KSI has won the battle of the YouTube stars, claiming a six round split decision over Logan Paul. Paul used his jab well as he landed 40 of 153 and KSI landed 36 of 178 in power punches.

YouTube sensations KSI and Logan Paul come face-to-face once more but this time in a pro-boxing fight in Los Angeles.

But there was an outright victor this time around with KSI - real name Olajide William Olatunji - getting the nod 56-55 (Paul), 57-54 (KSI), 56-55 (KSI) at the Staples Center in LA. They fought to a draw in an amateur fight, which took place previous year at the Manchester Arena in Manchester.

KSI, from the United Kingdom, had prepared for the cruiserweight bout by training with Viddal Riley and the uncle of Floyd Mayweather, veteran coach Jeff Mayweather. KSI was throwing a lot of big shots, most were not landing or connecting clean.

The American then hit the deck, but not ruled a knockdown by referee Reiss, who repeatedly told Paul to get up while KSi waited for another moment to attack. KSI was very busy in the round.

The fourth round was marred with controversy as KSI went down after a lovely uppercut from Paul.

Paul was doing better in the fifth, as KSI was now exhausted and Paul was applying pressure.

KSI's bandy legs retuned in the fifth, where the away fighter began to establish his jab a little more than he did earlier in the bout. He was coming forward and taking the fight to Paul.
