KSI vs Logan Paul rematch could get 2019’s biggest boxing audience, says Eddie Hearn

The rematch using YouTube rival Logan Paul of KSI could entice the year’s largest boxing crowd following 10 million watched the first press conference, states promoter Eddie Hearn.
The YouTube personalities that were popular renewed their competition in Los Angeles at the weekend.
Paul and KSI have registered as fighters following their amateur bout ended in a majority draw August in Manchester and also Matchroom Boxing boss Hearn is currently anticipating public demand to see their fight.
“Seven hundred million people saw the press conference live, just to their YouTube flows,” Hearn told Sky Sports.
“I think it’s around 10million people have watched the press conference now. This battle is most likely going to be the struggle of the year.
“It is crazy, but they are at least respecting the code. They have turned pro, no head guards, 10 oz gloves. I really don’t believe they know what they’ve let themselves in for on this one.”
Having exploited the ability of KSI and Paul on interpersonal networking, Hearn is currently creating a fight bill to add rising US contender Devin Haney and Britain’s world champion Billy Joe Saunders at an attempt to pull a fan base.
“They’ve trained hard, they are in great shape, they could struggle, but now the responsibility on us is to be sure that we showcase good boxing to this new audience,” said Hearn.
“That’s why Devin Haney, Billy Joe Saunders are most probably going to be about the undercard too, since it’s 1 thing bringing countless new fans to the sport, can we keep them? That is the challenge that is newest.
“Even if we could keep one per cent, it’s good for boxing.
“Madness, complete insanity. I really don’t understand what’s going to take place. Staples Center will be mad and hopefully we could grow the game and keep these fans in the game, and reveal some greatness while we are there together with Devin and Billy.”
