YouTubers KSI and Logan Paul fought it out for the the tag of the toughest personality on the Internet. After their first fight ended in an infamous draw, the second fight was much more of a spectacle.
A total combined follower count of 40 million made sure that there was enough crowd inside the Staples Centre in LA. It also included stars such as Justin Bieber. However, the cameras failed to capture any notable boxers in the crowd. KSI came out on the top via a split decision victory in the cruiser weight bout.
This time too the fight had a bit of controversy with it. Referee Jack Reiss’ controversially deducted two-point from Paul for holding and hitting KSI when he was down in Round 4. The 24-year-old controversial actor and personality from Westlake, Ohio. Logan badly hurt KSI with a right uppercut and went on to hold his head with his left while hitting him with his right. As his opponent fell to the ground, Paul caught him once more with a right while he was down on one knee. This was what prompted the referee to deduct two points.
After the fight Paul still looked determined to continue boxing despite the loss. However, KSI seemed disinterested in a rubber match between the too. He said he was ‘on to the next thing’.
Twitter exploded following the fight. Here are the top reactions to the same.

JJ has proved that he can talk the talk and walk the fucking walk. He’s dedicated, he worked hard and got what he deserved. He is not only a youtuber, he is an influencer and inspiration to all.

To everyone saying Logan Paul lost because of the point deduction..
They ruled KSI’s legit knockdown as a slip. So KSI got robbed out of a point from that. #KSIvsLoganPaul2

The way Logan thought he had it with his hand in the air and as soon as they said ‘from the united kingdom’ his hand and face slowly dropped. I’m so gassed #KSIvsLoganPaul2

Official judges score cards, Im not a @KSIOlajidebt or @LoganPaul fan, im a boxing fan however clearly Logan was the better fighter numbers don’t lie. I must admit 2 points without warning for a first professional match? That ruined the fight because KSI was done #ksivsloganpaul pic.twitter.com/2GJnBS7aHI
