YouTube stars KSI and Logan Paul are scheduled to throw down in the boxing ring once again in November, but word is still out on an undercard for the rematch - but one YouTuber is issuing a heated fight request ahead of time.
YouTuber Yousef “Fouseytube” Erakat has returned to social media after an extended hiatus, and he’s making his comeback in a big way, challenging social media stars Jake Paul and Deji Olatunji to set foot in the boxing ring.
It was Deji who initially called out Fouseytube during a livestream in mid-August, claiming that his potential opponent was “nowhere near ready” - but that wasn’t the end of their beef, by far.
Deji later reacted to a video of Fousey sparring with fellow YouTuber Alex Wassabi on August 26, where he roasted Fousey’s boxing skills and claimed that he wanted to fly to Los Angeles to fight him.
This didn’t impress Fouseytube, who lashed out at Deji in a series of scathing Twitter posts, where he called Deji the “biggest bitch on YouTube” and even referenced his ongoing family feud with KSI.
“Yo Deji, you’re hands down the BIGGEST BITCH on YouTube,” Erakat wrote. “All you do is talk shit you can’t back up. That’s why your own brother doesn’t claim you. You won’t see me OR Alex on the undercard. If you want it you can get it. Until then, go hide in your brother's shadow.”
Yo @Deji you’re hands down the BIGGEST BITCH on YouTube. All you do is talk shit you can’t back up. That’s why your own brother doesn’t claim you. You won’t see me OR Alex on the undercard.

However, Fouseytube quickly changed his stance, later tagging KSI with a request to let him fight his little brother on the rematch undercard.
“Yo KSI, put me on the undercard against your crackhead brother,” he continued. “I’ll knock him back into being an obedient little brother.”

While KSI has yet to respond to Fousey’s request, Deji isn’t the only YouTuber he’s challenged: he likewise called out Jake Paul, who claimed that he would take his offer into consideration if he “shows me proof that he met Drake.”
Fousey countered the low blow by referencing Paul’s alleged cheating scandal with ex-girlfriend Erika Costell, writing, “that’s like me saying, ‘I’ll only fight Jake if he shows proof that he loves Tana.’”

The KSI vs Logan Paul rematch is slated for November 9 at the Los Angeles Staples Center - although ticketing and live streaming information has yet to be revealed at the time of writing.
