Ladies and gentleman, we are inching ever closer to one of the premier boxing bouts in recent memory! Olajide "KSI" Olatunji will stand in the ring across from fellow viral video sensation Logan Paul at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Saturday night. for the "YouTube Boxing Championship," which is apparently a real thing that exists.
It's a showdown that oozes storylines, even if you consider yourself a social media cynic. The quality of boxing might be in question, but what cannot be denied is the fact that this is a big money fight that's attracted significant worldwide interest (even if it's for all the wrong reasons).
How to Live Stream KSI vs Logan Paul 2
Undercard action begins at 7 p.m. ET, with the main card taking over at 9 p.m. The main event ring walk is anticipated to take place around 11:15. All the fights are available for streaming via DAZN and the Reddit's Boxing Streams community.
Of course, KSI and Paul first met back in 2018 at Manchester Arena in England and delivered the highest-grossing amateur boxing match in the history of the sport. Unfortunately, the match ended in a draw, leading many to question whether a stalemate leading to a hyped-up rematch was the plan all along.
The whole thing is different this time around, however, because Saturday night's fight at Staples Center will actually count towards each man's professional record. You read that right, folks, both YouTube sensations are set to make their official professional boxing debuts.
The most significant difference between an amateur and professional fight is the headgear, which KSI and Paul donned the last time they squared off in the ring and will eschew this time. Additionally, they will sport 10-ounce gloves as opposed to the 12-ounce ones used in amateur bouts.
If you need us, we'll be injecting the lunacy (and allure) of this fight RIGHT into our veins, and we highly suggest that you do the same before 9 p.m. ET on Saturday night.
