Let's just say he's not happy with the result
KSI claims that the majority draw decision against Logan Paul in the pairs highly anticipated bout was a “bullshit” decision in video address to his fans.
Following Saturday’s YouTube boxing match, KSI has released a short video to his YouTube channel addressing the result following a majority draw between the two YouTuber heavyweights. The boxing match, which went the distance, was scored as a majority draw, meaning the two judges scored both Logan and KSI equally, whilst one judge scored in favour of the British YouTuber. This meant that KSI got to keep his title and belt, but wasn't officially the 'winner' (neither of them were). In the video which KSI released following the fight he claims: “It came out as a draw, I thought that was bullshit.”

Though KSI was disappointed by the result he did admit to being shocked by Logan's abilities, stating: “his athletic background definitely showed”. However, his admiration for the American was cut short as KSI believed Logan was “using his wrestling background” to his advantage in order to slow down the fight. He said he felt Logan kept holding up the pace in the later rounds whilst he “was still ready to keep going”. KSI made a poor start losing the first two rounds, but eventually worked his way back into the bout, putting on a great spectacle for the millions of viewers, which ended in a brutal sixth round which saw KSI on top.
Logan Paul, on the other hand, claims to have won the fight himself. The controversial YouTuber took to Twitter to claim: “after sleeping on it & rewatching the fight… I should’ve won the fight”.

KSI finishes the video with a heartwarming message to his younger brother Deji, who lost his fight to Jake Paul. In the clip he urges him not to give up and get back to training in order to prove people wrong, telling Deji: “I’m so proud of you” following Deji’s visible heartbreak and claims that he had let everyone down.
