Mike Tyson has backed up Logan Paul's claims that Floyd Mayweather wants to kill the YouTuber, by claiming the boxer will 'kill' the YouTuber.
Mayweather hasn't been in an official fight since 2017 but will step in the ring with Paul on Sunday night in an exhibition fight.
Things have become heated at times in the build up, including with Paul's younger brother Jake, and the social media star, who lost his only official professional fight to rival KSI, has claimed that Mayweather is 'trying to kill him.'
That's something that heavyweight boxing legend Mike Tyson certainly thinks could happen, when the pair meet over eight rounds.
"Floyd is going to kill this guy, man," Tyson told Reuters, "Floyd stays in the gym, he's never out of shape. He's going to have so much fun winning this money."
Of course the undefeated former five weight world champion loves making 'money,' after all it is literally his nickname, and the 44-year-old has claimed he's already made $30 million from the upcoming fight.
"I'm fighting a YouTuber who thinks he's a real fighter and I'm getting crazy money for it - I've already made $30m just building up to this fight," he bragged earlier in the week.
"This is not a real fight for me, it's a real fight for him.
"I retired from boxing, but I didn't retire from entertainment and I didn't retire from making money."
Mayweather, whose last fight was against Conor McGregor but has since fought Tenshin Nasukawa in a similar exhibition, is already looking past one Paul brother to another.
Jake, who is three fights against non boxers into his boxing career, is set to take on former UFC champion Tyron Woodley later this year.
After the 24-year-old stole Mayweather's hat during a press conference, kids ey, it's no surprise to see the boxer offer to help Woodley train ahead of the fight.
The boxer claimed he wanted to help the former cruiserweight UFC champ and then Woodley confirmed that he's had a text and they've since discussed it.
He'd be mad not to take the advice of a man with 50 wins and no losses inside the ring, especially as he makes his own debut in the sport and hopes to go better than Ben Askren.
