Logan Paul lays forth a “seven-year plan” for boxing dominance, beginning with Floyd Mayweather.
On June 6, Logan Paul will face Floyd Mayweather in an exhibition bout.
Logan Paul has laid out his boxing strategy for the next seven years as he aspires to be the best in the sport. It comes as he prepares to battle Floyd Mayweather, one of the best boxers of all time, in an exhibition bout on June 6.
As he prepares to face Mayweather next weekend, YouTube star Paul has declared that he is here to stay in the boxing world.
After joining the sport with his brother Jake, the Ohio native has been chastised by fans and commentators alike.
However, this will be the first time any of them has faced an actual boxer in the ring, with Paul’s lone previous fight being against fellow YouTube sensation KSI, which he lost.
And they don’t get much bigger or better than his adversary.
Paul will fight Mayweather, a multi-weight champion and a true legend of the sport, in an exhibition contest.
The match will take place on June 6 at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, and will be broadcast on Sky Sports Box Office.
While many may believe this is just a passing interest for Paul, the 26-year-old has stated that he intends to take over and become a champion.
Paul told hosts Max Kellerman and Stephen A Smith, “We want to battle people that will put on a great show with us, bring a big crowd, and amuse a lot of people.”
“That is exactly what we intend to accomplish.
“This isn’t a one-year strategy; it’s a three- to seven-year plan, and unfortunately for our health, we’ve only recently fallen in love with the sport.”
“We just bought a warehouse in Puerto Rico that we’re renovating into a training center, so we’re committed to it right now.
“There’s something primal about two individuals stepping into the ring or the octagon and fighting it out to discover who is the better fighter.
“There’s something about that that excites me so much that I did it before I even started doing YouTube.”
