The pair recently had their weigh in, where 26-year-old Logan came in a whopping 34 pounds heavier than the five-weight world champion, despite Mayweather being the heaviest he’s ever been.

Most would expect Mayweather and Logan to be exchanging heated conversations in the run-up to their fight, but it’s been Jake who’s been really getting under the boxer’s skin.

During Logan and Mayweather’s press day last month, Jake got into an altercation with Mayweather, which saw the YouTuber get punched by Mayweather after stealing the 44-year-old’s hat. Jake was banned from attending tonight’s fight as a result.

While Mayweather is yet to prove victorious against the eldest of the Paul brothers, he’s already lining up Jake as his next opponent.

When asked who he’s going to be fighting next, Mayweather told TMZ Sports, ‘We don’t know what the future holds, but we’ll just see. After Logan, probably Jake. We don’t know, we’ll see.’

To me, it’s a win-win but I’m in a no-win because if I knock him out fast in the 1st round, they’re gonna be like, ‘Aw man this wasn’t worth it.’ If I let it go a few rounds and drag it out, they’re gonna be like, ‘Aw man, he let a YouTuber hang in it for a few rounds.’ But, it is what it is. We’re gonna have some fun Sunday.

Meanwhile, Logan said ‘the beautiful thing’ about their fight is that he has ‘already won’ because he’s getting to fight the five-weight world champion.

Tonight’s fight is only available to watch via pay-per-view.

Regarding Logan, Floyd says he's aware people think it's a no-win situation for him ... but he doesn't care. "To me, it's a win-win but I'm in a no-win because if I knock him out fast in the 1st round, they're gonna be like 'Aw man this wasn't worth it.' If I let it go a few rounds and drag it out, they're gonna be like 'Aw man, he let a YouTuber hang in it for a few rounds'. But, it is what it is. We're gonna have some fun Sunday." TMZSports.com As for Floyd's future, Mayweather says nothing is set in stone -- but "After Logan, probably Jake. We don't know. We will see."
