Date and Location for KSI vs Logan Paul UK Press Conference Ahead of YouTube Boxing Fight

Date and Location for KSI vs Logan Paul UK Press Conference Ahead of YouTube Boxing Fight

The second press conference in the build up to the YouTube Boxing fight night between KSI and Logan Paul, as well as ComedyShortsGamer and Jake Paul, has been announced to take place in the UK.

The first press conference was held in Los Angeles in June, and saw a packed crowd witness the back and forth between the two sets of brothers, before it came to an abrupt end.

Logan Paul was infuriated as KSI mocked his apology video released following the infamous 'suicide forest' debacle, in which Paul had been chastised by the YouTube community and mainstream media for filming the corpse of a suicide victim in a vlog.

When KSI began his impression of the apology, Paul reached for his bandana which set off a pushing match on stage resulting in a swift end to the event.

But there is no doubt that the press conference did its job in ramping up anticipation for the big fight on August 25th, and a second one was expected but this time to be held in the UK.

The UK conference will take place on the evening of July 18th, in the York Hall in London, with all four fighters to be in attendance.

The event is free to enter, with no tickets required, but there is a 1000 person capacity which will simply be assigned first come first serve.

This time around KSI and younger brother ComedyShortsGamer or 'Deji' will have the home crowd advantage, which will make a big difference compared to the LA conference.

Fans will be hoping for a more co-ordinated conference this time around, as previous host Shannon Briggs struggled to keep the Q&A section focused.
