The 18-year-old Russian, who is thought to have a genetic disorder that stopped him from growing when he was young, has an army of fans including YouTube star Paul who hyped up the online phenom.

Of course, Paul takes on Floyd Mayweather this weekend and he said that he will be channeling his "inner Hasbulla" ahead of his blockbuster exhibition bout.

"I know as long as I channel my inner Hasbulla, the greatest fighter of our time, we are going to get the job done," said Paul.

"I'm channeling him. The fiercest warrior the world has ever seen. We love Hasbulla."

He added: "I want him to walk out with me. Give me Hasbulla!"

Hasbulla returned the compliment, tweeting Paul as he announced his support for him.

He wrote: "I like to thank @LoganPaul for being a fan of Hasbulla as well, and announce that as a Hasbulla community we support him in his fight against Mayweather (You love Hasbulla, we love you)."

As for Paul's clash with Mayweather, he's extremely confident having predicted a knockout victory.

"Exhibition my ass. This is an eight-round fight, three minutes each. 10-ounce gloves," he explained.

"I'm going to knock him out and become the greatest boxer on the planet.

"Then I'm going to retire and not give Floyd the rematch... He doesn't know who he's getting in the ring with.

"He really thinks I'm a YouTuber. He really thinks I'm a fake fighter. I get it.

"Everything that I've portrayed online says the same thing. But we're really about this life now.

"Floyd underestimating me is going to hurt him."
