It’s show-time folks, two of YouTube’s biggest boxing stars, UK’s KSI and US’ Logan Paul are back for match no. 2 and here’s how you watch the two.
It cannot get wackier than this. KSI vs. Logan Paul 2 is here with a vengeance and furious anger. For their second professional boxing match, British YouTuber and current champion Olajide “JJ” Olatunji aka KSI will take on challenger American YouTuber Logan Paul.
The YouTube Boxing Championship belt is at stake and it cannot get any bigger than this.
While the last match in 2018 was a show fight of sorts, the two immensely popular stars will make their professional boxing debuts tomorrow. The rematch, after the last white-collar amateur boxing fight between the two ended in a majority draw, will happen at the Staples Center, Los Angeles on 9 November 2019. The fight comes under the cruiserweight division and is scheduled for six three-minute rounds.
Background to the Biggest Fight of 2019
It was KSI who requested that the rematch be postponed until May 2019. While he had earlier preferred Dubai as a neutral venue, KSI was open to a match in the US. Then on 3rd September 2019, both KSI and Logan Paul took to Instagram to announce that the fight no 2 will be a professional bout. This means no head guards. Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom Boxing is promoting the fight.
Furthermore, the event is a professional one. This means only fighters with professional boxing licenses will participate.
