Logan Paul may have decided he’s better off boxing other youtubers. The older brother of Jake Paul is currently 0-1 in his professional boxing career, having lost to another youtuber – KSI.
But Logan’s boxing journey didn’t end there. He also had the infamous exhibition bout with Floyd Mayweather – Logan is significantly bigger. The exhibition went the distance and as per the agreement had no winner.
Boxing analyst Dan Rafael believed that Mayweather lost rounds 1 and 2 but dominated the last 6 rounds. Marc Raimondi felt that round 7 was Paul’s best round in the bout. Ultimately ESPN scored the bout 78-74 for Mayweather.
Since then he has gotten some offers and was challenged several times. The latest to challenge Paul is a Brazilian celebrity youtuber Whindersson Nunes. Nunes is no joke – he has 27 million subscribers on the video platform.
After Nunes fought to a draw against former boxing champion Acelino Freitas, he called out the 26-year-old social media personality during the post-fight interview.
Paul didn’t miss a beat and replied in Portuguese on twitter.
Eu aceito seu desafio. Continue treinando ☺️ https://t.co/PTTNsiH23w

“Dear Whindersson. I accept your challenge. Keep training,” Paul tweeted.
Paul has turned his first professional bout into a valuable partnership. While Paul was one mortal enemy of British youtuber KSI the two have since partnered to create a new sports drink ‘Prime Hydration’.
And it’s looking like the launch was a success. Earlier in January the terrible twosome managed to sell out the entire stock online in just a few hours.
The drink reportedly contains 10% coconut waters and 825 milligrams of electrolytes. The idea was to rival Gatorade. One intersting aspect of the collab is that KSI has a huge following in the UK which has been a notoriously hard market for Gatorade to break out in. Prime’s UK store launch is reportedly being negotiated.
