KSI Vs Logan Paul Rematch Will Be On 9 November In Las Vegas

KSI Vs Logan Paul Rematch Will Be On 9 November In Las Vegas

Nearly a year ago, the world (well, a majority of it) watched on in anticipation as Logan Paul fought fellow YouTuber KSI in a boxing match at Manchester Arena.

The rivals ended up drawing at the end of the match which was dubbed the 'biggest event in internet history' leaving them both unsurprisingly gutted about the outcome.

Immediately after the fight, KSI said he 'didn't care where it was' but the pair would go head-to-head once again. It seems that date has now been revealed as 9 November.

According to Lance Pugmire, a boxing writer who works for The Athletic, industry officials have said that they intend to bring Paul, 24, and KSI, 26, back together on 9 November for their rematch which will be held at the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles.

Just over 12 weeks to go...

Speaking to The Boxing Voice, Hearn said: "For me, I can't stand it. It makes my skin crawl but as a business, I think it's genius.

"As a fight fan and pure boxing man, I can't stand it. But as a business model and a commercial project I take my hat off to them and yeah, of course, I want to know the numbers."

According to reports, the Paul and KSI made a whopping £40 million even though the fight ended up as a draw as they raked in 800,000 pay per view fans.

The plan was for the fight to take place in the States (which is home to Logan Paul) after the first round was held in the UK (where KSI lives).

An impatient KSI tweeted in June saying: "If this fight doesn't happen in the US by the end of the year, then lets bring it back to the U.K. and fight at the 02 next year @LoganPaul". Well, it seems someone's listened to him.
