Ex-Patriot WR Antonio Brown Challenges YouTube Star Logan Paul To Boxing Match
It looks like ex-NFL star Antonio Brown wants to take his frustrations out on YouTube star, Logan Paul. He challenged Logan Paul to a boxing match via Twitter Monday (Jan. 6th). Logan Paul, who recently completed what he called a life-changing experience training with two U.S. Navy Seals, was called out after AB notice an online betting account gave an early advantage to the YouTube star. AB responded,
AB follows up his tweet with a direct challenge, telling the YouTuber to,
Paul, at 6-foot-2, 190+ lbs, didn’t shy away from the former New England Patriot receivers challenge. He then responded with a joke regarding AB’s two-week tenure as a member of the Patriots. He wrote,
“I’d drop you faster than the Patriots.”
As for Paul, the YouTuber recently went six rounds against British rapper/YouTuber KSI, which was ruled a draw. In their second fight just last month, KSI was given the win via split decision.
As reported, AB may be looking for his next gig after his recent comments about the workout he completed with the New Orleans Saints. In a video AB shared in December, he acknowledges his over-the-top actions online from slamming his former employers to separating himself from ever playing football professionally again. He said Tuesday (Dec. 31st),
“I know I got a really crusty tone lately. But really I’m at peace. I just don’t like the lack of respect in the world. You know, everyone has deadlines. I guess the NFL don’t have a deadline for me.”

He goes on to accuse the Saints organization of playing to the media with their invitation for AB to possibly make his return to the NFL. He called out coach Sean Payton and said,
“I appreciate Sean Payton and them guys for supporting me and bringing me out to work out. But I think it was a publicity stunt for them. Sean Payton knows the feeling of being left behind, not being able to interact with his team. I don’t have a team. But it is what it is.”
His former team, the New England Patriots took a chance signing AB to a 1-year/$15 million contract back in September. That move came after his fallout with the Oakland Raiders. Just ten days later, the team released him in response to sexual assault accusations.
