KSI & Logan Paul confirmed to fight in “Prime card” double main event
YouTube stars KSI and Logan Paul have been confirmed to fight in a double main event influencer-boxing extravaganza after Misfits Boxing teased the card at its Series 008 event.
On July 22, influencers gathered together to duke it out on the Misfts x DAZN Series 008 boxing event in Nashville, Tennessee.
Just before the final fight of the night, Misfits president Mams Taylor appeared on stage to tease the next installment in the Misfits x DAZN influencer-boxing showdown – and fans were convinced that it was teasing fights including YouTubers KSI and Logan Paul.
Now, it appears that those rumors have been confirmed, as KSI himself has just revealed that the next PRIME Card will feature both himself and Logan Paul.
KSI confirms he & Logan Paul will feature on PRIME boxing card
Only July 28, KSI took to Twitter/X to announce that both he and Logan will be taking separate fights on the next Misfits x DAZN event, which he dubbed the “PRIME” card.
“The PRIME card is here!” KSI wrote. “We will both fight on the same night for the first time since our rematch in 2019, live on DAZN PPV. Opponents will be announced soon.”
Judging by the teaser that was shown at Series 008, fans think that Logan Paul may face off with mixed martial artist Dillon Danis, who has had a feud with both the Paul brothers and KSI for years, now.

Fans also speculated that KSI would take on Tommy Fury, who he’s been itching to fight for months now as the British boxer seemingly dodged signing an official contract with him – and on July 30, KSI confirmed this rumor to be true.
“[On] October 14, I’m doing what Jake Paul couldn’t and beating Tommy Fury on the biggest night in crossover boxing history,” he wrote on X.
Logan Paul confirms bout against Dillon Danis on Oct 14
Fans have speculated that Logan Paul would go up against Dillon Danis during the match, and on August 8, 2023, it was revealed to be true.
“OCTOBER 14 I return to boxing after fighting Floyd Mayweather over 2 years ago. I doubt this little parasite will show up but if he does I’m going to erase him from existence,” he said.
“The PRIME Card — Oct 14 in Manchester, live on DAZN PPV!”
This highly-anticipated event will take place on October 14 at the AO Arena in Manchester, UK.
This bout is a pretty big deal for both KSI and Logan Paul, who have put their infamous rivalry to bed to become business partners with their PRIME Hydration drink line. The two haven’t appeared in a boxing ring together since their rematch in 2019, marking another historic moment for the pair.
