KXIP vs KKR Live Score

On Saturday night, YouTubers KSI and Logan Paul finally had their long-awaited boxing match at the Manchester Arena.

KSI and Paul's next boxing match will take place in the U.S. in February 2019 at an undecided venue. There was no victor.

"I guess we have to have a rematch."
Unfortunately, the fight ended without a conclusive victor after six rounds, going to judge's decision.

The result means KSI, from Watford, Hertfordshire, remains the champion.

The official YouTube stream for the bout hovered around 773,000 viewers, according to The Verge. While many people did just that to watch the YouTube personalities face off, many, many more caught the fight on Twitch at absolutely no cost.

After a fight that was largely a publicity spectacle, many fans thought that the entire outcome may have been planned out ahead to set the stage for a rematch - and another chance to get more money out of fans.

More than 15,000 tickets were sold for the fight, with thousands more watching live on YouTube.

Jake Paul came out on top in the match after Deji's corner threw in the towel in the fifth round.

KSI, whose legal name is Olajide William "JJ" Olatunji, fought another fellow YouTuber Joe Weller in front of 7,500 spectators in a fight that's been streamed well over 14 million times since February.

"Both fighters struggled with the pace of the six-rounder but Logan was able to drop his hands for long spells, safe in the knowledge KSI posed no threat", the report noted.

Logan Paul, best known on these shores for the controversy over his Suicide Forest video earlier this year, had the better of the first two rounds of the fight, the American landing a number of jabs and body shots on KSI. The other three have millions of subscribers.
