A fight between Logan Paul and NFL wide receiver Antonio Brown is “closer than anyone expected”, according to the YouTuber.
Logan Paul is “serious” about boxing NFL wide receiver Antonio Brown and he even stated so when approached about it by TMZ Sports.
This all stems from Paul calling out Brown last month, with the seven-time Pro Bowler telling the YouTuber to “square up” while revealing he intended to enlist the help of former five-weight world champion Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Via TMZ Sports:
“I’m f**king serious, bro. You know how serious I take fighting.”
That’s Logan Paul telling TMZ Sports a potential boxing match with Antonio Brown is VERY realistic … claiming he’s already in talks with AB’s camp.
“I think we might be closer than anyone expects,” Paul says.
We already know how serious Paul is about boxing, having fought twice already against fellow vlogger KSI, who won their rematch in November after the first contest ended in a draw.
Brown has not played an NFL snap since the middle of September and went through PR hell as his off-the-field behavior continues to get worse as he awaits the league to finish their investigation.
Paul believes fighting Brown would give him renewed focus.
“In my mind, this whole thing seems…They say if it’s too good to be true it probably is. In my mind, I’m getting that feeling because I genuinely do not know how serious AB is.
“Coming from a person who was in a s*** position after Tokyo [when Paul was criticised for posting a video showing the body of an apparent suicide victim], and in many ways the KSI fight gave me a purpose, I think this would do that for Antonio Brown, give him a nice payday, give him a chance to redeem himself.
“It would be one of the greatest events of 2020.”
