YouTube stars KSI and Logan Paul are set to face off against their respective opponents in an exciting double main event influencer-boxing extravaganza. The highly anticipated bout was confirmed after Misfits Boxing teased the card during their Series 008 event in Nashville, Tennessee.
The event, held on July 22, saw various influencers engaging in intense boxing matches. Just before the final bout of the night, Misfits president Mams Taylor took the stage, hinting at the next installment of the Misfits x DAZN influencer-boxing showdown. Fans quickly speculated that this upcoming card would feature KSI and Logan Paul, two prominent YouTubers known for their past boxing showdown.
The rumors turned out to be true as KSI himself announced that the next event, known as the card, will showcase both him and Logan Paul in separate fights. KSI took to Twitter to reveal the exciting news:
While the opponents for both YouTubers are yet to be disclosed, fans have been speculating on who they might be facing. Judging from the teaser shown at Series 008, it’s likely that Logan Paul could be up against mixed martial artist Dillon Danis, who has a long-standing feud with both the Paul brothers and KSI.
On the other hand, it’s speculated that KSI might take on Tommy Fury, a British boxer with whom he has expressed interest in facing for some time. Fury’s reluctance to sign an official contract with KSI has fueled anticipation for a potential showdown.
The card is scheduled to take place on October 14 at the AO Arena in Manchester, marking a significant moment for both KSI and Logan Paul. This event will be their first time back in the boxing ring together since their memorable rematch in 2019.
In other news, Logan Paul has recently been vocal about an unrelated issue involving Jonah Hill’s ex-girlfriend airing private messages on social media. He condemned the actions, calling the exposé “vile” and “f***** up.” On his podcast, Impaulsive, Paul expressed his concerns about the trust issues celebrities face, emphasizing the importance of keeping personal matters private.
“Being in Jonah Hill’s position, being a celebrity — a person who has to constantly worry about trust and trusting people in his life, especially people who he probably loved at one point,” Paul said, putting himself in the actor’s shoes. “And then having that trust broken by this particular person is actually vile. It’s actually f***** up.”
“She probably felt really wronged by him and wanted to get back at him,” Paul said.
“Keep your s*** private if possible, especially if you’re not even dating the person. It’s two years gone, get a f****** life woman.”
