Floyd Mayweather calls out Logan Paul as fight rumors intensify

Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather has officially called out YouTuber Logan Paul, warranting a confident response from the social media star, as things heat up in relation to their rumored fight.

Back in September, reports started to come out that the unlikely pairing would face off in the ring at some point, with Logan clearly not scared off by Floyd’s incredible 50-0 unbeaten record.

On September 16, former NFL kicker Pat McAfee reported that “a contract has been signed” for an exhibition match between the two though, since then, there has been little more said in regards to the fight.

That was until the early hours of the morning on Thursday, November 19, when Floyd Mayweather tagged Logan in a tweet, directly calling him out in response to the YouTuber’s boasts that he could beat Floyd.

“These YouTube girls better find some Barbie dolls to play with ‘cause I’m not the one for the kid games,” Mayweather said. “3 years ago a fighter from the UFC said my name and I had to put a muzzle on that b**ch. @LoganPaul can get the same treatment before I go conquer Japan again.”

While a tweet like this would usually intimidate possible opponents, or just about anyone else in the world, Logan wasn’t phased at all.

He simply made a very bold prediction for the fight, saying “50-1,” implying he plans to end Floyd’s incredible unbeaten streak.

Like Floyd said, though, the last person to challenge him was Conor McGregor, one of the most successful fighters in the UFC, and even he looked unlikely throughout the duration of the fight to even hope for a win.

Just as everything was going quiet on the fight front between these two, fans will welcome the trash talk going on, and definitely suggests that things are heating up, so maybe fans will have more to look forward to in the near future.

BTS crushes 28-year-old record for most music show awards in a year

K-Pop group BTS have once again broken a record after scoring a win at the 2020 Asia Artist Awards (AAA).

BTS, also known as the Bangtan Boys, consists of seven members: V, J-Hope, RM, Jin, Jimin, Jungkook, and Suga. The group debuted in 2013 before soaring to international popularity in 2018 after releasing the YouTube Premium documentary Burn the Stage.

Most recently, BTS released their fifth studio album ‘Be’ on November 20, which includes Dynamite – the first of their songs to be recorded fully in English.

Dynamite helped BTS break their latest record after the song won the Daesung for ‘Best Song of the Year’ at the AAAs.

In the K-Pop world, a Daesung is one of the most prestigious accolades an artist can receive. When winning a Daesung, the focus is on the records the artist released that year, and takes into account how many copies – both digital and physical – were sold.

By winning this latest Daesung, BTS broke a record that has previously been held since 1992 by K-pop trio Seo Taiji and the Boys. The band had previously collaborated with BTS in 2017 in a 25th anniversary concert, wherein Taiji announced that he was passing the torch onto BTS to continue K-Pop’s legacy.

“This is your generation now,” Taiji said at the time.

BTS’ Daesung for Dynamite also extends their record for the most Daesungs in history to 43 – a record they previously broke in 2019 after they won a total of 37.

This isn’t the first time the group’s hit song Dynamite has broken records. Back in August, they broke several milestones on YouTube after fans eagerly watched the premiere of the song’s music video.

One record they broke was for most views within 10 minutes of uploading a YouTube video, as over 20 million viewers tuned in to watch Dynamite during that timeframe.

The live premiere of the video also broke the YouTube record for most concurrent viewers.  One live count recorded that between 3 to 4 million people were watching the video at once.
