YouTube stars KSI and Logan Paul are set to throw down in their highly-anticipated boxing rematch on November 9, but news of ticketing information to catch the event in-person has been relatively silent - until now.
Although live streaming info, a venue, and a date for the bout were leaked in early August, fans weren’t able to purchase tickets until recently, thanks to a well-timed Tweet from Logan Paul.
When and where can you buy tickets?
Paul tweeted out information for the rematch on September 10, revealing that tickets for the bout are now available for pre-sale via AXS.

While these tickets are only up for grabs via pre-order, official ticket sales launch on September 14 at 1:00 PM PST - giving fans four days before the presale ends.
That isn’t the only reason September 14 is a notable date, either: a press conference for the rematch has likewise been slated for that same day, according to KSI’s video on the subject from September 3.
“I think it’s going to be more of a battle of words,” KSI said of the upcoming conference. “I’m not gonna go with the whole try and make fun of him, because I’ve already done that.”
Where can you watch KSI vs Logan Paul 2?
YouTube’s most buzzed-about rematch will throw down at the Los Angeles Staples Center on November 9, with streaming courtesy of sports broadcasting platform DAZN - but this bout will be different from its predecessor in a big way, aside from moving the broadcast off of YouTube.
Rather than featuring other top influencers on its undercard, KSI vs Logan Paul 2 is going all pro, with professional boxer Billy Joe Saunders set to defend his world super middleweight title at the event.
YouTubers going pro
Both KSI and Logan Paul are forgoing headgear, as well, making their bout a serious affair - a development that boxing promoter Eddie Hearn argues will help new viewers see “the greatness of our sport.”
That’s not all: Team 10 co-founder Jake Paul has reportedly secured a pro license to compete on the undercard, as well, hinting that a legit pro boxing match against MMA fighter Dillon Danis might not be completely out of the question, thanks to their long-running beef.
With just two months left until the rematch throws down, fans and critics alike are guessing at who will come out on top: and with their fight going pro, there’s no telling how the Paul brothers’ desire for professional fighting careers will pan out.
