Embattled former NFL wide receiver, Antonio Brown might be switching careers.
According to Matchroom Boxing USA promoter, Eddie Hearn, an offer has been made for Brown in the boxing ring. It is against YouTube star turned boxer Logan Paul.
We’ve made two offers now to Antonio Brown, and we’re negotiating a fight at the moment,” Hearn said to ESPN. “I don’t know if it’s going to happen but we’re working on it. Obviously, it’s a fight that DAZN is very serious about, very excited about.”
Tonight, a grudge match between fellow YouTube stars Jake “The Problem Child” Paul and “7-Figure Gibber” AnEsonGib will finally play out in the ring. The fight is the second installment in an influencer fight series that began with Logan Paul vs. KSI 2 last November. Logan and Jake Paul are brothers.
The fight is a co-main event in Miami ahead of Super Bowl weekend.
Paul has experience boxing and lost to fellow YouTube personality KSI in November.
Hearn said Paul has agreed to the fight and is waiting on Brown, who was offered a seven-figure proposal if he accepted the April 25 bout. The fight is also dependent on Brown signing with an NFL team in the future.
