Every advantage YouTuber Logan Paul has over icon Floyd Mayweather for fight

Logan Paul will have favourable advantages over Floyd Mayweather when they go head-to-head in 2021.

The YouTuber has earned a lucrative fight against the 43-year-old, who won 15 major titles across five different weight classes, after a feud on social media.

Despite losing in his only professional bout against Brit KSI, the 25-year-old believes he is ready to shock the world thanks to his physical advantages.

With the news that knockouts will be encouraged in their exhibition meeting, Daily Star Sport takes at look at the areas in which the underdog has a chance to get the upper hand.

Despite his lack of experience, Paul has a height advantage of six inches over Mayweather, and could aim for fast start due to his opponent’s long break from competitive boxing.

In addition, Paul is four stone heavier than his opponent, which has been mentioned by CEO of Fanmio, Solomon Engel – who has organised the bout.

He told The Sun earlier this week: "This is a real fight. And whoever wins, wins. Certainly there could be a knockout, yes.”

Before adding: ”But, Logan does have some size difference, he's many inches taller, many pounds heavier.

“When you look at size and how that could affect the match, there's really no telling what the outcome could be. I do think that it will be competitive because Floyd has an incredible amount of skill and he's going to bring that to the table and Logan has size.”

Mayweather, who hasn’t fought professionally since beating Conor McGregor in 2017, did return to the ring for an exhibition against Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa the following year.

Mayweather said last month: "These YouTube girls better find some Barbie dolls to play with cause I’m not the one for the kid games.

“Three years ago a fighter from the UFC said my name and I had to put a muzzle on that b****. Logan Paul can get the same treatment before I go conquer Japan again.”

After Paul had said: “If I caught him. If I caught Floyd with one punch, one punch.

“I would snap the **** in half. You know me, I am eight inches taller. I am 40 lbs heavier.”

His brother Jake then warned Logan by saying: "I don't know.

"Who knows if it's actually going to happen? I don't think anyone really knows."
