Boxing legend Mike Tyson is under no false illusions that Youtuber Logan Paul may stand the slightest chance against the undefeated Floyd Mayweather.
The Youtuber, 25, has secured a deal to fight the undefeated 43-year-old Mayweather, who is in some circles regarded as the finest boxer to have ever stepped into the ring.
Paul has no real fighting experience, and has just one professional bout to his name after facing fellow Youtuber ‘KSI’ at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles 13 months ago, in which he was defeated.
