YouTuber True Geordie has hit back at Logan Paul after being accused of bias towards KSI, and Paul trying to stop him commentating the YouTube boxing match.
Logan posted a video on July 28, calling out both True Geordie and KSI for what went down at the UK press conference, accusing Geordie of being bias towards KSI and being a Logan and Jake Paul 'hater'.
As a result, Logan is now refusing to allow True Geordie to commentate the boxing match, as he did the first event between KSI and Joe Weller.
It was planned that True Geordie would be the main caster for the fight, but according to KSI's agent, the Paul's have a 50% stake and so can prevent that from happening.
So Logan has had a pop at me in his latest video and his team have apparently said they don’t want me commentating the fight. I’m going to give my side in a video today.

True Geordie's video about Logan's suicide forest incident, titled "LOGAN PAUL EXPLOITS DEAD BODY" sits as his most viewed video ever, and was extremely scathing, appropriately so.
Geordie uploaded his video responsding to Logan's recent criticizms, calling him a hypocrite and saying that he is simply trying to get revenge, for the viral video Geordie made in early 2018.
"According to the organizer's of the event, you're stopping me from commentating this event, and I've built a career trying to be the sports caster of YouTube. And now you get to take that away from me - this is your revenge."
KSI's agent confirmed that the Paul camp is putting a stop to Geordie commentating the event.
Yes, it is true. We would love @TrueGeordieTG to commentate on the fight. Unfortunately it's a 50/50 contract which gives Team Paul approval on any decisions that are made around the event, including the presenting team. https://t.co/hQA8UImN4O

KSI himself has tweeted that he is in favor of True Geordie commentating, but if the Paul's ultimately have the final say, there may be nothing they can do to change their mind.
I mean, I’m happy for @TrueGeordieTG to commentate

In his video, True Geordie says Logan is simply trying to play the victim, so that if he wins or loses the fight, fans will ultimately see him as the better person.
"I think you are becoming incredibly skilled at PR. You're painting yourself out as the victim, so that win or lose in this fight, you're still going to win at the end of the day. That shows you're a smart lad, you're thinking about every single outcome, and I respect that.
But, still, you can make KSI out to be the bad guy all you want. Ultimately, you're going in their to punch each other square in the face, potentially knock each other out, possibly give each other brain damage. No matter what you say, nothing will compare to that, it's a fight."
