Logan Paul went to Instagram denying this claim.
Logan Paul went ahead and stated:
‘Yo, I’m seeing this narrative going around that, there’s one part in the fight where Floyd punched me and I kind of leaned on him a little bit. It looks like I kind of went limp.
‘People are trying to spin it and say he knocked me out and caught me and kept me up to keep the fight going to the eighth round.
‘Shut the f*** up. Like, just shut the f*** up. Like, stop trying to discredit what happened last night.
‘Make no mistake, he got a lot of good punches in; there’s a couple of photos I got f***ed up in a couple of shots, I didn’t know my face could make that shape.’
‘But never rocked, never blacked out, never obviously got knocked out.’ ‘He didn’t hold me up, he tried to take me out but he couldn’t. It was great.’
Whatever may be the case it is sure that both the fighters are certain to take home millions.
