5 ways to not watch Logan Paul’s YouTube boxing match

5 ways to not watch Logan Paul’s YouTube boxing match”

YouTube personalities Logan Paul and KSI faced off in a six-round boxing match in Manchester Arena Saturday night, and the crowd in attendance booed boxing legend Michael Buffer as he announced the controversial decision from the judges.

Unfortunately, the fight ended without a conclusive victor after six rounds, going to judge's decision.

The result of the fight may have been underwhelming considering the amount of build up both Paul and KSI promoted in recent months.

"I think there's only one thing to do", he said.

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.

"Let's do it. That was fun".

Despite the significant number of buys, there were still at least a half a million more people who were able to watch on illegal streams, despite the attempts of the organisers to stop them. In fact, it was already being talked up by KSI within seconds of the result being confirmed. The two are also popular YouTube personalities.

The Co-main event will feature the younger siblings of Deji and Jake Paul going head to head, and the card is rounded out by other YouTube and social media stars squaring off in the ring.

Jake Paul came out on top in the match after Deji's corner threw in the towel in the fifth round. Logan Paul put a "cool million" on himself to knock KSI out in the third round.

At first people thought this was just a publicity stunt for views and the fight event would never materialize, but as the two sides went back and forth for weeks and started training seriously people started to realize it was no joke.
