Logan Paul’s trainer wants YouTuber to fight UFC star Conor McGregor or rematch Floyd Mayweather on boxing return

LOGAN PAUL has been urged by his trainer to fight Conor McGregor or rematch Floyd Mayweather on his boxing return.

The YouTuber to the shock of many took American legend Mayweather the full eight-round distance in their June exhibition bout.

Former UFC champion McGregor only survived ten rounds before he was stopped in round ten of his ring debut in 2017.

Paul’s trainer Milton Lacroix argued it sets the YouTuber up perfectly with the Irish UFC superstar.

Lacroix told former boxer Tony Jeffries: “We wouldn’t mind taking on that guy; Conor McGregor.

“We wouldn’t mind going a couple of rounds with him.

“I mean just think about it, Floyd beat him up and knocked him out, so why not fight someone who went the distance in Logan?

“Which would be a great fight.”

Paul’s younger brother Jake, 24, has continued to chase a fight with McGregor, 32, but to no prevail, despite predicting $50million purses each.

It leaves Lacroix opening the door to a rematch with Mayweather.

He said: “If Floyd wants to do it again believe you me we don’t mind.

“If you feel that you knocked us out and beat us up let’s get back in the ring and start all over again. We’ll go for number two.”

Paul, 26, had only twice boxed beforehand, both against online rival KSI, 28, drawing the first in 2018 before losing the rematch a year after.

It left several, including heavyweight legend Mike Tyson, predicting he would be easily knocked out by Mayweather, 44.

But after scoring a moral victory by surviving until the final bell, Lacroix claimed there could have been more to come.

He revealed: “If he’d have calmed down during the earlier rounds it would have been a different fight because when you see Logan really fight you’re going to say, ‘Wow, this kid can really fight’.

“If only he would have done that to Floyd, and that’s what everybody’s going to be saying.

“But listen, 50 people tried before and 50 people got beat up and a lot of them got knocked the hell out.

“We didn’t get knocked out, we went the distance, we didn’t get hurt.”
