When Is Logan Paul's Next Fight And Who Will He Fight Next?

The youtube star turned boxer Logan Paul has already fought some relatively tough opponents. But he is far from done yet, and is intending to step back into the ring very soon.

But many are wondering, how did he get into boxing and who will he fight next? 

How Did Logan Paul Begin Boxing? 

Logan first took an interest in combat sports at an early age, he was an outstanding wrestler and linebacker throughout his high school life. But then his career as a YouTuber took off, earning him a great fortune but in the meantime forcing his love for contact sports into the backseat.

Then after several years, it was fellow internet celebrity KSI who effectively kick started his boxing career.

The Englishman called out Logan Paul to fight him back in 2018, after he had bested Joe Weller in the first ever boxing match of its kind (YouTuber vs YouTuber).

To the excitement of fans across the globe, Logan accepted this offer and the YouTubers’ brothers (Jake Paul and Deji) were also thrown into the mix to fight each other in a separate match.

Both Logan and his younger brother Jake never had any boxing experience before their fights, but they both began rigorous training routines in 2018 and the rest is history.

Since his amateur fight against KSI, Logan has come a long way. More recently, he impressively held his own against former five-division world champion Floyd Mayweather Jr, in a match that earned the pair millions but disappointed fans. It ended in a draw. 

Who Will Logan Paul Fight Next? 

After fighting such a formidable opponent, fans are left wondering, who is next on Logan’s hit list?

Thankfully Logan has seemingly answered this question himself, stating that the Brazilian fighter Whindersson Nunes wants to fight him next.

Nunes is a 27 year old boxer who, like Logan, has a huge YouTube following. His channel became the most subscribed to profile in Brazil in 2016.

Nowadays, his YouTube has 43.8 million subscribers whilst his Instagram account has almost 59 million avid followers!

In terms of physical ability, Nunes has similar fighting experience to Logan and is slightly shorter than him, coming in at 5ft 9in. 

Logan himself told TalkSport that he is interested in fighting Nunes and was quoted saying that “I want to knock someone out and I think Winderson is a good opponent for me”.

However, this fight has not been officially confirmed yet, and there are many other fighters who would love a chance at knocking out Logan Paul.

His last opponent, Floyd Mayweather, thinks that the now retired Andre Ward would be a perfect next opponent for Logan as the former two-weight champion is willing to step back into the ring once more. 

When Will Logan Paul's Next Fight Take Place? 

Although nothing has been set in stone yet, Logan has not been shy in telling the public that he is eager to fight as soon as possible, hoping even to step back into the ring in late 2022.
