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”
