After trading insults online, KSI and Joe Weller have taken their feud to the next level with a face-to-face boxing match, making the move from keyboard warriors to, well, actual warriors.

The YouTube stars faced off in front of 8,000 fans in London this evening, having arranged the fight over social media last year. Over a million people tuned in to watch them fight it out live on YouTube.

The fight took place at the Copper Box Arena in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, with KSI eventually being crowned champ after winning by knockout.

In his victory speech he called out disgraced YouTuber Logan Paul, and also discussed mental health.

KSI (real name Olajide William Olatunji) has over 17 million subscribers and almost 4 million Twitter followers, and has been uploading videos to his YouTube channel since 2009. His content is mostly focused on gaming and football.

He's also branched out into music with a series of popular football rap battles, having also worked with the likes of P Money and Big Zuu.

As well as YouTube and music, KSI has starred in a film called Laid in America - oh, and also released a book called KSI: I Am A Bellend.

Weller, meanwhile, has been on the YouTube scene since 2011, and has 4.7 million subscribers and over 1 million Twitter followers.

His content is similar to KSI's, with videos about football - particularly FIFA-related videos. The video 'World Cup Song: Brazil 2014' managed to get over three million views in just a month.

Again, much like KSI Weller also made the move into music - though his genre of choice is house, not rap.

KSI and Weller's beef all started back when Weller accused KSI of faking a fight with Sidemen members as a publicity stunt, before KSI released a diss track about Weller. Weller then responded by calling KSI a 'melt'

Since then, they've been mouthing off to each other online with equally, er, brutal digs - calling each other 'stupid' and 'moron'.
