Fury has now spoken about the fight and states he hopes the pair make a lot of money from their fight.

"For non-sporting people who are very famous in their own right, it brings new fans, new attention.

"Two computer guys are topping the bill at Staples Centre with world champions on their undercard.

"I hear that Devin Haney is going to be on the undercard who is a great prospect, and Billy Joe Saunders who is a two-division world champion, plus many more as well.

"It's fantastic for boxing because they've both got millions of followers, I don't know how many followers Logan Paul has got but lots and so has KSI. It's unbelievable actually.

"I hope they earn plenty of money and get paid well for it because they've got plenty more followers than most people in boxing."

KSI and Paul's first fight at the Manchester Arena ended in a draw in August 2018.


Matchroom Boxing chief Eddie Hearn bemoaned the original match-up but is now promoting the second bout in America.

After stating he couldn't 'stand up there and sell, and be a part of that' in relation to the first fight, he recently explained his u-turn.

"Thirteen months ago when the first fight took place I smirked and pondered how embarrassing it would be to stage this event in a 20,000-seat arena.

"What I saw was a phenomenon -- a sold-out arena, over 1 million pay-per-view buys but more importantly an energy of a new audience to the sport of boxing.

"When I was asked to be involved in the rematch it got me excited, but I had some requests to help integrate the two audiences.

"I requested that both fighters turn professional and undergo the same medicals that any other fighter would. I asked that the fighters lose the head guards and use 10-ounce gloves. If we are going to do this, then let's do it properly."

The internet sensations seem to be making an impact on the key figures in boxing.
