Two of the three judges scored it as such (57-54 KSI, 56-55 KSI) while the third had it 56-55 Logan to produce a split verdict in favour of the Brit.

Paul had been deducted two points in the fourth round for punching his opponent while he was down.

The champion said post-fight: “Last time I was scared. I was scared to touch him, this time I just went in, I just kept going and kept going.
