YouTube star Logan Paul is set to throw down with undefeated professional boxer Floyd Mayweather this February — but little brother Jake Paul isn’t a fan of their upcoming bout, even calling his sibling a “fake fighter.”

The Paul brothers have unexpectedly shifted from their careers as top-tier YouTubers into white-collar boxers. Ever since August 2018, the two have dedicated their time to training and scoring high-profile matches; and Logan may have taken the cream of the crop.

On December 6, 2020, it was announced that Logan would be fighting 50-0 pro boxer Floyd Mayweather in a “Super Exhibition” match in February 2021. This news seemed to overshadow Jake’s 2nd round KO over Nate Robinson a week prior, which may have influenced his thoughts on his older brother’s upcoming match.

“My brother is f**ked,” Jake taunted in an interview with TMZ. “It’s bad for the sport. I think it’s just for clout. You know, my brother’s a fake fighter. I’m the real fighter. He’s 0-1, I’m 3-0.”

A week later, Logan has finally responded to his little bro’s scathing words — and it’s safe to say that he’s a little confused as to where the venom is coming from, although he’s completely unfazed by the insults.

“I’m like, little brothers up to some s**t, like he wants to get some attention for a sec, go for it,” he said of the matter. “But I fully support Jake — whatever drama he wants to stir or create, it really doesn’t bother me. ‘You’re a fake boxer.’ Okay. Let’s box, because Jake is the kid that gets beat up by my sparring partners.”

“I’ve become like rubber sheet metal, dude,” he continued. “In this fight, everyone’s sayin’ a lot of things, and for good reason. I’m fighting Floyd f**king Mayweather! So I’ve literally become immune to every — I’ve heard it all.”

Jake isn’t the only one unsure of his brother’s chances; even Mike Tyson claimed that Floyd would “beat [Logan’s] f***kin’ ass” when it comes time for their match.

While the odds are certainly against Paul, there’s still a chance that he might surprise his critics and go the distance against his formidable opponent.

Those hoping to see how it pans out can tune into the fight via Fanmio on February 20 as YouTube boxing takes yet another huge leap in the entertainment world.

YouTube star-turned-pro boxer Jake Paul has officially revealed that he’s taking on another fight, as announced in a “huge” broadcast on January 20 — and he wants his fellow content creators on the undercard.

Yesterday, Jake Paul revealed in a tweet that he had a big announcement coming up for his fans, which would be broadcasted officially via Triller.

The day is finally here, and Paul has disclosed that he’s already set for an upcoming bout, and even gave his fans an official date for the fight.

Who is Jake Paul fighting next?

Unfortunately, the YouTuber didn’t drop any names, leaving many in the dark as to who he could be facing off against.

However, Paul has made a wealth of enemies in professional fighting circles since his 2nd round KO over Nate Robinson in November of last year, including the likes of MMA artists Dillon Danis, Ben Askren, and even Conor McGregor.

In fact, Askren accepted Paul’s challenge when the YouTuber called him out via social media, although things have been especially quiet on that forefront for some time afterwards.

Thus far, there’s no telling who Paul will fight next, although many fans are anxious for him to take on a professional fighter in wake of his multiple victories over celebs and fellow influencers.

When is Jake Paul’s next fight?

Jake Paul will be throwing down in the boxing ring again on April 10, 2021 — a little under three months away.

This fight will come just two months after Logan Paul’s upcoming exhibition against Floyd Mayweather, already proving 2021 to be a fairly busy month for the brothers.

As for the event itself, Jake was keen to have other influencers on the undercard. Many fans have expressed hopes for Slim and Deji to make an appearance — two YouTubers who have already fought in live streamed boxing matches, previously.

That’s not all; Paul also teased that rapper Snoop Dogg will be making an appearance on the mic, making this a truly star-studded affair.

Where to watch Jake Paul’s next fight?

The fight appears to be available to watch via Triller, exclusively, so make sure to set up your account if you want to tune into the action.

Paul is hoping to create the “biggest pay-per-view ever” — but with no opponent yet announced, there’s no telling if his dream will come true in a few month’s time.
