The hype is starting to build for the much anticipated KSI vs Logan Paul YouTube boxing fight as the two vloggers face off to settle their beef, and the first official press conference has now been set.
In addition to the headline fight, both KSI and Logan Paul’s younger brothers, Deji (ComedyShortsGamer) and Jake Paul, will also be on the undercard, in what will undoubtedly be a massive event.
Combined, the YouTuber’s channels have around 60 million subscribers, and with the hype train building over recent months, it will likely shatter the previous live stream viewing records come the actual fight on August 25th.
KSI announced the first press conference set to take place on Saturday June 16th, scheduled for 12pm PST (8pm BST, 3pm EST).
All four fighters will be in attendance at the conference at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, which will be an opportunity for fans on the West Coast to see them in person.

The fight itself will take place in Manchester, England, but it is likely there will be another conference and weigh in taking place in the UK also.
