YouTube royalty KSI and Logan Paul will face off in their blockbuster rematch tonight.

The event is so big that Billy Joe Saunders will defend his super-middleweight world title on the undercard.

KSI vs Logan Paul: What happened last time?
The first clash between the two YouTube superstars ended in a majority draw, with one judge scoring it 57-58 in favour of KSI and the other two scoring it a 57-57 draw.
Logan Paul started strong and came out on top in the first two rounds.
But as the American began to tire, KSI landed heavier blows in the third round to bring himself back into the contest.
The result means that KSI keeps the crown of YouTube Boxing Champion after his victory against Joe Weller at London’s Copper Box Arena in February in the first clash between two YouTubers.
More than 800,000 streamed the fight through a YouTube pay-per-view service and it has been billed as the ‘biggest event in internet history’.

It will be streamed on subscription service DAZN in America.
