KSI vs Logan Paul

Boxing results weekend roundup: KSI vs Logan Paul, Isaac Dogboe vs Hidenori Otake and more

> It may well be a farce but is also now one of the most successful pay-per-view events ever, as two Youtubers squared off on Saturday. Around a million people are thought to have paid to watch the two flail and swing their way to a majority draw. American Paul started well but Brit KSI took over in the second half of this six-rounder that featured plenty of effort but little else. Paul’s brother Jake stopped KSI’s brother Deji on the ‘undercard’.

Isaac Dogboe vs Hidenori Otake
Ray Beltran vs Jose Pedraza

WBO super-bantamweight champion Dogboe, a UK-raised Ghanaian, looks a pure beast and became the first man to halt Japanese toughguy Otake – who took a peak Scott Quigg all 12 rounds – decking him and finishing the bout at 2-18 of the very first session in Glendale, Arizona on Saturday. You can see the brutal stoppage here.
Also on the Glendale show, Beltran lost his WBO lightweight strap and a lucrative December shot at Vasyl Lomachenko, when he dropped a clear decision to “Sniper” Pedraza. Scores were 115-112 and 117-110 (twice), and Pedraza, who knocked his opponent down in the 11th, will now meet Lomachenko himself.

Darragh Foley vs Chris Jenkins
Stephen Ormond vs George Ashie

An accidental head-clash in the second round led to Jenkins being ruled out at the close of the third, and a technical draw called. Also in Glasgow, Ormond and Ashie traded knockdowns with the former eking out a 10-round decision 95-94 on the scoring referee’s card. Irishman Ormond has already called out Pedraza for a shot at his new WBO lightweight belt.
