KSI is back in England following the press conference ahead of his fight against Logan Paul in August, just in time to announce the ticket sales and send another dig at Logan and his brother Jake.

The fight was already very highly anticipated, but the press conference has hyped the event even further, as the second YouTube boxing fight.

KSI also took part in the first fight, between himself and fellow UK YouTuber Joe Weller, which drew in over a million live viewers and has been viewed millions more on YouTube since.

With a global affair this time round (the Paul brothers are Ohio natives living in LA), plus the larger subscriber counts at around 60million combined, this event should shatter those viewing numbers.

But it’s not only the online viewers that count, as the organizers are looking to sell out the Manchester Arena for the fight and KSI has announced that tickets will go sale on June 22nd, at 6pm BST.

The press conference itself was generally a success at building up hype, but it was cut short after Logan Paul laid hands on KSI, trying to remove his bandana. A brawl broke out but was almost immediately split up by security.

And, after announcing the ticket sale info, he also discussed the press conference briefly, explaining how “calm” he is ahead of the big fight.

“For the record, Logan’s f***ed. I’m just letting him know. If that mother f***er thinks he can beat me, he’s got another thing coming.

It’s annoying, at the press conference I had such a long speech, I had so much to say, but my man had to piss me off. I get it, cool, I know I [was] getting under your skin, but doesn’t mean you have to touch me bro. Doesn’t mean you have to try to rip off my bandana – what are you doing bro?

Man, I’m so excited for this fight. With Joe, I was just angry and I just wanted to kill him. With Logan, I’m calm. I just already know what’s going to happen. I owe it to the people, I’m doing the world a favor. It’s just a shame I can’t fight Jake at the same time – they’re both just c***ts man”

Vinnie Hacker lashes out at “manipulative” fans after TikTok fame

Vinnie Hacker has spoken out about the problems of TikTok stardom, saying some of his fans are “manipulative” and “controlling.” He echoed the sentiment that nobody is perfect, and that people should “live life and learn from it.”

The role models and idols of today appear almost out of nowhere thanks to social media. The medium also leads to a host of those celebrities being quite young.

One of them is Vinnie Hacker. The TikToker has over 5.7 million fans on the platform, as well as 2 million on Instagram. However, life in the limelight has come with its own set of problems. Hacker feels like he’s been forced to live to unreasonable standards put by his fans.

“Why do some people want to control my life. Telling me who I can and can’t talk to. Saying that you’ll only allow me to be with “this person.” Grow up. Don’t be manipulative,” he said in a TikTok.

“You preach against manipulation and then go on and make sure that they live a life that’s satisfying to you and not them. One mistake and a person’s career is over in this area of work.”

“In the eyes of the internet, people are subjected to be role models. And people say to not set unnecessary standards for others, but wouldn’t you think a life without mistakes and growth and perfection is more of a high standard than learning and growing?”

He also said that once you get thrown into the social media machine, you can’t really pull yourself out. Ultimately, these stars live and die by their fans’ judgment.

“Once it gets past that breaking point to where someone becomes relevant, the assumptions come and get dragged along with them. Privacy is invaded and people try to tell them how to live their lives. You end up not being your own person, but the internet’s person.”

These comments come as Hacker takes a break from Twitch streaming to focus on his personal life.

“Taking a break from streaming for quite a while. I don’t really feel to explain. A lot of personal stuff, on top of the unfortunate stuff that happens whilst streaming. Something always goes wrong. I might begin again, I might not,” he said.
