YouTube stars KSI and Logan Paul are set to touch gloves on November 9 in the net’s most anticipated boxing rematch yet – but the fight isn’t just attracting the attention of YouTubers and internet celebs.
The KSI vs Logan Paul rematch is making waves across the social media sphere, with boxing pros and critics alike speaking their mind in wake of the bout “going pro,” with both YouTubers foregoing headgear.
However, it’s not just boxing fans stirring the pot ahead of the rematch: even major celebrities are buzzing about the fight, including Canadian pop star Justin Bieber.
Justin Bieber is no stranger to internet stars, having made friends with Logan Paul via Instagram over the summer – but one of Paul’s September Instagram posts elicited a strong reaction from the singer.
Paul posted another promotional video to hype up his rematch on September 20, which featured a look inside his training regimen as well as his appearance in the September 14 press conference.
Bieber had a passionate stance on the subject, writing in a comment, “Rip his head off” – obviously referencing Paul’s longtime rival and rematch opponent, KSI.

This wouldn’t be the first time Bieber has commented on the YouTubers’ upcoming fight, either: the star likewise claimed that KSI had showed up at his house in another post of Paul’s in late August, where the internet sensation wrote, “…KSI, I’m going to break every bone in your face later this year.”
In fact, things weren’t always friendly between the two celebs, as Logan Paul even challenged Bieber to a boxing match after the singer called out actor Tom Cruise for a UFC match.
The singer even seemed to be up for the challenge, responding to Paul’s proposition of “let’s dance” with, “I’ll fight the both of you at the same time” – although that potential fight has yet to come about months later.
I’ll fight the both of you at the same time.

With both KSI and Logan Paul having only two months to train, fans and critics alike are waiting with bated breath for them to settle their beef once and for all – as is Justin Gaethje, apparently.
