Drama Alert host and YouTube star Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem has admitted that he’s changed his mind about who won the fights at the KSI vs Logan Paul event.

In a recent episode of Drama Alert, Keem explains that he was sure that KSI should have been awarded the victory over his American adversary, Logan Paul, immediately after the epic showdown in the Manchester Arena.

KEEMSTAR also felt that Deji’s team made a huge mistake throwing in the towel during his battle with Jake Paul, feeling that the Brit was in control.

However, having re-watched the fights since returning home from England, Keem believes that his original judgement was wrong, and that both results were correct in the end.

Regarding the Deji vs Jake Paul fight, the 36-year-old says:

“I have to say, the towel needed to be thrown in. You can’t see everything when you’re front row, and congratulations Jake Paul, you did win.”

In terms of the KSI vs Logan Paul result, Keem admitted that his emotions may have altered his immediate reaction to the result, but now believes the draw was the right decision:

“It was a draw. It was a draw! It’s so different when you’re calm, at home. Both of these fighters looked really, really good. It was a draw.

While KEEMSTAR may agree that a draw was a fair result, both KSI and Logan Paul have made it clear that they believe they won the main event clash on Saturday, August 25.

While a rematch between the two has been agreed on, there is no official date set for the bout. It’s expected that they’ll square off again in early 2019.

After months of back-and-forth, Jake Paul and Nate Robinson finally stepped into the squared circle for their highly-anticipated boxing matchup, but Jake Paul dominated and wrapped it up early.

YouTubers strapping on boxing gloves and squaring up with one another was a trend kicked off by KSI and Joe Weller back in 2018. Since then, the concept has exploded – including KSI forging rivalries with the Paul brothers and fighting Logan Paul in a professional bout in Los Angeles. 

Typically, it has been all about a YouTuber fighting another content creator, but Jake Paul’s next fight was a little different. He fought former NBA star Nate Robinson on the undercard of the Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. exhibition bout, and it was a dominant performance.

Paul and Robinson have been going back-and-forth for months, with their fight being delayed previously.

Jake Paul dominates Nate Robinson, Round 2 KO

Nate Robinson looked anxious right out of the gate, but it didn’t stop him from having an energetic start. He came in with his fists flying and tried to assert his dominance early on, although he looked a little clumsy at times.

Still, it wasn’t long before Jake Paul’s superior experience and skillset started to show. He dished out a series of calculated strikes and hugs to stop Nate in his tracks. It totally slowed down the momentum and even reversed it.

From that point onwards, Jake Paul was never in doubt. He downed Nate Robinson towards the end of the first round, but the former NBA star managed to get back on his feet and stay in the fight.

However, it didn’t last much longer. Jake Paul continued to dominate in the second round and sent Nate crashing down once again. He managed to get up one last time, but Jake Paul absolutely flattened him with an impressively powerful punch to knock him out and seal the deal.

Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr. fight card

As for who else was in action on the card, it wasn’t full of YouTubers or other side shows like some of Paul’s other fights, but instead, actual professional bouts. Former undefeated light-heavyweight star Badou Jack was in action, moving to Cruiserweight, while the highly anticipated matchup between Tyson and Jones Jr was an electrifying affair.

  • Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr
  • Jake Paul vs Nate Robinson
  • Badou Jack vs Blake McKernan
  • Hasim Rahman Jr vs Rashad Coulter
  • Jamaine Ortiz vs Nahir Albright
  • Irvin Gonzalez vs Edward Vasquez
  • Juiseppe Cusumano vs Nick Jones

All in all, it was an impressive performance by Jake Paul. Of course, he was widely expected to win since he’s been in the game for longer than Nate Robinson.

Still, he moved and punched like a true professional, and has already set his sights on what’s next.
