The cruiserweight sensation, Logan Paul, will fight boxing’s biggest name, Floyd Mayweather, on 20 February. The pair will battle in an exhibition bout in an undisclosed weight class. Although Logan Paul has an opponent in hand, he has expressed interest in fighting another big name.
‘The Maverick’ took to his Twitter handle to call out one of Marvel’s biggest stars, Chris Hemsworth.
He shared a video where he worked with mitts. Hemsworth landed big and speedy strikes and looked like a genuine boxer. This video caught Paul’s eye, and he immediately posted it on his Twitter handle. ‘The Maverick’ wrote, “I’ll fight him after Mayweather.”
Hemsworth ranks among the best and one of the highest-paid actors in the world. He is best known for his staggering performances as ‘Thor’ in eight Marvel Cinematic Universe Films. The actor is a fitness freak and has millions of fans who follow him closely.
Fans seemed unimpressed with Paul’s callout to Hemsworth. After this tweet, ‘The Maverick’ was at the receiving end of a huge backlash coming from fans.
Mayweather vs Paul will be one of the richest exhibition fights ever. The fight can even beat the Mayweather vs Pacquiao numbers. Fanmio CEO Solomon Engel has organized this exhibition and is pretty firm on this fight bagging huge numbers.
Despite not fighting professionally since beating Conor McGregor in 2017, Mayweather will enter this fight as a favorite.
Who will you be rooting for in this exhibition fight? Can Logan Paul get his hand raised against the best ever? Will he follow through on his desire to fight Chris Hemsworth after that?
