Who next for Logan Paul?

As Paul took on one of the greatest boxers of all time, everyone is wondering who would be next for Paul? 

A recent interview of ES News took place for the Mike Tyson vs. Lennox Lewis fight announcement. And Jack was present there along with Cejudo. 

The interviewer asked Jack whether a fight between him and Paul could take place? On this question, Cejudo also shared his thoughts on what will happen if Paul were to go up against Jack.

“There is a big difference in the weight (referring to Mayweather vs. Paul). This man (Badou Jack) right here would kill him (Logan Paul). I say you (Jack) bet the house. You will make it. Take him (Paul) all the round.”
