YouTuber Logan Paul released a video on Thursday in which he’s shown to be locking horns inside a boxing ring with an NFL star’s four brothers as the famous football player referees the action. Former New England Patriots star and current Tampa Bay Buccaneer Rob Gronkowski didn’t box Paul himself in the video, but his four massive brothers did: Gordie Jr., Dan, Chris and Glenn.
Paul appears to dominate all four of the “Gronk” brothers, and Rob ends the video with a stern warning for the YouTuber about a potential future fight.
You can watch Paul get the better of the Gronkowski brothers in the vial video below.
Gronkowski Brothers Are Professional Athletes
While Rob Gronkowski is easily the most well-known of the Gronkowski brothers, all five of the siblings played professional sports in some capacity. Gordie Gronkowski Jr. played minor league baseball while the rest of the brothers joined Rob in being football players inside the NFL.
So all four of the people Paul boxed are elite athletes, and the video shows Paul getting the better of the exchanges and knocking most of the brothers down.
However, it’s important to note the video is heavily edited by Paul’s team and not just uncut sparring footage that shows all the action. Moreover, it should also be noted that Paul has been training in boxing for a few years now, and it doesn’t appear from the footage that any of the Gronkowski brothers entered the ring with the same level of skill or experience.
Regardless, Paul posted the video as evidence of how seriously he’s preparing for his upcoming boxing battle against retired legend Floyd Mayweather Jr. To his credit, Paul looks a few levels above the Gronk bros as far as boxing goes, and that’s at least data to suggest he can beat up somebody.
Paul is 0-1 a pro boxer, so that’s important data for someone hoping to fight the 50-0 best boxer of a generation.
Gronk’s Warning: ‘I’m Going To Be Coming for You’
In the video, Rob Gronkowski can be seen congratulating and warning Paul after watching him wreck his four brothers.
“I was entertained…but I want to give it up to Logan, congratulations and good job…You did just win, though. From one champ to another: Congratulations,” Gronkowski said.
But the NFL star also issued a warning to Paul. He said, “Just don’t think you’re going to be champ for too long, because one day I’m going to be coming for you.”
Mayweather vs. Paul on June 6
Mayweather vs. Paul is a special exhibition boxing pay-per-view bout scheduled for June 6. The eight-round boxing match won’t be a legitimate prizefight, but it features two of the most popular celebrities in the world.
Mayweather, 44, is almost two decades older than his 26-year-old opponent, and the boxing legend is likely to be outweighed by 30 pounds on fight night. Regardless, Mayweather is a heavy favorite in the fight because he’s the premier fighter of his era.
Paul is an 0-1 novice who has never competed against any legit prizefighter. That changes on June 6 when he steps inside the ring with Mayweather.
