Logan Paul tells brother Jake to retire from boxing after Anderson Silva fight

Jake Paul has been urged by his brother Logan to retire from boxing following his win against Anderson Silva.

Paul, 25, extended his unbeaten record to six professional fights this past weekend by outpointing 47-year-old UFC legend Silva. The YouTuber-turned-boxer has continued to up his level of competition since making his pro debut and has called for fights with Nate Diaz and Canelo Alvarez next.

However, Logan thinks Jake should hang up his gloves following his win against Silva - something his brother disagrees with. "Anything else that happens now is just a cherry on top," Jake told MMA Fighting. "My brother says that I should retire and leave the world and people with their jaws dropped.

"A kid that just went 6-0, beat some of the best MMA fighters and then just doesn't do it anymore. I'm not going to do that, but I have exceeded my own expectations. I think this is just the start, I'm really starting to get good and there's a lot of people that I want to beat. I also want to be a champion.

"Originally I said I was going to go 10-0 and then retire, but now I'm 6-0 and it feels like I'm just getting warmed up. Who knows what ends up happening. I think I'll fight again in the first or second quarter of next year. I'd be down, we can make something happen. I've had such a long time off. I've been training this whole year but the point of this sport is to go in and actually fight. I don't know [who will be next], I need to talk to Nakisa [Bidarian]."

Paul had his first fight a year after Logan's white-collar debut against fellow YouTube star KSI, but the elder Paul brother has since crossed over to WWE and doesn't look to be fighting anytime soon. 'The Problem Child' said his brother gave him a speech just moments before he walked out to face Silva, whilst adding that he is inspired by the success Logan has achieved in the WWE.

"He gave me a speech in the locker room," Paul said. "I love that man so much and he just put it all in perspective as to what we are accomplishing together. It's so amazing to have a partner in crime, the kid is a genius and he's such a kind person. I look up to him and he inspires me every day."
