The largest tournament in web historical past? Perhaps. Natural leisure? Undoubtedly.
In entrance of an international target audience of tens of millions, the YouTube boxing grudge fit between Britain’s KSI and his American rival Logan Paul on Saturday produced, in all probability unusually for some, a very good wearing spectacle in Los Angeles on Saturday.
KSI gained on a cut up choice in a tear-up that was once dripping in controversy after Paul was once deducted two issues for hitting his opponent on his manner down.
This is how the entertaining – and occasionally surreal – night time opened up in LA.
KSI edges it
First, the struggle. Fury-Wilder it wasn’t, but it surely was once an entertaining from the primary bell to the ultimate.
KSI deserved to win. He was once the easier fighter for the primary 4 rounds as he frequently threw booming rights which rocked the taller, rangier Paul onto the again foot.
It was once one-way visitors till Paul snuck via KSI’s defences with an uppercut after which, together with his opponent on his approach to the canvas, landed some other blow which took the wind from the Brit’s sails.
The frenetic tempo persisted for the overall six rounds, with KSI – whose actual title is Olajide Olayinka Williams Olatunji – profitable 57-54, 56-55, 55-56 at the judges’ scorecards.
Extra to apply.
