Logan Paul is set to return to the world of boxing later this year in what will be his first match back in the sport since joining WWE!
The social media star has had an impressive stint with WWE since signing with the company in the summer of 2022. From competing in the Royal Rumble and Money In The Bank to challenging Roman Reigns in the main event of a Premium Live Event. But now, Logan Paul‘s returning to his combat sports origins.
Paul’s close friend and business partner KSI announced via Instagram that Paul is set to return to boxing later this year. The social media star will compete on ‘The Prime Card’ on October 14th, a pay-per-view event streaming on DAZN live from Manchester, England. KSI will also be competing at the event, but not against Paul.
Whilst Paul’s opponent is as yet announced, he revealed to Marc Raimondi of ESPN that he knows who it is but it would be “premature” to announce it. Paul went on to say that he’s excited for his return to the sport and has been training exclusively in boxing, rather than wrestling training, since his last fight.
“I’m f***ing pumped, man. It’s been so long since I had a boxing fight, and I feel like I’ve kind of been left out of the conversation. But I don’t train wrestling. I train boxing.
I practice for my matches a couple times, but it’s not like I’m doing WWE training. I’ve been behind the scenes just boxing for the past two years, so I’m so excited to finally get back in the ring and show people how good I really am at the sport.”
