0

KSI and Logan Paul battle it out in their rematch tonight but what is the fight purse and how much will the YouTubers earn?

KSI and Logan Paul’s first fight in August 2018 ended as a majority draw, setting the stage for a big-money rematch.

Their YouTube showdown saw 20,000 spectators flock to the Manchester Arena, with approximately one million fans purchasing the pay-per-view event online.

Business Insider claim the fight generated £8.61m ($11m) in total.

However, it is not known exactly how that pot was divided up.

The stage is now set for KSI and Paul’s rematch at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

“With this fight, I want to use it to push my music career and YouTube career,” said KSI.

“It just allows me to push to a new level. That’s why I spent hundreds of thousands to make sure I’m in the best position to beat Logan Paul.”

Paul said: “Imagine two villains with the biggest egos in the world going head to head where their first match was a tie.

“This is the Tyson Fury-Deontay Wilder II, this is that fight. We are going to go f*****g ham and cheese and I’m going to hurt this man badly. It’s going to be f*****g biblical.”

KSI and Paul are both guaranteed £704,500 ($900,000) each from their rematch.

However, those fees do not include PPV purchases, ticket sales or sponsorship deals, so they stand to earn even greater amounts from their second showdown.

The undercard also features recognised boxing stars Billy Joe Saunders and Devin Haney, who both compete in title bouts.

The guaranteed purses for each boxer are listed below, according to ESPN.
