Jake Paul's sparring partner calls for YouTuber and brother Logan to battle UFC's Nick and Nate Diaz in two-fight series

JAKE and Logan Paul have been urged to secure a two-fight, battle of the brothers deal with Nick and Nate Diaz.

The YouTubers have emerged as two of the most disputed and polarising figures in boxing.

Jake, who fights Tommy Fury on December 18, has called out UFC star Nate Diaz in the past.

And on his next undercard, former sparring partner Anthony Taylor, rematches Diaz's team-mate Chris Avila.

And while Taylor does not have his eye on either of the Diaz brothers, he called on Jake and Logan to pit themselves against the UFC veterans.

He told SunSport: "I’m not worried about Nate or Nick.

"I’ll let Jake and Logan handle that if it needs to be. The Paul brothers versus the Diaz brothers.

"But what I can say I’m interested in would be fighting Jake Shields or Gilbert Melendez, Team Paul versus Team Diaz.”


Logan, 26, has only boxed three times before, twice against online rival KSI, with the first a white collar bout in 2018 which resulted a draw.

The American then lost the rematch a year later by scrappy split-decision when they turned professional.

Then, in June, Logan return in an extraordinary exhibition with Floyd Mayweather ring legend which ended with no winner after it went the distance.

The social media sensation is now rumoured to be in talks with Mike Tyson, 55, who made his comeback last November against Roy Jones Jr.

Meanwhile, Jake, 24, is 4-0 with wins over YouTuber 'AnEsonGib', ex-NBA star Nate Robinson, as well as former UFC pair Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley.

Taylor was his sparring partner before fights with ex-MMA champions Askren and Woodley.

He even featured on the undercard of the latter, losing to Jake's next opponent Fury, 22.

And he will again feature on the pay-per-view bill when his old sparring partner and opponent fight, facing old ground in Avila, who he beat in the cage last year.

Taylor said: "Jake’s manager Nakisa hit me up and said, ‘Hey, what do you know about Chris Avila?’

“And I’m like, ‘Well, me and Chris Avila don’t like each other’. I beat him up in Bellator and Nate didn’t like the fact I beat him up and was showboating.

“So Nakisa was like, ‘Look, I want you to fight Chris Avila, I think it will be a good win for you and a good fight’.”
