KSI and Logan Paul finished in a majority draw in Saturday's enormous YouTube boxing event. The fight was scored by 3 judges with the scoring as follows: 58-57 in favor of KSI, 57-57 and 57-57. Since 2 of the 3 judges scored the fight even, the fight ended in the draw.
The fight went the distance, lasting all 6 rounds without either fighter giving up. Logan dominated the first 2 rounds, even taunting KSI at one point by bobbing his head back and forth and daring KSI to throw a punch. It appeared clear that both fighters were somewhat tentative to start the fight, trying to feel out their opponent. Logan seemed well aware that KSI's strategy was to lay back in the early rounds and took full advantage. There was a lot of trash talking between the two fighters in the early rounds, but that died down massively as the fight went on. Out of apparent frustration after a poor first 2 rounds, KSI threw a cheap shot at Logan Paul after the 2nd round bell. KSI was warned by the referee and then Jake Paul, Logan Paul's brother, jumped in the ring while the fighters were resting after round 2 and began shouting in the direction of KSI before being grabbed by security.
KSI came back and appeared to win rounds 3 and 4 and even up the fight. Logan appeared to win round 5 after a massive flurry of punches landed against KSI where it appeared that KSI might have been in serious jeopardy of getting knocked out as he was doing little to block Logan's punches. Fight commentator True Geordie noted that he thought KSI was "in trouble" amidst that stretch, but KSI was able to get into the clinch and the ref broke it up and KSI was able to bounce back immediately and get solid punches in on Logan and ultimately appeared unfazed by the barrage of punches from Paul.
Round 6 of the fight was clearly the most lopsided with it appearing as though Logan Paul had nothing left and KSI obliterated him. Logan had to go into the clinch roughly 7 times throughout the round just to avoid getting knocked out.
After the decision was made for a draw, KSI immediately challenged Logan to a rematch, which was accepted. None of the terms for said rematch were set in the ring. Because of the draw, KSI remains the "champ" and "belt holder" since he won his previous fight against Joe Weller, but those titles are somewhat meaningless since this is just a YouTube boxing match.
As of now it appears the public opinion is strongly in the camp that KSI won the fight and that he was robbed by the decision, although looking at each round individually it's understandable how the judges could have concluded it was a draw. KSI's passiveness in the first 2 rounds cost him massively. The view of the fight could have also likely been skewed by a bit of recency bias because of just how decisively KSI dominated the final round of the fight. Some are even saying the fight was rigged for a tie so KSI and Logan could make more money from a rematch, however the fight appeared extremely close and a draw was completely plausible with both fighters appearing to win 3 round each and the two could have had a rematch anyway regardless of the final outcome of this fight.
The early reports say that the stream reached levels of 800,000 concurrent viewers on YouTube and 1,000,000 concurrent viewers on Twitch. It appears clear that if KSI and Logan had made the might free as the KSI vs Weller fight was that it would have become the most livestreamed event in YouTube history. Even so, the official numbers have yet to be released and they might conclude that it did break that record despite it's PPV status.
