KSI VS LOGAN PAUL 2 IS A PROFESSIONAL BOUT
Combat sports has its niches like every other aspect of culture. On one side there is the beautiful technicality that forms a masterpiece that fans are in awe by. On the other hand, there are moments when celebrities decide they want to test themselves in the ring to draw a crowd and split the profits. Dana White said that he would never allow such amateurs to compete in the UFC. However, Youtube stars KSI and Logan Paul know exactly how to engage a crowd and this time when they have face-off, it’ll be with professional rules.

DAZN KNOWS HOW TO MAKE MONEY
Causing controversy by attaching themselves to KSI and Logan Paul isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
In the first fight streamed on Youtube, both men fought to a controversial draw. While many hardcore fight fans viewed the spectacle as a smudge on the sport that they wanted nothing to do with, a reported 61 million worldwide viewers thought otherwise. The fight also sold out the Manchester Arena with over 21,000 ticket sales.
Regardless of the level of the two competitors, they obviously know how to draw attendance and money. Two things that promoters love.
The card will be featured on live on DAZN at the Staples Center in LA.
The card is set to take place on November 9th with pre-sale tickets to be available for purchase on September 9th. General sales for the card will open on September 14th with more details later to follow. While the entire card is yet to be determined, those details will also be revealed later in the upcoming weeks.
