Details about the boxing rematch between KSI and Logan Paul have been released and it looks like the YouTubers will be making their pro boxing debut at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

The pair last squared off in a white-collar amateur boxing match on August 25 at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England.

This time around though, the matchup is headed across the pond to the states where the headgear will be coming off and the two will fight for real in a pro match.

When is the KSI vs Logan Paul rematch?

Matchroom Boxing announced via Twitter that the highly-anticipated KSI Logan Paul rematch will happen on November 9 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

The date and venue were previously revealed on August 14, but now we have more details about when it is and how to watch the event.

How do we watch the fight?

The rematch between the two YouTube stars will, surprisingly enough, not be available on YouTube. Instead, the card will be available for Pay Per View on subscription video streaming service DAZN.

Both Paul and KSI complained about the high number of pirated streams that broadcast their fight for free to viewers on Twitch and YouTube, so switching to a PPV model could be an attempt to cut down on stream piracy.

Tickets for the bout become available for pre-sale on September 10, with the general sale beginning September 14.

The trash talk between Paul and KSI hasn’t stopped

In the year between the two matchups, neither KSI or Paul have stopped talking smack to each other, which makes the rematch a chance to settle things (again).

KSI even questioned if the rematch would happen in 2019 at all on Twitter back in June, accusing Paul of trying to dodge out on the next fight.

What else is new this time around?

The KSI v. Logan Paul rematch is an official pro card, which means the headgear is coming off so all the “protection” the two will have are mouth-guards and gloves.

Obviously this greatly increases the chances of one of the fighters getting knocked out, which means we could actually see a winner this time around instead of just another draw.

With no headgear and an official pro card, the KSI vs. Logan Paul rematch could see both fighters get after it harder then they did before for the win –  and also those sweet, sweet, bragging rights.

Daequan’s first tweet after 6-month hiatus sparks hope for Twitch return

Daequan ‘Daequan’ Loco has broken his six-month social media silence in time for Thanksgiving. While the tweet was short and sweet, it has given fans of the former TSM Fortnite star hope for a potential return to Twitch.

Daequan has practically disappeared from the public eye in 2020. He vowed that he’d try to return to Twitch by January 2020 after taking time off to focus on his health, but hasn’t made an appearance on the platform since December 2019.

On top of that, he’s gone quiet on socials, not posting anything since March. While he has moved in with long-time friend and former duo Hamlinz in the meantime, there wasn’t any indication he was coming back to streaming.

However, Daequan has finally broken his silence to give thanks to his fans on Thanksgiving, and tell everyone that he is getting along just fine.

“Feeling better than I have in years. Always thankful,” the short message red, with a selfie of the streamer.

The tweet has gone viral, with over 100,000 fans liking the tweet, and many of his contemporaries sending him messages of support, including TimtheTatman, NICKMERCS, and Classify.

Daequan’s eight-word return has also managed to spark hope in his fanbase of a potential return to streaming. No matter whether it’s Fortnite, or a new game that’s come out in his absence like Valorant, Daequan’s fans are itching to see him back on the platform.

There is potential for a return. Hamlinz has been a bit more active on social media, and Tfue even tried to get him to turn on the stream ⁠— even if just for a day.

No matter what though, Daequan is taking things at his own pace. He’s still on that journey to better health, and will return in his own time when he believes it’s right.

Fans of Daequan will be hoping it’s not another six months until we hear from the TSM Fortnite star again, but only time will tell if he actually commits to returning to streaming.
