I have come across the following inequality in my studies


where $\zeta(3)$ is Apéry's constant and $\log^2 x$ is the square of the natural logarithm of $x$. The RHS seems to be relatively close to the numerical value of the LHS, however I would like to know if there exists a way to prove this without relying on numerical computations.
