The YouTuber super fight between KSI and Logan Paul is drawing closer and much like professional bouts, mind games are being used in an attempt at getting an advantage.
The high profile boxing match will take place at the Manchester Arena on August 25, with tens of thousands expected in attendance and millions viewing online.
The heat between the two personalities has been present since day one, and both fighters have been trying to get in each other’s heads through a variety of tactics.
KSI has certainly been the more vocal, and during the second press conference in the UK his words eventually led to Logan leaving the stage after personal attacks on his girlfriend, Chloe Bennett and his Dad, Greg Paul.
Logan attempted to cause a rift in return by highlighting some of KSI’s older videos that featured him disrespecting women, but in return, KSI cut deep by highlighting more of Logan’s past mistakes.
Logan’s latest attempt at getting into KSI’s head involved Tweeting that he wanted to spar with KSI’s last opponent, Joe Weller, when he arrives in the UK to train.
KSI, his videographer Randolph and friend Miniminter discussed the situation in a video.
“KSI: On the real though, like, what’s he doing? Why is Joe sparring with Logan?
Randolph: It’s clout isn’t it?
Miniminter: For Joe it’s a very good move, if it’s filmed. It’s a video with Logan Paul.
Randolph: If it’s not filmed it’ll be a waste of time.
KSI: It is a waste of his time. But like Joe didn’t do anything, so how can Logan learn from someone who did nothing?”
Other comments on the fight included KSI joking that people should watch to see Chloe’s tears when Logan loses, and calling his family dysfunctional.
