Floyd Mayweather claims he has no strategy for his fight against Logan Paul next month and believes all he needs to do to win is show up.
Boxing legend Mayweather will face YouTube star Paul in an exhibition bout in Miami on June 6 and is expected to handily defeat his inexperienced opponent at the pay-per-view event.
Mayweather is 50-0 as a professional with wins over Manny Pacquiao, Canelo Alvarez and Oscar De La Hoya, and has been criticised for taking the matchup with Paul, who is 0-1 as a professional.
And he has claimed that he no concern for strategy when he faces Paul, who bookies have priced as a 12/1 underdog despite his considerable size and reach advantage.
"[I have] no strategy," he told Barstool Sports . "I've just got to show up. If I want it to go one round, it'll go one round. If I want it to go two, [it'll go] two. It's all up to me."
The pair went face to face for the first time earlier this month at a media event, which descended into chaos when Jake Paul instigated an altercation with the former pound-for-pound great.
Paul has since claimed that the brothers have increased their security significantly after a 'death threat' from Mayweather in the heat of the skirmish which saw the younger Paul banned from the event.
Despite the apparent discrepancy in boxing ability, Paul is taking the fight very seriously, moving from his California mansion to a secluded Puerto Rico training base with coach Milton Lacroix.
He was recently joined there by brother Jake, who is a 3-0 boxing pro and is gearing up to return to the ring later this year after signing a deal with Showtime Boxing in the US.
The fight is scheduled to be broadcast on Sky Sports Box Office for a price of £16.95 and will feature an undercard including the boxing debut of NFL star Chad 'Ochocinco' Johnson and a highly-anticipated rematch between Badou Jack and Jean Pascal.
Light-heavyweight world champion Pascal has trained with Paul, and was reportedly impressed with what he saw from the social media star.
He told Radio Canada: "The reason Logan Paul has all my respect is that right now he's moved his whole camp to Puerto Rico and he is training with me there.
"I did sparring with him and I can tell you that he impressed me, for a beginner he is very good. He is very agile. He is versatile."
