I’m nothing to play with,” he said as he spoke to Show Time. ‘I’m not one for fun, that’s why you got two black eyes.
“That was totally disrespectful, your nose got f****d and your teeth broke off – stay f*****g with me and next time you’ll get a neck brace.”
Jake Paul — who has reportedly agreed to face former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley in his next fight — has since urged Mayweather about the incident — even selling T-shirts and other merchandise with the words “gotcha hat.”
He won the first three fights of his career, quitting fellow Internet star Ali Escon Gib, former basketball player Nate Robinson and ex-UFC star Ben Askren.
His streak has fueled his desire to take on some high profile fighters – with Tyson Fury’s brother Tommy as a possible opponent.
Despite his tense rivalry with Mayweather, the 50-0 star will face off against his brother Logan – who also took a swipe at him ahead of their highly anticipated showdown in Miami.
Logan called Mayweather a “pipsqueak” and promised it would be “the worst day of his life” as he puts his undefeated record on the line against the avid fighter – who lost the only professional fight of his career to KSI in 2019.

“Floyd Mayweather is so excited to have someone bleed while sparring,” he said in a social media clip.
“He posted the same picture twice in the same day, he’s so excited. Hey champ, you’re not the only person who makes people bleed while sparring. Who are you sparring with bro? You’re sparring garbage.
You squeak. June 6 will be your dog’s worst day of life. I’m gonna make it so hard for you. ‘
Mayweather has only had one exhibition match since his last professional fight in 2017
Former middleweight champion Carl Froch fears Mayweather risks ruining his entire legacy if he suffers a shocking loss to Paul, and insists he could make a mockery of his career if Paul causes him trouble.
But the veteran fighter is unconcerned about the showdown, claiming he has “no strategy” and will “choose” which round to knock him out on.
He told Bar stool Sport: ‘No strategy, I just have to show up. If I want it to go a round, it goes a round. If I want it to be two, (it will go) two. It’s all up to me. ‘
Mayweather ended his flawless professional career with a win over Conor McGregor in an epic crossover fight in 2017, before returning to action by riding to victory the following year against kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa.
