Paul Brothers Looking To Shut Doubters Up With Upcoming Bouts

Logan and Jake Paul aim to silence the doubters with their upcoming boxing matches.

Logan is set to collide with one of the greatest boxers of any era, Floyd Mayweather. The exhibition bout will take place this Sunday night (June 6). It’ll be held inside Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida.

As for Jake, his bout is a bit different as it will be a professional match. He’ll collide with former UFC Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley. While Jake has the edge in boxing experience, many wonder if he can avoid the punching power of “The Chosen One,” something Jake’s previous opponent, Ben Askren, lacked.

During an interview with Brian Campbell of CBS and Showtime Sports, Logan said he and his brother are tired of the naysayers and are prepared to silence them.

“I get it. I get it. We are here putting on a show and we are just getting started in boxing. But this is the beginning of a very long career path for Jake and I. I would be surprised if people didn’t have their doubts right at the beginning. But what happens in two years? What happens in three years when we are really good at this sport and we are beating professional boxers and are very skilled and really earning our respect in the sport? I don’t know. People are going to shut up eventually but I get it for now.

“I mean, does [Mayweather] think I suck? The answer could be yes. There is nothing online that is exceptionally spectacular of me boxing. But in the past year and a half, we have got to a really, really, really good spot. I think on June 6, we are going to find out why there is weight classes in boxing. I’m not some guy going in there and tapping you. I ain’t got pillow hands. I hit hard and I’m fast and I’m tall. I’m long and I’m strong. I’m angry and I want this sh*t.”

Logan brings with him two total boxing matches on his resume. He is 0-1 as a pro and 0-0-1 in the amateurs. Both fights were against fellow YouTuber KSI.

Jake has seen success in the boxing ring. He is 3-0 with victories over AnEsonGib, Nate Robinson, and Askren.
