After brawling with Floyd Mayweather, Jake Paul dunked on him on social media.

Jake Paul got under Floyd Mayweather Jr’s skin like no one has before yesterday. The YouTuber and 3-0 boxer stole a hat from Mayweather’s head yesterday causing a brawl and an irate Mayweather to scream that he wanted to kill Paul.

Mayweather, who is boxing Paul’s older brother Logan Paul in June, appeared the angriest we’ve ever seen him yesterday. And Paul seems to be loving every minute of it.

After yesterday’s blow up ‘Problem Child’ took to his home-turf (social media) to mercilessly troll Mayweather, though he did show some signs of respect (to the Mayweather bodyguard who landed a good punch on him during the brawl).

“Honestly have had 3 easy fights as a pro so been itching for some real action,” wrote Paul — who changed his screen name to GOTCHA HAT in reference to what he chirped when he stole Mayweather’s cap.

Paul also uploaded a video of he and Mayweather in happy times, with Mayweather joking that he was Paul’s trainer and manager. “This didn’t age well,” captioned Paul.

Paul has also started selling merch to memorialize this incident. Right now you can buy a ‘gotcha hat’ hat from his official website. Paul likes that phrase so much he even decided to get it tattooed on his leg. He posted video of him getting inked on Instagram.

Say what you want about Paul’s skill in the boxing ring, but he is quickly proving himself to be an elite shit-stirrer, especially when it comes to getting MMA and boxing figures to lose their cool.

Recently, at UFC 261, Paul elicited an angry confrontation out of Daniel Cormier (video here). He’s also gone back and forth with UFC welterweight champ Kamaru Usman online.

Last time out Paul demolished Ben Askren at Triller Fight Club. With how well that event reportedly did, it’s almost certain that we will see Paul box someone else he’s likely to beat in the near future.
