With the YouTube boxing match between KSI and Logan Paul fast approaching on August 25, both fighters have met face-to-face to discuss their beef, with Johnny Nelson acting referee.

It is the second face-to-face meeting in build up to the fight, with their siblings, Jake Paul and Deji having already published their confrontational discussion, also with World Champion boxer Johnny Nelson.

But the main event will be KSI vs Logan, and the meeting took place after the heated press conference, which saw Logan storm off the stage as KSI levelled insults against him, his girlfriend and his family.

Similar to Jake and Deji, not much is known about the supposed ‘beef’ between these two immensely popular YouTubers, and so Nelson attempted to guide the conversation to reveal why the two are opposed.

KSI was mainly critical about Logan’s YouTube content, particularly his past controversies which have made him a ‘hated’ person online.

He was also boastful about his dominant win over Joe Weller in the first YouTube boxing event, but Logan Paul was quick to remind him that he’s a different beast altogether.

“I’m just an athlete. [Joe Weller] is not an athlete, that’s not how athletes perform. No offence to Joe Weller, I’m just not Joe Weller. I’m a different beast. I’m a corn-fed Ohio boy.”

KSI remained unfazed however, confident he will knock Logan Paul out when the big day comes along.

“Oh yeh, I’m going to knock him out. 100%. He’s getting knocked out, and it’s not going to be pretty. And you’re going to be worried. You’re going to get in the fight and realize, ‘oh, this is a fight, this is happening. Can I handle this guy? No I can’t.'”

When the pair came to end the interview, KSI extended a hand to Logan, who turned his nose up to it, citing the comments towards his girlfriend and family which he felt went too far.

You can watch the full face-to-face meeting between KSI and Logan below.

Call of Duty

Dr Disrespect explains how Black Ops Cold War could be “so much more fun”

Dr Disrespect has chimed in on the much-maligned SBMM system used in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and other titles, and although he doesn’t blame Treyarch, the Doc is less than impressed with the system and wants it removed.

Dr Disrespect is all about violence, speed, and momentum. However, he hasn’t been able to spread his wings in Black Ops Cold War and fly like the eagle he was born to be, and he blames it all on SBMM.

SBMM, which stands for skill-based matchmaking, is a system used in many popular games to try and balance out lobbies.

Some players and developers think it’s a good thing, but many others believe it tends to ‘punish’ higher-skilled players like Dr Disrespect. It throws them into lobbies with other elite players, which results in ‘sweaty’ games where everyone is good and trying really hard to win.

The game becomes more serious and less casual, and it demands more effort, which is less than ideal for streamers like the Doc, who want to entertain.

Treyarch
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is one of many games that uses SBMM.

Dr Disrespect has never been one to hold his tongue and mince his words on matters important to him. In his latest stream, he had a frustrating time playing Black Ops Cold War due to SBMM and shared his thoughts.

Man, that SBMM, what a… what a…” he said, struggling to find the words to summarize his rage. “SBMM results to exact same fight every single time.” It’s a sentiment shared by players from many different games and skill brackets.

“It has nothing to do with… game design,” he added.

“Treyarch knocks it out the park… I just think it has something to do with a lot of the technical stuff… I would take that tech out.”

Dr Disrespect isn’t one to hold back on his opinions, especially when it comes to games.

Dr Disrespect knows that it isn’t Treyarchs fault. Instead, he refers to a “third-party” who works with them and “manages all the data and everything.” He says, “they’re able to make all these tweaks, and all that stuff,” and the fact that SBMM is implemented at all is “such a bummer.”

“I want some sheep in my lobbies,” he said. “I want a couple triple peekers. The game could like just be so much more fun. I don’t understand why they have it.”

The related segment begins at 3:38:30 in the video below.

Dr Disrespect isn’t the first person to express his concerns about SBMM, and he won’t be the last. However, the Doc is a pillar in the gaming community. He has also been involved in some behind-the-scenes level design, so his opinion has some weight.

Either way, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is still loads of fun. SBMM might even help you become a better player if you’re willing to embrace it.
