Logan Paul says 'I'm a dangerous fighter' after three years of boxing training ahead of Floyd Mayweather exhibition

LOGAN PAUL believes his three years of boxing training has made him 'a dangerous fighter' as he prepares to face Floyd Mayweather.

The YouTuber is expected to fight boxing legend Mayweather in a pay-per-view exhibition this year.

They were initially signed to box on February 20, but it has been postponed to allow fans to attend.

It has given Paul more time to train for what most would consider mission impossible.

But after one year out the ring, he is feeling more confident than ever after dedicating himself to the sweet science.

Paul, 26, told ET's Denny Directo: "I feel so dangerous. I feel so confident.

"I don't know if I've ever felt more confident about anything in my life. I'm a dangerous fighter, man.

"I've been doing it for three years now – no one's seen me fight for over a year, it's all I've been doing."

Paul has boxed only twice before, both against online rival KSI.

The first was a draw in a white collar bout in 2018, but when the two turned professional a year later, KSI, 27, won by scrappy split-decision.


He is yet to fight since, but has continued to train from his Los Angeles mansion, where he has a ring in his back garden.

The leap from fighting fellow novice KSI to all-time great Mayweather is an unprecedented one.

But Paul claimed he can go from winless beginner to 'the greatest fighter of all time' with one unthinkable upset.

He said: "You learn a lot when you lose. I would almost be more afraid of the man who's lost and is determined and also has nothing to lose.

"Think about it, I don't have anything to lose.

“I lose against Floyd Mayweather, who cares? Right? You fought Floyd Mayweather.

"I win against Floyd Mayweather, I'm the greatest fighter of all time. There's a lot of freedom in that."

Mayweather, 44, closed out his career officially in 2017, stopping ex-UFC champion Conor McGregor, 32, in ten rounds.

But he returned a year later for an exhibition in Japan, wiping out featherweight kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in just two minutes.

He will lace up the gloves for a similar spectacle against Paul, who joked about the 50-0 icon's legacy.

He laughed: "I'm going against Floyd Mayweather, and they're saying he's pretty good, this guy.

"They're saying he's never lost. These are the rumours. I don't know if I believe them, but allegedly."
