YouTube stars Logan Paul and KSI will settle their grudge once and for all on November 9 in the boxing ring. This bout isn’t for internet celebs, alone, with one major name in the music biz set to make an appearance at the fight.
Canadian pop star Justin Bieber will reportedly make a showing at the rematch, having expressed support for Logan Paul in the months leading up to the fight.
This time, Bieber is throwing out a bold prediction for the proceedings, claiming that the rematch will end with an early KO from YouTube’s Maverick mogul.
Bieber made this prediction in an Instagram post on November 5, uploading a photo of Logan Paul clad in his gear from last year’s match with the caption, “Early knockout prediction, what’s yours?”

Paul replied to Bieber’s post in kind, writing, “Victory in a violent fashion.”
This isn’t the first time Bieber has commented on the fight, either: the celebrity even gave Paul explicit instructions for the bout in late September, telling Paul to “Rip [KSI’s] head off.”
KSI didn’t seem to take Beiber’s comments personally and even openly laughed at the matter during a subsequent interview with TMZ Sports.
“I f**king died,” KSI said of the exchange. “If anything, I thought it was cool as hell. Justin Bieber actually knows me, fam. That’s ridiculous! ...if anything, it’s gonna be more funny when I knock out Logan. ...I hope Justin Bieber’s gonna be sitting ringside so after I knock out Logan I can go up to him and be like, ‘So whose head was gonna get ripped off?’”
Bieber isn’t alone in his prediction, though: in fact, experts from online betting platform Bovada claim that Logan Paul is more likely to win the fight, according to their odds.
Currently, Bovada’s odds place Paul as the favorite, sitting on their money line bet at -200, while KSI ranks as the rematch’s underdog at +160.
With America’s hometown hero looking to take the match and seal YouTube’s most bitter rivalry to date, all eyes are on these explosive internet celebrities as the clock ticks down to November 9.
