Badou Jack fought on the undercard of the Mayweather vs Paul event. He took on Dervin Colina in a 10-round heavyweight contest that was rather one-sided.

As a result, he ended up winning that fight via T/KO in round 4. ‘The Ripper’ now wants to continue his boxing stint and take on many more stern contenders. However, as Logan Paul was never in his plans, Tyson’s comments unquestionably left him in splits.

On the other hand, there has been no response from Logan Paul or his team pertaining to his next fight. Yet, a news piece regarding the same might get out soon.

That said, the Floyd Mayweather fight has definitely helped him become a household name in the sport. But it seems ‘The Maverick’ will like to take up more such exhibitions with legends of the game, which will eventually help him expand his fan base.
