The build-up to the KSI and Logan Paul charity boxing match heated up at an E3 afterparty as the two came face to face for only the second time.

Taking place on August 25th in Manchester, the pair of popular YouTubers will put their pride on the line in front of thousands of fans in the arena, with millions expected to watch online.

KSI started the YouTube boxing craze when he fought his old friend, Joe Weller, in front of 8,000 fans in February. KSI won with a convincing stoppage in the third round when the referee stopped the fight.

During the post-fight interview, Logan and Jake Paul were called out by KSI, as he invited them to try and take his new YouTube boxing belt.

After months of debate about whether it would happen, Logan and KSI announced that on August 25th in London, the two would do battle. With a combined subscriber count of over 36 million people, it is expected to be the biggest live streaming event in YouTube history.

Since the fight was confirmed there has been relatively little confrontation between the two, only meeting once in the gym of Floyd Mayweather in Las Vegas. That all changed in the early hours of Thursday June 14th.

KSI and Logan came face to face during an after party at E3 in California, and the encounter was filmed by a number of different people also in attendance.

The pair appeared to be talking smack to one another, with Logan Paul heard saying KSI’s head looks like the size of a watermelon, claiming he can’t miss.

In return, KSI promised that he’d be looking down on him after the fight, but the American claimed that each time he sees the British YouTuber, he gets less and less scared.

Eventually, the two are broken up when Drama Alert’s Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem gets involved.

Mr Beast struggles through ridiculous 24-hour ice house challenge

Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson is no stranger to over the top challenges but his latest video was one of the most difficult he’s ever filmed, as he struggled to endure 24 hours in a house made completely of ice.

While Mr Beast loves to giveaway crazy prizes to competitors, friends, and even just strangers on the street, he also loves a good challenge. From 24 hours in a prison to surviving on a deserted island, the popular YouTuber has done just about everything.

Looking to push the boundaries even further, his latest task was to endure the freezing cold for a full day. It wasn’t just a cold room with the air conditioning cranked, it was an entire house made of ice. Brick by brick the structure fully was completely encased in ice to keep Mr Beast as cold as possible.

Everything from the chairs to the toilet was also frozen solid. Mere hours into the attempt it had quickly become “one of the harder challenges [he’s] ever done.”

A few hours into the challenge and Mr Beast had to start getting regular checks to ensure he wasn’t in proper danger.

So what was the motive to remain in the ice house? If Mr Beast survived all 24 hours, his closest friends would have to cover themselves “in syrup and feathers” in public. On the other hand, if he left early, the same punishment would be applied.

After a few hours of pacing back and forth to keep his body active, he bargained for a pair of gloves. A nearby crew member handed them over and agreed to a $10,000 deal to be Mr Beast’s “spy” throughout the challenge.

This was certainly one of the more unique challenges on the channel as the gimmick never let up. Mr Beast was even forced to eat a stack of pancakes with a fork made entirely of ice. At the 12 hour mark, he conceded that “it was brutal.”

“Literally the coldest I’ve ever been in my entire life,” he said after the fact. “I was miserable.” Despite the odds being stacked against him and his friends trying to make the challenge even harder, he pushed through to the very end.

Days after revealing his most expensive video ever, it turns out this rather simple challenge was quite costly as well. 

“This video cost me around $300,000 to make. For the price that it cost me to build an ice house, I could have bought a real house.”
