KSI may have already earned a cool £80 million from his fight with Logan Paul, after over 750,000 tuned in on YouTube.
It was previously agreed that KSI would take home the profits from sales in the UK – Paul will take the profits from their second match in the US which is due to take place in early 2019 – and with around 773,000 people tuning in to YouTube to watch the fight for a fee of £7.50 that gives KSI a potential total £5,797,500 heading for his bank account.
With Manchester Arena also seating 21,000 for boxing matches, and the average ticket costing around £100, that could give KSI another £2.1 million, bringing his possible weekend total to nearly £8 million.
It was also agreed before the fight that the purse was split 50/50 and although official details for the purse have yet to be revealed, claims suggest that it could have been more than £150 million.
In total that means KSI may have walked away from this weekend with £83 million.
And thats still not taking into account lucrative sponsorship deals that the pair signed, as well as advertising revenue.
Accounting for the event cost and revenue wont be known for a while, KSIs manager told Metro.co.uk.
However that figure could have been much higher if it wasnt for illegal streams which took over much of the internet; more than one million people tuned in to various streams on Twitch at one point.
A Twitch representative told The Verge that it is against the rules for streamers to upload content that does not belong to them, and that anyone who does so is potentially liable to DMCA takedowns.
We have been responsive to related reports, Twitch added.
