LOGAN PAUL shared a video of himself knocking a man unconscious after he pulled out a slap competition.
The YouTube superstar was expected to take on champion Vasiliy ‘Dumpling’ Kamotskiy in Russia on May 25.

But the American revealed on social media that he will no longer be competing in the Russian Slapping Championships.
After his announcement, he posted a video that showed him slapping an opponent to the ground.
With one huge swipe of his right hand, the man crashed to the floor before some spectators stepped in to help him.
He shared it with his 4.88m followers on Twitter less than one day after he claimed an “unforeseen an unfortunate event” took place during practice.
THANKS BUT NO SPANKS
The 24-year-old’s statement read: “Based on today’s incident and the aftermath it became clear that I don’t have the desire to participate in an event that can result in serious injury to virtually anyone competing.
“I have the deepest respect for the sport and athletes involved. However, I feel my decision will preserve the health and wellness of everyone competing.
“I appreciate you taking the time to include me in the process and will absolutely continue to support the sport and your organisation as a fan.
“Thank you for your understanding and mutual respect.”
Paul made his name in the fight scene when he stepped into the ring with fellow YouTuber KSI last August.

But after it controversially ended as a draw, the two social media celebrities are expected to go head-to-head again in November.
Paul threatened his rival in March by posting unseen footage of him KOing an opponent before their first fight.
The pair have continued their war of words on Twitter after their last fight was billed as “biggest fight in internet history.”
