The trend of crossover matchups and exhibition bouts was just gaining steam when The Paul brothers made full use of it. However, both the Pauls have had rather different rides. Logan Paul, who has only fought on exhibitions, has traded blows with KSI and Floyd Mayweather.

Meanwhile, Jake Paul has competed in professional bouts and has won in all 4 of his appearances. Standing over a month away from his fight against Tommy Fury, ‘The Problem Child’ shared his views on his brother’s boxing career and explained why Logan Paul may not have a future like him in the sport.

Jake Paul said, “I would describe his boxing career you know as something he does for entertainment and for fun and because he loves it. Mine is a lot more serious and I want to become a world champion, 10-0, and retire undefeated.”

“You know he started off his career with a loss. So, it’s a little hard to like comeback from that. But he is still a great fighter. And he still sells tons of PPVs. So, he has got a bright future in the sport as crazy as it is.”

Meanwhile, Logan Paul may not be done. He is still interested in entering the ring. As for potential opponents; he has been targeting legendary names for his in-ring scraps. Thus, we can expect another massive blockbuster coming from him.

Logan Paul has his eyes on the big paydays

While Jake Paul is taking on serious fights, Logan Paul is bagging the bigger paydays in some fantasy fights. He unveiled a draw against Floyd Mayweather in a massive exhibition in June. Following that, he is now being rumored to face Mike Tyson or Anderson Silva. But all of these fights will be exhibitions.

Unlike his elder brother, Jake Paul has beaten two former MMA champions inside the boxing canvas and is set to face a pro-boxer for the first time in his career. Although Tommy Fury is also a beginner, he seems a viable opponent for ‘The Problem Child’. This massive contrast between the Paul brothers has been entertaining so far, as they continue to grab more eyeballs every day.
