KSI and Logan Paul's fights were the start of celebrity boxing events that have gripped the sport. The British YouTuber eventually came out on top. Their first fight was a majority draw, but KSI defeated Logan Paul in the second bout via split decision.

Their first contest was one of the most significant events in internet history as Logan Paul and KSI capitalized on an untapped market. KSI had already fought another British YouTuber, Joe Weller, but this was Paul's debut as a boxer.

The fight had 21,000 fans in attendance and generated a total of 1.3 million pay-per-view buys worldwide. The Manchester crowd booed when the judges' scorecards were announced after their first fight went the distance. One judge scored the fight 58-57 for KSI, while the other two called it 57-57 to make it a majority draw.

However, this allowed KSI and Logan Paul to fight again. There was still a lot of animosity between the two, and the second fight took place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on November 9th, 2019.

The fight went the distance this time around as well. However, KSI's performance left little doubt in the fans' minds that he had won. In the end, a two-point deduction was the talking point as the referee penalized Paul for hitting KSI in the back of the head in the fourth round.

The final scorecards were extremely close; the fight was scored 56-55, 57-54, and 55-56 in favor of KSI.
