The build-up to the KSI and Logan Paul charity boxing match heated up at an E3 afterparty as the two came face to face for only the second time.
Taking place on August 25th in Manchester, the pair of popular YouTubers will put their pride on the line in front of thousands of fans in the arena, with millions expected to watch online.
KSI started the YouTube boxing craze when he fought his old friend, Joe Weller, in front of 8,000 fans in February. KSI won with a convincing stoppage in the third round when the referee stopped the fight.
During the post-fight interview, Logan and Jake Paul were called out by KSI, as he invited them to try and take his new YouTube boxing belt.
After months of debate about whether it would happen, Logan and KSI announced that on August 25th in London, the two would do battle. With a combined subscriber count of over 36 million people, it is expected to be the biggest live streaming event in YouTube history.
Since the fight was confirmed there has been relatively little confrontation between the two, only meeting once in the gym of Floyd Mayweather in Las Vegas. That all changed in the early hours of Thursday June 14th.
KSI and Logan came face to face during an after party at E3 in California, and the encounter was filmed by a number of different people also in attendance.
The pair appeared to be talking smack to one another, with Logan Paul heard saying KSI’s head looks like the size of a watermelon, claiming he can’t miss.
In return, KSI promised that he’d be looking down on him after the fight, but the American claimed that each time he sees the British YouTuber, he gets less and less scared.
Eventually, the two are broken up when Drama Alert’s Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem gets involved.
