Logan Paul is gearing up for a return to the boxing ring, according to his recent announcement on his podcast. The YouTube star has been out of the game since his no-contest exhibition match with Floyd Mayweather back in June 2021. While he was expected to take on Dillon Danis in January, he had to withdraw from the fight due to an injury.
However, rumours suggest that Paul may have found a new opponent in Bellator welterweight fighter, Darren Till. While the source of the news may not be entirely reliable, Till himself hinted at the possibility of a potential boxing match with Paul on social media. The Brit tweeted out three emojis – a money bag, a finger pointing upwards, and a pair of boxing gloves – suggesting that he may be stepping into the ring soon.
Till has been out of action since his last fight with Dricus du Plessis in December 2022. Although he lost in the third round by submission, he was awarded “Fight of the Night” honours for his performance. Sadly, this defeat marked Till’s fifth loss in his last six cage appearances. Due to his losing streak, he was released from the UFC last month.
In a recent statement, Till revealed that he was the one who requested his release from the UFC, intending to take some time off to heal his knees. However, it seems that Till’s hiatus may have led to a lucrative boxing match with Paul. While this potential bout has not been officially confirmed, it’s safe to say that it would be an exciting event for both fighters and their fans alike.
