As I recall, the only part of Larry's body which touched the canvas against Butterbean were his feet. Basically, the wind from a missed hook by Esch sent Holmes stumbling backwards into a corner, and the asinine referee administered a standing eight count which Holmes was laughing at, the idiot ref's ruling being such a ridiculous call. In later interviews, Beanfart described Holmes as being "flat on his back," apparently forgetting that cameras were recording the action. If Beanfart is going to make up lies like that, then he should make sure no cameras are present. (And if he genuinely believes he punched Larry down on his back, then Esch should be given psychiatric care for learning to discriminate between fantasy and reality.)
