Logan Paul labelled a 'tool' with 'no moral compass' by former rugby star Sonny Bill Williams
| Last updated
Former rugby star Sonny Bill Williams has launched a scathing attack on Logan Paul in the wake of his visit to Australia.
The All-Blacks legend became a star across Union and rugby league before turning his attention to boxing in his later career.
However, even with his most recent fight coming in late 2022 the Kiwi has no intention of stepping into the ring with the internet sensation and giving him a spotlight.
The former Bulldogs player hit out at the WWE superstar following his involvement in the UFC event in Perth.
He tweeted: “Just listened to a talk on who’s popular with the youth today & @LoganPaul came up.
"I observed how he carried himself at the UFC event in Perth & wasn’t impressed.
"A man that stands for nothing will fall for anything - that’s the category I put guys like this in."
Paul was in Australia alongside KSI to help promote the partnership between UFC and their Prime sports drink.
While they didn’t receive a favourable reaction from the UFC fans in Perth, they undoubtedly had a huge following across Australia.
Many camped out for a glimpse of the two internet sensations, as thousands turned up to catch them in Sydney.
Williams was pressed to call out Paul for a boxing fight following his assessment of the YouTuber.
He responded: “No, I don’t want to fight him.
"I just don’t want my sons to be like him or all the other tools or so-called influencers that have no moral compass.
"I don’t need anyone in this world besides my creator."
The 37-year-old fought in November, suffering his first defeat in the boxing ring after being knocked out by UFC legend Mark Hunt.
He was the New Zealand Professional Boxing Association Heavyweight Champion and the WBA International Heavyweight Champion about a decade ago, however, he was stripped of these titles after failing to respond to challenges.
Logan Paul, on the other hand, hasn’t fought in the boxing ring since taking on Floyd Mayweather in June 2021.
He’s instead been focusing on his WWE career, now getting set to take on Seth Rollins at WrestleMania.
