One of the biggest fights of the year will take place in Los Angeles this weekend, yet it does not involve a professional boxer – instead, it is the second clash between internet sensations KSI and Logan Paul.
The two YouTubers originally met in an amateur fight back in August, but they sold out the arena in Manchester and brought in £14million via pay-per-view on YouTube.
Now the fight is being promoted by leading boxing promoter Eddie Hearn, and the two are now fighting under professional rules and will be broadcast worldwide via the mainstream box office channels.
Indeed, the fight tops the bill on what is a high-class pro card featuring the likes of Billy Joe Saunders and Devin Haney.
The original contest ended in a draw, which is 10/1 to happen again with Logan Paul odds-on favourite to take the win ahead of KSI.
OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton commented: “These two have gone from an amateur bout to joining the pro-ranks, but that is because they pull in the public, and that is not surprising with over 40million YouTube subscribers between them.
“Bookmakers have joined the party and are reporting good numbers coming in on the fight, with Logan the favourite to take the win.”
