KSI and Logan Paul made weight for tomorrow’s fight.
KSI and Logan Paul are good to go for tomorrow night’s six-round cruiserweight main event on DAZN, as both YouTube personalities made weight today in Los Angeles.
It’ll be the pro boxing debut for both men, though they did face one another in a six-round draw in amateur boxing in Aug. 2018.
Paul, 24, weighed in at 199¼ for this fight, with the 26-year-old KSI scaling at a lighter 193¼.
There are also two world title fights on the show. Billy Joe Saunders (28-0, 13 KO) will defend his WBO super middleweight belt against Marcelo Esteban Coceres (28-0-1, 15 KO). Saunders weighed in at 167¼, with Coceres at the 168-pound limit.
Devin Haney (23-0, 15 KO) is defending the WBC lightweight title, as well, taking on Alfredo Santiago (12-0, 4 KO). Both Haney and Santiago weighed in at the limit of 135 pounds.
The other somewhat notable fight on the card will see Ronny Rios (31-3, 15 KO) take on Hugo Berrio (28-7-1, 18 KO) in a 12-round super bantamweight fight. Rios weighed in at 120½, with Berrio at 121½. Rios is coming off of a July upset over Diego De La Hoya, which put the former world title challenger back in the race at 122 pounds.
