Logan Paul delivers x-rated pep talk to brother Jake before Ben Askren fight

Logan Paul has delivered a rousing pre-fight pep talk to his brother Jake before his bout with Ben Askren.

Jake will make the walk to the ring for the third time as a professional when he takes on former UFC star Askren in Atlanta.

And Logan, who is no stranger to the ring himself, was on hand in his brother's dressing room to offer words of advice.

"To you this fight is f****** everything, to him it's not – this is not his legacy," he said.

"This is your legacy and you're definitely not going to let some f****** guy who looks like Napoleon f****** Dynamite take that away from you.

"This is the one thing, it's like you said on our podcast, leave it all on the f****** line and this f****** guy is not going to dictate what happens with your life."

Logan has fought once as a professional, losing to social media rival KSI in their 2019 rematch.

He was due to take on Floyd Mayweather in an exhibition fight in February but the bout has been postponed indefinitely.

Logan said after the fight was initially postponed: "The narrative changed to, ‘Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul fight postponed due to lack of interest.’ Lack of interest? What the f***? There’s not be a fight that’s made this much noise the whole year.
