Two of the world’s most popular YouTubers Logan Paul and KSI are all set to fight each other in the rematch at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
This time both the YouTubers will be fighting with Queensbury boxing rules, which means both the boxers will be fighting without headgears. The fight is mainly aimed at the young Gen Z demography. The first fight did exceptionally well on PPV as it sold around 1.2 million buys.
The rematch, however, will be streamed on DAZN in the United States. DAZN is a sports streaming platform that has committed hundreds of millions of dollars towards boxing and has Canelo Alvarez, Anthony Joshua, Oleksandr Usky etc, who are regarded as the sport’s biggest stars.
Both fighters have a guaranteed purse of $900,000 (₹6.5 Crore). Both fighters will surely make millions from this event if the gate revenue and sponsorships are to be included. They will also be getting a percentage of UK Box Office PPV.
Logan Paul and KSI will each earn $900,000 guaranteed on Saturday for their fight at Staples Center, per the CSAC.
Devin Haney is making $1 million for his WBC title defense.
