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.

Internet personalities Lexi Rivera and Ben Azelart have explained why they broke up after three years together, in an emotional video posted to YouTube.

Lexi Rivera is known in association with her brother Brent who is one of TikTok’s biggest creators with 35 million followers, while Lexi herself has more than 14 million followers on the app. The siblings also have a combined 19.5 million subscribers on YouTube.

Ben Azelart is also heavily associated with the siblings and has himself built up a huge following of 11 million followers on TikTok. But fans were devastated to find out this week that the duo were no longer a couple.

Lexi and Ben posted a video explaining why, saying that they thought they owed their fans the truth. Lexi said: “I have so much respect for Ben and he’s like literally one of the best people I’ve ever met in my entire life.” Ben responded, “I mean the same goes for me, Lexi is one of the nicest, sweetest, funniest people I’ve ever met.”

Addressing their viewers, Lexi explained why it took so long for them to officially break the news: “I know that it’s been super confusing for you guys and that is because it’s been just as confusing for us we’ve been very just on and off again and I don’t think we were really sure what we wanted to do until now.

“Having a relationship is one thing, but having a relationship online is a completely different story and it was very confusing for us. Honestly, it wasn’t easy being young like we were 15 and 16.

Lexi went on to say that the relationship no longer made them both happy. “We both had so much fun doing it, but I think as years went on it just became a little too complicated…I think what was hard is we want to make you guys happy as well as make ourselves happy.

“Ultimately we just didn’t do both and I think what’s most important was focusing on ourselves for now.”

Lexi and Ben finished by saying that they’re not parting ways forever and that they both felt it was just the wrong time to be together.
