After the much anticipated YouTube boxing match between KSI and Logan Paul ended in a somewhat anti-climatic draw, KSI says the “judges got it wrong, straigh up, absolute BS.”

The fight took place on August 25 at the Manchester Arena in the UK, with a strong home crowd supporting KSI, as well as millions tuning in live online.

After six rounds of fighting, two of the three judges scored both fighters at 58-58, while another gave KSI the edge at 59-57, meaning the decision was a majority draw.

Unsurprisingly, both Logan Paul and KSI have since laid claim to the victory, and members of the YouTube community have also given their verdict.

After posting on social media to say it was clear he won the fight, KSI has now released a full 30 minute video explaining round by round why he thinks the judges got it wrong.

“I’m here to explain, why I won the fight. Judges got it wrong. Straight up. Absolute BS. I’ve watched the fight again and again and again, and I just can’t see how I didn’t win.

One of the judges got it right, and then two draws? Please, miss me with that bullshit. Round 1 and 2, fine, Logan beat me. 3, 4, 5 and 6 – come on? So we’re going to go through the fight bit by bit, and I’m going to explain to you, why I feel I won the fight.”

KSI also shows off statistics for the match, which would support his claim of deserving the win. According to the stats, Logan may have thrown more punches, but threw with much less accuracy and efficiency, landing only 136 to KSI’s 157.

It would also explain why Logan seemed to tire quickly after the opening rounds, as he began to throw less and be less accurate as the fight went on.

A rematch has been agreed between the pair though, and KSI thinks he will have an even bigger advantage going into the second bout, scheduled for early 2019.

Before the first fight, only Logan had access to KSI’s previous fight footage, with Joe Weller, whereas KSI had nothing to go on.

Now with the experience behind him, KSI will feel his superior fitness and boxing skill will shine through – but Logan too will have more time to prepare.

Noah Beck & Griffin Johnson under fire for “cancel culture” comments

TikTok stars Noah Beck and Griffin Johnson are taking heat from critics due to their divisive comments on “cancel culture,” as told during an episode of Johnson’s “Sway Way” podcast.

Also known as “call-out culture,” the term “cancel culture” has become a popular phrase in the past few years as social media has flourished, allowing users to highlight abuse, bad behavior, or other negative actions from people online.

When these bad behaviors are brought to light, the person responsible is usually called out, boycotted and ostracized, causing them to be publicly shamed and often ousted from their professional and social circles due to the resulting backlash.

“Cancel culture” itself is a divisive term, with many believing that it outright doesn’t exist, as those being “canceled” deserve to be called out for their actions and that those who are “canceled” are never truly brought to justice from the outrage.

Still, others feel that “cancel culture” is going too far and is resulting in a toxic online environment — but either way, people are no longer willing to abide bad behavior from anyone, and social media has given users a platform to speak up against things they consider to be unjust.

TikTokers and Sway House members Griffin Johnson and Noah Beck recently spoke out on the social phenomenon during an episode of the Sway Way podcast — and their thoughts on the subject have sparked quite a bit of backlash against them.

“People are getting canceled for things that were totally acceptable,” Beck said. “I don’t want to say that people have gotten really sensitive, but at the same time, they have, and it’s like… there were some things that were acceptable back then that people could say, now it comes back on them five, 10 years later.”

“I mean, I’ve done some things in my past where they come off as controversial today, but they weren’t that deep,” Beck continued, referencing his own controversial history on social media. “I can see why people think it’s a big deal now, but it’s like… I never thought I would have this platform. I never thought I would have this stage. I was growing up just playing soccer. I liked a few tweets, but I didn’t think anything of it at the time.”

Needless to say, both Beck and Johnson have received a substantial amount of criticism from listeners, with one user writing: “He really said that he never thought he would have gotten famous… so if you’re not famous, you can be homophobic and it’s not a big deal?”

Both boys have yet to speak out on the outrage, which only continues to grow in wake of their already storied history of sparking division among TikTok viewers.
