Logan Paul has the chance to spring one of the biggest shocks in combat sports history when he takes on Boxing titan Floyd Mayweather in Miami this coming weekend.
The 26-year-old uploaded a video to his YouTube channel to give an insight into how he has been training for the bout, and displayed one novel tactic.
The clip shows Paul keeping himself fit with a series of jogs along the beach near his Puerto Rico camp, skipping rope as well as the star working with speed & punch bags before he is seen shadow boxing at pace while blindfolded.
The eyes of the Boxing world will be on the divisive star come the early hours of Sunday morning (UK time), with plenty hoping for an underdog victory in Paul's favour.
Speaking on the True Geordie Podcast, Paul sent a shot in the direction of Mayweather, belittling the power of his punch as the mind games between the pair are now well and truly underway.
"That's what makes me laugh when Floyd says 'June 6 I'm gonna knock you out', with all due respect, Mr Mayweather, what the f*** do you know about knocking people out? It's been a decade. It's been a decade since you knocked out Victor Ortiz in whatever b******* that was."
In a separate interview with Showtime, Paul went so far as to openly reveal his game-plan for beating Mayweather on the night.
"There's going to be two phases that Floyd has in this fight," he said. "First is the realisation that he might be in over his head, the realisation that the kid he's standing across from isn't a fake fighter, he's not just a YouTuber he's been doing this for some time now.
"Then when he realises that he might have to work a little harder than he thought and he's not getting the ins that he wants then he'll hit desperation.
"When I see in his face that Floyd's desperate and he's broke then I'll know I've got him and that's when he's going to lose."
