Logan and Jake Paul both began their boxing careers in 2018. Their careers took off after they got involved in an online feud with YouTuber KSI and his brother Deji, according to the Mirror, and decided to take their drama to the ring. Logan would box KSI while Jake would fight Deji. The first fight between Logan and KSI ended in a draw, according to the BBC, but the internet stars decided to schedule a rematch. During their second fight, KSI was declared the winner after Paul’s score was subtracted by two points for a penalty. However, Logan’s defeat did not prevent him from challenging champion Floyd Mayweather to an exhibition match.
Mayweather and Paul boxed back in June 2021 during an exhibition match at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. Speaking of the exhibition, Mayweather said (via CNN), “I had fun … He’s better than I thought.” He continued, “He’s a tough, rough-and-tumble competitor … I was surprised by him tonight.” In May, Paul claimed However, told TMZ, Mayweather still hasn’t paid him in full for the exhibition — he said he’s missing a few million — and that he would take Mayweather to court.
Despite Logan’s struggles with KSI and the showdown with Mayweather, Jake appeared to be the more competitive boxer of the two. However, it seems that Logan is now also serious about his career in fighting, but not in boxing.
