Logan Paul poked fun at Floyd Mayweather just hours after announcing a date for their highly anticipated fight.

The pair are set to go head-to-head at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami on June 6, following months of speculation surrounding a bout.

An initial date of February 20 was previously agreed, though this proposal was scrapped at the start of 2021.

But it has now been officially confirmed that the duo will fight each other, and Paul wasted no time to start the fun and games leading up to this high-profile event.

Sharing a shrunken image of Mayweather on his Twitter, Paul included a caption of '**to scale**' as he aimed an early dig at his opponent.

The YouTube star has only ever fought on one other occasion, losing to fellow online content creator KSI.

Despite suffering defeat, the event itself was considered a great success having generated a total of 1.3 million pay-per-view buys worldwide.

Mayweather, meanwhile, hasn't fought since taking part in an exhibition bout against kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in 2018.

His last fight before that came in 2017 against Conor McGregor in the Notorious' first professional fight.
