Logan Paul Has Filed Official Appeal To Commission After Loss To KSI
Logan Paul has decided to file an official appeal to the California State Athletic Commission following his defeat to KSI on November 9th.
The American YouTuber suffered a controversial split decision loss on his professional debut, where KSI won 57-54 and 56-55 on two cards, while Paul won 56-55 on the other card.
The 24-year-old, who was docked two points for illegally holding down and hitting his opponent, expressed his frustration with the decision in his post-fight interview.
And now, in a recent video on his official YouTube channel, Paul confirmed he has launched an official appeal to the commission.
Paul believes that he "100 per cent did not lose the fight" to his fellow YouTuber.
"My team and I have decided to file an official appeal for the fight, because we just don't believe the outcome was right." he said.
"My stomach just started turning over the fact I didn't believe the outcome was correct on this, and if I just stood by and didn't do anything about it, or at least try, then I'd be way disappointed with myself.
"My team and I have decided to file an official appeal for the fight, because we just don't believe the outcome was right.
"This is a plea to the California State Athletic Commission, I would just hope that you give this the weight that it deserves.
"Because I fear that we aren't real professional fighters, it may be overlooked, but I know this means a lot to me, my team, my friends and most importantly my fans.
"Even if the outcome doesn't come back in my favour, please treat it as a normal boxing appeal."
KSI has since responded to Paul's latest video on his Instagram story, pointing out that the American personality did not mention his knockdown "not counting."
He also posted a picture of his professional record, as well as the following message:
"Either way, Logan's knockdown should have never been a knockdown in the first place. Man had to fight dirty to drop me. And then even when I was on the ground, he hit me in the back of the head. Dirty c***."
