Logan Paul has hinted his boxing career may be over after revealing his targets for 2022.
The American YouTuber, whose channel is followed by 23 million people, has fought three times so far – taking on fellow social media personality KSI at both amateur and professional level.
The first of those fights ended in a majority draw before KSI took a split decision second time around, and Paul then also took on Floyd Mayweather in a high-profile exhibition bout.
Despite being clearly inferior, Paul, 26, did manage to go the distance with the boxing legend, and 'The Money Man' later praised Paul saying "He's better than I thought he was."
His involvement in boxing has continued, helping brother Jake Paul train for his scheduled bout with Tommy Fury – before Tyron Woodley stepped in as a replacement when the Englishman withdrew, citing illness and injury.
And the older sibling had been expected to step back into the ring himself next year, amidst rumours he was negotiating another exhibition bout, this time with Mike Tyson.
However, Paul's latest Twitter post has seemingly cast doubt on that notion, and there was no mention of a potential boxing fight on his list of goals for 2022.
The three things he wrote down to focus on in 2022 were "Exercising Kindness, Transition to Business, Creative Innovation." Under "Goals" he scribbled his desires to build a Web3 community, lead the shift from NFT 1.0 to NFT 2.0, to gross at £100 million, to become the leading collectible portfolio platform, and to produce a best selling book.
A failure to mention any kind of potential bout with legend Tyson, who has seemingly been desperate to continue his boxing comeback ever since he fought Roy Jones jnr in November 2020, suggests the prospect of a showdown between the pair are fading.
Paul outlines his goals for 2022
Only last week, on his Impaulsive podcast, Paul raised eyebrows when he compared "The Baddest Man on the Planet" to his brother.
"You know what they've been saying? They've been saying this: our great grandparents had Muhammad Ali, our parents had Mike Tyson, and we have Jake Paul," he claimed.
As well as expressing a desire to face Paul, Tyson has also touted himself to face one of his former professional rivals, calling out the likes of Evander Holyfield and Lennox Lewis.
