YouTuber-cum-boxer Logan Paul is set to face none other than the legendary Floyd Mayweather for a super exhibition fight on 20th February next year. However, just after a week of its official announcement, Logan fuels a fire against his next adversary- a cheeky poke at Mayweather’s height.

Fifteen times world champion Floyd Mayweather (50-0, 27 KOs) is 5 ft 8 in (173 cm) tall and has dominated five weight classes from super featherweight up to light middleweight.

Logan Paul in comparison towers at 6 ft 2 in (188 cm) and made his professional debut in the cruiserweight division against fellow YouTuber KSI on 9th November last year at the STAPLES Center.
