​KSI Vs Weller Got Over 20 Million Views On YouTube Last Night

YouTube stars KSI and Joe Weller took their online feud to the next level last night, facing off in a boxing match at the Copper Box Arena in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park that saw KSI crowned champion.

And it was apparently a pretty big deal, as the fight amassed over 20 million views last night across the two YouTube streams - with six million views on Weller's channel and a whopping 15 million on KSI's.

According to Business Insider, even the best-selling pay-per-view fight events don't even come close. The Floyd Mayweather v Conor McGregor boxing match in August last year only had 6.7 million PPV buys, while Floyd Mayweather's fight with Manny Pacquiao in 2015 had 4.6 million.

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