Does Jake Paul steal Logan Paul’s thunder?

It is obvious that the punch from Logan Paul on Jake Paul was fake. The camera did not even show it clearly and the younger of the two Pauls went down way too easily. However, the question still remains- Does ‘The Problem Child’ steal his older brother’s moments?

First, it was the press conference for Logan Paul’s bout. After ‘The Maverick’ had ridiculed Mayweather, Jake Paul got into an altercation with ‘TBE’ which resulted in a massive brawl. Naturally, everyone spoke about Jake Paul’s antics and not Logan Paul’s press conference.
