KSI 'respects' Logan Paul following victory in YouTuber boxing match in LA

That’s it, the YouTube rivalry has finally been settled as KSI beats Logan Paul in the boxing ring via a split decision.

It was a night of controversy and heart as the British star travelled to the Staples Centre, getting back up from a knockdown in the fourth round to go on and win.

Paul’s knockdown of KSI in the fourth was in vain as the 24-year-old threw an illegal punch after, with referee Jack Reiss deducting him points.

The pair came face to face in the ring after and after sharing six rounds, settled the score with a handshake and a hug.

KSI admitted that in the first bout, he was ‘scared’ of Paul.

“Last time I was scared, I was scared to fight. This time I just went in and kept going and going,” said KSI in the ring.

“I’m a dog. He hit me hard. But he hit me in the back of the head. It is what it is. Your boy is happy and your boy is VICTORIOUS. Happy days. It took me a minute to collect myself but I came back at it and kept going. That’s boxing. I don’t want people to think I’m weak. I’m a fighter. I keep going. And that’s it.

“I’ve never worked so hard. In the ring and in camp. I kept going and I was ready, I was on fire. He couldn’t deal with my jab. He kept moving but I got him.”
