YouTube sensations KSI and Logan Paul have finally set a date to fight once again, revealing they will go head to head on 9 November at the Staples Center in Los Angeles after their fight last year ended in a resounding draw.
The two YouTubers had an amateur bout last year, but for the re-match they both have decided to go professional by fighting without any head-guards and wearing lighter gloves.
The previous fight garnered over a million pay-per-view legal streams on YouTube, and has subsequently been viewed over 17 million times on its official channel. This year’s event is promoted by Matchroom Sport and will be aired on DAZN, which is an online streaming platform.
The event (for the first time) will also feature professional boxers, such as the likes of World Middleweight Champion Billy Joe Saunders, as he is set to defend his title on the events undercard.
Ever since KSI and Logan's fight ended in a disappointing draw, following six three-minute rounds, fans have been eagerly waiting for a re-match, so truth be told, it’s been a long time coming.
Both online celebrities are quite popular in the UAE and previously had packed out venues such The Dubai Mall and Vidcon DXB.
