The hype is starting to build ahead of the biggest live streaming event in YouTube history as KSI takes on Logan Paul in a charity boxing match.
Taking place on August 25th in the heart of London, 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.
The buildup to the fight is expected to be just as furious as the eventual bout, and industry reporter Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem has revealed when we’ll first see the two in a press conference.
The Drama Alert host Tweeted that on June 15th, the pair will square up in Hollywood for their first official press conference.
Unfortunately at the time of writing there has been no further details, other than it’ll take place on Friday, June 15th and will be open to the public. It is hoped that the full undercard of the fight will be revealed during the conference.
