KSI dictated the first three rounds and had a strong start to the fight. He even dropped Paul in the third round, but despite the replays showing it to the the result of a clean punch, the referee deemed it as a push instead of a knockdown. In round four Paul came back strong, dropping his opponent – But then logic went out the window. While this could have been telling of Paul taking over the fight, he chose to punch an already dropped KSI, a clear foul in boxing.

Paul was hit with a two point deduction, which ended up deciding the fight as it ended in a split decision win for KSI, who’s real name is Olajide Olatunji. The two rivals had a respectful ending to the fight, with KSI not interested in a trilogy, unlike Paul.
