Now Hearn reckons Papi is capable of fighting at professional level and wants to help him get there.
He told the DAZN Boxing Show: “Salt Papi can fight. Salt Papi’s my favourite. I wanna turn Salt Papi pro.
“Leave him [at his current weight class], he’s a man of the people, he’s got a belly like me, we love him.”
Logan Paul also called on his brother Jake to fight Papi, who also scored a brutal KO of Andy Warski in August.
Papi said after the fight: “If KSI doesn’t want to fight Jake Paul, send me to Jake Paul and I’ll fight him.”
Logan is all for it as he pleaded for the bout online.
He tweeted: “Salt Papi vs. Jake Paul I need it.”
Garcia also wants to see the pair face off, he said: “I want to see Jake Paul Vs Salt Papi no cap.”
