Logan Paul and KSI have a boxing rematch on Nov. 9 to settle their score once and for all.
YouTube personalities Logan Paul and KSI meet in a highly anticipated rematch on Saturday, Nov. 9, from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, live and exclusively on DAZN.
Their first fight, deemed the "biggest amateur boxing match history," at Manchester Arena in Manchester, England, went to majority draw, with two judges scoring it 57–57 and the other 58–57 in favor of KSI. The fight was streamed on YouTube’s pay-per-view service and generated over 1 million viewers to become the largest non-professional boxing match of all time in terms of paying viewers. This time around, KSI-Logan Paul 2 will be competing professionally.
KSI, whose real name of Olajide William Olatunji, is a British internet personality. He has over 20 million subscribers on YouTube and nearly 5 billion views on the platform.
“Finally, after over a year since our rematch, I get to enter the ring once again to fight Logan Paul,” KSI said in a press release. “If I’m being honest, I didn’t fight well at all in the first fight, and even then, I still managed to draw against him.
“This time I won’t make it so close, especially now that it’s a pro fight, no head guards and 10-ounce gloves hahahaha, the time to end him is nearing. I can’t wait to see the memes of him slumped on the ground after I’ve repeatedly beaten the life out of him. He’s facing a different animal this time.”
The 24-year-old Paul has just under 20 million subscribers and 4.6 billion views on his YouTube channel. Paul became famous on the app Vine, where users uploaded six-second videos.
“I’m excited to ruin JJ's face and I want to thank DAZN for giving me the platform to do so,” Paul said. “Last fight, KSI couldn’t beat me with only three months of training under my belt. For the past year, while JJ has been wasting his time trying to become a rapper, I’ve been training every single day. I’m finally getting what I wanted from the beginning — no headgear, 10-ounce gloves, and the opportunity to dismantle JJ’s repugnant face in Los Angeles, my home city.”
No one knows what to expect from Paul and KSI, but the undercard is strong with two world title fights, with Billy Joe Saunders facing Marcelo Coceres and Devin Haney facing Alfredo Santiago. Here's a complete guide to the Logan Paul vs. KSI 2 fight.
