This incident took place on Wednesday night after an NBA game between Miami Heat and Cleveland Cavaliers at the FTX Arena.

Paul was suddenly approached by Mayweather's team, which included several of his security, outside the arena.

The YouTuber-turned-boxer decided to jog away before the incident escalated. Paul was quick to respond to tell his side of the story. He suggested that he did not need to stick around and "prove his toughness". "Floyd Mayweather and 50 dudes pull up out of nowhere, out of like some side alley, waiting for me outside of the stadium, and they're like, 'So what's up? So what's all that talk now?'" Paul claimed in an Instagram video. "I'm like first of all, what did I say to you Floyd? I just took your hat and you're still mad about it? Come on, bro. And then 50 dudes literally start surrounding me to try to jump me, and I'm out that b*tch, OK? "Floyd, you want to run it one-on-one, no problem, but I'm not dumb. I'm tough, I don't need to prove my toughness. ... I'm not going to sit there and try to fight 50 dudes. ... You're mad because I took your hat; are you serious? Move on."

Paul later took to Twitter to call Mayweather out for a "real fight".

"Floyd will not see me 1 on 1 in a real fight," Paul tweeted.

"That's a fact. His team has hit my team numerous times to do one of his 'exhibitions'. Now he ambushes me. Come see me in the ring, real fight, no exhibition robbing fans bullsh*t." 'The Problem Child' is coming off his first boxing loss as he was beaten by split decision against Tommy Fury last month in Saudi Arabia. Mayweather is continuing to fleece the public with his exhibition bouts. His latest came in a half-full O2 Arena in London against reality TV star Aaron Chalmers. The 46-year-old has since confirmed that he plans to go on a "world tour", with five more exhibitions planned for this year.
