KSI-Logan Paul Rematch Sold More PPV Buys Than Joshua-Ruiz



On Saturday night KSI and Paul met for the second time in the ring, at Staples Centre in Los Angeles, in a fight that many 'traditional' boxing fans weren't on board with.


Brit KSI won the fight, thanks to a controversial two point deduction for his rival, but the real winners on the night were DAZN, Sky Sports and Eddie Hearn.


Speaking to Sirius XM's Fight Nation, Hearn revealed the fight did the most PPV buys of any in the UK this year and did DAZN's biggest viewing figures, saying, "The first fight did 1.2m pay-per-view buys globally. This was much, much bigger this time around,


"It's the biggest pay-per-view in the UK of the year so far. That includes the first Joshua-Ruiz Jr fight from America. This fight was cheaper, was half the price of that.


"I believe DAZN will announce some numbers this week but I understand it was the most-viewed fight on DAZN so far."

"You don't realize the audience these guys have. They brought our sport to reach new ground and reach new territories, new demographics and new markets."
