Jake Paul Being Told To 'Be Quiet' At Mayweather Fight Viewed Almost 1 Million Times

A clip of Jake Paul being told to be quiet as he shouted during the Logan Paul and Floyd Mayweather boxing match is going viral, after the YouTuber was mocked for claiming his brother defeated the champion boxer.

The younger Paul brother was naturally rooting for his sibling during Sunday's exhibition match in Miami. But his commentary seemed to hamper the enjoyment of other nearby spectators, including comedy duo Desus and Mero, who had no problem telling the influencer to zip it.

The highly anticipated exhibition spectacle match was subsequently labeled a huge disappointment after no real winner was declared. However, amateur Logan Paul managed to go eight rounds against his experienced opponent—even if some fans think he was actually knocked out at one point.

A clip of Jake Paul, which is garnering hundreds of thousands of likes on Twitter, shows the 24-year-old declaring that his brother is winning in Round 5—before being promptly put in his place by comedians Desus and Mero.

"Three rounds to two," Jake Paul can be heard saying. "Logan's up. Logan's up. Logan's beating Floyd Mayweather. Let that sink in."

However, the talk show hosts quickly correct him.

"Be quiet," "you're wrong," and "that's not what we're saying," the announcers are heard telling the internet personality.

However, Jake Paul seemed to not listen and took to Twitter to declare his brother the victor at the end of the winner-less match.

"50-1... HOLY F**K... MY BROTHER JUST BEAT FLOYD MAYWEATHER," he tweeted in a move that saw him roundly mocked.

Another moment from Sunday's clash also went viral on Twitter on Monday morning. It appears to show the 26-year-old unconscious after a direct hit from Mayweather.

Sports account Foot Basket, tweeted the moment with the caption: "Floyd Mayweather actually knocked out Logan Paul, but held him up during the fight to carry it through 8 rounds."

The clip shows an exhausted Paul going limp and slumping onto his opponent after being hit—but Mayweather doesn't let him hit the mat.

However, the official ruling was that there was no official winner, which left a lot of pay-per-view viewers wanting their money back.

The Florida State Boxing Commission had announced the rules for the match prior to the event, which included no official winner being announced at the end.

Interestingly, Logan Paul seemed to question if Mayweather went easy on him after the fight.

"I don't want anyone to tell me anything is impossible ever again," he said. "Everyone has it in them. Floyd Mayweather, it was an honor. You never know with this guy. I'm going to go home thinking: 'Did Floyd let me survive?' This is the coolest thing ever."

Jake Paul previously courted controversy in recent weeks after he was investigated in Puerto Rico for driving on a beach during turtle nesting season.

The incident prompted Puerto Rico's Secretary of Natural and Environmental Resources Rafael Machargo to release a statement confirming that driving on beaches in the area is "prohibited by law to protect the environment and the species that can nest or live on the beaches."

The internet star apologized for the incident.
