Logan Paul says he’s ‘serious’ about potential fight vs. Antonio Brown

first_imgThe former Steelers receiver was traded to the Raiders in March but never played a down for them as he was released following a series of controversies. He then wound up on the Patriots, but was cut after just one game amid allegations of sexual assault and rape.Paul believes fighting the receiver would give the out-of-work Brown a renewed focus.”I think we might be closer than anyone expected, than even we expected,” Paul added. “In my mind, this whole thing seems …They say if it’s too good to be true it probably is. In my mind, I’m getting that feeling because I genuinely do not know how serious AB is. Coming from a person who was in a s— position after Tokyo [when Paul was criticised for posting a video showing the body of an apparent suicide victim], and in many ways the KSI fight gave me a purpose, I think this would do that for Antonio Brown, give him a nice payday, give him a chance to redeem himself. It would be one of the greatest events of 2020.” While Brown has no experience in boxing, Paul has been in the ring for two fights against fellow YouTube star KSI, who won their rematch in November after the first contest ended in a draw.Asked by TMZ whether he genuinely wanted to return to the ring to fight Brown, Paul replied: “I’m f—ing serious, bro. You know how serious I take fighting. I love talking smack; I also love backing it up.” View this post on Instagram Beat you 🏈 now 🥊 #SoonTheyForgetA post shared by Boomin (@ab) on Jan 8, 2020 at 3:29pm PSTMORE: Jake Paul calls Gib a doormat he’s ‘wiping his shoes on’ before fight vs. KSIBrown has not played an NFL snap since the middle of September and experienced a tumultuous 2019.
