Logan Paul will return to the ring in August, the same month that his brother Jake and ex-rival KSI are slated to make their boxing comebacks.
According to current plans, the social media stars have all taken extended absences from the ring, but will return within days of one another near the end of the summer.
The younger Paul brother has acknowledged many times in the last week that he will return to the ring in August, and Logan was confirmed over the weekend that he will join him.
Paul recently returned to Puerto Rico, where he and his brother Jake, a 5-0 professional boxer, have a purpose-built training facility where they practise for fights.
Jake is anticipated to confirm his ring return shortly, with a summer date in mind, although Logan’s coach Milton Lacroix has also been seen in camp recordings.
The YouTube star’s most recent fight was an exhibition against Floyd Mayweather in June of last year.
He went the distance with the 50-0 boxing great, with no winner declared at the end of the match, in which Paul weighed 35lb more than his opponent.
He’s teased a confrontation with Brazilian influencer Whindersson Nunes and asked UFC president Dana White if he’d be willing to offer him an octagon fight.
Nothing has been confirmed concerning his future, or that of his brother, who could fight a range of opponents once he finishes co-promoting Katie Taylor vs Amanda Serrano with Eddie Hearn.
According to multiple reports, KSI, a foe of both brothers and a past opponent of Logan Paul, is planning a ring return in the same month. His manager, Mams Taylor, has hinted that he will participate in an August event, which will most likely be co-promoted by Wasserman Boxing due to his contract with the firm.
KSI has teased battles with YouTube competitors Alex Wassabi and Austin McBroom, with a long-awaited showdown with Jake Paul as the ultimate aim for his fighting career.
The Brit hasn’t fought since his split decision victory against Logan in 2019, instead focusing on his blossoming music career.
Since the coronavirus pandemic began in early 2020, the YouTuber, whose real name is JJ Olatunji, has released two albums, the latter of which topped the UK Charts, and a series of Top 10 singles before embarking on a seemingly never-ending tour, which will finally wind down in May to allow him to enter camp for that August date.
