Who is Logan Paul?
The 26-year-old Ohio native and his brother, Jake, first rose to fame for their Vine and YouTube videos. Paul then moved to Los Angeles and tried his hand at all kinds of entertainment, from acting to running a clothing line. It is not without controversy: in 2018 it was heavily criticized for YouTube ripped off ads of his channel for questionable content in the past. But her fans don’t seem to care: her YouTube channel has over 22 million subscribers.in a Japanese forest known as a place of suicide and
As for sports, Paul was a high school athlete, participating in wrestling and soccer. But his boxing record is not really long. In 2018, he fought Britain’s YouTuber KSI (real name: Olajide William Olatunji) for a majority draw in what was considered an amateur match. In 2019, the two staged a rematch that was considered a professional fight, ending in a split decision victory for KSI. So, with no victory under his belt, he decided to … face a famous undefeated boxer. Like you do.
Who is Floyd Mayweather Jr.?
Floyd Mayweather Jr. is a little older than Paul at 44. And he is much, much more experienced in the ring. He won 15 major world titles in five weight classes, with a 50-0 record in the sport, a bronze medal at the 1996 Olympics and three US Golden Gloves Championships, among other titles. (Note that he won this Olympic medal when Logan Paul was only one year old.)
So why, then, is the? It’s not about boxing – the fight won’t count anywhere, it’s an exhibition. Think about these two irresistible elements: money and fame.
“It’s likely that only the promise of another lucrative payday could convince ‘Money’ Mayweather to put his gloves back on, and Paul provides an opponent with major name recognition despite limited boxing experience,” the Washington Post reported. The newspaper noted that for Paul, it wasn’t about who wins, but about exposure, which makes him even more famous and opens up more opportunities and future payrolls for him.
