Floyd Mayweather and KSI are reportedly in talks to do a tag team fight against Manny Pacquiao and Salt Papi soon. Moreover, these four titans in combat sports come from very different origins and disciplines before entering the ring. Pacquiao and Mayweather already faced off and are two of the most celebrated boxers of our time. On the other hand, Papi and KSI built incredible careers thanks to their prior social media presence and hustling that led them where they are today. Overall, it's quite a representative pool of what's happening with boxing and combat sports in general today, as sad as that may make some people.
That being said, if it goes down, this will be an incredibly exciting display regardless of each fighter's journey. Sure, controversial figures like Jake Paul inspire a lot of rage in the boxing community, but others also elevated the sport to a wider audience. In fact, Mayweather himself had a confrontation with Paul in Miami on Thursday (March 9). They have a long and intense rivalry, and things got so heated that the social media influencer ran away. Later, he gave his side of the story on Instagram.
Mayweather, Pacquiao, Salt Papi & KSI To Face Off In Tag Team Fight
"So I'm leaving the Miami Heat game," Paul explained. "Floyd Mayweather and 50 dudes pull up out of nowhere, out of like some side alley, waiting for me outside the stadium, and they're like, 'So what's up? What's all that talk now?' 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 jump me, and I'm out that b***h, ok?"
However, according to a source close to Floyd, Jake Paul had much more to worry about than his robbery antics. "Jake crossed the line," they said. "This wasn't about grabbing a hat. This was about Jake's comments to Floyd about Floyd's deceased family member and other below-the-belt inappropriate behavior." Fortunately, if this news is true, Mayweather will have much better things to worry about and look forward to than his Jake Paul battles. Regardless, come back to HNHH for the latest on Floyd Mayweather, Manny Pacquiao, Salt Papi, and KSI.
