KSI Vs Logan Paul Rematch Will Take Place In November In Los Angeles

KSI Vs Logan Paul Rematch Will Take Place In November In Los Angeles

Nearly a year ago, the world (well, an awful lot of it) watched on in anticipation as Logan Paul fought fellow YouTuber KSI in a boxing match at Manchester Arena.

The match between the two rivals - which was dubbed the 'biggest event in internet history' - was ultimately declared a draw, leaving them both unsurprisingly gutted about the outcome.

Immediately after the fight, KSI said the pair would go head-to-head once again - and now it seems that date has been revealed as 9 November.

According to Lance Pugmire, a boxing writer who works for The Athletic, industry officials have said that they intend to bring Paul, 24, and KSI, 26, back together on that date for their rematch, which will be held at the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles.

According to The Sun, boxing promoter Eddie Hearn will now be involved in the return bout in the States, despite claiming that the YouTubers' fighting made his 'skin crawl'.

Speaking to The Boxing Voice last summer, Hearn said: "For me, I can't stand it. It makes my skin crawl but as a business, I think it's genius.

"As a fight fan and pure boxing man, I can't stand it. But as a business model and a commercial project I take my hat off to them and yeah, of course, I want to know the numbers."

According to reports, the Paul and KSI made a whopping £40 million, even though the fight ended up as a draw, as they raked in 800,000 pay-per-view fans.

The plan was for the fight to take place in the States (which is home to Logan Paul) after the first round was held in the UK (where KSI lives).

An impatient KSI tweeted in June saying: "If this fight doesn't happen in the US by the end of the year, then lets bring it back to the UK and fight at the 02 next year @LoganPaul." Well, it seems someone's listened to him.
