If you've been anywhere near the internet over the last couple of days, whether you like it or not, you'll probably be aware that KSI and Logan Paul had their long-awaited YouTube boxing rematch over the weekend.
The pair's ongoing differences have become an internet obsession, and thousands have tuned in to watch them fight it out. But, one downside was that viewers had to pay $19.99 per month or $99.99 for an annual subscription to sports streaming service, DAZN, to watch the match unfold. So, as you'd imagine, many tried their luck at watching illegal streams online for free - many of which were quickly removed for violating copyright.
But one man found a creative and hilarious way of streaming the fight for free without setting off YouTube's copyright sensors... through the reflection in his glasses. And his ingenious efforts paid off - attracting a whopping 11,000 viewers.
Keep scrolling to see what the result of Saturday's fight was as well and the creative way one fan illegally streamed the fight on YouTube.
In case you aren't familiar with him, Logan Paul is an American actor and successful Internet personality.
He has 25.9 million subscribers in total across his projects.
But there are some things that he has done for fame that many found unforgivable...
So maybe he's not always doing the right thing...
And what about KSI?
He was born in 1993.
Like Logan Paul, he's also incredibly popular.
But who'd win in a fight?
The pair first took to the ring in 2018.
So, here we are again...
The fight took place in LA.
It was a split decision victory.Two judges scored the bout 57–54 and 56–55 for KSI, while the third, rather controversially, scored it 56–55 in favor of Paul.
But Paul made one BIG mistake.Instead of fighting properly, Paul opted to fight dirty, and as KSI was falling down, he decided to throw another two shots. One to the back of his head, and another as he finally hit the canvas. In what would've been a 10-8 round for Paul, he actually had two points deducted.
So, what next?Following the fight, the pair embraced and Paul seemed to agree that the result was accurate. Their differences will continue, however. With Paul looking for another fight with KSI, and KSI claiming that it is done.
Thousands tuned in to watch the long-anticipated rematch.But it came at a hefty price. To watch the fight, viewers had to pay $19.99 for a month's subscription or $99.99 for a year's subscription to DAZN, a sports streaming service.
Which, of course, led many trying to pirate the match so people could watch for free.YouTube, however, was quick to take down the illegal streaming footage.
But one viewer found a creative way around this...He filmed himself watching the event while wearing glasses, which subsequently reflected his screen - meaning anyone watching his YouTube stream could watch the fight unfold through the reflection in his glasses.
It also meant he'd found a loophole for any copyright issues.He managed to stream the fight without alerting the site's copyright sensors. You have to admit, not only is it very creative but it's hugely impressive that he even managed to think of the idea.
Snaps showed the unconventional stream boasted a whopping 11,000 viewers.
