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.

YouTube: Logan Paul
Paul and Brown have already come face-to-face in anticipation of a fight.

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.

Tyler1 amazes Smash Ultimate pros after battling MkLeo on Twitch

Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp faced off against the number one Smash Ultimate player, Leonardo ‘MkLeo’ López Pérez, in what was meant to be a fun T1 crossover. Instead, the League challenger got to work, trash talking and smashing about the best in the world.

Tyler1 doesn’t do anything by halves. He’s loud, and has the personality to match. He revs up his Twitch stream to hundreds of thousands of adoring fans daily, who are there not for the gameplay, but for the Tyler1 ride.

Those who caught the streamer’s November 27 cast were certainly in for a ride. The League of Legends star collided with Smash Ultimate’s biggest name, MkLeo.

It makes sense a crossover between the two was inevitable ⁠— with both being part of prestigious organization T1 ⁠— but the action exceeded everyone’s expectations. Of course, Tyler1 got trounced by MkLeo. However, that doesn’t mean he wasn’t able to get a stock or two, and the League streamer let the Smash pro know about it.

“Leo, I don’t think you’re that good dude. How bad are Smash players if I almost f**king beat you,” Tyler1 said, while struggling to get more than half a stock on average every game.

MkLeo didn’t take it lying down though. “You’re so bad that you’re really good at the same time,” he hit back with.

Tyler1 kept frying the big fish though. Next on his stop of trash talk was Leffen. “Leffen is a scrawny p*ssy a** b*tch. Kid sucks at f**king Smash. Rages at a children’s game, f**king loser,” he said, which had MkLeo in stitches. He had enough slaptalk for Samsora and other pros too.

Fans were also treated to some iconic Tyler1 reactions, and there was none bigger than the streamer’s bewilderment at Arsene, Joker’s Persona. “What the hell is that? Did you just enter a cheat code, bud? Are you cheating?”

After it was all said and done though, the crossover did what it intended to do. It united the League of Legends and Smash communities, and entertained everyone in the crossover that no one really wanted, but they definitely enjoyed.

“Playing and chilling with [Tyler1] really made me realize what it is to be a streamer and a gamer. Loved his personality and him as a person, looking forward to more collaborations like these,” MkLeo said on Twitter.

“T1 playing smash with Leo was actually so godlike. Makes me actually want to play league more and see if I can get to further than Masters,” Samsora also added on Twitter.

Tyler1 kept his side of the story nice and quaint though: “It was pretty fun.”
