The 25-year-old has only ever had 2 boxing fights, out of which only one was a professional bout. He is the older brother of fellow internet sensation turned boxer Jake Paul. In the ring, Logan Paul goes by the nickname ‘Maverick’.
Before his rise to stardom, Logan Paul was a high-school athlete. He was an all-star football player and also had a lot of success at wrestling. He secured the fifth pace in OHSAA State Championships during his senior high and got into Ohio University as a result. In the university, Paul went one better by qualifying for the school wrestling championship.
He ultimately dropped out to pursue a career on YouTube, and it has brought him a lot of success. His vlogs, which even sometimes featured his parents, garnered a global audience. Logan Paul has starred in many movies like Airplane Mode and Foursome. He now focuses his attention on his Podcast, ‘The Impaulsive’ which has over 2.8 Million followers on YouTube.
The 25-year-old sensation has completely shifted his attention to the sport of boxing. He is going to fight Floyd Mayweather in an exhibition fight at a yet to be revealed date.
Logan Paul’s professional boxing record stands at an abysmal 0-1. Yes, the internet sensation has only ever had one professional fight, and he lost a close split decision. This was against fellow YouTube star KSI.
Logan Paul and KSI had first fought on a white-collar boxing event which ended in a draw. The re-match was organized as a professional fight in Los Angeles and even featured world champions like Devin Haney and Billy Joe Saunders.
His next fight against Floyd Mayweather is an exhibition so it will not reflect on the 25-year-old’s professional career. However, it means 2021 will be the year Logan Paul returns to the sport. How long he stays in the game is anyone’s guess.
Paul’s biggest efforts towards charity came as a result of one of his greatest scandals. After the vlog in Japan, he received a lot of backlash. In an effort to make up for this slip, he declared he would donate $1 million towards charity. However, some reports claim that the whole amount was never donated.
He recently raised $130,000 via a Livestream where he did a Pokemon card unboxing. The ‘Maverick’ donated all his winnings to the National Alliance on Mental Health. Plus, Logan Paul hosted the Challenger games and donated all the money to charity. In total, it is reported that the donations came up to $14,000.
According to multiple sources like Wealthy Gorilla, Logan Paul’s net worth is a whopping $19 million as of January 2021. Forbes reports that he earns $150,000 per Facebook post and $80,000 per Instagram sponsored post.
Furthermore, it is reported that he earned $10 million from his YouTube channel in 2019 alone. Though his content is no longer his main source of income, it still rakes in a fair share of money from there.
2021 will see this number rise as he will take on legendary boxer Floyd Mayweather in an exhibition bout.
