Last night Logan Paul surprised many by going the distance (eight rounds) with retired 50-0 pro boxer Floyd Mayweather in their exhibition bout. After the fight, Paul was asked where he goes from here.
The popular YouTuber announced that, as far as combat sports are concerned, he’s not going anywhere. He also announced his intention to branch out from just boxing.
“Regardless of the performance that was put on tonight, you know, this is my third fight,” added Paul. “Let me get a little good, you know, and then for sure, yeah, I’ll be putting on prizefights. That’s the answer. I’m sure there’s a list of opponents on Twitter, people chirping, saying this, saying that. I’ll pick one. Make them f*cking get embarrassed. I don’t know. We’ll see.”
Paul also said that he was happy with his performance against Mayweather, one of the greatest boxers of all time. “He’s my second opponent. Floyd Mayweather, my second opponent. And so, yeah, I mean, I’m happy. It’s good. It was good fun.”
In addition to taking more boxing matches, and possibly an MMA fight, Logan also hinted that the WWE is on his horizon.
“Anytime I can entertain, you know, I’m happy, whether it’s me getting in a boxing ring and risking my life, whether it’s me, you know, getting Stunnered in the WWE preparing for a match there, a podcast – like, I just love entertaining. I just like making people happy, you know, with the stuff that I love doing and what I make and creating myself out of my life, and that’s that’s that’s my dream.”
So it seems any hopes that you’d heard the last from Paul in this arena have been dashed. Even if Paul did decided to go away from fight sports, there’s another one who seems to be sticking around.
Jake Paul is currently preparing to fight Tyron Woodley on Showtime, a promotion Paul recently signed a multi-fight deal with.
