Logan Paul reckons heavyweight world champion Tyson Fury slid into his DMs and offered to fight him - and the YouTuber politely declined.

26-year-old Logan is preparing to go toe-to-toe with arguably one of the greatest boxers to ever live in Floyd Mayweather this weekend.

As for Logan's younger sibling Jake, he's due to take on former UFC champion Tyron Woodley in August but has been trash-talking countless other combat sports athletes on the side, including Tyson Fury's brother Tommy.

Now Logan insists 6-foot-9-inch Tyson Fury has personally reached out to him via social media to try and set up a fight - not just between Jake and Tommy, but between Logan and the 'Gypsy King' too.

"I am so ready for Floyd but one boxer I don't want to fight is Tyson Fury," Logan said.

"He pitched me in my DM's and said my brother can fight Tommy Fury and I can fight him.

"But I was like, I'll pass."

And to be honest, you can't exactly blame him for wanting to duck a boxing great like Fury.

The WBC and Ring magazine champion looks poised for trilogy bout against Deontay Wilder, meaning his big plans for a heavyweight unification clash with fellow compatriot Anthony Joshua have been put on ice.

Now if Logan is telling the truth about this alleged DM from Fury (which he's most likely lying about), then it just goes to show how many fighters are waiting in line to get their hands on the YouTuber.

Just remember, Fury boasts and unblemished, undefeated record of 30-0-1 while Logan has ZERO wins from his single professional bout.

Yet the 'Gypsy King' still wants to shut the Paul brothers up for good - I mean, who can blame him?

"I am that dude, the guy who does the thing no-one else thinks they can do," Logan added.

"That's been me my whole life, I am here to achieve the impossible. Sunday night will be an extension of that.

"This whole thing is just so crazy, we have already defied the odds. When my manager asked if I wanted to fight Floyd Mayweather I laughed.

"I can't believe it, this is f**king crazy. The bell is going to ring and I'm going to to say out loud 'this is crazy' and then put on a show.

"They can say anything they like but I am ready to fight. People don't realise that I've actually gotten good at this sport and I really do believe that people will be surprised at my skills."
