The highly anticipated rematch between Logan Paul and KSI is finally here.
The two popular YouTube stars fought each other in August of 2018 at Manchester Arena. The fight ended in a majority draw after six rounds, and this time they’re looking for a true winner.
KSI and Paul’s rematch will take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. This time around, the boxers won’t be competing under amateur rules. KSI and Paul have become professional boxers, which means they won’t be fighting with headgear.
Much has been said on both sides leading up to the fight, so Saturday night should be very entertaining.

9:08 p.m.: KSI has also arrived, so both of the main stars for Saturday are in the building.
Also, Logan Paul seems very relaxed for tonight.
8:48 p.m.: YouTube star Josh Brueckner made his pro debut on Saturday against Tyler Smith, a former MMA fighter and won. Immediately after winning, Brueckner proposed to his girlfriend who said yes.
8:40 p.m.: Jake Paul says he’s also turned professional and is ready to fight someone himself.
“I’m ready for whoever, whenever, anyone can get the smoke,” Jake Paul said.
But a little while later he was asked if he’d fight his brother Logan. He didn’t seem overly confident in that possibility, but said he’d win if that fight did take place.
8:27 p.m.: Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn wanted to explain a big difference between the first fight and tonight’s rematch. There’s obviously no headgear this time around, but another key difference is the gloves. The first fight was with 12oz gloves, but this fight is 10oz gloves.
Boxer Ryan Garcia was on set to help explain there really is a big difference even if the 2oz difference doesn’t sound like much.
“When you get hit with a 10oz glove with no headgear, it’s like getting hit with a rock,” Garcia said. “You can’t train for that. That’s why these guys don’t know what it’s going to be like when they get hit. This fight is too unpredictable for me.”
8:22 p.m.: Justin Bieber is in the building.
8:12 p.m.: Logan and Jake Paul have arrived to the scene.
Logan Paul arrived wearing his merch and some shades. He was subdued walking into the arena. Once he got to his locker room, he was interviewed by DAZN and said he’s spent most of the day sleeping.
“Tonight will mark the end to the wildest journey of my life,” Paul said while thanking his fans.
He also predicted this fight will be the “best show of 2019.”
