KSI versus Logan Paul boxing match looks set to go ahead

KSI versus Logan Paul boxing match looks set to go ahead

The much anticpated KSI versus Logan Paul boxing match has been seemingly confirmed. 

KSI released a video on his YouTube channel yesterday documenting Logan Paul agreeing to the fight and presenting a contract.

The pair proceeded to trash talk each other for a few minutes before shaking hands and agreeing to schedule the match on August 25th 2018.

"It's gonna happen, trust. I can't wait," KSI said in the video.

"Legit, I'm doing the world a favour by knocking his *ss out."

This isn't the first instance of KSI inciting a brawl. Last month, KSI and Joe Weller went head-to-head in a boxing match. The two YouTubers feuded in videos and on Twitter for months before clashing in the ring in Febuary.

The pair both livestreamed the boxing match to their respective YouTube channels and a reported 1.6 million watched the events unfold live. The archived videos now have almost 25 million views.

KSI won the match by technical knockout in the third of six rounds. He's now confident that he can take down Paul.

Given the sheer influence of KSI and Logan Paul separately, this clash of YouTube champions looks set to be historical for the platform.
