Logan Paul Knocked Out 350lb Champion With Brutal Slap, Had To Pull Out Of Tournament

Logan Paul once knocked out a 350lb man with a brutal slap.

The YouTuber-turned-boxer has recently launched the Slap Fighting Championships alongside strongman legend and Hollywood movie star Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The event will take place at the Arnold Classic sports and fitness festival in Columbus, Ohio next week and will be shown live on Paul's YouTube channel.


Paul himself will not be competing but he was set to partake in a slap tournament a couple of years back in Russia, where the sport - if you can call it that - was created.

However, in preparing for the tournament Paul hit the slap champion, standing at 6ft 3 with a vicious strike to the face and the impact was so ferocious that he was instantly knocked out cold.

The individual himself had knocked out over 30 people with slaps but dropped to the turf after being hit in sickening fashion.

There was immediate concern for his health.

Paul's video on the situation, titled 'THE SLAP THAT CHANGED MY LIFE', has accrued over 22 million views on YouTube.

"I ended up slapping this 350lb guy, this slap master from the States," Paul recalled on the MMA hour.

"I just wanted to test because I've never open-hand f***ing slapped a human before.

"I knocked him out cold, like cold, cold - starched him to the point where after I hit him he didn't even know who he was.

"He was 6'3", 350lb and it was like 'damn', I believe I could do that to anybody standing across from me."

The events prompted Paul to cancel his trip to Russia - even if it cost him $30,000.

He added: "But what if that happens to me because they can do it too, dude? What if I lose the coin flip and I don't get to go first and I get demolished to the point where I don't know who I am.

"That was concerning so I backed out, but now I get to host the competition and watch these crazy f***ing dudes slap the s*** out of each other.

"I took a $30,000 loss because of getting our whole team visas, booking flights and accommodation for Russia, getting hotels and everything. I took $30k to the chin by cancelling the trip."
