The beef between Kamaru Usman and the Paul brothers

There is no actual beef between Usman and Logan Paul. However, there is bad blood between Jake Paul and ‘The Nigerian Nightmare’.

The feud between them started when the pair took it to Twitter to troll each other. It became so serious that ‘The Problem Child’ was willing to step inside a boxing ring against Usman.

Despite their back-and-forth on social media and in interviews, a bout between Usman and Jake Paul never came to fruition. It seemingly fizzled out. However, one can expect ‘The Problem Child’ to respond to Usman’s post, just like he responded to Canelo Alvarez’s tweet about the event.
