Five fights for Logan Paul after Floyd Mayweather including Chris Hemsworth, brother Jake and shock UFC switch

LOGAN PAUL is already thinking about his next fight having shared the ring with all-time great Floyd Mayweather.

The YouTuber claimed a moral victory in his Miami exhibition with Mayweather as he survived all eight rounds to take it the distance.

Having faced, and technically avoided defeat, against the one of the best and most lucrative boxers of all time, the question begs what next?

Just days removed from his showcase bout with Mayweather, Paul wrote on Instagram ‘no seriously who’s next’.

And here SunSport runs down the likely options for the social media sensation.

Jake Paul

Paul has been followed into the ring by his little brother Jake, who has a better record winning all three of his fights by knockout.

The polarising pair appear to have no bounds when it comes to entertainment, leaving them both open to facing each other.

It would be a bizarre, unprecedented and undeniable financial success, all key elements of what makes the internet sensations tick.

But they have admitted their parents are against the idea, and even their close relationship may rule it out.

For now, Jake, 24, fights ex-UFC champion Tyron Woodley, 39, on August 28 and will no doubt have the support of Logan, 26, when he does.

Dillon Danis

Danis is a 2-0 Bellator welterweight and a jujitsu expert, but he is most commonly known for being Conor McGregor’s training partner.

The American, 27, has also rivalled the Paul brothers online, mostly with Jake before trading words with Logan.

Jake has admitted he is moving on from the idea of boxing Danis leaving the door open for Logan.

And with Logan fancying a move to MMA, he could even take Danis on in the cage, with Bellator open to the idea.

But Danis is also eyeing a boxing debut, meaning he could meet Logan in the ring as well.

Chris Hemsworth

Thor star Hemsworth is renowned for his impeccable physique and uses boxing in his training regiment.

And after footage of the actor hitting the pads surfaced in January, Paul called him out.

He tweeted: “I’ll fight him after mayweather.”

Aussie Hemsworth, 37, never responded to the challenge, but the offer could still be open.

Antonio Brown

Paul was in line to fight the NFL wide receiver in early 2020, with the pair even facing off in a nightclub on Super Bowl weekend.

Sports streaming service DAZN were driving talks, with Paul releasing a diss track and Brown starting training in the gym.

But the fight soon fell apart with Brown returning to the NFL by signing with Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

A year prior, he was released by New England Patriots as an investigation was launched into allegations of sexual assault made against him.

KSI

Paul’s boxing career started with a 2018 white collar bout against online rival KSI, which ended in a draw in Manchester.

They turned professional a year later, with little experience, and KSI emerged victorious by scrappy split-decision.

A two point deduction for hitting and holding cost Paul the result on the cards, and still left some dispute around the fight.

KSI, 27, has remained uninterested in a trilogy and instead turned his attention to Jake.

But even that ship appears to have sailed, with the Brit focusing on his music career, with Jake now a far more developed fighter.

Badou Jack

Jack is a two-weight champion and recorded a win on the undercard of Paul’s exhibition with Mayweather.

Putting the Swedish-born in against the celebrity boxer would be a waste of everyone’s time and reckless.

But it did not stop heavyweight legend Mike Tyson from urging Paul to fight Jack, 37, despite the skill disparity.

Tyson said: “I’m trying to get Logan Paul to fight Badou Jack. I wanna see what he says about that.”

Jack, promoted by Mayweather, saw the funny side of it as he tweeted: “LOL @MikeTyson wants me to fight Logan Paul.”

UFC switch

Paul was an accomplished high school wrestler and has made it no secret his grappling experience makes a move into the cage more suitable.

He said after fighting Mayweather: “I’d do MMA, for sure, because I am a good grappler. You know, I’m a wrestler at heart.”

UFC president Dana White always maintained he would NEVER do business with either Paul brother.

But for the first time, White appeared to at least be considering whether or not to give Logan a shot in the octagon.

He told TMZ: “Here’s the thing, not to say that I haven’t taken a guy in that’s been 0-0 into the UFC and done those types of fights before. I don’t know.”
