KSI Vs Logan Paul Scorecard From Controversial Night Of Boxing
Logan Paul claimed he was going to contest his controversial split decision loss to KSI after being deducted two points in the fourth round with the scorecard showing how close the fight was.
Brit KSI beat fellow YouTuber in the pairs rematch on Saturday at the Staples Centre in LA by split decision, despite the American putting his rival on the mat in the fourth round in what would have been a 10-8 round.
Instead 'The Maverick' was deducted two points by the referee as he held and hit his opponent on the way to the ground and then hit him once more for good measure as he was on the canvas.
Paul complained afterwards saying he would contest the decision and the scorecard proved that if it had just been a one point deduction he'd have drawn the fight, as the scores would have read 56-56, 57-55, 55-57.
After the fight the beaten man complained he'd not been warned first 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."
In the main Paul suffered from not doing enough in the opening three rounds and for his lack of knowledge of the rules, or at least an inability to stick to them.
