First, Bjornsson said, “So you kind of you should challenge me next because I’m heavier now and I’m taller”.

To which Paul said, “I wait. I saw a comment like this. We should do it right now. No, literally we should stand up and box.”

Later, the strongman reverted, “You’re f***ed”

However, Hafthor Bjornsson praised Logan Paul for the performance he put against Floyd Mayweather.

Just like Bjornsson, many boxing purists shared the same notion about Paul’s performance against ‘TBE’. The YouTuber worked extremely hard for this fight, and it was certainly evident in the show he put up against Mayweather.

Beginning the fight on a good note, Paul struck Mayweather with some solid hooks. Also, utilizing his lanky physique, ‘The Maverick’ fairly distanced himself from ‘Pretty Boy’. With this, he also survived Mayweather’s wrath, and the fight went the distance.

Paul also had enough stamina to keep fighting till the last gong and all his efforts eventually helped him make a good payday.

Is Logan Paul ready to take on the bigwigs?
