YouTuber-turned-prizefighter Logan Paul said his job against Floyd Mayweather was already tough, but his younger brother’s intervention has only served to make his task even tougher.
Speaking to Mauro Ranallo during the Bellator 259 live broadcast, Paul gave an update on his upcoming June 6 exhibition bout with Mayweather, and revealed how his assignment got even more difficult, thanks to his younger brother Jake.
“Dude, this is not an exhibition,” he stated.
“I’ve been saying this. What exhibition is eight three-minute rounds?
“This is a fight and if Floyd didn’t want to rip my head off before my brother took his hat, now he’s trying to kill me.
“He’s trying to make an example of the big brother so the younger brother has to suffer and watch and witness. I don’t know if you’ve seen ‘Scarface,’ but that’s what he’s trying to do.”

Logan’s younger brother Jake attended the recent media event where Mayweather and Logan faced off for the cameras ahead of their matchup.
But Jake, who has made it his business to repeatedly call out fighters, including Tommy Fury and a host of UFC fighters, for upcoming bouts, sparked a melee after he and Mayweather faced off, and Jake stole the 50-0 boxing superstar’s cap.
It means the stakes have now been raised ahead of Logan’s bout with Mayweather. The YouTuber said his physical advantages, coupled with his punishing training regimen, will make him a dangerous threat to the boxing legend.

“This is going to be a war,” he said.
“I am not going to make this s*** easy for him.
“We’ve been training our a**** off for eight months now preparing to fight this guy.
“I’m 30 pounds heavier, I’m six or seven inches taller, half his age and hungry.
“And I’ve got nothing to lose. I’m going in there with that energy, and he’s got everything to lose. “
“There’s a lot on the table for him (and) not a lot on the table for me. And that’s a dangerous man.”
Logan also sounded off about mixed martial arts, and said that his skills as a collegiate wrestler may be better served to MMA competition instead of boxing. And he admitted he’d love to step into the cage to compete at least once.
“Yeah, absolutely,” he said.
“I actually think I’d probably be better at MMA because of my wrestling background.
“I will say it is a tough sport, it’s harder than boxing.
“MMA fighters are legitimate, all-around, 360-degree fighters.
“I’ve had some knee issues on both knees and it’s rough on the body. But I can’t not do one MMA fight before I die, you know?
“I’m going to do at least one. And if I do one, I’ll probably do another.”
