This fight serves as a rematch for the first event back in August of 2018, when KSI and Logan Paul squared off in an amateur boxing match in front of a sold-out crowd in Manchester, England. Following the majority draw, both parties agreed to meet again as licensed professional boxers, which leads us to the big night on November 9 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
The event will be streamed live exclusively as part of the action-packed Fight Season on DAZN.
