Logan Paul: Who should he fight next?

Having fought against Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather almost two months ago, there will be a number of questions about who Logan Paul will face next inside a boxing ring.

Admittedly, his exhibition match against Mayweather was considered rather disappointing by many boxing fans, with many booing at the end of the contest, but Paul did manage to last the full contest without being stopped in the eight rounds that the bout lasted for.

The legendary boxer had praised Paul for his efforts at the end of the contest, however the YouTuber was left feeling rather questionable after the fight as he had been wondering whether ‘Money’ had let him survive the contest.

Nonetheless, that match is in the history books and he will now look to see what brother, Jake Paul, does when he meets former UFC welterweight champion Tyrone Woodley in Cleveland, Ohio, in August. It could be a good night for the brothers, as the latest Unibet IN odds have Jake coming out on top.

Who will Logan fight in the future?

However, there will still be questions about who Logan Paul will look to fight in the future, as he will undoubtedly want to get back in the boxing ring and prove himself as he still looks for his first victory as a professional boxer.

He managed to achieve a majority draw result against British YouTuber, KSI, in his first bout, however the rematch between the two saw the Brit take the win via a split decision outcome.

His fight against Mayweather was only the second opponent he had faced in a sanctioned boxing match, but it appears he is already making noise about who he wants to fight next.

Mike Tyson

‘Iron’ Mike Tyson recently made a return to the boxing ring after being retired for 15 years and looked as aggressive as ever against Roy Jones Jr, albeit a little slower.

Paul was asked about the possibility of fighting “The Baddest Man On The Planet” and certainly did not rule it out, suggesting that he believed he would have everything he needed in order to be able to defeat the former undisputed world heavyweight champion.

However, Tyson appears to be pushing for Paul to face Badou Jack in his next fight, although there are doubts about whether that contest will happen.

Manny Pacquaio

Having competed against Mayweather and putting on a good account of himself, perhaps the most logical step for Paul would be to get in the ring with Manny Pacquaio next.

The Filipino boxer was arguably one of the iconic boxer’s biggest rivals during his professional ring career, as both would compete across a number of different weight divisions before going against each other in 2015 in a match that was billed as the ‘Fight of the Century’  and the ‘Battle for Greatness’.

Pacquaio has only recently returned from retirement and has a fight against Errol Spence Jr scheduled on August 21, 2021, so perhaps Paul can turn up and challenge ‘Pacman’ to a bout to take place in 2022.

Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez

If Paul really wanted to test himself in the boxing ring, then a contest against a current professional boxer that is currently in their peak would have to be the next step for the YouTuber in order to prove himself within the sport.

Although Mayweather is arguably the biggest fight that any boxer could possibly achieve, there is no doubt that Paul got the kind of test he would have got if he faced someone like Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez.

The Mexican boxer is one of the best in the sport and has proven himself over a number of different weight divisions as he has managed to win multiple championships throughout his fight career.

In regards to how the two fighters would square up, the bout would look rather fair in a way, as Canelo matches up well with Paul. Alvarez stands at 5 foot 9 inches tall and has a fighting weight of approximately 175 lbs. Paul would have the advantage in regards to measurements regarding their physique, standing at 5 foot 11 and with a weight of 189 lbs. Put those two in a ring, and a quality fight could be on the cards and one in which Paul will be truly tested!
