Five next opponents for Logan Paul after Floyd Mayweather fight including rematch and UFC icon Belfort | The Sun

LOGAN PAUL is training for a possible boxing return this year.

Footage was shared of the YouTube star hitting a heavy bag in February – a signal he could be ready to accept a comeback fight.

Paul took American legend Floyd Mayweather the distance in their eight-round exhibition bout last June.

And it left his reputation in the ring soaring – and fuelling speculation he will fight again.

He recently appeared on WWE SummerSlam, where he beat The Miz.

SunSport runs down five potential opponents for the 27-year-old social media influencer, should he decide to return.


The Brazilian – full name Whindersson Nunes Batista – is an internet star with a massive following.

He recently drew against ex-world champion boxer Acelino Popo Freitas in an exhibition bout and called out Paul afterwards.

And in an interview with TMZ, Paul said: "There's this Brazilian guy, his name is Whindersson, who I've got my eyes on."

Floyd Mayweather

Paul has continued to accuse Mayweather of not paying him the full amount owed for their summer exhibition.

He even rejected a rematch because of the pay row, but that is a clear indicator that talks of a second fight have at least taken place.

On Mayweather rematches rumours, Paul said: "He wanted to, he reached out.But like, suck a d***. "

Tommy Fury

The brother of heavyweight champion Tyson was due to face Paul's younger sibling Jake in a grudge match in December.

But Fury pulled out injured with a broken rib and recently ran into visa problems ahead of a proposed bout at Madison Square Garden.

Paul has traded words with the 2019 Love Islander before and could beat his younger brother to the punch in fighting Tommy.

Tyron Woodley

Woodley was twice beaten by Jake, firstly on points in August then brutally knocked out in their rematch four months later.

The ex-UFC champ and Jake now have a new found respect for each other and that could lead to potential opportunities.

Fighting Paul to continue the storyline cannot be ruled out and gives fans the chance to compare the polarising brothers.

Vitor Belfort

Belfort shamefully beat up a 59-year-old Evander Holyfield in September and called out the Paul brothers afterwards.

And while Jake appears utterly uninterested, Logan may fancy his chances.

The $30m winner-take-all offer Belfort claimed to have ready may also tempt Paul to the table.
