KSI and Logan Paul are guaranteed to make at least $900,000 (£695,000) from their fight on Saturday night.

The two YouTube stars will be the main event at the Staples Center and their rematch has been licensed by the California State Athletic Commission, which means a guaranteed amount of money will be given to each fighter on the card for competing.

KSI and Logan Paul reportedly raked in an estimated £150 million from their first fight in August last year and both stand to make another incredible amount.

But their purses for their first professional fight have been confirmed as $900,000 (£695,000) each.

Billy Joe Saunders is defending his WBO super middleweight title against unbeaten Argentine Marcelo Esteban Coceres and the British fighter will earn $750k (£579k).

Eddie Hearn, who has been promoting the fight, has also revealed that celebrities have contacted him to discuss the possibility of fighting the winner between KSI and Logan Paul.

‘I’ve had six or seven people – the highest-profile people in their fields – say I would like to fight the winner,’ Hearn told Behind The Gloves.

‘But they said don’t say anything, let’s see what happens and we’ll talk.

‘It’s not YouTubers, it’s guys in music, sport and films.

‘You know what it is, people are looking at it and they are intrigued, they fancy doing that, training to be a fighter is fun, it gets you in shape, it’s good for the mind.

‘But ultimately I don’t want to start doing fights with people who aren’t very good.

‘These people can fight a little bit but we’ll see.’
