Logan Paul shook the entire fight universe by putting on a clinic against Floyd Mayweather. Many expected the latter to knock out Paul in the early rounds of the fight. But vanquishing all his naysayers, Paul took this fight until the last bell. He undoubtedly entered this contest as an underdog, but despite that, he fared like a favorite, thus giving ‘Money’ a stern in-ring test.

Regardless of the fact that there would be no official winner, Paul showed the intent to win, thus proving his mettle against the elite 50-0 boxer. That said, the 26-year-old has opened himself to more elite opponents like Mayweather.

In this article, we will take a look at some of the most viable options for Logan Paul’s next boxing outing.

3 potential opponents for Logan Paul’s next boxing test

1) Conor McGregor

A few days back, the Ohio native asserted his wish to fight Conor McGregor. He considers the Irishman as a legend and has a powerful urge to enter a proficient boxing tussle with him. Unfortunately for him, as the ‘Notorious’ is currently looking to reclaim his lightweight throne in the UFC, he won’t look to take any other fight.

With that, the future of the McGregor vs Paul fight seems in jeopardy.

2) Chris Hemsworth

Earlier this year, the renowned Hollywood star, Chris Hemsworth released a boxing training video. In this video, Hemsworth was seen hitting the mitts powerfully. This video caught Paul’s eye and he couldn’t hold himself back from calling out the ‘Thor’ of Hollywood.

Hemsworth didn’t come up with a response to that call out. It remains to be seen if he does so now.

3) KSI

When Logan Paul engaged in a pro-boxing bout with fellow YouTuber KSI in 2019, he lost via a split decision.

That said, this fight seems the most viable and ideal for Paul at this stage of his career. Because ultimately, he’ll get to settle his scores with his rival, and simultaneously get his professional run back on track.
