Jake Paul is Open To Fighting Brother Logan In Boxing Match: "He Can Catch That Smoke!"

There have been many big-name siblings who have made a name for their bloodlines through boxing.

The most notable pair today are twin brothers Jermall and Jermell Charlo. There is also Naoya and Takuma Inoue. Before them there were the likes of Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko, Ricky and Matthew Hatton, Michael and Leon Spinks and Gabriel and Rafael Ruelas, just to name a few.

Anytime two brothers have been near each other’s weight classes, the question has always been, “will you ever fight each other?”

For YouTuber turned boxer Jake Paul, the answer is “yes” if he would ever fight fellow YouTuber turned boxer and older brother Logan in a professional boxing match.

“Yes, I would fight him, but it wouldn't be about the money,” said Jake. “For me, it's about proving to all of the younger brothers out there that you don't have to be in the shadow of your older brother. I think I would fight him just because I want to prove everyone wrong. Maybe not after [my win vs. Nate Robinson] but most people would think he would beat me because he is bigger and looks more ripped. But I'm a real dog. He can catch that smoke eventually. I love him to death, so it's a weird kind of thing to talk about. Maybe we'll grow up, and a year from now I'll change my mind. I'm 23 and make stupid decisions. Who knows what will happen.”

Jake Paul embarked on his path to boxing beginning this year and will finish with a 2-0 record with two knockouts over fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib and former NBA star and three-time Slam Dunk Champion Robinson.

Logan Paul has only fought once as a professional, a disputed decision loss to KSI last November. Logan generated mass headlines earlier this month, when it was announced that he would face former five division champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. in an exhibition bout. Their pay-per-view contest will take place on February 20th.

Please make the Broner-Jake Paul fight so that gullible fans would have a hard realization about the hype these youtube brothers. It will be a harsh reality check

Sick. In a bad way.

[QUOTE=VashDBasher;20944946]My thoughts exactly. If you’re willing to fight your own brother for a reason as petty as that, it’s pretty accurate to say you’re scum.[/QUOTE] I guess just another taboo, and boundary they want to break. Beat your own families…
