The trash talking has already begun.
And Logan Paul has gone swinging in with absolutely no hesitation.
With his 'special exhibition' bout against Floyd Mayweather pretty much confirmed, the YouTuber wasted no time in engaging in a war of words via social media.
And his first move in the mind games battle involved mocking Mayweather for his height - of course, very original.
The 5-foot-6-inch former world champ has fought in several boxing divisions throughout his decorated career ranging from super featherweight up to light middleweight.
And while taking a fight against a YouTuber is strange enough in itself, perhaps what makes this match-up most intriguing is the height and weight difference.
Mayweather is significantly shorter than the 6-foot-2-inch Paul - something the popular social media personality was on hand to remind everyone of.
The 25-year-old took to Instagram to post a picture of himself looking down on his undefeated opponent.
Paul simply captioned the graphic: "50 and oh my god he's small."
In the short space of time since it was published, the picture has already got over one million likes and countless comments.
But Paul can't take full credit for the hilarious image.
The inspiration behind his post comes from an iconic photograph of Cassius Clay (Muhammad Ali) from 1963.
A legendary photo exists of Clay looking down at six-year-old Patrick Power ahead of his heavyweight title fight against British great Sir Henry Cooper.
Clay went on to win the bout after withstanding the power of "Henry's Hammer", a victory that eventually earned him a shot at Sonny Liston and the heavyweight title - and we all know how that went down.
And while Paul probably doesn't even possess a fraction of the talent that Muhammad Ali had, the American will be praying for a similar outcome in his clash with Mayweather next year.
