YouTube stars KSI and Logan Paul finally settled their long-standing grudge in the boxing ring on November 9. However, that isn’t stopping KSI from exposing some of the hilarious moments that went down beforehand.

In an October episode of his imPaulsive podcast, Logan Paul revealed a few messages he’d sent to his rival via Instagram, which included a few light-hearted voice memos referencing a “cake.”


However, KSI never responded, leading Paul to feel like a “side hoe” who’d been left on read in spite of his efforts to get a reaction out of his opponent.

Unfortunately for Paul, KSI has finally reacted to these DMs — a full month after their bout, making “The Maverick’s” attempt at taunting his rival null and void.

In fact, KSI revealed even more DMs that Paul had sent than the ones he showed on his podcast, which included some more direct hints at his proposed victory.

KSI and Logan Paul threw down in the boxing ring on November 9, with KSI emerging the victor by split-decision.

“Hey bro, I admire your confidence,” one message said. “I’m hella impressed. I just was wondering if you had picked someone out to catch your head after I decapitate you in the first round.”


Needless to say, Paul’s joking threat sent KSI into a fit of laughter, who noted that, considering his loss by split-decision, rendered the message less of a taunt and more of a joke.

“These are so much more funny now!” KSI roared. “‘First round decapitation. Hit me with a few shots.’ Bro, you ain’t — you didn’t do sh**!”

That’s not all: Paul had even sent KSI a drawing of himself standing over his opponent in the ring, captioned, “Visualize it.” The image is an artistic impression of the boxers by isidros_artwork.

“He kept showing this to me,” KSI said of the picture. “On his phone, when we were talking to the commission a day before the fight. When the commission was talking to both of us, he just kept showing me this. He wasn’t even listening to what the commission were saying.”

KSI’s humorous exposure of Logan’s Instagram messages follows the denial of the Maverick’s appeal to the commission, who struck down his efforts to reverse a two-point penalty he’d received in the fourth round.

Now, KSI reigns as the undisputed champ of their bout — and he’s not afraid of rubbing it in, considering his reactions to Paul’s DMs.


Joe Rogan forced to cancel Kanye West podcast

Joe Rogan has been forced to cancel the next week of guests lined up for his podcast, including superstar Kanye West, after one of the host’s staff member returned a positive test result meaning the team must now isolate.

The Joe Rogan Experience is one of the most popular podcasts in the world listened to by millions of people each week, but the next slate of episodes has hit a major snag.


On Oct. 19, Rogan announced on Instagram that the show would be cancelling all the podcasts for the upcoming week after Jamie Vernon, the producer of the show, tested positive forcing the rest of the cast to self-isolate.

“Young Jamie Vernon tested positive today. I tested negative, the rest of the staff tested negative, but Jamie tested positive,” Rogan revealed in the video. “He thought he had a sinus infection or allergies. The episodes that aired last week we had previously recorded so I hadn’t seen Jamie in about nine days.”


Despite testing positive the former Fear-Factor host assured everyone his tech wizard was on the mend, but added he and the rest of his staff would be cancelling shows for safety reasons for the next week.

“So, we cancelled all the shows. We’re happy he has a mild case, but we cancelled all the shows. I’m keeping away from everybody and testing myself and the staff everyday until we’re in the clear, there’s nothing we can do,” the podcaster added. “I won’t know when we’ll do them [podcasts] again until we get a clear from the doctor. I think it’s ten days and three negative test results in a row.”

Sadly, this means fans will miss out on the highly-anticipated show featuring Kanye West, who was scheduled as a guest for the Friday, October 23 program.


Rogan didn’t completely rule out having the podcast in some form or another though, adding that he was looking into doing shows remotely or some shows with a substitute producer (which he wasn’t too keen on).

After offering apologies to all of the guests and fans affected by the news, the host summed it up as a “f***ed up situation,” but it will be interesting to see how they actually go about producing the show, and if they can still get Yeezy on.
