Logan Paul is sounding off on the conspiracy theory making the rounds claiming a video shows the YouTube star getting knocked out by Floyd Mayweather and being held up.
Paul took to Instagram to post a series of messages claiming that he was never unconscious.
“Yo, I’m seeing this narrative going around that there’s one part of the fight where Floyd punched me and I kind of leaned on him a little bit and it looks like I kinda went limp,” Paul said, as transcribed by the New York Post. “And people are trying to spin it and say he knocked me out and caught me and kept me up to keep the fight going till the eighth round.
“Shut the f–k up, like just shut the f–k up, like stop trying to discredit what happened last night.”
Here is the video in question:

He added, “Make no mistake, he got a lot of good punches in. There’s a couple photos, I got f–ked up a couple shots. I didn’t know my face could make that shape. But never rocked, never blacked out, never obviously got knocked out. He never helped me up.
“He tried to take me out and he couldn’t. It was great.”
Paul surprised a lot of spectators by lasting the full eight rounds against Mayweather. Say what you want about the guy, but he and his brother have completely taken the boxing world by storm.
