Logan Paul unable to make boxing return following broken hand but brother Jake urges YouTube star to 'keep fighting'
LOGAN PAUL is unable to make his boxing return following a broken hand – but brother Jake urged him to 'keep fighting'.
The YouTubers are now both prizefighting stars, but younger brother Jake has emerged as the more successful boxer, currently 5-0.
He most recently knocked out Tyron Woodley, with Logan, 26, gobsmacked in attendance.
Jake, 24, went on his brother's podcast to discuss the win and urged him to get back in the ring as soon as possible.
"He's as big as it gets, and his hand is hurt, I don't know if people know about that. They don't know your hand is broken," Jake said.
"So, I mean, I know as soon as he feels better he's going to be back in the gym and I think he should keep fighting. But, that's about it."
In Jake's first three fights, he beat YouTuber 'AnEsonGib', ex-NBA player Nate Robinson, 37, and retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, also 37.
He then beat ex-UFC champion Woodley, 39, on points in August and signed to face Tommy Fury, 22, after.

But Fury pulled out with a broken rib and chest infection, meaning Woodley filled in but was brutally knocked out.
Logan meanwhile has three times fought before, twice against online rival KSI, drawing the first in 2018.
But they then turned professional a year later, with KSI, 28, winning by scrappy split-decision.
Logan only returned this June and did so in an extraordinary exhibition against Floyd Mayweather, 44, who weighed TWO STONE less.
Mayweather, to the shock of many, was taken the distance when he failed to win by KO.
Logan admitted his brother's success, and shock moral victory against Mayweather, means he could retire a happy man.

He said: "I feel that my brother has checked a box for the family and I am so satisfied.
"Bro, we did some pretty sick things for boxing this year. So I could never box again, really and be totally fine with it."
But Jake – who has claimed to earn eight-figures in the ring – admitted there is too much to be made for his brother to sit on the sidelines.
And Logan responded: "I see these motherf***ers hit the canvas, time and time again, this fire in me, I'm like, 'What the f***, Jake's the coolest guy ever, right now'.
"Bleeding from your faces, the whole arena, 'F***', that's a sick feeling. And it's right here, it's right here for me.
"How many people is it right there for? So like, if I just do that. I will (fight again) eventually, I have to, I love this sport, it's f***ed."
