Logan Paul and his brother Jake have taken the combat sports world by storm, much to the chagrin of many. Before younger brother Jake sold boatloads of pay-per-views with fights against former MMA champions, Logan was the one getting all the limelight inside the boxing ring.

The Paul Brothers’ excursions into prizefighting started in 2018 when Logan Paul feuded with fellow YouTuber KSI. That lead to a white-collar boxing match between the two that was ruled a draw. The pair rematched under pro rules the following year, with KSI earning a decision victory.

This year Paul returned to the ring with an exhibition versus 50-0 former pro Floyd Mayweather Jr. That exhibition ended with no winner declared after neither man was able to score a knockout over eight rounds.

Paul recently appeared on the Pain Game podcast to talk about a host of issues, including his dalliances with pugilism. Specifically, Paul was asked which of his two opponents packed the biggest punch.

“KSI for sure, for sure, not even a competition,” revealed Paul (ht Dexerto). “Mayweather has clean shots, and I was like cool, good job. KSI, I was like keep me away from those hands.”

Since playing around with Mayweather, Paul has been linked to a bout with UFC legend, and current boxing feelgood story, Anderson Silva.

After securing a release from the UFC Silva has impressed in the boxing ring defeating Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. by split decision and Tito Ortiz by emphatic KO.

A bout between Silva and Paul is unlikely to happen soon. Paul was recently photographed in Europe sporting a cast on his right arm.
