Logan Paul has claimed that he could fight his own brother, Jake in a fight that has the potential to be ‘one of the highest grossing pay-per-view combat sports events of all time’.
The YouTuber, 26, has agreed to take on boxing great Floyd Mayweather in an exhibition bout this year, while Jake will face former UFC star Ben Askren on April 17.
The American brothers have moved into the boxing world having enjoyed hugely successful careers as influencers, with Matchroom’s Eddie Hearn promoting Logan’s dust up with fellow influencer KSI in November 2019.

Jake, 24, fought on the under card of Mike Tyson’s comeback fight against Roy Jones Jr, knocking out former NBA star Nate Robinson in emphatic fashion.
The pair have long dismissed talk of stepping in the ring to face each other, but Logan entertained the idea in a recent interview with Access, speculating over the attention the fight would get.
‘I’m a showman, so is Jake, and we had a little rivalry on YouTube that has never been matched and I don’t believe it ever will.

‘Our diss tracks against each other have like 300million views, it was like we were the two brothers that despised each other online.
‘And I think we can probably make a similar wave if Jake and I ever fought each other.
‘I’d go ahead and say Logan Paul versus Jake Paul would be one of the greatest, and biggest and highest grossing pay-per-view combat sports events of all time.’
Logan, who holds a professional boxing record of 0-1, fancies his chances against Mayweather, who retired in 2017 undefeated with 50 wins, no defeats.
‘I feel so dangerous. I feel so confident,’ he told ET’s Denny Directo earlier this week.

‘I don’t know if I’ve ever felt more confident about anything in my life. I’m a dangerous fighter, man.
‘I’ve been doing it for three years now – no one’s seen me fight for over a year, it’s all I’ve been doing.’
Meanwhile, younger brother Jake has labelled his elder sibling a ‘fake fighter’ during the build up to his meeting with Askren, a former champion with Bellator and ONE Championship.
‘My brother’s f****. It’s bad for the sport. I think it’s just for clout,’ he told TMZ Sport. ‘My brother is a fake fighter, I’m the real fighter. He’s 0-1-1, I’m 3-0.
‘I wish him the best of luck. I just like – don’t get in there with a guy who’s never even been knocked out. He’s been knocked down once and it was by accident.’
