This figure excludes the number of tickets that were gifted to other YouTubers, social influencers, family and friends.

While some fans believed that KSI was the rightful winner, the fight was called a draw by the judges. Both KSI and Paul have vowed to do a rematch in the near future.
[SWIPE] Conclusions: - i should’ve won that fight - when i punch it looks like im pooping - KSI fights like a dog in a corner & i respect that - jealous of KSI’s sparkly skirt - some people are saying the fight was rigged, literally suck my ass - my @MaverickByLoganPaul gear is sexy AF (merch link in bio) - i will not leave it up to the judges in the USA rematch
