In Manchester, England on August 25, 2018, YouTubers Jake and Logan Paul and Deji and KSI Olatunji held a boxing match. The  Olatunji brothers called the Paul brothers out following KSI’s boxing victory over another YouTuber, Joe Weller. The Paul brothers accepted the fight offer and the fight date was set for August 25. The two sets of brothers had two press conferences before the actual fight date.

    Jake beat Deji(CSG) in the 5th round, he won with a TKO. Deji started off strong in the first few rounds and it looked like he was going to win, but Jake Paul used his reach to his advantage and jabbed Deji. Deji, being worn out, in the 4th round threw in the towel in the 5th allowing Jake to win with a TKO.

    KSI and Logan went all six rounds and eventually the match ended with a draw. The two older brothers going all six rounds. Logan began to look tired but kept going while KSI came on strong in the last few rounds as he did with Weller. There was tension in the air as the judges tallied up the score to see who would win. Out of three judges only one scored the fight 57-58 while the two others said 57-57. The score goes by majority rules, so with the score 57-57 being the most agreed upon the match ended in a draw. The announcer said whoever was the champion of the previous fight would receive the belt, so KSI received the belt. Following the fight, both Logan and KSI decided to have a rematch in February somewhere in the US. While the two oldest are rematching, Deji and Jake had something different in mind. While Deji did say he wanted a rematch he also called out Alex Wassabi and Joe Weller, while Jake Paul called out Chris Brown.
