Welcome to Midnight Mania!

Ladies and gentleman, we may have smacked into a new low.

YouTube star and “professional boxer” Logan Paul may have found his next opponent in the highly controversially but incredibly talented wide receiver Antonio Brown. About a week ago, Paul expressed an interest in fighting Brown next, and the New England Patriots legend has responded.

With no NFL contract in sight, it appears that Brown has few more lucrative options right now. At any rate, Paul threw more fuel on the fire, making fun of Brown’s brief 13-day stint in Massachusetts.

In addition, Paul told TMZ that talks of the boxing match are “very serious bro,” so we of the combat sports community may be in for yet another wild ride. The conversation is serious enough that betting odds have been released, which favor the 0-1 boxer over the actual professional athlete by a pretty crazy margin.

These celebrity boxing fights have proven to be pretty significant draws, so it seems unlikely that these will end any time soon. My only request? Celebrities worth-caring about would be nice.

It may not be ref cam, but this is pretty close:

Based solely on my Instagram feed, spinning elbow KOs seem to be on the rise. I have no problems with that!

Sometimes, big hook beats little hook.
