British YouTuber and music artist Joe Weller has predicted that Logan Paul will take the victory over KSI in their upcoming rematch.

Weller, who commentated the YouTubers’ fight at the event’s ringside, broke down the match in a video where he stated that Logan was the true victor – and that he’s a good candidate to take their second fight, as well.

While he felt that KSI had fantastic energy and fighting spirit, he held that Logan landed more punches overall.

Weller ended up scoring the fight 4 – 2 in Logan’s favor, with the final round going to KSI. 

He noted that KSI’s conditioning was a major part of his energy, citing Logan Paul’s muscle mass as a huge factor in his exhaustion toward the end of the fight.

However, he feels that Paul will slim down and condition himself before their next match – which will prove significant in him taking the victory.

“He’s gonna learn from this. I think he will shred right down and condition himself to go a much longer distance… if he can stay energized the whole fight, I can’t not see him winning.”

He also felt that Paul dominated the match when he was ‘fresh’ at the beginning of their bout. Weller likewise cited Paul’s short time in training – with his performance following just four months of practice, and with another six months to go, he feels that additional time spent in the gym will only add to his strength.

He didn’t count out KSI, though, and predicted that the white-collar boxer might improve “200-fold” ahead of their rematch.

While no date has been officially announced, the KSI vs Logan Paul match was contracted as a two-fight event, with the second installment set to occur in February 2019.

Bryce Hall responds to backlash over leaked Brock Pierce endorsement DMs

With the US elections just around the corner, everyone – including famous TikTokers – is gearing up to cast a vote that will change the shape of the country’s future. However, Bryce Hall was on the receiving end of criticism after a leaked conversation seemed to confirm that he was voting for third party candidate, Brock Pierce.

It seems like wherever Bryce Hall goes, drama isn’t too far behind. Only this week, he has been warring with Sway House co-founder Thomas Petrou for reaching out in order to start “fake beef” as well as finding himself in a brawl with restaurant employees, with the LAPD later filing a felony battery report over it.

This time, fans were upset after leaked messages appeared to confirm that Hall was not only endorsing third candidate Brock Pierce, but was also planning on voting for him.

Quick to dispel these rumors alongside fan suspicion over his reason for visiting Wyoming, Hall posted a Tweet explaining that the only reason he was to use his influence for good: namely, by “encourag[ing] the youth to get involved in the political process”.

Referring to the leaked messages, where he seems to confirm he’s voting for Pierce, Hall claims that he was merely “making a joke with an acquaintance,” who then “decided to be an a**hole and share it”.

“The only person I endorse for president is Mamma Hall. Take that to the bank,” he quipped.

However, not all fans were satisfied with his response, with one Twitter user arguing that voting for a third candidate isn’t something to joke about.

The fan said: “The thing is this isn’t something to joke about though? As a black supporter, it’s frustrating because advocating for a third party is advocating for someone who wants to take away my basic human rights so no Bryce I’m not laughing.”

Other fans, however, showed support for Hall, with one Twitter user saying: “What I’m understanding here is that Bryce here isn’t allowed to support who he believes in, am I getting that right?”

Why did fans think Hall was endorsing Brock Pierce?

Fans initially became suspicious when Hall posed for a selfie outside Pierce’s presidential campaign van.

Soon after, entrepreneur Mahbod Moghadam leaked a conversation he has with Hall about Pierce where, after discussing Hall’s upcoming interview with the candidate for his podcast, he told Moghadam that Pierce “was an interesting guy” who “had my vote.”

Brock Pierce later shared the exchange on his Instagram story.

Many fans resulted with outrage at this apparent endorsement, with many of them accusing Hall of using his platform irresponsibly. One fan said: “Must be nice to have the privilege of not caring who to endorse in this election and influencing your followers to vote for a third party.”

Several other fans accused him of encouraging fans to “waste” their vote, with one Twitter user asking: “Does he even realize what this does?! I’m so disappointed.”

While Hall seems to have poured cold water over a possible Brock Pierce endorsement, it is clear that he has some way to go before he regains fans’ trust.
