Jake Paul is set to make his boxing return on the undercard of the Nov. 28 Mike Tyson-Roy Jones Jr. fight against former NBA player Nate Robinson. From the look of things, his older brother appears to be following along for an encore presentation.

On Wednesday, Logan Paul released a statement emphasizing that he'll return for a second go-around in what's been deemed "a major event" in the winter of 2020. An opponent hasn't been announced. 

"I'm excited to hop back in the ring but win this time around," Paul said in the press release. "F— you, Jack Reese." 

The 25-year-old YouTube star made his pro boxing debut in November, losing a narrow split decision to fellow social media star KSI. The Ohio native brought up Reese because the official took away two points due to Paul illegally punching KSI on the ground after scoring a knockdown in the fourth round. The controversial point deduction allowed KSI to walk away with the victory and the bragging rights. If the points weren't taken away, Paul would have been the one to win the six-round affair by split decision.

At the beginning of 2020, Paul (0-1, 0 KO) had been linked to a possible fight against NFL player Antonio Brown. But the bout never materialized and hasn't been brought up as a possibility since boxing's return this summer from the coronavirus shutdown.
