Boxing heads back to the underground on Saturday night in Los Angeles when a pair of YouTube stars will shed the amateur headgear and throw punches like professionals at the Staples Center (DAZN, 9 p.m. ET).
Logan Paul and Olajide “KSI” Olatunji will go toe-to-toe in a rematch of their amateur bout from 2018 in London that drew a crowd of 21,000 to Manchester Arena and nearly 800,000 PPV buys. It is the definition of “big money boxing.”
It has also even garnered attention from some of the bigger names in boxing with all-sport streaming service DAZN, which will carry the event, adding a pair of champions to the undercard.
