Hafthor Bjornsson Wants Logan Paul To Be His Next Fight

Hafthor Bjornsson said Logan Paul should be his next fight on recent podcast.

The Paul Brothers have recently taken over the boxing world. This includes Logan Paul taking on Flyod Mayweather in an exhibition match and Jake Paul defeating the likes of Tyron Woodley. Now, Hafthor Bjornsson could have an eye on the biggest sensation in the sport at the moment.

On Sept. 23, Bjornsson was a guest on the “Impaulsive” podcast hosted by Logan Paul. This is a platform where the Paul brothers have called out some big-name competitors and it was Bjornsson’s turn to make a suggestion — and he did not mince words.

“You should challenge me next,” Bjornsson said.

The exchange between the two boxers was laid back and light. Paul even referenced the size of Bjornsson compared to himself and rightfully so.

There are some similarities between these two athletes. Paul became a big name on YouTube before transitioning into the world of boxing. Bjornsson began as Gregor Clegane aka The Mountain in Game of Thrones. Now, they have both become names in boxing to keep an eye on moving forward.

While the two competitors might have some similarities, there is one glaring difference — their size. Paul stands at 6-foot-2 and weighs 190 pounds. This is significantly smaller than Bjornsson, who is 6-foot-9 and weighed in at 321 pounds prior to his fight with Larratt.

This is something that Paul mentioned during their exchange on the podcast.

“The thing is, if you crack me once bro, I’ve seen your sparring videos, your training videos, if you hit me with one punch, I don’t know if I’d be on this planet,” Paul said.

Hafthor Bjornsson began with two exhibition bouts before picking up his first professional victory. Devon Larratt filled in for Eddie Hall on Sept. 18 in Dubai. Hall suffered a torn bicep and was forced to withdraw from his scheduled fight with Bjornsson.

It is unknown when either competitor will step back in the ring but it is a priority to get Bjornsson’s bout with Hall rescheduled. Until then, it will be interesting to see which fights the Paul brothers end up accepting and which go away. If there had to be a guess made, it looks like a potential fight with Bjornsson is not high on their list moving forward.
