Logan Paul is aiming for a stunning victory when he takes on Floyd Mayweather Jr next month.
The YouTube sensation managed to goad Mayweather into an exhibition showdown after months of online taunting, but recently admitted that he thought the official contract offer was a joke.
Although the 25-year-old will go into the bout as one of the biggest underdogs in boxing history, his obvious size and weight advantage will pose Floyd a fresh challenge.
The veteran, 43, who won fifteen major world titles across four weight classes during his 21-year professional career, will need to adapt his game if he is to overcome the ‘veteran’ tactics of his new rival.
Having threatened to ‘snap’ Mayweather in half before the fight was confirmed, Logan will be able to cause some problems according to trainer Daniel Hernandez.
Hernandez, who has been helping out within the camp, told The Sun in December: "Even though he's a beginner he needs to use a lot of veteran tactics, like forearm on the inside, push off, pushing his head down with his other arm.
"He's going to have to use a lot of things he maybe doesn't know yet but hopefully learns very quickly on how to fight like a seasoned pro.
"But you need to be a veteran to do those things, so does he have enough time to learn that? Probably not, but hopefully Logan goes in there confident."
In addition, CEO of Fanmio, Solomon Engel has said: “Logan does have some size difference.
“He's many inches taller, many pounds heavier and when you look at size and how that could affect the match, there's really no telling what the outcome could be.
"I do think that it will be competitive because Floyd has an incredible amount of skill and he's going to bring that to the table and Logan has size.”
With Logan himself saying: “If I caught him. If I caught Floyd with one punch, one punch.
“I would snap the **** in half. You know me, I am eight inches taller. I am 40 lbs heavier.”
The bout is set to go head on February 20, with the venue not yet announced.
