Logan Paul recently decided to go separate ways with his girlfriend Josie Canseco. As it turns out, the breakup may prove to be pricy for the YouTuber-cum-boxer, as Josie’s father and former MLB star Jose Canseco has challenged Logan for a boxing match.
Logan Paul (0-1) who is set to take on Floyd Mayweather in a super exhibition fight on 20th February next year, reportedly started dating Josie this year, who is a model from LA and the daughter of former slugger Jose Canseco.
However, Logan recently announced that he has broken up with Josie after dating her for only a few months. “It was a special time for both of our lives. It just didn’t end up working out,” said the Paul brother.
Meanwhile, the daughter’s breakup has made the father upset. Jose Canseco, the 2-time World Series champion and 6-time All-Star has challenged Logan Paul to have a boxing match with him, and says its ‘not a joke’.
Blunt force trauma: Jose Canseco’s payback to Logan Paul for breaking up with daughter
A revered MLB icon who was famous for hitting massive home runs during his career, Canseco wants the payback directly inside the ring.
“It left me with a bad taste in my mouth,” Canseco recently said on Sports Talk Chicago podcast, “I actually met him when my daughter and Logan came down to Vegas. He seemed like a very nice young kid. To me, seemed a bit on the arrogant side. But, then all of a sudden they broke up.”
“I gotta give you the final details, they will come up. But you know, it left me with a little bit of a bad taste in my mouth.”
Although his sports career took place in the diamond, 56-year-old Canseco has experience in combat sports and while the age gap with the 25-year-old Logan may be huge, it leaves no second thought in the mind of the father.
“Get ready, this is real. This is not a joke. If I hit him, he’s going down,” Canseco went on, “Even though I’m 56-years-old, I do have some martial arts and celebrity fighting experience.”
Referring to his 2009 bout against South Korean MMA giant Hong-man Choi, Logan feels an easy matchup for Canseco, “After fighting a guy who’s 7’2″ and 400lbs these guys look like shrimps to me.”
“If I get in the ring with him, I’m going to use 270 pounds, get him in the corner and it’s gonna be simple — blunt force trauma. A lot of power,” Canseco added.
