However just like the first match, the results were shocking when Logan lost after being deducted two-points in a nail-biter finish. Now, his younger brother has come to his defense.
Jake Paul says the results were “rigged”
After the event wrapped up and KSI was declared the winner by a split decision, Jake Paul spoke to the press. “I think the committee should contest it,” he argued. “And if they don’t flip that decision, then it’s bullsh*t!”
The YouTuber went a step further, and shockingly claimed the whole sport of boxing is fake. “I’ve been in this sport for a year now. I shouldn’t be saying this. But all this f*cking sh*t is rigged!”
The younger Paul brother then explained why he felt these events are not fair. “You see people wining and dining each other. You see people at Staples Center. Who was at the Staples Center last night with KSI?” he asked.
While it’s not entirely clear who he’s talking about due to noise in the background, the YouTuber seemed to be suggesting that KSI spent time with someone involved in the event.

While his younger brother doesn’t seem too happy with the results, Logan Paul has so far been gracious about his loss, and has not made any claims of the results being unfair. When the match ended, KSI and the YouTuber shook hands, and exchanged compliments, burying their feud.
Logan even posted on his Twitter on November 10 to praise KSI, and congratulated him on his victory. “Two random kids who made stupid videos turned into professional boxers, sold out the Staples Center. Congrats to the champ, KSI. I can’t wait to see what you do next!” he said.

While it remains to be seen if the YouTube star will change his mind on the results after having time to analyze the fight, for the time being he seems to be keeping his head high.
Love them or hate them, there is no denying that KSI and Logan Paul got millions of people to tune in, and most of the reactions of the fight have been positive. So both came out as winners in the end.
