Logan Paul confirms next fight against Antonio Brown is not happening


Antonio Brown and Logan Paul were set to face in their next fight

YouTube sensation Logan Paul seemed ready for his next big fight in the ring, but that now seems off.

Paul wanted to take on NFL star Antonio Brown and for a while it seemed the clash would go on.

The pair even met at the Super Bowl and reports highlighted that DAZN wanted to promote the clash.

However, Brown’s subsequent arrest for attacking a truck driver seem to have put an end to that clash.

Paul was speaking to TMZ recently and was asked about taking on Brown:

“Nope, No, it’s not happening. He DM-ed me and he said something like, ‘I am expecting a national apology’ and I said ‘I am sorry, you are a b****’”.

The YouTuber went on to say that Brown needed some help, given that the NFL star has been involved in several run-ins with the law.

Paul has fought in the boxing ring a couple of times and lost his first professional fight to another YouTuber KSI.

However, the first meeting between them was a draw. The boxing match between the pair was also one of the most-watched events in YouTube history.

Paul doing his bit to stay safe

Of course, the fight was dependant on the coronavirus pandemic coming under control. Most sports events are shut and Paul added that he was doing well.

“So far so good, trying to stay safe”.

The YouTuber was also asked his thoughts on sport events closing down. However, he supported the decision and claimed it was needed:

“I think it s****, but it’s sort of necessary, right?”

Paul is one of the biggest YouTubers in the world but it is a necessity to keep people safe now. The American can take on someone else in his next fight but that will only take place when the coronavirus pandemic is dealt with.
