KSI v Logan Paul: YouTube boxing fight ends in a draw

The much-hyped boxing fight between rival YouTubers KSI and Logan Paul has ended in a draw.
Briton KSI, who boasts 19.4 million subscribers, took on US star Paul, who has 18.2 million, in the tightly-contested bout at Manchester Arena.
One ringside judge had KSI ahead by one point but the other two scored it even, meaning a majority draw was declared.
The decision was greeted by booing in the arena, but both men immediately called for a rematch.
In reality, the fight was just the first of two planned bouts, with the second set to take place in the US.
More than 15,000 tickets were sold for the Manchester fight, with thousands more paying £7.50 each to watch it live on YouTube.
After the bout, the fighting talk continued…
KSI and Logan Paul had whipped their fans into a frenzy before the bout with insult-filled videos flying back and forth and angry news conferences held in Los Angeles and London.
After the six-round fight, both insisted they thought they had won. KSI declared: “I think there’s only one thing to do. I think we have to have a rematch. Let’s do it. That was fun.”
Paul said: “I think it’s what the people want. Let’s give them a rematch.”
KSI did get one last verbal dig in at his opponent, telling him: “I can’t wait to see your bloody face all over the internet.”
How did the fight unfold?
Paul dominated the first two rounds, but KSI had boasted of his greater stamina before the fight and fought his way back the longer the two men’s battle went on.
They regularly taunted each other during the fight itself and exchanged insults.
