Is Logan Paul vs. KSI 2 on YouTube? How to watch, live stream the fight onlineSporting News — (Jordan Heck)
The rematch between Logan Paul and KSI will draw in millions of their fans, but those viewers may be surprised to see the fight is not going to be streamed on YouTube.
Despite the first fight in 2018 between the popular YouTube stars being streamed on the video sharing platform, the second fight will instead be streamed on DAZN, a sports subscription streaming service. You may be wondering why, since Paul and KSI's claims to fame are tie to YouTube with a combined 40.4 million subscribers.
A big reason why is that the fight being on DAZN legitimizes the competition. The first fight was an amateur match where both YouTube stars wore headgear and used different equipment. Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn wanted to promote the rematch, and felt that making Paul and KSI professional boxers (no headgear) made more sense.
It also helps Hearn attract more boxing fans.
"We made this a professional fight because I wanted to make sure they both understood the code of the sport," Hearn said in October. “The first fight was a decent one so I had to look closer at this. I’m interested to see if they can expand the sport and capture a new audience. People say that whoever jumps on board will not stay. Well, that’s our job to make them stay."
