Logan Paul Versus KSI Celebrity Boxing Bout Ends In Majority Draw

KSI, a 25-year-old Briton, has 19 million followers which he accumulated over the years by posting videos of playing video games, rapping among other things.

YouTuber Olajide Olatunji, otherwise known as KSIolajideBT, or just "KSI" battled notorious YouTuber, Logan Paul to a standstill and ended their match in a draw.

Those eager to watch the YouTube stars throw punches can either dole out $10 in the USA or £7.50 in the U.K.to watch the event.

No doubt there'll be more updates on KSI & Logan Paul's official website regarding tickets for the rematch.

"I guess we have to have a rematch."

With Manchester Arena also seating 21,000 for boxing matches, and the average ticket costing around £100, that could give KSI another £2.1 million, bringing his possible weekend total to almost £8 million.

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

Is it possible to finally take YouTube stars seriously?

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

And The Sportsman managed to catch up with the father of American Logan Paul, Greg, who exclusively shared his thoughts on the upcoming fight between the social media sensation, before giving us his unsurprisingly biased prediction. The match between Logan and KSI is today, but when exactly?

Paul, 23, apologised in January after posting a video showing the body of an apparent suicide victim.

He said KSI had "allowed me to take a step back from the internet and once again realise who I am".

The fight broadcast begins on the respective YouTube channels, as well as a specialty YouTube channel built for this fight, at 12:30 ET.

The event is set to kick off at 5.30pm, with the main fight at 9pm (midnight Qatar time).
