Logan Paul has taken a risk by claiming to be the best YouTuber to make the switch to boxing. Paul seems to have forgotten one important fact, though. He has never won a match.
Recently, the idea of YouTube boxing has gained enormous popularity. The content producers sell out whole stadiums and even square off against some of the greatest boxers in history.
The YouTubers are accomplishing impressive things inside the ring, financially at least. From the first-ever YouTube boxing match between KSI and Joe Weller to Jake Paul becoming professional and beating past MMA champions.
On a recent edition of his Impaulsive podcast, Paul remarked:
“So here is where it gets really interesting.”
“Now I am watching the landscape unfold and I have no wins but I am hungry and really hungry to get back in the ring. I am seeing my comrades do it and by the way if I didn’t think I was the best I wouldn’t do anything in life.”
“In my head I have to be number one because if I don’t believe it then how the f**k is anyone going to believe it? That is what I believe but of course respect to some of the particular greats in this vertical. I am hungry, I am training for the WWE again too but I am going in waves and I chase certain pursuits and WWE is becoming very real for me now.”
Jake, Logan’s younger brother, is most likely a legitimate candidate for the title of the best YouTube boxer. In addition to becoming a pro, Jake has faced some of the world’s toughest opponents. Most notably, he knocked out former UFC champion Tyron Woodley.
In what promises to be an exciting match up, Jake now seems ready to take on Anderson Silva, another UFC legend and Paul’s most challenging opponent to date.
Logan, on the other hand, has boxed against Floyd Mayweather, who is considered to be one of the finest boxers in history. However, he cannot claim to have won the bout the event went the distance and considering it was an exhibition ended without a result.
