You’re going to have to cough up to watch KSI vs Logan Paul Part 2, aka the boxing match you probably never had any intention of paying to watch.

According to The Verge, it appears that the vast majority of people who actually watched their first fight tuned in illegally, opting to take advantage of pirate streams on platforms like Twitch and Periscope, instead of paying to watch the action via the official channels − YouTube and the website.

While the official stream reportedly brought in around 773,000 viewers, more than a million people are said to have tuned in via Twitch alone.

And it appears that KSI − aka Olajide Olatunji − and Logan Paul are putting their heads together to think up a way to combat the problem. In a video posted to YouTube this week, KSI said they’re “working on protection and the legal side of things when it comes to streaming”.

He also revealed that the rematch, which was originally supposed to take place in February, will almost certainly be pushed back. Logan Paul is, according to KSI, yet to select a location or venue for the upcoming fight.
