KSI and Logan Paul square off at the weigh-in. Two of the three judges scored the six-rounderwith the third giving it to KSI The pair, who have huge online audiences and took shots at each other on social media before the event was confirmed, fought in front of a 20,strong crowd and millions of viewers on YouTube. Paul dominated the opening round, belting KSI in the latter stages while taking advantage of his superior size and reach.
The YouTube rivals clashed in August at the sold-out Manchester Arena in Manchester, England and was watched by over 1 million live pay-per-view buyers on YouTube, with the fight ending in a majority draw with KSI edging the battle on one card with two judges unable to split them.
Now the pair meet once again to settle the score in the ring with Paul welcoming his rival to his LA backyard, and this time they do so as professional fighters having passed their relevant medicals last week, and they will come face-to-face for the first time since their fight at a launch press conference in Los Angeles on Saturday September 14 with a UK press conference to follow.
Tickets will go on general sale on the day of the press conference with a pre-sale commencing on Tuesday September The larger-than-life internet stars with over 40 million YouTube subscribers between them have been itching to get their hands on each other once again, as have their loyal armies of fans, and now the countdown begins to their second night in the boxing spotlight.
He will soon realize.
So, spending ten months working to get the broadcaster and rights terms in place first was essential. DAZN of course also brings a top-class live sporting event production to subscribers of their service, which is part and parcel of the deal. A significant deal on many levels.
But after many meetings and discussions, the DAZN subscription model was clearly the best option of all and the one I therefore pursued the hardest. Subscribers to DAZN not only get this fight brought to them but an array of other great sporting events and pro fights in the same month for no additional fee.
I requested that both fighters turn professional and undergo the same medicals that any other fighter would. Logan Paul II will be incredible night of boxing and we are excited to work with Matchroom Boxing USA for the first time as we begin our 20th Anniversary year long celebration this fall.
