Popular YouTuber Logan Paul and NFL star Antonio Brown turned heads across the net, after appearing to challenge each other to a boxing match on Twitter — but this social media beef could quickly become reality.

According to Logan Paul and fellow podcast host Mike Majlak, the “Maverick” team are already in talks to secure a venue and date for a fight, with the YouTuber himself claiming that he’s “serious” about the potential bout.

“I’m f**king serious, bro,” Paul revealed in an interview with TMZSports. “You know how serious I take fighting. You know I love talking smack, I also love backing it up.”

“The teams are already talking,” Majlak interjected. “People are already talking. Agents on the inside are talking.”

That’s not all; apparently, Logan Paul vs Antonio Brown isn’t far off, with Paul appearing to hint that their bout could be scheduled for the near future.

“I think we might be closer than anyone expects,” Paul continued. “Than even we expected. In my mind, this whole thing seems… they say, ‘If it’s too good to be true, it probably is.’ In my mind, I’m getting that feeling, ‘cause I genuinely do not know how serious A.B. is.”

Luckily for Paul, it looks like the American football pro is just as serious about their potential bout, stating in an interview with Complex that his opponent had better “get the papers.”

“Yeah, if he really wants to do it,” Brown said of the fight. “He was calling me out for a couple of months, said he wanted to fight me. That he's down to fight. So if old Logan wants to come, see if he wants to get a little rumble on.”

With Brown making a trip to Vegas and possibly being coached by none other than Floyd Mayweather, this match could be shaping up to be one of the biggest spectacles in internet history.

But, for now, all fans can do is watch and hope that the two are indeed finalizing their fight.
