Jake & Logan Paul Accused Of 'Orchestrating' Their Fights, It's Getting Hard To Argue

YouTube stars Jake & Logan Paul have sensationally been accused of 'orchestrating' their boxing fights by UFC legend Alistair Overeem.

The brothers have managed to establish themselves as huge pay-per-view draws in the last few years, with Jake fighting Tyron Woodley last and Logan fighting Floyd Mayweather.

Despite their opponents being combat stars, former Strikeforce heavyweight champion Overeem believes they'll never be in danger of taking a loss.

"He [Logan Paul] doesn't want any," Overeem told Chris Weidman on 'Won't Back Down'.

"He's doing good, he's going to do good business but of course, he is picking and choosing his guys right? Small, wrestler guys that don't really [have boxing backgrounds]."

When asked about Logan fighting Mayweather, the Dutchman replied: "He's small, he's like a 155 or something."

"So that's all orchestrated and it's good for them, right?

"Good for them but they would never, if it becomes threatening or dangerous, they'd never do it. They would never come into MMA.

"They are doing something that they feel is 'hey, this kind of feels like, the cards are stacked on my side' but they would never take a risk to really get hurt like we're doing.

"A real fight against a real killer and time and time again they are doing the safe, easy, playing part. It's not real fights.

"If you're fighting a guy who's 50 pounds less and Mayweather is known for winning decisions, right? That's different than fighting Francis Ngannou."

Jake is set to fight longtime rival Tommy Fury in December after going back and forth on social media.

Tyson has previously featured on Paul's Impaulsive podcast and praised both the YouTuber-turned-boxer and Jake Paul.

'Iron Mike' confirmed his intention of returning to the ring amid speculation linking him with a fight with either Jake or Logan.

"I am going to have a return fight in February and we are pretty sceptical about the opponent, but it will be a really stimulating opponent," the 55-year-old told The Sun.

Tyson previously teased that he could face fierce rival Lennox Lewis in an exhibition fight, while Paul has remained hush-hush on the name of his next opponent.

Paul hasn't ruled out a potential fight with the former undisputed world heavyweight champ and even said that he fancied his chances against Tyson in the ring.
