Jake Paul Claims All Boxing Is 'Rigged' After Brother's Controversial Loss To KSI
Logan Paul's brother Jake has claimed the whole of boxing is 'rigged' after Logan's controversial split decision loss to KSI on Saturday night.
The two YouTubers fought in the Staples Centre in LA, in a rematch of their non professional first fight over a year ago, with KSI coming out on top on the scorecards.
It was Paul who claimed the only knockdown of the contest in the fourth round but was also deducted two points, which cost him the fight, for holding and punching his opponent after knocking him to the ground.
The controversial decision to penalise Paul two points didn't go down well with his brother, with Jake claiming to Behind The Gloves that the whole sport of boxing was 'rigged,' saying, "They'll contest the two-point decision. The commission should contest it.
"It's just bullsh*t, at the end of the day I've been in this sport for a year now - and I shouldn't be saying this but all this sh*t is rigged.
"Everyone wining and dining each other, you see who was at the Staples Centre last night? Joe Markowski with DAZN.
"This sport is rigged, for sure."
KSI knocked Paul down in the third round but it was ruled out as a legitimate knockdown by the referee, although the Brit still won the round 10-9 on all three cards.
The American recovered though and had the better of the fourth round, knocking his opponent down with a big right uppercut.
That would have meant winning the round by two points, and giving him the win as the scorecards later showed, but he held on to his opponent, hit him and then hit him again when KSI was on the canvas, resulting in a two point deduction.

After the fight Logan said he would contest the decision, saying, "I let emotions get the best of me.
"No warning and I got two points taken away from me.
"I would love to contest the commission."
Unfortunately for 'the Maverick' there won't be a rematch either way, with KSI claiming the feud was 'done.'
