British YouTuber KSI has won his highly anticipated boxing rematch against US social media star Logan Paul.

Both fighters were knocked to the ground at different points in the contest that lasted six rounds in Los Angeles.

Two judges scored the fight 57-54 and 56-55 in favour of KSI, with one judging scoring it 56-55 in favour of Paul.

The British internet star, whose real name is Olajide William JJ Olatunj, said after his victory: KSI was scared to fight last time, scared to touch him, this time I went in there.

Your boy has done it, I am victorious.

I’m a dog, I keep saying it. I’m a fighter and I keep going!

KSI has just over 20 million subscribers on his YouTube channel, while Paul has about 19.9 million subscribers on the site.

The two men fought a rematch after their major amateur bout at the Manchester Arena ended in a draw last year.

The pair traded insults before their bout at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles on Saturday.

KSI had to clarify remarks he made after telling his rival you’re going to f****** die at a news conference.

He tweeted afterwards: Just want to clarify a statement I made yesterday at the press conference.

I don’t intend to kill Logan physically tomorrow, I only intend to kill his YouTube career and spirit.

After this fight, I still want Logan to be alive and well.
