Logan Paul compared to Muhammad Ali by former world champion boxer

Former super-lightweight world champion Zab Judah compared YouTube star turned professional wrestler Logan Paul to the legendary heavyweight Muhammad Ali.

Logan Paul has only competed three times since entering the world of combat sports. His first match was a non-professional boxing match with fellow YouTuber KSI, which ended in a draw. He then made his first sanctioned professional appearance, losing to KSI in a huge pay-per-view match. Paul’s third match was an exhibition bout with boxing legend Floyd Mayweather.

Now Paul is eyeing a return to the ring and has been linked with a whole host of potential opponents, including Nate Diaz. Nate will compete against Logan Paul’s brother Jake Paul in August in Dallas.

Despite never having won in a squared circle outing, Judah said that he saw shades of Ali in Paul’s training work. When talking to OLBG, Judah made a comparison between Paul and Ali.

“I standby saying Logan Paul looked like a young Muhammad Ali. You’ve got to remember he’s a tall, sleek, slender guy – he gave me the Muhammad Ali vibes, I don’t care what nobody says. At that time I came to see Logan Paul training in California at his house. He was moving like Ali.”

Judah has worked out with Paul, who is well-known for being a skilled wrestler. Paul recently signed with leading promotion WWE to a long-term deal. He has made a significant impact in the wrestling world but has yet to achieve a similar feat in the squared circle.

Despite not yet picking up a win, Paul has ambitiously stated that he wants to make history by becoming a champion in three different combat sports industries.

In an interview with BT Sport, Paul said: “There was a part of me that really wanted to become a WWE Champion, a UFC champion, and a boxing champion. That feels impossible and it’ll probably never be done ever.”

“But if I just decided to, like really decided to, something tells me I could probably do it. What are we chasing here? The answer would be legacy so how important is that to me, to be remembered forever if I became a triple champion in three different industries?”
