Logan Paul’s amazing body transformation, from slim YouTuber to muscle man boxer ahead of Floyd Mayweather fight

YOUTUBER Logan Paul has transformed from internet personality to muscle man boxer as he gears up to face Floyd Mayweather.

The 25-year-old, who boasts 23million subscribers on the video sharing platform, is set to face the ‘Money Man’ on February 20 in an exhibition bout.

Paul has already said the fight makes “no f***ing sense” and thought he had signed a “fantasy contract” when his management presented him with a deal to get in the ring with the ex-middleweight champ.

But, if he’s serious about boxing, then fighting Mayweather is a step-up.

Paul has already enjoyed fighting fellow YouTube star KSI twice, one was a draw another was lost.

Since then, he’s continued to sculpt his physique and work on his talent.

COW’S BLOOD FOR WEIGHT GAIN

When Paul launched his YouTube channel in 2015, he was just a skinny kid from Ohio living in Hollywood, trying to make money by vlogging about his life.

The transformation from teen to wannabe professional sports star has been immense.

And he’s taken some rather unusual paths to get there, as well as conventional gym training.

Before he fought KSI in 2019, Paul admitted to drinking cow’s blood in a desperate attempt to gain weight, as well as eating 80lbs of food a day.

He told Business Insider: “I’m eating 80lbs a day. I’m drinking the blood of cows and I’m pushing a lot of weights up in the air and putting them down.”

Paul also abstained from sex for a month, while he was seeing ex-girlfriend Josie Canseco.

IN PAUL’S CORNER…

Most recently, Paul has been training with his brother Jake – who has also got a taste for boxing, having fought twice – knocking out NBA legend Nate Robinson recently on the Mike Tyson v Roy Jones Jr undercard.

But it was former lineal heavyweight champion Shannon Briggs who was tasked with teaching Logan how to box in preparation for his second fight with KSI.

And Briggs could be credited with getting his student into the best condition of his life.

‘The Cannon’ was so impressed by Paul during sparing sessions, he tipped him to become heavyweight champion of the world.

“This kid could be heavyweight champion of the world in four or five years, facts,” he said.

For his training regime, after waking up at 9am in his adopted home of Los Angeles, the 6ft 2in Paul boxes until 11:30am.

He then takes an ice bath that the millionaire vlogger has had installed into his sun-soaked garden, alongside a boxing ring that dominates the landscape.

Paul is also a fan of hyperbaric oxygen chambers, and uses one regularly to further boost his recovery.

The strength and conditioning training that has helped sculpt the former high school wrestler into a man mountain takes place at around 6:30pm when California has cooled down, and usually lasts 90 minutes.

THE DIET OF A CHAMP

Paul admits he works out six times a week, but takes Sundays off.

And he fuels his body with the right kind of foods that’ll give him energy for his hectic schedule.

“As far as my nutrition goes, I eat very healthy, only really consuming greens and high-quality protein (at least 100 grams per day) like eggs and chicken,” he told Askmen.

Now Paul is ripped and in the shape of his life

“I cut out all pasta, breads and dairy from my diet and make sure I drink at least 2.5 gallons of water a day.”

It’s a fitness regime that has helped Paul reach his fighting weight of 13st 8lbs.

Perhaps it’ll give him a fighting chance against Mayweather next year.
