The Big Question: How would you feel if pro ‘fights’ between YouTube stars became a regular occurrence?

Following Saturday's fight between KSI and Logan Paul, we asked this week's panellists for their thoughts on YouTuber battles becoming a regular thing

Ed Mulholland/Matchroom Boxing USA

Michael Conlan (Featherweight contender)

As a one-off I didn’t mind it. I actually enjoyed the buildup. But the fight itself? Not so much. Would I enjoy it becoming a regular thing? Definitely not. Boxing isn’t a circus. It’s a serious business and this sort of thing could start making it a joke. There is big money in these high-profile celebs fighting – but don’t call it boxing.
