Popular YouTuber Logan Paul looks eager to return to the ring after his split decision loss to KSI in November, but which star is he looking at taking on next?

Since YouTubers first entered the sport of boxing, many fans have been calling for their favorite personalities to clash for everyone to watch.

Following Jake Paul’s victory over AnEsonGib on January 30, his brother Logan seems to have found new motivation for fighting following his narrow defeat to KSI.

Logan has built a massive name for himself in the entertainment industry, with over 20.2 million subscribers on his YouTube channel, giving him plenty of options for opponents looking to share the limelight.

However, the popular content creator has been leaving many hints as to who he has on his radar for his next bout and has seemed to have narrowed it down to two well-known athletes.

Could Antonio Brown fight Logan Paul next?

Former NFL wide receiver Antonio Brown has seemed to have sparked Logan’s interest as a potential opponent following his departure from the New England Patriots after allegations surfaced about the star

The pair have been quite vocal on Twitter about setting up a bout between themselves, and have revealed their intention to donate all their earnings to charity if the fight was to take place.

During Super Bowl weekend on February 1, the two personalities had a brief clash with one another in Miami, although it is unclear what events led up to the face-off.

In the clip, which was shared by Impaulsive co-host Mike Majlak, Paul asked Antonio Brown “Do you want to make this happen?” sparking fans’ interest in the potential fight.

Dillon Danis vs Logan Paul?

Brazilian Jiu-jitsu black belt Dillon Danis also seems to be keen for a fight with Paul, although unlike his previous boxing bouts, Logan has revealed his interest in potentially testing out his MMA skills as well.

Logan competed as a wrestler during his early years, so the bout between the two of them could make for an interesting matchup in MMA with the pair bringing different skillsets to the table.

Dillon Danis initially rose to fame after training Conor McGregor ahead of many of his recent fights and although he specializes in BJJ, the grappler only recently transitioned to MMA himself and currently holds a 2-0 record in Bellator.

Super Bowl weekend seems to have been a busy one for Logan Paul as he also met with Bellator MMA’s promoter and CEO, Scott Coker, during his trip to Miami, leaving many fans confused about his plans.

However, shortly after Scott Coker tweeted the photo of their meeting in Miami, Dillon followed up by hinting that he and Logan could be next, posting a picture of the two of them simply captioned, “It’s on,” although, the fight has not been officially confirmed as of yet.

Dillon Danis also has an ongoing feud with Logan’s brother Jake Paul, which started all the way back from his split from Erika Costell, adding yet another reason why this fight would make sense for the fans.

It is unknown what exactly Logan’s plans are for his return to combat sports, but he seems to be doing a great job so far of hyping up his potential matchups.

After months of back-and-forth, Jake Paul and Nate Robinson are finally stepping into the squared circle for their highly-anticipated boxing matchup. Here’s what you need to know. 

YouTubers strapping on boxing gloves and squaring up with one another was a trend kicked off by KSI and Joe Weller back in 2018. Since then, the concept has exploded – including KSI forging rivalries with the Paul brothers and fighting Logan Paul in a professional bout in Los Angeles. 

Typically, it has been all about a YouTuber fighting another content creator, but Jake Paul’s next fight is a little different. He’s fighting former NBA star Nate Robinson on the undercard of the Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. exhibition bout – which is sure to be a spectacle itself. So, here’s what you need to know.

What time is Jake Paul vs Nate Robinson?

Despite the attention the YouTuber brings, the Paul vs Robinson bout isn’t the main event of the evening, so it’s hard to nail down an exact start time. 

Some reports have suggested that the pair should make their ring walks at around 4 am GMT on Sunday, November 29. In the US, that’ll still be Saturday, November 28 at 8 pm PST/11 pm EST, given that the main event is due to start an hour later at 9 pm PST. 

Of course, this could change given the results of the previous fights, so if you don’t want to miss a moment of it, you’ll just have to tune in from the start
