Get Ready For The Biggest Event In Internet History: KSI vs. Logan Paul
KSI and Logan Paul will fight later tonight in Manchester
YouTubers KSI and Logan Paul are boxing it out in an amateur boxing match later tonight. KSI is a British YouTube star and Logan Paul is an American YouTube star. The match will take place in two parts in Manchester, UK.
Olajide William “JJ” Olatunji, Jr is a British YouTube personality, internet celebrity, comedian, actor, rapper, and amateur boxer. His nickname is KSI.
KSI has over 19 millions subscribers on YouTube and his videos have been viewed over four billion times. He is Britain’s biggest male internet star.
This is KSI’s second celebrity boxing match - his first one was against Joe Weller, who is another YouTube. The fight received over 21 million live views with another 25 million after the fight.
Logan Paul got his start on the Vine and then moved over to YouTube. He is well-known for his slapstick humor and intricately planned videos on YouTube. Paul has had a small acting career playing roles in “Law & Order” and “Stitchers.” His goal is to be the “biggest entertainer in the world” and he’s willing to stop at nothing until he achieves it.
His never-ending need for fame and success hit a peak in December 2017 when he posted a video of him and his friends discovering a dead body in Japan’s “suicide forest.” The controversy took him away from YouTube for a month to take time and reflect. He has since talked about the incident via various interviews, including one with fellow YouTube Casey Neistat and has since pledged to donate $1 million to various suicide prevention organizations, starting with a $250,000 donation to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.
After KSI’s fight and victory against Weller, he called out Paul to fight. The pair agreed to fight in February and the planning ensued. They will fight tonight at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, UK at 7 p.m.
YouTube will be live-streaming the fight and there are already multiple accounts that have started streaming the pre-fight countdown.
