"I'm going to take a little bit of a sabbatical from the YouTube stuff," he said.

"I kicked the ball off last year and now everybody is trying to do it."

Hearn added: "I actually said to Floyd on Saturday night when he was at the AJ fight, 'you need to be careful, this is a very, very tough fight you have with Logan Paul.'

"And then he asked me: 'are you serious?' and then I said: 'No I'm not.'"
