Logan Paul genuinely thinks he could beat boxing royalty Mike Tyson if the two were to face off inside the ring.
The YouTuber is fresh off the back of his record-breaking bout against boxing great Floyd Mayweather, a spectacle that turned over an insane amount of money and did a million pay-per-view buys.
Granted, no winner was officially declared on the night, but Logan clearly gained a lot of confidence from surviving all eight rounds against 44-year-old Mayweather.
And his belief is so sky high that he now wants a piece of arguably the scariest boxer to ever walk the face of the earth.
"Someone mentioned Mike Tyson, like how funny is it? One great at a time. Or is it like you can only fight one?" Logan said on his Impaulsive podcast.
"My lawyer mentioned it and he was like, 'No, Tyson will rip your head off, you don't stand a chance'.
"I'm like 'bro, I literally just went through all of this, you can't tell me I can't beat Mike Tyson'. Bro, he's old, old."
Former multiple-time heavyweight world champion Tyson only recently made his long-awaited boxing comeback.
Iron Mike's second coming was against fellow legend Roy Jones Jr in December 2020 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
The exhibition bout ended as a draw, but 54-year-old Tyson left the arena in search of more blood after an impressive performance where us fans saw glimpses of his younger self.
Speaking after his return tale, he even admitted he was ready to do battle again as early as 2021.
Well, now could be his chance - and you can probably imagine he'll make light work of a far-smaller YouTuber by the name of Logan.
It appears Logan and Iron Mike are pretty close pals too, so getting a fight signed, sealed and delivered shouldn't be too much hassle in the eyes of the promoters.
I mean, if both of them want it to happen then surely it's doable - right?
After initially predicting that Mayweather would knock Logan out in their bout, Tyson FaceTimed his friend to admit he was wrong before sending his congratulations.
"You kicked his ass. You're bad, I was wrong," Tyson told Logan.
"I'm proud of you, you kicked ass, I'm proud of you. Everybody's talking about you, you're the man.
"You went eight rounds with the greatest of all time, I was telling people they don't want to try that s**t. You got him with those punches."
You know the world (especially boxing) has gone mad when we're talking about a 54-year-old Mike Tyson potentially facing off against a YouTuber who's half his age.
But what's frustrating for us all is that it's hard to deny that you wouldn't pay decent money to see it.
No, definitely not Logan.
Getting to witness Iron Mike bob and weave under the bright lights is what we're really talking about - we couldn't care less who he's fighting.
Take my money.
