Logan Paul Claims YouTuber KSI 'Hits Harder' Than Floyd Mayweather

Logan Paul reckons fellow YouTube star KSI has more power in his punches than one of the greatest boxers of all-time.

That's right, Paul has absolutely rinsed rival Floyd Mayweather by claiming that a YouTuber who only has one professional bout under his belt hits harder than him.

Granted, KSI is almost double the size of Mayweather and the undefeated former world champion isn't exactly known for his "knockout power".

But still, it's a pretty brutal call nonetheless and one that would probably get under Mayweather's skin.

Actually, let's be honest, he probably doesn't care.

Appearing on the True Geordie podcast, Paul was asked who out of KSI or Mayweather hits harder.

Without hesitation, Paul replied: "KSI, for sure. For sure, not even a competition bro.

"Clean shots (from Mayweather) and I was like 'cool, good shots, good job'.

"From KSI, I was like 'keep my face away from those hands'."

With KSI being a cruiserweight, simple physics suggests he'd naturally generate more power compared to a bloke that has never fought someone over 70kgs.

That said, Mayweather still has 27 knockouts to his name - albeit against far smaller opponents.

Paul has obviously fought both men, losing to KSI in their rematch back in 2019 before locking horns with Mayweather in an exhibition bout two years later.

There was no official winner declared between Paul and Mayweather, although Logan's younger brother Jake was quick to claim that his sibling had just brought Mayweather perfect 50-0 run to an end.

But while the Paul brothers were out celebrating their - umm - victory, some eagle-eyed viewers thought they noticed something pretty fishy about the event.

Upon watching a reply of the bout, some fans claimed that it was "rigged" or "fixed" when they saw Mayweather appearing to hold up Paul from dropping to the canvas after he landed a nasty blow to his temple.

In the clip, Paul does look rather groggy as Mayweather seemed to engage in a clinch in order to keep him on his feet.

Social media sleuths immediately jumped to conclusions and dubbed the fight a "fix".

Logan and his team were quick to shut down that conspiracy theory, but rather ironically, the damning video doesn't exactly match up with the YouTuber's claims that Mayweather doesn't possess any power.

Judging by that footage that emerged in the wake of their bout, it looks like Mayweather does hit pretty damn hard - and Logan certainly felt it.
