This may be the most 2018 sporting event ever – a boxing bout between two YouTube ‘celebrities’ who both have very little experience inside the ring.
Amazingly, this fight between KSI and the controversial Logan Paul has managed to generate interest right around the world and has turned into a very interesting betting affair.
We have analysed both ‘fighters’ and our complete KSI vs Logan Paul preview can be found below.
KSI vs Logan Paul Betting
KSI was a clear favourite to win this fight earlier in the week, but there has been plenty of money for Logan Paul in the past 24 hours and he is now into $1.70.
KSI is out to $2.15, while the market suggests that this fight will end in a knockout – we have $2.50 available for the fight to go the distance.
The draw is $15 and could actually be a bit of value as you can’t completely rule out some potential judging shenanigans – we are talking about a fight between two YouTube celebrities after all.
KSI vs Logan Paul Recent Form
KSI does have an experience edge over Paul, which obviously isn’t difficult as Paul will be making his in-ring debut.
KSI defeat fellow YouTube personality Joe Weller by TKO in London earlier this year and he actually didn’t look that bad in the ring.
Logan Paul may be making his boxing debut, but the bloke is clearly in excellent shape and he was a State-Level wrestler in high-school.
That sort of experience should not be discounted and you would expect that he would have a cardio edge over KSI.
KSI vs Logan Paul Tips
This is obviously an incredible difficult event to analysed, as they aren’t real fighters, but I’m still confident that we can find a winner.
KSI is definitely the smaller of the two men and he has predicted that he will have a clear speed edge, which is likely true, but a lack of power could be an issue.
Paul will almost certainly throw heavy hands and I am confident that he will have a cardio edge, which will prove vital in the concluding stages of the six-round bout.
I expect KSI to come out as the aggressor and should be able to take the first couple of rounds, but the cardio and pure size advantage that Paul has should him finish over the top of his rival and I expect him to finish KSI in the final couple of rounds.
