KSI vs Logan Paul is set to be one of the biggest internet events of this decade as the two Youtubers put on their gloves for a highly anticipated boxing match. Both fighters have huge followings and the venue is expected to be filled with fans. While neither is considered to be a professional boxer, both have been training and preparing hard for this event so we should be able to witness a high quality.
KSI fought Joe Weller earlier this in a fight which he won comfortably. KSI was dominant in that fight and it showed that he has the quality to be a top boxer. This will be a different occasion for KSI since there is lots of pressure on him to win. The fight is to take place at the Manchester Arena in the UK meaning that KSI will be the home crowd favorite. It will be interesting to see whether having the crowd behind KSI helps or hinders him.
On the other side of the ring, Logan Paul will look to silence the UK crowd by beating KSI. The American Youtuber was a wrestler at college and that shows that he has experience in combat sports. It is important to note that boxing and wrestling an entirely different but we can see that Logan Paul is built well from his days as a wrestler. It will be important for Logan Paul that he can silence the crowd since he will be hated by them and being against the crowd is never a positive. This will be a tough fight for Logan Paul since he has never been in a competitive boxing match before and it will be interesting to see how this lack of experience impacts the American.
All in all, I am sure we will be able to witness a great spectacle between two entertainers. That being said, I am going to predict that KSI wins this fight. KSI has more experience boxing and will have the crowd behind him. These two factors should be enough to decide the fight in favor of KSI.
