This is the only fight Betfair have up for Saturday.

I have barely heard of these clowns but apparently they have sold out The Manchester Arena with thousands having travelled from America and expect to do 500k PPV buys !

Lumping on Logan Paul @1.8+ as he has some legit fighting credentials from wrestling and seems bigger while KSI  hits like a girl according to the guy he fought before.

Hmm I didn’t think KSI would be odds against here.

Thought this be light work for KSI as he’s been training at boxing longer, already had a fight where he dominated his opponent and to my eye looks a lot more skilled now.

Also I have to disagree with people  saying it’s bad for boxing and disrespectful to real professionals.

When KSI fought Joe Weller they sold out the Copper Box with the vast majority in the crowd being under 18s and it will be the same again tonight.

It’s exposure to a younger audience that other sports could only dream of having imo

KSI seemed much bigger than Weller though.

Won't be wasting my breath watching it

I can see a point in the future where this type of cr*p will be replacing the actual professional sports Cry, younger people do seem more interested in planks like these pair

I had a big bet on Logan at the bookies when it first opened at 2.5. I still think 1.8 is very generous. He's a natural born athlete and KSI is delusional about his own boxing abilities. Logan has a clear height and reach advantage too and KSI doesn't throw hard. I'd be shocked if KSI won. Only concern I have is if it goes the distance as there aren't many rounds and they give a home decision to build it for a return match.

Selling out manchester arena with people having to be rejected (a lot as well apparently) and all of them being the next generation tells you they are no longer interested in actual pro sport, but rather this type of stuff

I honestly think they could have done 60-70,000 at Wembley easily judging on the forums numbers and youtube hits. its bonkers.

Not surprised to see Shannon Briggs involved but would have thought Johnny Nelson would have better things to do

They'd have sold out Wembley easily. And over a million paying PPV too. Very nice payday for them.

How apt that Michael Buffer was there for the YouTube fight.

One of the most bizarre moves ever not to cover the draw there. With 6 rounds especially. I actually said I fancied it as value but talked myself out of it as assumed they'd actually rather a result to spur on a replay as feel a victory either way would have increased the appetite for a rematch, the draw might detract more people. Shame the exchanges weren't up early for this as my main play would have been laying KSI odds on.
