LOGAN PAUL has revealed he took Floyd Mayweather’s death threats seriously as he declared he thought he and brother Jake could get SHOT.
Boxing legend Mayweather, 44, reacted furiously after Jake snatched his cap during the press conference last month, which led to a mass brawl.
In the immediate aftermath of the melee that left Jake with a black eye, Mayweather roared: “When I catch you, motherf***er, I’ll kill you motherf***er! You crazy?!
“I don’t know who the f*** he thinks he’s playing with, but I don’t play no motherf***ing games!
“I’ll f*** you up! I don’t play no motherf***king games.”
And Logan – who faces the 1996 Olympic bronze medallist in an exhibition bout at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami on Sunday night – has spoken of how he beefed up his security following the threat.
Speaking to The Times, he said: “Probably the only time I’ve been scared in my adult life is when Jake took Floyd’s hat and I was afraid he was gonna get shot or something.
“Or I was gonna get shot trying to protect him.
“When a man with the resources that Floyd Mayweather has, says, ‘I’m gonna kill that motherf***er,’ that’s a death threat.
“Security goes up. [People get] Jake and I confused all the time. So if it’s Jake’s problem, it’s now my problem too.”

Logan then went on to state how he is happy that his sibling riled up his American compatriot ahead of their dust-up.
He added: “I think fighting an emotional, angry Floyd will be better than fighting a calm, collected, strategic Floyd.
“Part of our shtick is being able to get under people’s skin. We can just annoy people if we snap our fingers. And Jake really got under Floyd’s skin.”
Logan stands to make at least £10m from the contest, while Mayweather could rake it up to £70m.
Mayweather told TMZ: “For the build-up so far, I’ve made something upwards of 30million (US Dollars).”
And asked if he would make more come fight night, he replied with a smile: “Of course, of course.
“(I’ll make) Between $50 and $10million. Not bad for the Mayweather zone.”
