Logan Paul Vs. KSI: These YouTube Stars Are Ready To Pound Each Other Again

Getty ImagesThe first time YouTube star Logan Paul stepped into a boxing ring vs. fellow internet phenom KSI, he couldn’t believe how simple it was.

After the second round was finished, Paul walked back to his corner and told his coaches that fighting KSI was easier than any of the sparring partners with whom he’d worked in the leadup to the sold-out event.

“I was laughing because I couldn’t believe how much better at boxing I was than him,” Paul, who will meet KSI in a rematch on Saturday in Los Angeles on DAZN, told me this week.

This time, Paul and KSI, aka Olajide “JJ” Olatunji, will fight as professionals with no headgear and with 10-ounce gloves in a cruiserweight matchup.

“Logan started the fight better and slightly faded toward the end (being his first boxing match),” Dave Mason, the sports book manager of , told me in an email in September.

That could be helpful for two-division world titlist Billy Joe Saunders, the U.K. native who will make his American debut, and for a potential rising star like Devin Haney.
