Logan Paul and his brother Jake Paul are giving new meaning to the term “family feud.”
The latest spat between the siblings centers around Logan’s upcoming boxing match with Floyd Mayweather. Logan is scheduled to fight Mayweather on Feb. 20 and Jake doesn’t think his brother has a chance.
“My brother’s f**ked,” Jake recently told TMZ Sports. “It’s bad for the sport.”
Jake went on to say that he believes Logan is fighting Mayweather for selfish reasons.
“I think it’s just for clout,” Jake said of Logan’s intentions. “You know, my brother’s a fake fighter. I’m the real fighter. He’s 0-1-1 and 3-0. But, you know, I wish him the best of luck. I just like, don’t get in there with the guy who has never even been knocked down. He’s been knocked down once and it was by accident.”
Logan Paul Responds to Brother’s ‘Fake Fighter’ Comments
Unsurprisingly, Logan Paul did not let Jake’s comments go without responding and offering a challenge to his younger brother.
“My brother said I’m a fake boxer? That’s crazy,” Logan said. “… little brother’s up to some s**t. Like he wants to get some attention for a sec, like go for it. But, I fully support Jake. Whatever drama he wants to stir or create, it really doesn’t bother me. Like, ‘Oh, you’re a fake boxer.’ OK. Let’s box – because Jake is the kid that gets beat up by my sparring partners. That’s that kid.”
Logan also said that he isn’t letting Jake’s comments about his upcoming bout or his skills as a boxer get under his skin.
“I’ve become like rubber sheet metal, dude,” Logan Paul said. “In this fight, everyone’s saying a lot of things, for good reason. I’m fighting Floyd f**king Mayweather. So, I’ve literally become immune to (everything); I’ve heard it all. I’ve seen all the memes. I’m screenshotting them and I’m going to make a video out of them – at least profit off these f**kers. But, dude, I’ve heard it all.”
Others Criticize Logan Paul, Jake Paul
UFC President Dana White has also been unimpressed with the news that internet personality Logan Paul plans to fight champion Floyd Mayweather. During December, White said he criticized Logan Paul for not being a professional boxer and for losing an exhibition bout against KSI, another YouTube star, in 2019.
White also criticized the sport of boxing for allowing Logan Paul, an internet celebrity, to get in the ring with Mayweather, a legitimate fighter and champion.
“Yeah, when people ask me about the state of boxing right now, that’s where it’s at,” White explained. “Didn’t that kid get beaten up by the f**king video game kid [KSI] from England and now he’s going to fight Floyd Mayweather?”
Boxer Canelo Alvarez is also upset with Logan Paul, as well as Jake Paul. He believes the two are being disrespectful to the sport of boxing.
“I truly believe that it’s a lack of respect. It’s all based on money. It’s all for money,” Canelo told TMZ Sports through a translator … “I don’t think we would agree that people that are basketball players, that are YouTubers get licenses. Ya know, I don’t criticize [the Paul brothers]. This is a very risky sport, and if you go up there, it’s very risky.”
