Popular YouTuber Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji revealed who he hopes to fight next, following his boxing rematch with controversial social media star Logan Paul in November 2019.

KSI made the reveal during a YouTube video uploaded on January 15, where he allowed his fans to call him via the popular voice and texting app, ‘Discord.’

Among the hilarious comments and invasive questions came a query from a fan asking who KSI hoped to fight after his rematch with Paul.

“If you beat Logan Paul, who is your next opponent going to be?” the fan asked.

“Jake Paul,” KSI answered decisively, moving right along to the next caller.

It looks like KSI is set on throwing down with both Paul brothers, which comes as no surprise to fans; both Logan and Jake Paul mocked the feud between KSI and his younger brother, Deji, during which Logan invited Deji onto his podcast to speak out about the ordeal.

KSI vs Logan Paul, YouTubeKSI threw down with Logan Paul on August 25, 2018 – which ultimately ended in a draw.

While Jake Paul denied Deji a rematch, he hasn’t spoken out on KSI’s latest challenge. In fact, Paul is in a fair amount of hot water, after his lawyers withdrew from defending him against a lawsuit filed in 2018 due to a controversial prank video (not including YouTube’s recent change in policy regarding dangerous pranks, which kicked into action following Paul’s ‘Bird Box’ challenge video).

The KSI vs Logan Paul rematch is scheduled for November 2019, and will take place on American soil (although an exact date and venue have yet to be determined).

Former rapper Logic dropped the price of house – over $226k – on a Pokemon card. The Twitch star bought the insanely rare 1st Edition Charizard at an auction, and broke a major record for the Nintendo collectible. 

Despite releasing in 1999, the Pokemon Trading Card Game has seen an explosion in value over the last two years. Items that were once traded on school playgrounds around the world for nothing are now selling for the price of a house.

Lately, the hobby has been attracting attention from popular stars such as Logan Paul who paid $216k for a base set booster box. On October 9, Twitch streamer Logic raised the bar even higher after spending $226k on a shadowless 1st Edition Charizard – and also broke a record in the process.

Logic breaks record buying $226k Pokemon card

The 1st Edition Pokemon card made waves in the TCG community when buyers quickly drove the bid up to $124k. On October 9, the item ended at an astonishing $226,088.76, with the buyer’s premium included. It was also “shadowless” – which means there’s no shadow on the right-hand side of the art. box, which is rarer.

Shockingly, the winner was none other then former rapper and Twitch star, Logic. The streamer made the reveal on Twitter in a reply to YouTube personality Logan Paul. “@LoganPaul I’m the one at the auction for 183k Lololol,” he said.

Released in 1997, Charizard has often been the crown jewel of the Pokemon TCG. Decades later, its popularity has maintained and is the most sought-after monster from the original base set.

According to card investing company, Cardhops, the sale is now the new record holder for the highest price that the Charizard card has sold for. Business analyst Darren Rovell confirmed this, stating, “Beats record for the card by more than $50,000.”

Logic’s Pokemon card splurge smashed a record.

While Logic being the auction winner might surprise some, this isn’t the first time the popular streamer has dropped big money on the Nintendo hobby. On October 9, he tweeted out that he’d spent $23k on a base set booster box from 1999.

“Just opened a $23k Pokemon base set box! Only a few back in but look what I pulled!!” he exclaimed, as he revealed that he had pulled another Charizard card – though this one wasn’t 1st Edition or shadowless.

Pokemon TCG fever seems to be at an all-time high. On October 9, Logan Paul hosted a livestream where he opened up a 1st Edition base set booster box he paid $216k for.

The star pulled a Charizard card worth up to $85k, and even popular YouTuber Mr Beast won a $30k Blastoise. With Logic dropping over $226k for a single card, it seems the sky’s the limit for the Nintendo hobby.
