Logan Paul vs KSI tale of the tape: How fighters compare ahead of potential trilogy fight between YouTubers
YOUTUBE rivals KSI and Logan Paul sparked speculation they could be preparing to announce a trilogy bout.
The pair, who first drew in 2018 before KSI won the rematch a year later, both teased a 'Final Chapter' announcement to be made on January 4.
But, since their Los Angeles rematch, the two have formed a friendship, filming a podcast and comedy show together.
Despite the new found respect, a lucrative trilogy bout between the two cannot be ruled out.
And here SunSport runs down how the two compare in the boxing ring.
The British former gamer helped start the trend of social media stars lacing up the boxing gloves.
KSI – real name Olajide Olayinka Williams Olatunji – beat Joe Weller in round three of their white collar bout.
Soon after, he called out Paul and the American's brother Jake, setting up the grudge match.
But six rounds of exhibition action could not separate KSI, 28, and Paul, 26, paving the way for a rematch.
KSI prevailed following a quick start but had to overcome a knockdown and illegal blow on the floor.
It cost Paul a two point deduction and ultimately the fight, losing by split-decision.
KSI has continued to train and entered talks to fight younger brother Jake, but amid the coronavirus pandemic, his return has been shelved.

Following Paul's points loss to KSI, he only returned this June, but did so in an extraordinary exhibition bout with Floyd Mayweather.
The podcaster showed clear improvement – despite being in there with a boxing legend – and took Mayweather the distance.
It meant technically, as no knockout was scored, Paul avoided defeat.
He weighed a massive TWO STONE more than Mayweather, 44, but was vastly outmatched in terms of experience.
Paul has since been in rumoured talks to fight heavyweight icon Mike Tyson, 55, who in November 2020 made an exhibition return.
But more recently, Paul has been nursing a broken hand, which has prevented him from returning.
Instead, he has watched as brother Jake, 24, has improved to 5-0 as a boxer, knocking out ex-UFC champion Tyron Woodley, 39, this month.
