Following a majority draw in their first bout on August 25, 2018, YouTube stars KSI and Logan Paul are set to get back in the ring for a rematch in the Los Angeles Staples Center on November 9.
While the undercard for the popular main-event currently features a number of professional boxers and even the likes of undefeated world champion Billy Joe Saunders, there’s a good chance we see additional YouTubers thrown into the mix, such as Logan's brother Jake Paul.
Jake, who earned a fifth-round TKO victory over KSI’s brother Deji Olatunji at the first event, has made it clear that he’s looking for an opponent for the upcoming undercard.
In a recent clip, he essentially called out FaZe Sensei, another popular YouTube personality who similarly earned himself a TKO victory against Overtflow at the first KSI/Logan Paul bout.
“There’s another guy named FaZe Sensei, who got a million views on the re-upload of his fight,” Jake Paul said, alluding to the prospect of lining up a boxing match against the FaZe member.

FaZe Sensei responded to the comments made by Jake Paul, Tweeting: “I mean if he’s asking for it…”
He also followed up on Instagram, stating that “I never called @jakepaul out because I didn’t think he would be willing to fight me. Let’s give him what’s he wants. #FaZeUp.”
Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn recently commented on the potential of adding Jake Paul to the undercard, stating that “it’s just about strategy moving forward. We can’t make our business like, ‘Oh yeah, everybody - do you wanna go? Do you wanna go? There’s got to be strategy and there’s got to be skill.”
Thus, it remains to be seen whether Jake Paul will even be competing on the undercard, let alone if his opponent will be FaZe Sensei or any other YouTube personality for that matter.
KSI vs Logan Paul Part 2 will take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA on November 9, 15 months following their initial matchup, which ended up in a famous draw.
