Logan Paul open to fighting brother Jake in ‘one of biggest bouts ever’

Logan Paul says he is prepared to step into the ring to fight his brother Jake Paul and claimed it would be "one of the biggest combat sports events of all time."

The siblings have been making waves in the world of boxing after crossing over from their previous careers as YouTube stars.

Despite their close bond, the Paul brothers have shared a feisty rivalry on social media in the past, and Logan now feels they could reignite it face to face in front of their legions of fans in return for a handsome pay day.

"I'm a showman, so is Jake, and we had a little rivalry on YouTube that has never been matched and I don't believe it ever will," Logan Paul told Access (via Boxing Scene ).

"Our diss tracks against each other have like 300 million views, it was like we were the two brothers that despised each other online.

"And I think we can probably make a similar wave if Jake and I ever fought each other.

"I'd go ahead and say Logan Paul versus Jake Paul would be one of the greatest, and biggest and highest grossing pay-per-view combat sports events of all time."

Logan was the first to make the successful transition into the sport as a professional when he fought KSI in 2019 in the rematch to their amateur bout the year prior.

Even though he lost the clash at the Staples Center, the 26-year-old is now in line to face Floyd Mayweather in a mega-money exhibition bout.

Mayweather has suggested the showdown could net him around $100million.

Meanwhile the younger Paul brother Jake, 24, has made an impressive start to his boxing career, winning both of his professional bouts so far by knockout, in the first and second rounds respectively.

He is now set to embark on a sterner test on April 17 when he meets UFC star Ben Askren, and Jake has outlined the clear difference between him and Logan.

"My brother is a fake fighter, I'm the real fighter," Jake told TMZ recently. "He's 0-1-1, I'm 3-0 [including amateur results] I wish him the best of luck.

"I just like – don't get in there with a guy who's never even been knocked out. [Mayweather has] been knocked down once and it was by accident."
