So this is about to go down today.

I'm really keen to see Logan and Jake Paul get their asses kicked but I'm not too confident that they will. KSI might be able to win, but I have doubts about Deji..

Anyone else been following this?


Edit: Some more info...

Who Is KSI?
KSI is a British YouTuber with 18 million subscribers. His real name is Olajide William "JJ" Olatunji and he's been making videos since 31st January 2010.

He's also turned his hand to music too, releasing several EPs and just missing out on the top 10 with his debut 'Keep Up'. He participated in his first ever boxing match against fellow YouTube Joe Weller earlier this year and won with a knockout victory.

Who Is Logan Paul?
Starting out as a Vine star, Logan moved over to YouTube on 13th November 2013. He's appeared in a number of American TV shows including Law & Order and has 20 million subscribers across his two YouTube channels.

Logan was thrust into the mainstream media spotlight after posting his now infamous 'Suicide Forest' video and has since faced huge public criticism and calls for him to delete his channel.

Will KSI's Brother Deji Fight Logan's Brother Jake Paul?
Both KSI and Logan Paul have younger brothers and there are strong calls for the pair of them to step into the ring against each other on the undercard of KSI & Logan's fight.

KSI's brother Deji has called Jake out in a number of YouTube videos and now Jake has finally responded and confirmed that he will indeed be fighting Deji!

The fight looks set to take place on the undercard of the KSI vs Logan fight in August and Jake has even suggested that the winners of the two fights should battle against each other in the ultimate showdown.​

There will be a lot of haters in this thread with hot takes, but they did a magnificent job promoting this, it will be watched by millions.

Money is on KSI and Jake Paul. Deji looked horrid in the weigh in:

I thought this had already passed.

I love that these are a thing. Literally beyond parody.

Yeah, that's my thoughts on it too. I'd like Deji to win because I can't stand Jake, but watching some of Deji's sparring videos, he just seems really scared of pain.

I mean..... One has "legit" boxing training and the other has wrestling and "athleticism". It's up to you to decide who you think would win in a boxing match.

Let's go KSI.

Idk why someone would pay to see below amateur boxing. Yet here we are.

I do hope Logan loses so I don't have to hear about him wanting to go mma with his "athleticism '' anymore

I don’t know who KSI is, but hopefully he’s not as bad as Logan “suicide forest” Paul so I can root for the latter to get knocked the fuck out.

Fess up which one of you actually paid and is watching this? Is it over? Who won?

Can't lie I do have a morbid curiosity just not enough to give either of these two $10

Just did a Google search and I'm shocked at how many legit outlets seem to be giving this event promotion/coverage. It even has a Wikipedia page dedicated to it and think piece articles with boxing analysts weighing in.

It has big money attached. And its a cynical way to get young people interested in boxing.

Not a big KSI fan, but I really hope he smacks up Logan. Deji is fucked though, he looked like crap at the weigh in.

First time I heard of this. Who could I possibly root for? Aren't they all assholes?

Can someone provide more information than the OP has? When is it? Where can I watch it? Does it cost money?

Your daily reminder that the shitbag Logan Paul is dating Chloe Bennett because life isn't fair and is never going to be fair.
