"Obviously, your man's got this belt right now and if any YouTuber wants it, you can come get it", KSI said following the fight and receiving a championship belt made for the fight.

The bout between KSI and Logan Paul has been dubbed the biggest event in Internet history, and is likely to be one of the UK's biggest white-collar boxing events.

After the six-round fight, both thought they had done enough to win before the judges' scorecards were revealed.

The big boxing match between YouTubers Logan Paul and KSI went down today with the fight unsurprisingly being declared a draw to make room for a rematch, but the real winners were the viewers who bypassed YouTube to watch it for free on Twitch.

KSI and Logan Paul took to the boxing ring as their bitter online feud turned physical. Nonetheless, the two stars from YouTube will gear up for another fight almost six months from now. By having the first fight end in a draw, it may build more anticipation for the rematch.

The Paul brothers are two YouTubers who are known for controversial videos and childish behavior.

Bookmakers have lodged over 250,000 bets over the fight alone.

It was previously agreed that KSI would take home the profits from sales in the UK - Paul will take the profits from their second match in the USA which is due to take place in early 2019 - and with around 773,000 people tuning in to YouTube to watch the fight for a fee of £7.50 that gives KSI a potential total £5,797,500 heading for his bank account.

Each fighter comes with their own share of controversies. He later apologised for the video.

Fans of KSI will no doubt disagree with Greg Logan's comments.

The event is set to kick off at 5.30pm, with the main fight at 9pm (midnight Qatar time).

Attendees were sent an e-mail by the ticket sellers Eventim, saying that anyone caught recording or filming during the event would be asked to delete all footage.

Videos from inside the arena are being strictly monitored.
