The YouTube superstars’ superfight night in Manchester, England — featuring Logan Paul vs. KSI and Jake Paul vs. Deji — is over … after the judges called the second battle of the bros a draw.
The 2 went the 6-round distance in an entertaining and exhausting fight, but in the end KSI’s hand was raised … along with Logan’s.
The judges’ scorecards came out to a majority draw, which can only mean one thing — REMATCH!!
As for the fight … Logan dominated the first 2 rounds by landing a number of jabs and body shots, but the momentum seemed to turn after KSI threw a cheap shot after the bell at the end of round 2 … causing Jake to angrily jump in the ring.
After that, KSI’s energy level looked much higher than Logan’s — especially in the final round — as he threw a series of violent haymakers … many of which connected.
Earlier, Logan’s younger bro Jake defeated Deji in the 5th round by knockout after wearing him down with a flurry of punches in the previous 2 rounds. Deji’s corner threw in the towel as Jake continued his barrage in the fifth.
The 2 were aggressive from the opening bell, throwing jabs and hooks and landing head and body shots galore … and Jake’s bloody face in round 1 showed the damage.
He was able to recover, though … and seemed to have more stamina and composure as the fight went on.
As we reported … Logan and KSI came face-to-face Friday for weigh-ins one final time before they entered the ring to pummel each other … and brought the insults.
KSI decided to go after L.P.’s girlfriend, Chloe Bennet … by walking onto the stage wearing a mask of the “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” star’s face. Logan hit back with a jab at KSI’s apparent bad breath … by giving him some gum.
Both bros have been training like maniacs for months, with KSI crushing his boxing workouts and Logan brutalizing his sparring partner in a training sesh.
As for the Jake fight … he predicted a 1st-round KO of Deji when asked by legendary boxing announcer Michael Buffer at Friday’s weigh-in. Deji responded by calling Jake “delusional.”
Two days earlier … Jake slapped Deji in the face when KSI’s little bro crashed his gym where he was meeting up with fans for autographs and pics.
But none of that matters now … to the victor go the spoils.
