Is A KSI And Logan Paul Boxing Rematch Ever Going To Happen On YouTube?
Since their first boxing match last year, fans have apparently been waiting for the KSI and Logan Paul rematch. The original bout took place at the Manchester Arena and was streamed as a pay-per-view event on YouTube. The pair reportedly made a whopping £40 million despite it ending in a draw.
Some people even said that their match was the biggest event in the history of the internet, which is news to me as I didn't even realise the match had taken place.
KSI took to Twitter to complain about the amount of time it has taken to arrange the rematch in America. He tweeted: "If this fight doesn't happen in the US by the end of the year, then let's bring it back to the UK and fight at the O2 next year.

A post shared by KSI (@ksi) on
"Whenever it was in the UK the fight actually got sorted. As soon as it's in the US, nothing f***ing happens. I'm bored now.
"So lets have this rematch in the U.K. already cos you know and everyone else knows you lost the fight that night."
In the first match, Logan looked to take the advantage in the first couple of rounds, but KSI started to change the momentum later on.
Two judges scored it 57-57 while the third had it 58-57 to KSI.
KSI was quick to announce that he'd injured his left hand early on in the match, which was one of the reasons he didn't beat Logan.
In a YouTube video, KSI addressed his fans and said: "I didn't do enough left hooks...That was my problem - I f***ed up.
"If I did more left hooks I probably would've dropped him [Paul]."

Earlier this year, KSI took to Good Morning Britain of all places to brag that the bout made him 'rich as hell'. Speaking to the slippery Piers Morgan, he said: "[I made] enough. Why do you keep asking me? I've made a good amount.
"That's all I'm going to say."
Pressed on the matter, KSI - real name Olajide 'JJ' Olatunji - eventually admitted: "Yeah, normal boxers do that as well. I'm extremely rich, is that what you want Piers? I'm rich as hell."
The pair have had a spiky history since the match and continue to call each other out on social media.
KSI said: "The people don't care about you anymore. You're washed up. A has been."
Imagine sending me a screenshot of me getting more views than you looool :joy::joy::joy: @LoganPaul
The people don't care about you anymore. You're washed up. A has been. You're the suicide forest boy, and that's all you'll ever be. Step aside.

He added in later: "You can't even break 2 million views anymore lol. Just stop."
But not one to take things lying down, Logan hit back, writing: "Aren't you on your fifth abortion g? crazy theory but: life is about more than views... sometimes it's about... ya know... life ?"
