KSI v Logan Paul: The biggest fight you have never heard of
The next big thing to break the internet since Kim Kardashian
Although not a Heavyweight Championship, this YouTube fight between KSI and Logan Paul is expected to attract enough viewers to rival the likes of Anthony Joshua.
Right now you might be wondering who the hell are KSI and Logan Paul?
KSI and Logan Paul are two of the biggest YouTube personalities on the planet.
Logan Paul hails from the US and found fame on the short video app Vine. When Vine shut down, he set up a YouTube channel to continue creating his prank videos and while that might sound like just a hobby, it has earned him around US $15m annually.
In December last year he camped in Japan’s Aokigahara forest which is a known place that people commit suicide. He subsequently filmed a dead body, uploaded it to YouTube and got torn to shreds by the internet with people signing a petition to ban him from YouTube.
KSI is a British YouTuber who first started making videos of himself playing FIFA.
He is famous for his disses at other YouTubers, most notably when he challenged and defeated fellow YouTuber Joe Weller to a boxing match. That match itself attracted 16 million live viewers on YouTube and just as many have watched the replay since.
After the above fight, KSI called out every YouTuber to take him on including Logan Paul. After both traded fiery videos, the fight was set.
What are the odds?
When first announced, KSI was the odds on favourite at $1.80 and Logan Paul was at $2.20. However in the past week we have watched a big move with Paul firming to favourite at $1.83* with Sportsbet while KSI has drifted out to $2.30* with Unibet.
When is it and how can I watch it?
There are actually two fights taking place, one in the UK and one in the US in February 2019.
This weekend’s fight is taking place at the Manchester Arena on Saturday 7pm BST (Sunday 4am AEST).
The fight will be streamed Youtube but it will cost you $13.50 to be part of the tens of millions of other viewers tuning into watch these two YouTube heavyweights go at it.
