Logan Paul is just days from a high-profile boxing bout with Floyd Mayweather, but he’s still taking the time to clown UFC star Conor McGregor.
Paul was asked about Mayweather’s fight with McGregor in the summer of 2017 and whether “Money” might look to impose his will in similar fashion.
Well, Logan Paul is quite a bit bigger than McGregor, and he made sure to point out that fact in his response.

This is hardly the first time Logan Paul or his brother, Jake, have taken subliminal shots at the “Notorious One.” In fact, Paul told True Geordie he believes he could beat McGregor in a boxing match right now:
“I think I could beat Conor in a boxing match right now,” Logan Paul said, via the Irish Sun. “Conor doesn’t impress me. He gets tired.”
Paul called McGregor a good athlete and performer, but seemed to suggest he and the next group of up-and-comers will surpass current combat stars:
“But I don’t know, man, one day we’re going to get good enough at this sport where conversations like this are happening and we’re better than these guys, Logan Paul told True Geordie, via the Irish Sun.
Granted, Paul hasn’t proven anything yet. He’ll have that chance against Mayweather, though the circumstances are quite a bit different than they were for McGregor’s bout with the undefeated champion.
Paul will not be allowed to come into the fight over 190 pounds, whereas Mayweather might weigh in at just 160 pounds. McGregor had to fight Floyd under a 154-pound limit.
Will one of the Paul brothers ever get the fight with McGregor they seem to be requesting? That remains to be seen, but Logan Paul does not think Mayweather will knock him out as he did to the Irish superstar.
