Not everyone wants to see Logan Paul continue trading blows inside a boxing ring. However, the successful PPV numbers clearly reflect a different scenario. The YouTuber turned boxer has grabbed massive attention every time has stepped through the ropes. That said, he has had only two big-level fights, one against fellow YouTuber KSI and the other against ‘TBE’ Floyd Mayweather.

Only his re-match against KSI was held under a professional rule-set after a white-collar amateur clash in the original fight. The scrap against Floyd Mayweather was an exhibition, having no similarities with a professional clash. However, all of it can come to an end as he touched on his recent hand injury.

In a chat with Howie Mandel, when asked about his future in the sport, ‘The Maverick‘ went silent.

Nevertheless, Paul is famous for his dramatic activities. As he has been teasing numerous fights, especially against UFC star Anderson Silva, we may have not seen the last of Logan Paul in the ring.

Paul’s marketable aura has brought several new fans into the sport. Also, the fact that he held his own against ‘Money‘ has led to some fans believing in him. Hence, if things fall in place, we may see him clash with several veterans of the fight game, other than Anderson Silva.

A lot of it depends on his health and how long can he say injury-free in the vicious sport.

Who shall Logan Paul fight if he remains active?

Unlike Jake Paul, ‘The Maverick’ doesn’t seem interested in turning professional. While he may continue to box celebrities or fellow social media stars, Paul may also go against former world champions. Heavyweight legend Mike Tyson falls in that bracket. A few months back, Paul and Tyson touted a potential clash.

The idea is still far from meeting official fruition, but it assures fans that Logan Paul will never be short on names queuing up for a shot against him. Given how things stand, we feel ‘The Spider’ should be Logan Paul’s next opponent.
