Logan Paul‘s dad, Greg, ended up in a real physical altercation himself while out promoting his son’s upcoming boxing match, and now fans of another YouTube star are claiming Paul’s dad may have started the entire altercation.
Last week, the Pauls and fellow social media star KSI attended a much-hyped U.K. press conference ahead of the Logan vs. KSI boxing match next month. During the presser, KSI took verbal shots at Logan’s father, saying, “You said you’d beat me in a fight … but you wouldn’t do sh*t. You’re an old man.”
Immediately following the press conference, Paul and his crew were mobbed by fans, and the elder Paul ended up getting sucker punched from behind by a man.
However, fans of KSI are claiming Paul’s dad is the one who made the first move, and point to earlier in the video where it appears Greg pushes the would-be assailant moments before the man gave chase and threw the punch.
Paul has since come out on social media to dispute the claim, adding he did not assault anyone and shooting down rumors that there is pending litigation over the incident.
These guys sure know how to promote a boxing match.
