Despite the long-running feud between the two YouTubers, Olajida ‘KSI’ Olatunji has explained why he wants Logan Paul’s boxing match with Antonio Brown to go ahead – and why he wants his former rival to win.
Becoming much more than simply a YouTube event, some of the biggest celebrities in the world became invested in the second boxing match between the two, with the likes of Justin Bieber and Wiz Khalifa in attendance at the bout.
Now, the prospect of former NFL wide receiver Antonio Brown fighting Logan Paul has got everyone excited – including KSI, who has confirmed he will be supporting Logan.
In a video published on February 18, KSI reacted to Logan Paul’s diss track on AB – titled Going Broke – and despite picking out a few flaws, seemed pleasantly surprised by the track, saying it’s “got everything you need.”
He then went on to speak about the prospect of a fight between the two, saying “I think this fight should happen, man. For the culture.”
He elaborated on his point saying that he “wants this fight to happen.” He said: “Obviously, I think Logan’s going to win, and obviously, I’m always going to back Team YouTube,” before asking “who the f**k” ‘AB’ is.
KSI’s backing of Logan, despite their past and the beef between them, may come as somewhat of a surprise to fans, but his explanation makes sense – especially as he continues to champion being a YouTuber despite his success in the ring and in the music charts.
While a fight between Logan Paul and Antonio Brown has been rumored for a long time now, Logan has said it may not be happening after all. What does look more likely is KSI’s bout with Logan’s brother, Jake, who has teased that the fight might happen sooner rather than later.
Whatever happens there, it looks like there may no longer be any bad blood between KSI and Logan, though that won’t matter if Jake vs KSI ends up happening as both will have a serious degree of pride and respect on the line – not to mention the YouTube boxing world championship.
