Paul and younger brother Jake, 24, have been making their mark in boxing since reaching out to the sweet science in 2018, with Jake set to fight former UFC champion Tyron Woodley in his fourth professional bout this summer.

Jake has been linked to a feud with Tommy Fury, the younger brother of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson, although the American has rejected the Brit’s credentials to face him.

And Logan has revealed how Fury senior reached out to him via social media to offer up a family fight between Fury and Paul, in which the Gypsy King would go up against the 26-year-old, while Tommy would meet Jake.

“I’m so ready for Floyd, but one boxer I don’t want to fight is Tyson Fury,” the American said ahead of his eight-round expo this weekend.

“He threw me in my DMs and said my brother can fight Tommy Fury and I can fight him.

“But I was like, no, I pass.”

Paul is expected to receive a huge reward for his clash with Mayweather, the self-proclaimed king of pay-per-view.

The American was blown away by the attention that came to his fight on Sunday, but remains convinced he has what it takes to deliver a massive shock and beat Mayweather.

“This whole thing is just so crazy, we’ve already defied the odds,” he said. “When my manager asked if I wanted to fight Floyd Mayweather, I just laughed.

“But I’ll never laugh at him again. I can’t believe all this, but I’m determined to put on a show.

“They may say it’s an exhibition, but I’m ready to fight. I really believe people will be surprised at my skills.

“I’m that guy, the guy who does something no one else thinks he can do. I’ve been that way all my life, I’m here to achieve the impossible. Sunday evening will be an extension of that.’
