Jake and Logan are a couple. Ex-heavyweight champion slams Paul for ‘conning the boxing audience.’
Since their debut in boxing, the Paul brothers have divided opinion, with one former heavyweight world champion claiming they are “not legitimate boxers.”
Tim Witherspoon, a former heavyweight champion, has accused YouTubers Logan and Jake Paul of “conning the boxing public” with their professional careers in the sport.
Both brothers have competed in professional boxing matches, with Logan being the first to do so in 2019 when he faced British social media star KSI.
Jake made his professional boxing debut against another YouTuber, AnEsonGib, in January of the following year, but has since stepped up his game with fights against basketballer Nate Robinson and MMA fighters Ben Askren and Tyrel Woodley.
When he walks into the ring with Tommy Fury next month, the younger brother will face a true boxer for the first time.
While their fights have been officially sanctioned, not everyone believes it is fair for celebrities to enter the sport in this manner.
One of them is Witherspoon, who believes their presence on the pro boxing scene is demeaning to all others who have worked so hard to achieve the same level of success.
He told The Sun, “I think they should separate that form of entertainment so that everyone knows it’s only displays.” “It’s a shame those two brothers are up there denigrating boxers who have put in a lot of effort.
“You know what, there isn’t nobody in the top ten right now that these brothers are fighting; they know what they’re doing; they’re trying to get top men on TV who aren’t at their prime or non-boxers.”
Is it appropriate for Jake and Logan Paul to fight professionally? Let us know what you think in the comments area.
While Jake Paul’s meeting with Tyson Fury’s younger brother has been confirmed, Logan is said to be planning a future fight with heavyweight icon Mike Tyson.
Any thought that Paul could lay a serious glove on ‘The Baddest Man on the Planet’ was laughed off by Witherspoon, who memorably defeated British boxing icon Frank Bruno in their 1986 WBA title bout.
“The vast majority of people are aware that they will not be able to defeat a top ten ranked actual boxer. [Logan] will be killed by Mike Tyson “Continuing, the 63-year-old.
“He’s not going to be able to harm Mike in any way. Mike is going to assassinate him. Mike might not even be able to harm him. The news is summarized by Brinkwire.
