******** The two fighters embraced at the end
When both men were asked post-fight, Paul, 24, definitely fancied another crack at KSI. The victor less so.
“It’s done,” KSI said. “I’m on to the next thing.”
In response, Paul, who said he would appeal against the decision to deduct him two points, said: “I ‘ d love to fight KSI again – these are the best moments of my life. The more I practice the more I feel comfortable. “
British boxing promoter Eddie Hearn was pleased with his first foray into staging a show headlined by two men with a combined YouTube subscribership of 40 million.
“That fight was everything that is great about boxing,” said Hearn.
“There has to be a narrative and a respect for the sport and these two have that.
” If there are any other men or women who want to get into the ring – and they respect the code – then this can happen again. “
As with most great boxing narratives, beneath all the ugly words is a deep-rooted respect for each other.
When asked to make up with Paul at the end, KSI paused, looked down and then offered his hand. Drama to the bitter end.
What you said
Arx:When you watch white collar boxing you can tell those who took the training seriously and those who didn’t. Both of these guys put the work in and it made what could’ve been a shambles a pretty entertaining fight. Respect for both. Enjoyed it!
Bambalam:Logan won that fight, if not a draw. KSI missed with a majority of shots and the ref gave him the win with the ridiculous two-point deduction!
KritikulHit:Amazing six rounds, probably the best fight of the night! Do not appear to be “clowns” in my eyes!
Akay 721:I never thought the day would come when YouTubers would fight it out in the ring, but here we are. Congratulations to KSI for taking the win in a close fight. I gotta give both KSI and Logan props for taking this seriously and training like real boxers.
