Controversial NFL star Antonio Brown has become the latest star to challenge Logan Paul to a potential fight, with the former Patriots star calling out the YouTuber on Twitter.

Logan Paul isn’t taking his loss to KSI in their 2019 boxing bout lightly. The nail-biting defeat has kicked the American into gear, swapping codes to Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) and looking to take on some of the world’s best in 2020 and beyond.

His swap hasn’t gone unnoticed by sporting and entertainment royalty, with big names coming out of the woodwork teasing bouts with Paul. 

Antonio Brown is the latest in a long line of names to put themselves forward for a prospective bout, tweeting a cryptic message at Paul on January 6.

Brown tweeted out a short “square up” threat at Paul, with the NFL star hinting he’s ready to take the YouTuber down. He also appeared on American radio show KFC Radio, saying he’s ready to “f**k Paul up.”

He is aware of the challenge too, quipping back a quick retort at Brown on Twitter. “I’d drop you faster than the Patriots,” he said. 

While it might all just be a ruse, with the off-season approaching there’s still a chance it could happen. Betting agencies like Odds Shark have already opened the books for the bout, with Logan Paul drawing ahead as the favorite just hours after the challenge was initially tweeted.

The 31-year-old wide receiver was a part of the New England Patriots line-up who were recently knocked out of Superbowl contention by the Tennessee Titans. He is now a free agent.

Weighing in at around 185 pounds, he comes in slightly lighter than Paul’s 189lb, but the professional athlete is unlikely to be phased regardless.

Logan Paul has been training hard to make the swap into MMA, saying it was a dream of his to fight at least one bout in 2020. 

Two fights are in the works, one for both MMA and boxing, according to the YouTuber, so fans will have something to look forward to as the year progresses.

Brown joins the likes of Joel ‘JMX’ Morris in the waiting list for a Paul fight. JMX called out Paul for a scrap on January 2, with the FIFA YouTuber fighting on the undercard of KSI vs Joe Weller in 2018, and later on in the KSI vs Logan Paul undercard.

JMX also has experience in MMA, winning his first professional bout back in November 2019, afterwards stating that he’d “love to knee the sh*t out of” Paul. 

Paul has likely got something in the works, and with no shortage of challengers, he will be the one with the power to inevitably decide who takes him on for pride and glory later in the year.

World of Warcraft Shadowlands finally arrived on November 23 and while one Twitch streamer drove home far too fast to load it up with friends, the Police officer who stopped them completely understood. 

As many members of the community will know, the game’s latest expansion will bring together loads of new and returning players for an all-new story. There’s Covenants to mess around with, new quests to try out, and many will have been rushing home to play it after work.

Though, speeding is against the highway code and by driving too fast you are putting others in danger – which meant one streamer was unfortunately told to pull over by the Cops.

Usually, this would lead to a speeding ticket, but after explaining their reason for going too fast – to get home and throw Shadowlands on – the officer came in clutch and decided to turn a blind eye in what was quite a remarkable story.

Shadowlands is finally here and some are getting a bit to exicted.

Shadowlands saves Twitch streamer a speeding ticket

On release day, streamer bbnogames was already playing Shadowlands when his friend called, who presumably also streams with him.

They said: “Bro, hahaha. The Cop was like ‘yo, you know how fast you were going?’ I’m like dude I’m so sorry, this game is dropping soon, all my friends are waiting for me.

“He’s like ‘Shadowlands?’ And I’m like yeah, and he’s like OK go!”

 

After that, he said he was just five minutes away and eventually joined the team playing online. After that remarkable exchange with the Police officer, things went without a hitch, when really he could have been left with a hefty ticket to pay for his troubles.

Instead, they were able to link up together later in the night and jump into World of Warcraft’s latest expansion. Maybe next time, he won’t be so lucky.
