Now, as the fight nears, Mayweather has made it clear about how he feels about Jake Paul. As per Mayweather, he is ready to put Jake in a neck brace if he ends up acting up. Their recent interaction at the press conference turned violent, and the boxing icon ended up punching Paul. "I'm nothing to play with," Mayweather said while speaking with Showtime. "I ain't one for the jokes, that's why you [Jake Paul] ended up with two black eyes."

He added that if this continues, Jake will end up in a neck brace. At the press conference, Paul was the one who approached Mayweather before they ended up in an exchange of words. Mayweather also declared that he will defeat the brothers in one night. Paul ended up snatching the boxing legend's cap, which escalated later on. 

The upcoming fight will be held over eight rounds for three minutes. "It's not an exhibition," Logan said. "What exhibition is eight three-minute rounds? You know, this is a fight. If Floyd didn't want to rip my head off before my brother took his hat, now he's trying to kill me".
