‘The biggest event in the history of the internet’ may have ended a draw, but it hasn’t stopped the man who uttered those words and took part in the white collar match from bigging up the rematch, before the dust has even settled.

After six rounds of YouTuber heavyweight action between the US’ Logan Paul and the UK’s KSI, the fight was declared a majority draw with one judge scoring the Brit ahead by a single point.

In a locker room post after the fight, Paul said:

Each and every one of you in this room, thank you for supporting me and my brother and I’m sorry I couldn’t bring home the official [title].

But let me tell you something, there is no f*cking way he’ll win the second time. Let’s f*cking party, man!

Logan posted to Twitter on Sunday afternoon (August 26) putting his result down to [his] ‘b*tch ass got too tired’.

He wrote:

after sleeping on it & rewatching the fight…

i should’ve won, 4-2. i was the better boxer & athlete but my bitch ass got too tired ? idk how KSI’s throw downs & illegal hits AFTER the bell weren’t accounted for in the score BUT

doesn’t matter.
REMATCH IN AMERICA ASAP

He posted more conclusions to Instagram:

[SWIPE] Conclusions:
– i should’ve won that fight
– when i punch it looks like im pooping
– KSI fights like a dog in a corner & i respect that
– jealous of KSI’s sparkly skirt
– some people are saying the fight was rigged, literally suck my ass
– my @MaverickByLoganPaul gear is sexy AF (merch link in bio)
– i will not leave it up to the judges in the USA rematch

With 21,000 people packing out the Manchester Arena and more than a quarter of a million tuning in to watch the fight on a YouTube pay-per-view, the pair could be looking at a staggering payout. Almost Mayweather-McGregor big. Seriously.

The two YouTubers established before the fight, KSI would take the profits from sales in the UK, and Paul the profits from their second match, which is due to take place in early 2019.

Metro reports around 773,000 watched the fight on YouTube at £7.50 which puts a potential £5,797,500 in KSI’s pocket and with the average ticket at the arena going for £100 adding another £2.1 million, the Brit’s possible weekend total could reach £8 million.

The purse was agreed to be split 50/50 pre-fight and while official details are yet to be revealed, claims suggest it could’ve been more than £150 million.

My back of a rolling paper maths puts KSI’s total at about £83 million, plus the £75 million from Paul’s cut of the purse and you’re looking at … hang on … £158 million.

Bet they’re both itching for the rematch.
