Logan Paul Floors Opponent With Huge Right Hand In Unseen Sparring Footage

Remember that boxing match last August between YouTubers Logan Paul and KSI? You know, the one that teenagers got all excited about and boxing fans got all irate about?

Yeah, well it seems there could be more where that came from. The former has shared some previously unseen sparring footage from before the bout last year and has claimed to have a 'nasty hunger to damage the next man who's got big enough balls to step in the ring with me'.

In the video, the 23-year-old looks in impressive shape and can be seen hurling a number of powerful punches. The footage is basically a montage of sparring highlights, culminating in him flooring a guy with a ferocious right hook.

That said, we probably shouldn't get too carried away. For a start, it's just chopped together clips, devoid of all the lowlights - I reckon I could look a bit like Mayweather if you just mashed together my best bits.

Secondly, you're only really as good as your opposition; at one point he is basically just repeatedly punching a little guy in the face.

Still, Paul obviously thinks the video - which has racked up more than 1.5m views on Instagram - sufficiently explains why KSI is to his mind dodging a rematch.

He shared the footage with the caption: "I'm a jokes guy but don't sleep on the bad mothafucka inside me... here's some unreleased sparring footage from last August i got a nasty hunger to damage the next man who's got big enough balls to step in the ring with me... KSI is doing everything he can to dodge this fight & tbh i don't blame him. im collecting skulls this winter ill even fight you @jakepaul, idgaf"

In case that was unclear, yes that was Paul calling out his brother Jake at the end there.

However, KSI was quick to reply, claiming a rematch will happen and that he will win.

He said: "I'm not dodging you. I'm fighting you. Case closed. You ain't gonna be able to hold onto me for dear life this time. Trust me."

You have to think KSI is probably right, at least in terms of a rematch happening. The pair reportedly earned a shit ton from their controversial draw last year, and as we all know, money talks.

It's amazing what people will pay to see though, isn't it?

Perhaps in 2019 we'll get to watch Mike Tyson take on Lennox Lewis at FIFA in the MGM Grand.
