Popular YouTuber Olajide ‘KSI‘ Olatunji has revealed the person that he’s eying for his next big boxing match, and his choice could be seen as a surprising one. 

The content creator is set to step into the ring with Logan Paul on November 6, with their match being the headline fight on a highly anticipated card at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles, California. 

Of course, this isn’t the first time that the pair have faced off inside the squared circle, after their first bout back in August 2018 ended up a draw. While KSI has that fight to think about first and appears to be very much focused on his opponent, he’s also revealed what could come after. 

KSI, InstagramKSI had been doing a lot of media ahead of the big match in November.

The 26-year-old took part in an interview with JD Sports on October 9, where he briefly explained some of the preparation for the fight, how he’s feeling about his opponent and interestingly, who could be involved in his next match. 

Talking about Logan Paul, he said: “We’re not friends. I don’t care about him. I’m sure he doesn’t care about me and ultimately we both want knockouts.

“We both want to get the glory because after this it’s not a paycheck, if anything it’s being able to release content and push your career after this fight, do more fights, and you have bragging rights on YouTube for so long.” 

After this one is all said and done, though, KSI admits that he would like to take on Jake Paul, who is, of course, Logan’s younger brother. 

That answer in particular will stir up some interest in both fanbases as the two have teased a match repeatedly in the past, with some genuine animosity between them – which KSI also touched on. 

“Who is next? I’d love to have Jake. I’d love to have Jake. I’d love to break his little skull. I despise him man. I hate him. I actually hate him more than Logan. Yeah, Jake would make sense.” 

Jake Paul YouTubeJake Paul is the guy KSI would like to face after Logan.

The YouTuber also never ruled out facing some other professional boxers following the match with Logan, and even admitted that the opportunity to join WWE to do some wrestling could interest him in the future. 

Whether or not that transpires remains to be seen, but a number of interesting mainstream figures have been appearing in WWE programming during the course of 2019 – including British boxer Tyson Fury, former two-time UFC Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez and more. 

Opportunities such as that, though, will be nowhere near his top priority coming into this fight, with the ultimate goal of defeating Logan clearly on show during the pre-match buildup. 


James Charles sparks heated beef with rapper Asian Doll over makeup artist fees

YouTube star and makeup mogul James Charles has started some unexpected beef with rapper Asian Doll after she made a divisive tweet over the price some makeup artists charge for their work.

James Charles is known for getting into the occasional Twitter spat with high-profile celebrities; in August 2020, the YouTuber called out music artist Alicia Keys for her then-unreleased skincare line, which he mistakenly interpreted as another celebrity cash-grab in the makeup biz. (This was not the case.)

Now, it seems that Charles has struck up a feud with none other than Dallas-based rapper Asian Doll — the first female rapper to be signed to Gucci Mane’s very own record label, 1017 Eskimo Records.

It all started over a post Asian Doll made on January 15, where she took issue with makeup artists charging hefty fees for their services.

“If you charge over $150 to do a face of makeup, you can go to hell, respectfully,” she wrote.

Charles was quick to clap back: “What a stupid tweet. One foundation can cost $50, artists have to buy EVERY SHADE for their kit, & thats just the first step…Either pay an artist’s rate for their time & skill, do it yourself, OR get it done at a counter and risk looking busted.”

It seems that Charles’ reply has sparked an avalanche of backlash against him from Asian Doll’s fans, with many accusing him of overstepping his bounds.

Charles has apparently messed with the wrong rapper, as Asian Doll was also quick to fire shots at the beauty guru in a series of additional tweets.

“What a dumb a** to be in my business replying to something that has absolutely nothing to do with you. I’m having a debate about HOOD PRICES baby, stay over there in HOLLYWOOD where they having you looking GHOST,” she wrote — most likely referring to the infamous photo of James Charles wearing foundation several shades lighter than his natural skin tone.

“Literally stop robbing the poor,” the rapper added in a now-deleted reply. “All I’m saying is people shouldn’t have to pay over $150 for a face, DATS IT!”

It seems that Asian Doll’s post has stirred up quite the debate regarding the value and pricing of makeup artists’ time and work in her comments section — but James’ involvement in the conversation has sparked another kind of conversation, altogether.
