Logan Paul and YouTuber KSI to Pummel Each Other in Two-Fight Boxing Match
Logan Paul is taking his hijinks to the boxing ring.
The controversial vlogger and British YouTube star KSI have agreed to a two-fight boxing match deal, with the first face-off to take place in Manchester, England on August 25. A second match will take place place in the United States, date TBA.
KSI — real name Olajide William Olatunji — is a 24-year-old YouTube personality, comedian and amateur boxer. To prep for the upcoming battle, he's been training with boxers Floyd Mayweather Sr. and Badou Jack in Los Angeles.
In February, KSI fought and beat fellow YouTube personality Joe Weller in a similar match.
Last week, Paul and KSI traded barbs on Twitter, with KSI claiming that Paul's team was "playing" with him by "ignoring messages and cancelling calls" about their upcoming match deal.
In response, Paul claimed that KSI's management had attempted to renege on their initial 50/50 ticket sales split agreement.
Fortunately, it seems the two were able to work out their differences... for now. That's likely to change when they get in the ring together this summer. Who's your money on?
