'We’re getting back in the ring' – Logan Paul announces he will RETURN to boxing in December after starring in WWE | The Sun

LOGAN PAUL has announced his return to the boxing ring – and he's eyeing a December dust-up.

The YouTube superstar hasn't set foot inside the ring since his eight-rounder with boxing legend Floyd Mayweather last June.



But the 27-year-old is back in the gym and hoping to throw down before the end of the year.

During an appearance on The Pat McAfee Show, Paul said: “I’m a boxer again. We’re getting back in the ring.

"We’re going to go from professional sport to professional sport. I want to get a fight in December."

An opponent for Paul's comeback fight hasn't been finalised, although he does have a couple of names in mind for his next opponent.

He said: "I have some people in mind, but I can’t say. You know you only get one first impression.

"That’s part of my ability to make moments. I like making first impressions big, so I want to wait until we’re ready.”

Paul has taken to the ring three times but has yet to have his hand raised.

The American fought fellow YouTuber KSI to a draw in a London grudge match four years ago.
