YouTube sensation Logan Paul recently showcased his boxing skills as he squared off against Floyd Mayweather in an eight-round exhibition match last Sunday. Even though there wasn’t any declared winner due to the set fight rules, Mayweather still dominated every statistical category against Paul as expected.
Nonetheless, the bout between the two personalities still created significant buzz both within the boxing world and on social media. After managing to hold his ground against the undefeated boxer, it is expected that Paul will continue to explore his options and match up against notable individuals inside the squared circle moving forward.
Here are the three individuals that Logan Paul should fight next:
3. Jake Paul
The boxing matches that the Paul brothers have been fighting in are being made to provide entertainment for the fans and earn a big payday for themselves while also generating a ton of attention on social media. What better way to draw millions of viewers than for the two brothers to fight each other and see who the better fighter is among themselves.
Looking back, former world heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko and his brother Vitali, both dominated the division in the mid-2000s. The Klitschko era could’ve been the closest chance for boxing fans to witness two brothers fight against each other but a match between the Ukrainian siblings never came to fruition during their careers.
In 2021, both Logan and Jake Paul now have the rare opportunity to fight one other and give an entertaining match that will certainly be a sight to behold for boxing fans everywhere.
2. Antonio Brown
It has been over a year when rumors regarding Logan Paul’s potential fight against Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown has emerged on social media. Back in February 2020, the two have already publicly spoken on how much of the total proceeds would they give as a donation to charity.

The two personalities also had an altercation during the Super Bowl LIV festivities in Miami over a year ago. Impaulsive co-host Mike Majlak further stirred the pot by posting the clip on Twitter to hype up the beef between the two.

Despite their clashes in public, both Paul and Brown have yet to step in the same ring to this day. Midway through the year, it is still not too late to pit the two personalities in a potential fight although it would have to wait until after the upcoming NFL season since the former Pro Bowler has already signed a one-year contract to return to the Bucs in 2021.
After Paul’s fight with Mayweather, he admitted that he might look for an MMA opponent for his next fight and ultimately take his talents to the octagon, given his background in wrestling, as per MMA Junkie.
“I’d do MMA, for sure, because I am a good grappler. You know, I’m a wrestler at heart.”
Still one of the biggest names in MMA today, a fighter that could potentially draw a ton of interest in a bout would be Conor McGregor. The Irishman has already shown his willingness to engage in gimmick bouts as he previously fought in a boxing match against Mayweather which he lost back in August 2017.
Not to mention that Jake Paul has already called out McGregor and offered him $50 million for a fight. Unfortunately, the UFC fighter eventually turned it down by saying ‘UFC high level fighting’ is superior to ‘blogger jacka** boxing’, per LADBible.
If it completely doesn’t happen then maybe Logan Paul can step in and fight for his younger brother in case McGregor would suddenly change his mind and be willing to put up another big wager on a potential fight in the future.
