    More people are about to watch Haney and BJS then ever before.

    I'm sure they aren't complaining about all the free exposure.

    GGG, Jacobs, Canelo, Kovalev, etc.
    They have a lot of names. For $99 annually, it's a deal for as long as they're around.
    Lots of MMA as well. Bellator, etc.

    I don't see how KSI wins this

    Logan is so much more athletic, bigger, and powerful

    Technique is a lot better too

    This was the level of striking at one of the UFC's main event's.

    haha that’s not fair dude. Maia striking is abysmal. And let’s not even mention askren! Comedy fckin gold. He has the worst boxing/kickboxing in MMA. I’ve seen guys with months of training that are far more technical

    hahaha I laughed my arse off the whole fight. Askren striking never gets old. The attempted spinning heel kick was the best

    I agree. Logan is a much better fighter and has a size advantage. KSI looks like a subpar athlete and fighter.

    I love the hype for this fight. It just sucks that the bell has to ring and we see their skill level isn't good at all considering they are following Devin Haney. It's going to look like a WNBA game following the NBA.

    This is larger point I'm trying to make about what interests me in this fight.
    In KSI you have a guy with NO athletic background at all that's dedicated himself to boxing for a few years. From a curiosity pov it's worth looking at.

    How does a nerdy social media gamer have better striking than an MMA fighter that's been training ad competing for around a decade?

    On paper Logan should wipe him out. But I've seen so many fights that are more athletic and technically better, but in the fight just can't put it together.

    The less technical fighter can be harder to train for too, and if Logan's cardio fails again there no technique in the world that will save him.

    Logan's been training nonstop since the first fight ended, he was obviously the better boxer in the first fight as well. He's the stronger puncher and bigger man so the smaller gloves and no headgear will only help him. I don't see how he loses this one and he's only a +200 favorite... some value there.

    askren clearly doesn’t train any sort of boxing/kickboxing.

    I’d expect both of these guys to have decent boxing now. They’ve been training long enough, can easily find the time to do it and have had some great trainers working with them. 10oz gloves and no gear gear will make it far less messy. I just can’t get interested in it dude

    just because he’s been training doesn’t mean he’s made bigger improvements than the other fella. Size is the biggest factor imo. And 1 hard shot from either guy, on the chin with 10s, is possibly gonna win the fight. Neither of these guys will be skilled enough for someone to be a huge favourite

    Isn’t askren paranoid about CTE?

    Even in fights where he wins with wrestling he still takes head shots.

    To answer your question in the straightest terms, I’d say the answer is because KSI has dedicated significantly more time to boxing training in that couple of years than Askren has in those 10.

    I had zero interest in this before this thread but I find myself rooting hard for this KSI Guy.

    Paul is an asswipe who wants to do a flat earth documentary and did that scumbag suicide Forrest video.

    That said as Paul is apparently the favourite I’ll probably blank it.

    I dont like both guys for different reasons KSI use to be a good guy before hes ego

    Logan 100% the better fighter/Boxer but KSI has power and the stamina to go late. If logan don't finish him early he will gas out

    Even the Mayweather camp is saying KSi cant fight ffs!

    they’re both asswipes. I’m wouldn’t pick whom to hate more based on the one you’ve been exposed to more.

    KSI is getting knocked out (probably).
    They're both very unlikeable. Double KO rocky style please.
