Logan even wants Anthony Joshua, he wants them all.
Joshua, an Olympic gold medallist, was forced to hand over his WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO titles after a shock loss to Andy Ruiz Jr. in June. A rematch is scheduled for December 7 when all four heavyweight titles will be on the line.
Paul made his boxing debut against KSI last summer with the bout being declared a majority draw after six rounds.
This, however, was not the first time two YouTubers had met in the ring. KSI fought Joe Weller five months prior, claiming the YouTube Boxing Championship Belt in a match live-streamed to millions.
Whilst previous bouts between YouTubers have been white-collar ranked, promoter Eddie Hearn is presenting the KSI v Logan Paul rematch as a professional fight. There will be no headgear. This time it’s real.
Paul appears to be relishing his first footsteps in the world of professional boxing. He’s now hoping to use the rematch as a springboard for a successful career in the sport.News Now - Sport News
