Things are heating up between YouTubers KSI and Logan Paul ahead of their boxing match on November 9, and now JJ ‘KSI‘ Olatunji has responded to Paul’s “honest” fight prediction on Twitter.

Just days prior to one of the biggest dates on the YouTube calendar, Logan Paul tweeted out, in great detail, what his “honest fight prediction” is, saying:

“JJ will try to outbox me & very quickly realize he can’t. Then, he’ll resort to bad habits, get wild like he did last year, but it won’t work because I’ll pick him apart… he’ll get frustrated, remember this tweet, and then I will knock him out.”

Just half an hour later, KSI responded with a simple explanation as to why he believes Paul’s prediction is inaccurate, referring back to the tiredness he showed in the first fight. saying: “Think you forgot about your terrible stamina.”

In the first fight, many believed that while Logan Paul was winning in the first couple of rounds, his stamina started to let him down as the match progressed and that is what allowed KSI to get some round wins in.

Needless to say, Paul has likely been addressing stamina as one of his main priorities in the lead-up to the rematch and will be hoping for this not to be an issue when the day comes.

KSI/YouTubeKSI and Logan Paul will be clashing for the second time after their first fight in August 2018.

The fight between KSI and Logan Paul takes place on November 9 in Los Angeles’ Staples Center, with both seeking revenge after their draw in August 2018.

The decision was somewhat divisive but made for a perfect reason for the two to face off again to find out who truly is the best boxer on YouTube.

Tottenham Hotspur player Dele Alli has roasted England international teammate Kieran Trippier over his gaming skills, bluntly calling him “really bad” at Fortnite.

Alli has recently become a global ambassador for Excel, one of the 10 League of Legends teams in the LEC and a powerhouse of UK esports, having made clear his love of gaming in recent years with his streams on Twitch.

Dele sat down to talk about his love of gaming with Excel, discussing FIFA, Fortnite, and some of the other top footballers he’s played with — but had a few less-than-savoury thoughts on his former Spurs teammate’s abilities.

After being asked who’s “not very good at gaming,” Trippier fell immediately into the firing line.

With a laugh at his friend’s misfortune, Dele revealed that the former Spurs man, unfortunately, falls into that category.

“Kieran Trippier was very late to gaming” Dele said, offering his former teammate somewhat of a lifeline. Before cracking up laughing again, the star added: “He jumped on it and he’s got a lot better but, at the start…”

Dele continued: “He joined Fortnite when we had all been playing for a while, and it was the first time he had played with a controller… so if you tell him to press X, he wouldn’t know which was X.”

Not content with letting his name be slandered in the gaming world, Kieran himself quickly responded with some laughing emojis, backing himself up by clarifying that he actually “wasn’t that bad,” though it doesn’t sound great for the full back.

Now, surely, fans will be desperate to see Dele and Kieran go head-to-head with one another to see if the latter is really as bad as he sounds.
