Recently, on his IMPAULSIVE podcast, ‘The Maverick’ shed some light on his next fight. He said, “It feels good to like Mayweather has his ability to kind off bless people with a magic one. And I knew if I did well, I’m in this weird position where my next fight is with a right opponent, could be a $100 million fight, like literally $100 million fight.”

The Floyd Mayweather fight was undoubtedly Logan Paul‘s ticket to go big in the boxing world. He gave his sheer best in that exhibition war and kept ‘Pretty Boy’ on his toes throughout. Many expected that it’d be an easy outing for someone like Mayweather.

However, Logan Paul, who didn’t make it so easy for Mayweather, had his moments inside the squared circle. That said, the Mayweather fight has also equipped him to take on highly skilled technicians from hereon. But in his above podcast, Paul didn’t say a word about whom is he facing next.
