Antonio Brown has issued a direct challenge to Logan Paul regarding their potential boxing showdown, ordering the YouTube entertainer to “get the papers” after the stars publicly locked horns on social media earlier this week.

The former Steelers star hasn’t been subtle in his attempts to goad Paul into a high-profile fight, telling him to “square up” in a Twitter callout, and suggesting he’d “f**k up” the YouTube star during an interview on Barstool Sports’ KFC Radio.

Now Brown, whose stint with the New England superteam lasted just 11 days before he was cut due to sexual assault allegations, has turned to a career in rap under the moniker “AB,” and is gunning for six rounds in the ring with Paul.

Instagram: Antonio BrownBrown has confirmed his Logan Paul callout on Twitter was “dead serious.”

Brown’s salvo aimed to Paul on Monday, which saw the YouTube star respond that he would “drop [AB] faster than the Patriots,” seemed to be the only time the two would clash. It seems, however, the NFL star’s callout was dead serious.

“He was calling me out for a couple of months, and he said he wanted to fight me… that he’s down to fight,” Brown told Complex after the release of his new rap single “Whole Lotta Money,” which he’s been spruiking for the past few weeks.

“Yeah, if he really want to do it… if old Logan want to come, see if he wants to get a little rumble on. I’ve been hearing him talk about it a lot. Get that paper right so I can get out to Vegas and get in my zone.”

Logan Paul and KSI duked it out for six rounds in November, and now Antonio Brown wants a crack at the YouTube star.

While there’s plenty that believe Brown wouldn’t stand a chance against the YouTuber in a one-on-one duel in the ring — Odds Shark even opened the betting at Paul -2000, Brown +1000 — the All-Pro wide receiver is oozing with confidence.

That confidence comes, in part, from the fact Logan Paul is now 0–2 against fellow internet star Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji. After losing in a semi-pro bout in 2018, the American fell to a second defeat by decision at the Staples Centre in November.

“Yeah, he got beat man, he’s just been taking Ls all over,” Brown added when discussing their potential 2020 showdown, but added that he was impressed by his marketing expertise. “He made a good pop though, made a lot of money.”

That’s a sentiment AB has stuck to when discussing the man he wants to touch gloves with sometime this year: he’s a “big fan,” and has a lot of respect for Paul.

“It seems like Logan is a boxer for real, he’s a cool guy,” Brown said. “Came to my house a couple years ago at the Superbowl. He’s promoting his craft and his brand, so it would be an honor if I could hook up with him. I think it would be pretty fun.”

Of course, no matter what level of respect the NFL star has for Paul, he still wants to lay him out if the two do eventually meet in a bout that could “break the internet.

Apparently, he’s so serious about delivering the YouTuber his second pro boxing loss, he’s already enlisted the help of 50–0 undefeated superstar Floyd Mayweather. Now all that needs to happen is for Paul to pull the trigger.

“Yeah, I’m going to be out in Vegas, and if Logan confirms, if he’s serious about it, I’ll be working with Floyd,” Brown confirmed.

“I don’t want him [Paul] to be writing checks you can’t cash, you know. Paul, you’re coming after me for a couple of months, so I finally hit him up like, “Hey man, I’ve seen this too much.” He must really want to make this happen.”

It looks like the wheels could be in motion for the major high-profile fight too, after Paul’s lieutenant Mike Majlak leaked a conversation between the two that suggested they were preparing to approach Maddison Square Garden for the bout.

Whether or not Brown and Paul do eventually step into the ring, it looks like there could be a few months of speculation and build-up ahead of the title fight before it’s eventually decided, with both sides happy to let it play out across the internet.

Now, the only question is who wins — the YouTuber who trained as a boxer for the past year, or a four-time All-Pro star with a decade of NFL experience under his belt.

Tyler1 amazes Smash Ultimate pros after battling MkLeo on Twitch

Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp faced off against the number one Smash Ultimate player, Leonardo ‘MkLeo’ López Pérez, in what was meant to be a fun T1 crossover. Instead, the League challenger got to work, trash talking and smashing about the best in the world.

Tyler1 doesn’t do anything by halves. He’s loud, and has the personality to match. He revs up his Twitch stream to hundreds of thousands of adoring fans daily, who are there not for the gameplay, but for the Tyler1 ride.

Those who caught the streamer’s November 27 cast were certainly in for a ride. The League of Legends star collided with Smash Ultimate’s biggest name, MkLeo.

It makes sense a crossover between the two was inevitable ⁠— with both being part of prestigious organization T1 ⁠— but the action exceeded everyone’s expectations. Of course, Tyler1 got trounced by MkLeo. However, that doesn’t mean he wasn’t able to get a stock or two, and the League streamer let the Smash pro know about it.

“Leo, I don’t think you’re that good dude. How bad are Smash players if I almost f**king beat you,” Tyler1 said, while struggling to get more than half a stock on average every game.

MkLeo didn’t take it lying down though. “You’re so bad that you’re really good at the same time,” he hit back with.

Tyler1 kept frying the big fish though. Next on his stop of trash talk was Leffen. “Leffen is a scrawny p*ssy a** b*tch. Kid sucks at f**king Smash. Rages at a children’s game, f**king loser,” he said, which had MkLeo in stitches. He had enough slaptalk for Samsora and other pros too.

Fans were also treated to some iconic Tyler1 reactions, and there was none bigger than the streamer’s bewilderment at Arsene, Joker’s Persona. “What the hell is that? Did you just enter a cheat code, bud? Are you cheating?”

After it was all said and done though, the crossover did what it intended to do. It united the League of Legends and Smash communities, and entertained everyone in the crossover that no one really wanted, but they definitely enjoyed.

“Playing and chilling with [Tyler1] really made me realize what it is to be a streamer and a gamer. Loved his personality and him as a person, looking forward to more collaborations like these,” MkLeo said on Twitter.

“T1 playing smash with Leo was actually so godlike. Makes me actually want to play league more and see if I can get to further than Masters,” Samsora also added on Twitter.

Tyler1 kept his side of the story nice and quaint though: “It was pretty fun.”
