Paul, 26, is in tremendous shape ahead of his return to the ring and reckons his hulking physique could prompt Mayweather to think twice about the fight.

During his open workout on Wednesday, the social media star said; “This whole thing is surreal. Everything about it.

"I told my manager and we kind of had an inside joke that until I get in the ring with him, I didn’t think this fight was happening.

“But I think it’s safe to say that I can believe it now. I think it’s happening. It’s fight week.

"I can’t imagine Floyd would back out now, but who knows? Old man fakes an injury. Gets scared of the big kid. I’m excited.”

The 6'2 Paul reckons his size, weight and reach advantages will guide him to victory over the Money man.

🥊MAYWEATHER VS LOGAN PAUL: Where will the fight take place, what TV channel and live stream will it be on?

He said: "I’m not going in there at 155 lbs. I’m not going in there with the fight meaning the entire world to me.

"I have nothing to lose. This whole thing is going to be fun for me. I’m going to play with Floyd, gonna dog him and hit him hard.

“I’m going to break him down physically, mentally, everything.

"I don’t like comparing myself to other guys. As great as they might be, I’m not them.”

Despite being 0-1 as a pro, Paul is adamant he'll become the first man to beat the 44-year-old Mayweather in over 25 years.

He said: “I'm going to knock him out and become the greatest boxer on the planet.

"Then I'm going to retire and not give Floyd the rematch. He doesn't know who he's getting in the ring with.

"He really thinks I'm a YouTuber. He really thinks I'm a fake fighter. I get it.

"Everything that I've portrayed online says the same thing. But we're really about this life now. Floyd underestimating me is going to hurt him, I think.

“If you think about it, this truly is one of the most special, historic events ever.

"You have one of the greatest boxers of our generation, fighting, uh, me.”
