Celebrity Fitness: Logan Paul setting sights on move to UFC following KSI rematch

Celebrity Fitness:

Logan Paul plans to hang up his boxing gloves after his rematch with KSI – but will be straight on the phone to the UFC.

The YouTube star will take on his social media nemesis for the second time on November 9 in Los Angeles.

The pair fought to a controversial draw last year but have turned professional for the second instalment.

That means that will ditch the headguards and pull on 10oz gloves at the Staples Center next month.

And Paul believes he is now too good to mix in YouTube circles.

“I will have progressed too much to ever fight another celebrity or YouTuber after this,” he said.

“I am sparring professional fighters and I am beating them badly, that does so much for my confidence.

“I relied on my athleticism to carry me through the first fight and it almost worked; but now I am a boxer, I am literally a professional fighter and I feel like it.

“I would honestly love to fight in the UFC; I want [president] Dana White to put me in the Octagon.”

Both men dispute the result of the first fight which was held in Manchester and attracted over one million pay-per-view buys.

Paul has recruited former heavyweight world champion Shannon Briggs as his coach for the rematch which will be shown on Sky Sports Box Office in the UK.

And he added: “This fight is different because it is not nerve-wracking. Last year I came here with some anxiety about my boxing ability.

“I believed in my fitness and athleticism and how hard I worked but I did not feel like a boxer, I felt like a YouTuber who was pretending.

“Now my boxing will speak for itself, the confidence has risen.

“I am confused by the people who think he wins. I understand his fans wanting him to win but what the f*** are they thinking? I will end this man.

“Last year I f***** around and showboated but this time it will just be a knockout.”
