Who Is Logan Paul, How Tall Is He And What Is His Age?

Logan Paul famously fought against boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr in an exhibition event in June, but just who is this YouTuber turned professional boxer?

The 26-year-old creator and older brother of Jake Paul is, just like his sibling, best known for his YouTube vlogging and consistent controversies.

Paul first stepped into the limelight after posting numerous videos on Vine, a social media platform where users posted six-second videos.

After Vine shut down, Paul was at the centre of a huge controversy after he filmed and posted a video online of his time in Japan's 'Suicide Forest' - with a corpse hanging from a tree.

Incredibly, able to get his career back on track with a grovelling apology shared online, Paul stepped into the competitive world of boxing.

Paul, after just a couple of fight before, then went on to face Mayweather Jr - one of the greatest to have ever stepped into the ring - in an exhibition matchup this June in Miami.

Strange mismatch? World's weirdest circus act? It was hard to tell at one stage.

In the events defence, though, it was an entertaining spectacle - but it had more to do with creating a show rather than promoting the sport of boxing.

It goes without saying that Paul is one of the most famous stars on the internet right now - but what else do we know about him?

Logan Paul is best known for his YouTube channel and, in a new career move, has stepped into the boxing ring.

What is Logan Paul's net worth?

According to the Wealthy Gorilla, Logan Paul is worth around $19m.

Paul told Forbes that he earned $14.5m before taxes between 2017 and 2018 - making him the tenth highest-earning YouTuber, with his brother Jake being even higher on the list.

A lot of his money comes from YouTube revenue, advertising sponsors, and merchandise sales.

Both Paul brothers are quite well known for pushing their merchandise on their younger audience, with Logan selling clothing under the label Maverick.

When is Logan Paul's next fight?

In one of the strangest fights ever organised, Logan Paul went toe-to-toe with retired boxing legend Floyd 'Money' Mayweather.

It was Mayweather's first fight in 28 months and Paul's first in a year-and-a-half.

Who is Logan Paul's girlfriend?

It is not currently known if Paul is dating anyone at the moment following his split from Josie Canseco in November last year.

In November last year, Logan Paul revealed the end of his relationship with girlfriend Josie Canseco.

The 24-year-old model, the daughter of baseball legend Jose Canseco, began dating the online sensation in April.

Paul told his podcast last year: "It might come off a little odd, these exchanges I'm having with women who aren't my girlfriend. Ex-girlfriend.

"I've always really valued the privacy of my relationship because my life is already pretty public so I don't feel like either Josie or myself needs to give an explanation if we don't feel like it."

What did Logan Paul do in Japan?

Logan and his younger brother Jake are no strangers to the negative media attention surrounding their YouTube videos.

Back in 2017, Logan faced serious backlash after posting a video showing the body of an apparent suicide victim at the base of Mount Fuji in Japan.

The forest is known as the 'Suicide Forest' as it is a frequent site for suicide.

The then 24-year-old Logan posted a video online going into the forest after finding the body - and started making jokes which many on the internet found unprofessional.

Following the video being posted, YouTube suspended his account and 200,000 people signed a petition to have him removed from the platform entirely.

Logan released an apology on Twitter saying: "I've never made a mistake like this before."

Following up he said he was stepping away from posting and "taking time to reflect".
