The highly anticipated boxing showdown between the two massive YouTube stars has ended in a surprise draw, though it seems likely a KSI vs Logan Paul Rematch will occur in the future.

The wait is finally over, after months of posturing, name calling, and failed press events, the showdown between YouTubers Logan Paul and KSI has finally occurred in the ring. The undercard for the event has already seen a few surprise results, with Logan Paul’s younger brother, Jake Paul, managing to find victory against the younger brother of KSI, Deji Olatunji, better known as ComedyShortsGamer, before making a surprising call out to rapper Chris Brown. Here’s a brief breakdown of the match.

Logan Paul entered the ring first, and though he seemed ready to go, KSI delayed his entrance for a few minutes, forcing Logan to listen to the crowd for a little while. When both fighters finally entered the ring, the fight was on. The first round saw a lot of playful banter between the fighters, with not a lot of actual heavy hits landing. The second round was a lot more serious, with Logan Paul seeming to have the upper hand due to his reach advantage. KSI seemed to settle into his groove in the third round, landing consistent hits to prove his worth and tire his opponent.

The fourth round saw the smiles disappear for both fighters, with the blows coming fast and hard, though fatigue was definitely setting in. The ref called a timeout in the fifth round to speak with KSI for some time, before both fighters relaunch their attacks. The sixth and final round saw both fighters tired on their feet. Logan Paul was bleeding from an excellent shot by KSI, but not enough to warrant stoppage, and both fighters look like they might not have much left in them. As the final round ended, both fighters seem willing to celebrate their victory, though the actual result was something of a surprise.

A majority draw was called, with neither fighter conclusively winning the match. Both fighters took the time to thank their fans and supporters, before agreeing that a draw was not the result either was looking for. It seems at some point in the future, we’re going to get a rematch.
