Logan Paul wants to take on Tyson Fury in a mixed martial arts fight - despite neither of them being MMA fighters

Tyson Fury has been called out to fight by Logan Paul who “doesn’t care how big” the professional boxer is.

The heavyweight champion, 34, recently supported his half-brother Tommy Fury, 23, from outside the ring as he beat Jake Paul, 26, in Saudi Arabia.

Now, the YouTuber’s older brother Logan, 28, wants to take on Tyson in a mixed martial arts fight - despite the fact neither of them are MMA fighters.

Speaking on BT Sport, the American media personality - who began wrestling professionally last year - said: “You know what I would do because I saw Tyson talking ****, I would fight Tyson in an MMA fight. I really would. I just don’t care how big he is bro. If you have not wrestled or done ground work, I don’t care how big you are.

“You better land the first two punches that you throw and it better knock me out, otherwise I’m taking you to the ground, I’m taking your back and I’m choking you out.”

As well as wrestling, Logan also competes in boxing but is yet to win after his professional debut in against KSI and an exhibition against former five-division world champion Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Meanwhile, Tyson’s professional boxing record consists of 33 wins and one draw.

However, MMA is very different and allows for a wide range of strikes which include elbows, knees, kicks, and spinning backfists - unlike boxing which only allows punches.

Tyson previously expressed an interest in competing in mixed martial arts, and Irish MMA fighter Conor McGregor even offered to train him.

In November 2019, he also had a training session with Liverpool-born MMA fighter Darren Till, who said there is a 70% chance that the boxer will soon compete in MMA.
