While KSI celebrated, Logan Paul stood confused and his brother calling the sport rigged after the two made their pro boxing debuts on November 9th.
KSI walked out of Staples Center with a majority decision win over the Ohio native on Saturday over a year removed from their 2018 draw in the United Kingdom.
While Paul called for a rematch and was bewildered why he was docked two points in a sloppy affair that saw the YouTuber slip to the canvas twice in the third round of a six-round fight
Paul won one of the three scorecards 56-55, while KSI took the remaining cards by a margin of 57-54 and 56-55, as KSI much like Canelo Alvarez decided the feud finished with his victory.

“In Manny Pacquiao vs. Marquez, did Manny Pacquiao get two points taken away [when Marquez was hit while down in first fight]? And he’s Manny Pacquiao. No warning? Nothing? Two points gone and it changes the decision of the fight.,” Logan’s brother Jake said following the fight. “Logan is the better fighter, more technical. KSI was just going out and throwing punches… he got lucky tonight, that’s the way the cookie crumbles and respect to KSI.”
“At the end of the day it’s bullsh-t, there is nothing you can do though. It’s over and they will probably never fight again, so chalk it up to the f—ing game. I think the commission should contest it. If they don’t flip that decision, you know, then it’s just bullsh-t.
“At the end of the day, I’ve been in this sport for a year now,” Paul, who fought KSI’s brother the year prior continued. “I probably shouldn’t be saying this – but all of this sh-t is f—ing rigged. You see people wining and dining each other. You see people at the Staples Center… Who was at the Staples Center last night with KSI? Joe Markowski from DAZN. This sport is rigged, for sure, 100%.”
“The short amount of time I’ve been here [in boxing], I’ve heard multiple stories about people paying stuff off, choosing fights..”
