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.

Just last week at UFC 244, Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal fought each other in what was the biggest fight of the year. Even during that fight card, Diaz and Masvidal were only guaranteed $520,000 (₹3.7 Crore). On the same night, Canelo Alvarez fought Sergey Kovalev and was guaranteed a purse of $35 Million (₹255 Crore). Kovalev made $4 Million (₹30 Crores).
