In a recent sit-down interview, Logan Paul talked about his evolution as a person and his ‘0-100’ growth in the sport of boxing. While revisiting his fight with boxing’s ‘Pretty Boy’, he pinpointed the exact moment he realized that Floyd Mayweather would not be able to knock him out.

Nearly ten seconds away from lasting all 8 rounds with Mayweather, Paul started swinging his fist around; the 26-year-old then feinted a throw that made his opponent take a step back and finally raised his hand because he knew he had earned a moral victory that night.

Bro every time I feint, I’m watching the greatest fighter on the planet bite on my bulls**t, he’s like a f***ing ninja in the ring.

“I was just surprised that I was quick enough to actually get him to react, and that’s when I knew that this guy is not going to knock me out, he’s not going to beat me.

“In fact, I’m actually going to f**k him up a little bit,” said Logan Paul.

Logan Paul and Jake Paul are making boxing great again

Logan Paul fought Floyd Mayweather in June. Since then, the YouTube star has been traveling, partying, and focusing on some of his other business ventures like ‘Cryptozoo’.  While there were talks of a possible matchup with Anderson Silva in between, all of those conversations now seem to have fizzled out.

Regardless of when Logan Paul decides to step back in the ring, his stock in the sport simply cannot plummet. Both Paul brothers are key assets to the sport as well as promotions and networks like Showtime. Both Jake and Logan Paul bring some things to the table that no conventional pro-boxer can offer – mass viewership.

Stemming from YouTube, both brothers have garnered a large audience and have developed a huge social media following for themselves over the years.

The Paul brothers are naturally well equipped to attract fresh eyes to the sport. Moreover, they also present a much larger platform to up-and-coming fighters on the undercard.
