Logan Paul is already in sensational shape ahead of his lucrative boxing showdown with Floyd Mayweather on June 6.
The YouTube star is set to face Mayweather in Miami this summer after seeing an original February date fall through.
Despite the date change, Paul has still been ramping up his training out in Puerto Rico as he prepares to lock horns with one of the greatest fighters in history.
He is already looking ripped one month out from the contest, uploading a shirtless photo on Instagram over the weekend and writing the caption: “5 weeks until I beat @floydmayweather #June6”.
Paul’s bout with Mayweather will be only the second of his professional boxing career, having come unstuck on his debut against fellow YouTuber KSI back in 2019.
It is believed the American will be raking in around £10million for his date of destiny with ‘Money’, who fittingly claims to be commanding an even bigger purse.
Speaking on the Disruptive Entrepreneur podcast, Mayweather revealed he is set to make £72million for a bout with Paul, which will prove more lucrative than facing a “regular” fighter.
“I can fight a fighter right now and I can guarantee myself $35million (£25m). I can eventually probably make $50million (£36m) for just a regular fight,” he said.

“Or me and Logan Paul can go out, entertain, have fun and make nine figures $100million (£72m) or more.”
Mayweather, who last competed in an exhibition against Japen’s Tenshin Nasukawa in 2018, then continued: “Everybody thinks that 'retired' means at home with your feet up and picking up weight. I prefer to go out, still entertain and have fun.
“Just because I still go out, entertain and have fun doesn't mean that I still wanna fight for 12 rounds.
“I think we've got a six-round exhibition. I think it's gonna be very entertaining for the people. I think people are gonna love it. $35million for 12 rounds or $100million for six rounds – big difference."
