DAZN has agreed with YouTube star Logan Paul for a fight that would beat him against former NFL professional bowler Antonio Brown, the Post has learned.
If Brown accepts an offer of more than $ 1 million and possibly several million plus incentives, DAZN hopes to start the April Las Vegas fight at around the same time as the NFL draft.
"This would be the biggest fight of 2020," Paul, who has 20 million YouTube subscribers, told The Post in a statement by DAZN. "I am ready to sign my contract and hit Antonio Brown in the face for his baby mommy. We are waiting for him at the moment, but I am not sure if he really wants to fight or if he is teasing because of his punch. "
BoxingScene.com reported that DAZN, Paul and Brown were in discussions. Brown started training with a boxing coach.
Brown, 31, is currently out of the NFL after unusual and controversial stations with the Raiders and Patriots this season. He recently had a workout with the Saints, which he later viewed as an "advertising stunt". He is investigated by the NFL on charges of sexual assault and misconduct. He has consistently disruptive social media posts.
On Thursday, ESPN reported that Brown's agent Drew Rosenhaus Brown had dropped out as a client until he seeks advice.
Brown and Paul have been arguing over social media. Paul previously fought at DAZN.
Its popularity helped the emerging over-the-top platform gain more subscribers and engagement during its first struggle with the streaming service in November.
"We tested the water for what we thought was a relatively new thing between two YouTube superstars in Logan and KSI," said Joseph Markwoski, DAZN executive vice president. “We were able to achieve a significantly positive result in all the key figures that we record, the creation of subscriptions, the engagement of our existing audience, brand awareness, growth, social media and traction. We were definitely interested, hence our commitment to the experiment.
“The experiment was so successful that we definitely want to do more of it in the coming months. We are working to put together a schedule of events, content and opportunities that will enable us to do so. "
If Brown agrees, he and Paul will participate in the cut if DAZN adds subscribers again.
