Logan Paul says he and his brother are taking no chances after Floyd Mayweather’s “I’ll kill you” threat … telling TMZ Sports they now have security watching them “at all times.”
Floyd dropped the menacing warning to Jake Paul after the younger Paul bro famously stole the boxer’s hat during a confrontation at the Logan-Mayweather pre-fight news conference in Miami last week.
Most considered it an empty threat — after all, nobody really thinks Floyd’s going to commit murder over a baseball cap — but Logan tells us he’s taking absolutely no chances.
As for why — the 26-year-old YouTube star explained it this way …
“Dawg, when you have a guy with the resources and the wealth that Floyd Mayweather has and the connection and the network and he’s saying s***, ‘I’mma kill that motherf***er’ — kill?! Death?! You’re gonna kill my brother over a f***ing hat?! Yo, we take that s*** seriously man!”
Logan says the Paul bros now have bodyguards with or around them “everywhere at all times.”
Logan, though, says he and his brother will NOT be going to cops or filing anything in the court system over the threat — the older Paul brother said that idea is straight-up “bitch s***, bro.”
There’s more … Logan also says there’s a chance he makes $20 MILLION for fighting Floyd — and he also explained why a fight card that would feature both him and Jake vs. Mayweather would never happen.
By the way, Jake also made an appearance during our interview with Logan … and watch the clip — “gotcha hat” clearly ain’t going anywhere anytime soon!
Logan Paul Says Mayweather Brawl Was Very Real, ‘That S*** Is Not Funny’
Logan Paul insists the dust-up between his brother and Floyd Mayweather was NOT a scripted stunt … telling TMZ Sports, “I f**king wish that wasn’t real.”
“I wish it was staged,” Logan added … “That s**t is not funny. It’s not fun for anyone.”
As we previously reported, Jake Paul took over the media event at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami on Thursday and got right into Floyd’s face … stealing his baseball cap and touching off a violent altercation.
Floyd was PISSED — chasing after Jake while screaming that he was going to “kill” the YouTube superstar.
We spoke with Logan after the incident and he told us the whole situation is giving him even MORE motivation to flatten Mayweather when they step in the ring on June 6.
“That s**t just got personal by default. It was supposed like a cute little press conference …come together, get people excited for the fight. Not people talking about killing people! What the f**k!?”
We asked Logan if he had a message to Floyd … and of course, Logan delivered.
“This is gonna be the craziest f**king evening to ever take place in the history of combat sports.”
“My message to Floyd is this … we’re gonna get you that hat back, Floyd.”
