Online celebrity Logan Paul has shown off an imposing physique days out from his heavily anticipated boxing match against Floyd Mayweather.

The popular YouTube star is hoping to be the first to stop the as yet undefeated Mayweather for the first time in his career - even if it is only in an exhibition.

Paul, 26, has just two other fights under his belt - a win and a loss against fellow YouTube personality KSI, which came back in 2019.

He stands to earn a massive $26 million payday from the Mayweather fight win or lose, and reportedly plans to give pay per view buyers value for money against the legendary boxers, despite his lack of experience.

Miami's 5th St. Gym has been where Paul has been building up his boxing acumen, while his workouts focused on getting him through eight three-minute rounds.

The rules for the pair's June 6 bout were revealed on Thursday, with no judges to be in attendance or winner to be declared, most crucially.

Knockouts and TKO stoppages will be allowed, with headgear not allowed and each fighter to wear 12 ounce gloves.

The bout will no be recorded on Mayweather's official record, which stands at 50-0, thanks to its status as an exhibition.

The fight is set to be held at Miami's Hard Rock Stadium, after an earlier deal to host the bout in Dubai fell through.

Mayweather in $157 million lawsuit ahead of Logan Paul fight

Mayweather is reportedly suing events company PAC Entertainment Worldwide to the tune of AUD $157 million, due to a breach of contract around the upcoming fight.

According to a report from TMZ Sports, Mayweather Promotions has filed a lawsuit against PAC after the Dubai location fell through, with the fight now set for Miami's Hard Rock Stadium.

The report claims Mayweather's agreed to a partnership with PAC in the understanding that the events company had “numerous business contacts in Dubai” and “the financial wherewithal and capability to host a fight of this magnitude.”

Mayweather's team was reportedly promised a series of payments totalling $141m in the lead-up to the fight, with the first $38m chunk due to be paid to him on March 25.

The boxing great's team claims the first payment never arrived and that PAC also breached contract by failing to deliver on the Dubai venue.

Representatives for Mayweather claim in the lawsuit that any breach could not only see the boxer's team back out of the original deal - as evidenced by the Miami venue change - but also be entitled to the full $141m promised to them.

The 44-year-old boxer's last two fights saw him pocket more than $380 million, with the 2017 win over UFC legend Conor McGregor netting Mayweather around $373m.

He also reportedly took home around $9 million for an infamous New Year's Eve exhibition bout against Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in 2018.
