Logan Paul, known for his forays into both boxing and the WWE, has made an announcement that has caught the attention of the combat sports world.
Paul revealed this week his upcoming boxing match against Dillon Danis, set to take place on October 14. This match will mark his return to the boxing ring after his exhibition bout against Floyd Mayweather Jr. in 2021, which ended in a draw after eight rounds.
Conor McGregor reacted to the news of Paul’s upcoming fight. In response, Paul boldly declared that McGregor is next on his list.
McGregor has ventured into boxing before, notably facing Floyd Mayweather Jr. in his debut. Despite his loss, McGregor remains a significant figure in combat sports, having been voted the 2015 Fighter of the Year by ESPN and achieving considerable success in MMA.
McGregor’s last fight was at UFC 264 in July 2021, where he faced Dustin Poirier and suffered a loss due to a broken tibia, forcing the match to be stopped. Currently, McGregor is also involved in coaching as one of the head coaches for The Ultimate Fighter 31.
The potential matchup between Logan Paul and Conor McGregor has sparked interest and speculation among fans, although it’s not yet confirmed if the two will indeed face each other in the ring.
Beyond his boxing endeavors, Logan Paul continues to make waves in the WWE, recently defeating Ricochet at WWE SummerSlam. His presence and activities in both the boxing and wrestling realms have solidified his status as a multifaceted figure in the world of sports and entertainment.
