YouTube stars KSI and Logan Paul met for a surprise press conference on November 7 to bandy words one last time before their upcoming rematch – but some of their trash-talk hit a sore spot for boxing fans.

In the thick of the fray – during which Logan Paul mocked his opponent’s intelligence with a surprise math quiz – KSI made a comment that rubbed promoter Eddie Hearn the wrong way.

Specifically, KSI claimed that he would “end” Logan Paul’s life, going on to claim that Paul was “going to fucking die. You best believe.”

Hearn spoke out on KSI’s comments in an interview following the conference, where he admitted to being annoyed by his apparent threat.

“They don’t know enough about boxing,” Hearn admitted. “They don’t really respect the game enough to think about what they’re saying. I mean, fighters say that kind of stuff all the time. No one ever means it, but I didn’t like that when it was said multiple times.”

KSI has since taken to Twitter to clarify his statements, explaining that he merely meant that he would “end” his enemy’s career – not his life.

“… I don’t intend to kill Logan physically tomorrow,” KSI wrote in a Tweet on the morning of November 8. “I only intend to kill his YouTube career and spirit. After this fight, I still want Logan to be alive and well.”

KSI’s comments follow a string of recent deaths for boxers, with the likes of 28-year-old Maxim Dadashey, 23-year-old Hugo Santillan, and, most recently, 27-year-old Patrick Day passing away due to the sport.

With at least three professional boxers falling in the span of a single year, it makes sense that KSI’s insult toward Logan Paul would come across as especially blasphemous in the eyes of the boxing community – although it doesn’t appear that he meant the threat with any actual malice.

Patrick Day, Instagram27-year-old New York Golden Gloves champion Patrick Day passed away after spending four days in a coma, following his fight with opponent Charles Conwell.

Paul notably made similar comments during their UK press conference on October 7, claiming that, “I might actually kill you, man,” in response to KSI’s five alleged abortions.

The internet stars will touch gloves in the Los Angeles Staples Center on November 9 on an all-pro undercard, finally sealing one of YouTube’s greatest rivalries to date.


Sykkuno reveals new plans after leaving OfflineTV house

Sykkuno opened up about leaving the OfflineTV house and revealed he plans to move back in with family, but will stick around the Los Angeles area.

Sykkuno has only been a confirmed member of the OfflineTV house since August, but he’s already exploded in popularity. He deserves all the credit, though, since his content and input in collaborated streams has been thoroughly enjoyable.

It’s been a blast having him on board. However, Sykkuno ultimately decided not to stick around, and in one of his latest streams, he shared some details on what he’s planning to do next.

Sykkuno Leaving OfflineTV
Sykkuno has been streaming for a while, but he’s become immensely more popular in recent weeks.

“As most of you guys probably know, [I’m] moving soon,” he said. “So, I’m probably not going to be streaming for a couple of days after today obviously because there’s a lot of moving stuff going on.”

Initially, Sykkuno is planning to move back in with his family, but then he’d evaluate his options and decide what to do next. “I’m probably moving home for a bit, and then we’ll figure it out after that,” he said.

Sykkuno also said he would “probably” stay in Los Angeles in the long run but isn’t planning to buy a house. “That’s a little too expensive for me,” he said. “I don’t think that’s quite happening.”

Sykkuno Leaving OfflineTV
Sykkuno has been streaming Among Us on Twitch along with other popular streamers.

He described the move as a “bit of a hassle” but seemed excited about the future. He’s also adamant about not wanting to live alone. “I don’t want to live alone… I feel like it’s tough,” he said.

This hilariously opened the door for one fan to try and make an ambitious deal. “Pay for my rent, and I’ll live with you,” wrote the fan.

Sykkuno pondered for a moment and then jokingly pitched a counter-offer. “If you pay for my rent, I’ll there too, I suppose,” he said, laughing. “Thank you for the offer.”

Sykkuno didn’t mention anything else beyond that. However, if his meteoric rise continues to grow, the opportunities will be endless.

It comes after other OfflineTV members Scarra and Toast said that the OffliveTV house could be disbanding shortly.

“We can’t have a house that each of us have wives, husbands, our kids, and our pets living in once place,” Toast said in a recent stream.

It seems like Sykkuno’s fans will have his back no matter what he decides though. They’ve become a large and dedicated community in their own right.
