Logan Paul is champing at the bit for his exhibition bout with Floyd Mayweather – but there’s one fighter the YouTuber doesn’t want to face.

Speaking at the media day ahead of his match on Saturday, the 26-year-old claimed Tyson Fury wants to set up a mega-fight between the pair.

World heavyweight champion Fury has been playing up the prospect of a clash between his Love Island brother Tommy and Logan’s brother Jake.

And according to Logan, Fury even offered himself up as bait in a bid to get the four outspoken fighters in the ring together on the same card.

“One boxer I don't want to fight? Tyson Fury”, said Paul.

“Tyson pitched me this idea, he sent me a DM and was like 'yo, Jake could fight Tommy and you could fight me', I was like 'pass'!”

Paul might have baulked at the prospect of facing the elder Fury, but he’s not holding back about his chances against 50-0 Mayweather on Saturday.

In an interview with Mauro Ranallo during the Bellator 259 broadcast last month, Paul claimed he would quite literally take Pretty Boy’s head off.

He said: “I think I’m going to go in there and decapitate him in the first round.

“If it doesn’t happen, we’ll go for the second and then the third, and the fourth.

“Who knows it could go the distance, but it’s going to be a f***ing show regardless.”

The bookmakers don’t agree, with Mayweather fancied to extend his unbeaten record at the expense of Paul.

Meanwhile, Tommy Fury’s dad John Fury has issued a fresh call-out to Logan’s brother, Jake.
