However, Logan Paul envisions the biggest fight of his career in a clash against none other than his younger brother Jake Paul. Despite being new to the sport, ‘The Maverick’ claimed that he would break every combat sports record if he ever faces his own brother. While several fight fans may disagree with the statement, Logan Paul sat down with Access and shared his opinion over the fight.

“I’m a showman, so is Jake, and we had a little rivalry on YouTube that has never been matched and I don’t believe it ever will,” said Logan Paul (h/t: DAZN)

He added, “Our diss tracks against each other have like 300 million views, it was like we were the two brothers that despised each other online. And I think we can probably make a similar wave if Jake and I ever fought each other.”

Logan Paul is 0-1 as a pro, and his second fight will be against a pro boxer. That’s the kind of luxury celebrity boxing brings, and ‘Maverick’ has no intention of furthering his boxing career under the radar.

He said, “I’d go ahead and say Logan Paul versus Jake Paul would be one of the greatest, and biggest and highest grossing pay-per-view combat sports events of all time”

There are high chances that the YouTubers lock horns against each other soon. They have managed to become relevant names in today’s combat world and have successfully garnered global attention.

So, a fight between them will apparently be huge and considering the lucrative PPV numbers, the Paul brothers can successfully stage a fight amongst each other. However, they have their respective tests ahead, and only after they surpass that, we can expect them to square off inside the ring.

Do you think Logan Paul vs Jake Paul needs to happen?
