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.

Tyron Woodley

YouTube star Jake Paul has carved something of a career for himself in the world of boxing. To date, Paul has contested three bouts and won them all, defeating fellow social media influencer AnEsonGib, former NBA star Nate Robinson and retired MMA fighter Ben Askren. All three victories came via knockout.

Now, however, he will face his biggest task to date as he goes toe to toe with another veteran of martial arts – ex-UFC fighter Tyron Woodley. Those keen to lay a wager on the match would do well to pick up some tips about UFC betting on howtobet.com, but does Jake Paul have what it takes to maintain his unbeaten record come August?

What next for Billy Joe Saunders after Defeat to Canelo Alvarez?

It was hard to tell how much damage Billy Joe Saunders had after Canelo Alvarez had unleashed an extremely powerful uppercut to the Englishman’s right eye during their middleweight unification fight. Over 73,000 spectators in the AT&T Stadium in Texas, many in the arena believed that a significant blow had indeed been landed.

All It Takes Is One Punch

It was only after both fighters came out of their clinch that the worst-case scenario for Saunders had been confirmed. The 30-year-old’s eye closed up within seconds and his cheek appeared to be slightly caved in. Admirably, that didn’t stop Saunders from finishing the rest of the round before heading back to his corner to tell his trainer Mark Tibbs that he could no longer see. Team Saunders was left with no other option than to inform the referee that the Englishman was unable to continue. Jubilant scenes then followed in the ring as Alvarez was awarded the WBO super middleweight title by way of TKO. Meanwhile, Saunders was immediately transported to a local hospital in Dallas for emergency surgery as this post-fight report from talksport.com officially confirms.

It was a harsh end for Saunders, but he knows as much as anyone how tough this division can be. That’s not to say that the 30-year-old was ahead in the bout, all three judges had Alvarez winning the fight at the time of the stoppage, but he was boxing intelligently and avoiding most of the Mexican’s power shots.

Pound for pound, no boxer is currently more highly rated in the fight game than Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez. Nevertheless, on Saturday he faces arguably one of the toughest bouts of his illustrious career. Billy Joe Saunders will be a hugely difficult opponent, in a contest that has three of the four major super middleweight belts up for grabs.

For anyone looking to bet on the Saul Alvarez v Billy Joe Saunders fight, the latest 3/25 pre-fight odds are strongly in favor of the Mexican. Meanwhile, the undefeated British boxer is being priced as a 5/1 shot, which points towards a potential upset if he emerges victorious. Whatever the outcome, this certainly promises to be an enthralling contest between two great boxers.

This fight is the latest for Alvarez in his quest to become the undisputed super middleweight champion. He currently holds the WBA, WBC, and Ring Magazine title belts in this division. If he can beat current WBO champion Saunders, the 31-year-old Mexican will then go after the IBF title, held by American boxer Callum Smith.

Could We See Francis Ngannou Vs Dillian Whyte After Both Recorded Spectacular Wins?

There was growing speculation in 2020 that fight fans would be treated to a sensational showdown between Francis Ngannou and Dillian Whyte after the two got into a war of words. Indeed, once again, giants from the octagon and boxing ring would come together to shake the very ground we stand on. To those that are on the outside of fighting circles, there may be some confusion as people try to make out what the difference is between MMA and boxing, and why this would be such a unique event?

They may seem like similar sports on paper, but at the same time, they are also worlds apart. It’s a bit like baseball and cricket, badminton and tennis. Perhaps the best example is that of the NFL and AFL which seem alike and are often confused for being the same thing. But this article on how the two sports differ will give you a detailed breakdown of the crucial distinction and comparison between the American and Australian sports. Punters will notice that the gear the players wear is slightly different, similar to the main contrast of boxing and MMA.

In boxing, the gloves weigh 8-10 ounces whilst in MMA they register just 4-6 ounces. Additionally, the different shapes of the playing area is one of the key differences between the NFL and AFL, notably, that is the main distinction between boxing and MMA as well. In this instance, it’s unclear as to where the fight would take place, either the eight-sided octagon or the four corners of the boxing the ring, either way, there is a strong desire to see it happen.

Indeed, the animosity between the two is still there, but interestingly, their career prospects have both dramatically increased after spectacular recent wins. Ngannou was able to brutally knock Stipe Miocic out to claim the UFC heavyweight championship of the world out. Meanwhile, Whyte avenged his initial loss to Alexander Povetkin in just four rounds, setting up a showdown with current WBC champion Tyson Fury.
