Logan Paul Reveals Tyson Fury Offered To Fight Him After Floyd Mayweather

Logan Paul has revealed that Tyson Fury offered to fight him in his next bout after Floyd Mayweather Jr.

The YouTuber is set to go head-to-head with the undefeated boxing icon tonight, and seems very confident of victory.

However, the 26-year-old says the Gypsy King has also been in touch recently, saying that he would be up for getting in the ring too.

But it would seem that Paul doesn't feel quite ready for that kind of challenge.

Discussing the prospect of taking on the heavyweight champion of the world, he said: "I am so ready for Floyd but one boxer I don't want to fight is Tyson Fury.

"He pitched me in my DMs and said my brother can fight Tommy Fury and I can fight him.

"But I was like, 'No, I'll pass.'"

I mean, you'd imagine he might have demonstrated this kind of caution about his latest opponent - Mayweather has gone 50 fights undefeated, having taken on the likes of Manny Pacquiao, Oscar De La Hoya and Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez in the process.

Speaking ahead of their exhibition bout at Miami's Hard Rock Stadium, Paul told reporters that he was ultra-confident of ending Money's incredible streak.

He said: "There's a moment that goes through every fighter's mind. Everyone we spar, everyone Jake's beat.

"When we hit them, they realise, 'Oh, he might not just do YouTube. This guy really put his heart and soul in this.'

"I hit hard. I think you're going to see Floyd's eyes light up, the first time I hit him."

However, that doesn't mean that we shouldn't expect fireworks.

That's because knockouts are still very much in play. Should one fighter knock out the other, they won't be declared as the absolute 'winner' but they obviously will be judged to have won the fight - if not by judges, then certainly by everyone else.

On top of the fact that no official winner will be read out at the end - perhaps an insurance policy for both fighters, as Mayweather has a record to protect, and Paul has his pride - the other rules make for some interesting reading, too.

Knockouts, or - at least - the referee's decision to stop the fight, will be judged at the referee's decision, although you'd imagine that the fighters' corners could also still throw the towel in or pull their fighter out.

As this is technically a professional fight, neither fighter will be wearing any headgear, which you'd expect, and both fighters will wear gloves weighing 12 ounces.
