Logan Paul wants to have a fight against Chris Hemsworth.
The YouTube star is set to face undefeated former world boxing champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. in the ring next month for a ‘special exhibition fight’ and has now set his sights on a bout with the ‘Thor’ star in the future.
Responding to a video uploaded by Chris showing himself working on the pads, Logan replied: “I’ll fight him after Mayweather.”
Hemsworth is a big UFC fan and has used martial arts in his training regimes, but has never had a professional fight unlike Logan – who lost by a split-decision against fellow YouTube star KSI in 2019.
Logan’s younger brother Jake is not convinced about his brother’s chances of beating Mayweather, 43, and believes that the match-up will damage boxing’s reputation.
He said: “My brother’s f*****.
“It’s bad for the sport. I think it’s just for clout.
“I wish him the best of luck.
“I just like – don’t get in there with a guy who’s never even been knocked out. He’s been knocked down once and it was by accident.”
Jake has enjoyed a more successful start to his boxing career after tasting victory in his first two fights and he hopes to take on Mayweather after his sibling’s bout.
Jake responded to Logan’s challenge to Hemsworth, by writing: “And then I’ll fight Mayweather.”
The news comes after Justin Bieber joked that he still hopes to challenge Tom Cruise to a fight and suggested that the ‘Mission: Impossible’ actor would be “toast”.
The 26-year-old pop star took to Twitter last June to challenge the 58-year-old Hollywood actor to an MMA fight – but Justin later admitted it was a ridiculous idea.
And following the release of his music video for ‘Anyone’, the ‘Sorry’ hitmaker posted a black and white snap of him from the promo in the ring wearing boxing shorts with his name emblazoned across the waistband on Instagram and referenced his previous remarks as he quipped in the caption: “Tom Cruise is toast.”
