Logan Paul opened up on his association with slap fighting while recollecting the incident wherein he knocked out a 300lbs man.
Slap fighting seems to have taken over the internet over the past few months with Dana White's entry into the sport with the Slap Fighting League. However, long before the UFC president decided to start his own promotion, social media star Logan Paul was one of the first notable names to have been associated with the sport.
Back in 2019, 'The Maverick' came to know about underground slap fighting which seemingly originated in Russia, and wanted to participate in it. Speaking about the same during a recent episode of his show, Impaulsive, Paul stated:
"I found the organization that puts on the slap fighting contests and I decided to enter as a participant. We actually scripted a whole thing around it, it was going to be like 'mockumentary' with me actually entering the slap fighting competition."
"I was practicing slaps for like three weeks. I had a guy come to my house who's like the United States' slap expert. So, this guy is standing across of me 300lb guy, large man and he's like one shot, open palm, let's see where you're at, let's see where your starting point is. Fu*king c**k back, sounds like a whip, knocked this guy out."

Is Logan Paul returning to the boxing ring this year?
Logan Paul has been out of the boxing ring since 2021. He was last seen in action against Floyd Mayweather in an eight-round exhibition bout. Since then, there has been a lot of speculation surrounding his return to the ring, however, 'The Maverick' has failed to enter the squared circle just yet.
Moreover, Paul was slated to be fighting in January this year, however, his hopes were shattered after he tore his ACL and MCL at the WWE Crown Jewel back in November last year. But it seems like the 27-year-old has recovered from the injury sooner than expected and is set to return to the boxing ring again.
During a recent episode of Impaulsive, Logan Paul revealed that he already has an opponent lined up. Without revealing the name on the podcast, 'The Maverick' told Dave Portnoy:
"I've got a new opponent. Not said yet. I'll tell you and we'll bleep it."
