KSI vs Logan Paul 2 is happening November 10th at staples centre at 5 am (bst.) Micheal Bisping, a successful UFC fighter has called this a mockery of the sport of boxing. Furthermore, a lot of mainstream media have referred to youtube boxing in a disrespectful manner. They feel threatened. The last fight which ended in a draw had 21,000 tickets sold and 1 million pay per view buys and many many more watching it illegally on twitch. The fight will be available to watch on sky sports boxing box office. One of the undercards is Billy Joe Saunders vs Marcelo Esteban for a world title. Isn’t it crazy how youtube is so big now that a world title can be on the undercard, not the main event? I think this is a good thing for boxing as a whole though. They are introducing a whole new audience to there sport of boxing. You have fighters/ YouTubers like Vidal Riley he could be world champion one day. He is training with the Mayweather team. Wouldn’t it be crazy in 7 years having a boxing world champion have his own YouTube channel?
Like it or not youtube is the way forward and mainstream media are afraid of this.
