Even if you weren’t a fan of either Paul or KSI, or of the fact this was a professional boxing match aired on DAZN, it’s hard not to admit that it was a fight that a lot of people were watching, and one that ended up being a big success for DAZN.
Paul and KSI have now fought twice, with both fights ending in somewhat controversial fashion. The first fight between them in August 2018 ended in a majority draw, while the rematch was scored in favor of KSI by split decision. The two fighters were asked afterward what their thoughts on a potential rematch were. Paul said he’s open to it, while KSI says he’s moving on to bigger and better things.
For better or worse, Paul and KSI put on a show that got a lot of eyeballs from them, and there’s no doubt both men will step back into the boxing ring again at some point, though maybe not against one another.
