The YouTube generation is getting into boxing. YouTube stars Logan Paul and KSI are set to square off on November 9th in Los Angeles at Staples Center for a rematch of their 2018 contest. Their first fight resulted in a rare majority draw. Two judges scored it 57-57 and a third judge scored it 58-57 in favor of KSI.
DraftKings Sportsbook is offering a variety of odds for the fight. In spite of KSI getting one judge’s favor in the majority draw, he is the underdog at +150 to Paul’s -200. I suppose the quasi-hometown event offers some benefit to Paul. If you want to bet on another draw, you can get +1000 odds.
The fight is scheduled for six rounds, and Paul winning by KO, TKO, or disqualification is the favored result at +105. KSI winning as such is +333, while either fighter winning by points is +450. If you think the fight will go the distance, the odds are +140. If you think the fight will end in the first minute, you can get +1600 odds.
Promoter Eddie Hearn is expecting a big crowd for the event, anticipating as many as 15,000 fans in attendance. There were reportedly 20,000 in attendance at the first fight at Manchester Arena, and was reportedly purchased by 1.5 million viewers. If you want to watch the rematch, it is on DAZN in North America and on Sky Sports in the United Kingdom.
