Joe Weller Believes KSI Has One Major Vulnerability Ahead of Logan Paul Fight

KSI’s first boxing opponent, Joe Weller, reckons he had a major weakness in his fighting ability that Logan Paul may be able to exploit in their upcoming bout.

Now only days away, the fight will take place on August 25, as KSI tries to hold on to his unbeaten record up against the American Logan, who has the advantage in height and reach.

KSI’s most obvious advantage is his experience, and that comes from Joe Weller himself, who was comfortably beaten by KSI back in 2017.

But, despite the rather one sided loss for Weller, he still thinks he has discovered what could well be KSI’s downfall.

Using footage from KSI’s face to face with Logan, where he explains how he will work the body shot, Joe Weller recalls he did the same thing in their fight, but it leaves KSI vulnerable.

“I remember in our fight, I think it was round 2, that JJ started going to my body. He would throw by dropping his arm, almost like an uppercut to the body. 

But it would leave [the right side of his face] so open. So if Logan can clock on to that, and throw the counter left hook as [KSI] drops that right hand to body, I think little things like that will seriously throw JJ off.

And that is where the technique of JJ could fault him, that’s what could let him down.”

Given Logan’s height advantage, KSI’s plan to work on the body is probably his best bet in the early stages, but he will need to ensure he is fast and aware enough to avoid the counters.

With the fight only days away, the time for planning and preparation is likely behind the fighters now though, and it just comes down to who is most composed on the night.

You can watch the fight live on the official KSI vs Logan Paul YouTube channel, but it is a pay-per-view live event, costing £7.50 to purchase access. It takes place at the Manchester Arena, UK, and is expected to pull in a sell out crowd.


Russian Instagram influencer torches his $150,000 Mercedes on purpose

An Instagram influencer literally set his own $150,000 Mercedes Benz on fire after he got fed up with how his local dealership was repairing it.

Several videos of Russian Instagram and YouTube star Mikhail Litvin torching the black GT 63 S went viral over the weekend, with people around the internet both amazed and horrified that someone has enough extra cash rolling around they can just send a luxury car up in flames.

But, Litvin’s display surprisingly wasn’t just a random instance of pure, nihilistic capitalism captured on film, as he claims he was sending a message to his local Mercedes dealership and the company as a whole.

The saga begins like this: Mikhail bought a brand new GT 63 S (running around $140,000 to $160,000) and somehow, broke the engine five times in a row through various automotive shenanigans.

Eventually, he became fed up with how his local Mercedes Benz dealership was repairing the vehicle each time he brought it in, even replacing the turbo kit with one purchased off of eBay at one point.

Paying to have sub-par parts installed in his car seems to have been the final straw for the Russian, who filled his trunk up with gasoline and brought plenty of cameras to a deserted field to send his vehicle off with a Viking funeral.

After bathing the car in fuel, Litvin lights a Looney Tunes-style trail from offscreen and the poor four-door goes up in a massive fireball.

Litvin made sure not to miss a spot.

After contemplating all the memories he had in the Mercedes while the inferno raged behind him, the YouTuber drove into the sunset with his new whip, a classic teal Lada that only needed a little bit of a running start to get going.

With over 11 million followers on Instagram and 4 million subscribers on YouTube, chances are good that Litvin will be picking up a fly new car sometime soon to replace the smoking heap that was his GT 63 S.

Exactly what he’ll replace it with remains to be seen, but we’d bet he’ll have a video out about it when he does.
