The boxing match between YouTube stars KSI and Logan Paul was one of the internet’s most watched live events.

Gaining over 800,000 views during the match and over 5.4 million views as of August 26 (on YouTube alone), the fight saw a ton of eyeballs from an array of audiences.

While KSI is also a YouTuber, who has had previous fighting experience and plans to go professional. Logan Paul is just a social media mogul with a penchant for athleticism. After six months of training, however, Logan was able to hold his own in the ring.

Both YouTube devotees and boxing fans alike tuned into the match – and boxing enthusiasts had a few harsh words to say about the unfolding events.

A collection of Tweets was compiled in a Twitter moment regarding the fight, where fans of the sport expressed their ultimate displeasure with how things unfolded. 

Former professional boxer Paul Smith Jr. whom KSI in fact follows, posted on Twitter to explain why he thinks the fight was not boxing at all.

“It wasn’t a fight. Neither was the first. So he’s yet to do a ‘fight’. I get it, you all love these lads fair play to them they’re experiencing the good parts of our sport.”


Twitter user Matt Bradley believed the event made light of boxing in general.

“Shouldn’t be happening. Making a mockery of the ultimate sport. Imo a terrible example to young amateur boxers working their way up with the help of brilliant, dedicated grass roots trainers. All wrong”

Another user commented on the difference in weight and size of the fighters, referencing their occupation as professional boxer, Chris Eubank Jr., as opposed to a YouTuber, KSI.

“I think this picture is so telling of a professional boxer in peak condition and a YouTube boxer. JJ is fighting at light heavyweight and CEJ is a middleweight yet there dimensions are the same

The British Board likewise clarified that they are not participating in the event, as neither competitor is licensed with the BBBBofC. The organization also stated that it does not “participate in such events,” likely sticking to legitimate competition as opposed to celebrity grudge matches.

However, not every reaction was negative: Several boxing fans admitted their admiration of the two fighters. Even professional boxer Anthony Crolla expressed his approval.

“Seeing a lot of people’s opinions on the KSI v Logan match later. No matter what you’ve gotta give them boys credit. What they’ve created is unreal and to sell the Manchester Arena out and the the buys there gonna get on YouTube is unreal. Absolute businessmen!!!”

The KSI vs Logan Paul match can be re-streamed on the KSIvsLogan YouTube channel for £7.50 ($10.00 USD).


Footage emerges of Bryce Hall in restaurant brawl over a vape

Footage has emerged online of TikTok star Bryce Hall involved in yet another restaurant brawl, just weeks after going viral for a street fight in West Hollywood.

On October 4, Bryce released footage of him in a street fight, and his fans and critics alike came together to call out his actions and explain why it wasn’t acceptable.

Now, barely two weeks later, Bryce finds himself in yet another brawl, but this time the video was leaked before he could share it himself, which he said he did in the first fight because he didn’t want media outlets “misrepresenting” it if they report it first.

Late on October 20, footage came out of Bryce involved in an altercation at a Mexican restaurant in Los Angeles — and the alleged reason behind it is very bizarre.

Bryce has found himself in a spot of bother once again.

As TMZ reports, you can see Bryce involved in the scrap, right in the thick of things, and according to them, it all kicked off because of a vape.

It’s illegal to vape at restaurants in LA, something Bryce and co. apparently didn’t care to hear when asked to stop, with Bryce allegedly blowing smoke in staff’s face when asked to stop. Then, according to TMZ, things came to a head when Bryce’s card was taken to make his payment after being asked to leave.

One source apparently said that Bryce and his friends jumped an employee, with the star himself throwing the first punch, while Bryce refutes those claims and says that a manager grabbed him and tried to drag him away, before kicking him.

In the original report, it’s also stated that one of the staff members involved suffered a broken hand, and named Bryce as his attacker in a police report that followed the ordeal.

Obviously, there are two sides to this story, but Bryce’s track record and reputation is working against him — and if the restaurant staff decide to press charges, we’re likely to find out the truth one way or another.
