YouTube stars KSI and Logan Paul are set to throw down in their highly-anticipated boxing rematch on November 9, but news of an official undercard for the fight has been up in the air – until now.

While the YouTubers’ initial bout in August 2018 featured a slew of internet stars on its undercard – including the infamous fight between Deji and Jake Paul – this time, the pair are looking to go pro in a major way.

British boxing promoter Eddie Hearn explained that the YouTubers’ undercard won’t feature any other social media celebrities during an interview with Sky Sports Boxing on September 4, turning popular speculation for the fight on its head.

Instead, Hearn claimed that the bout is going all-pro aside from the main event, featuring professional boxers as a means to help bring a fresh audience to the historic sport.

“On the undercard, we want world-championship boxing,” Hearn explained. “We don’t want other YouTubers and celebrities – no, this is a chance for boxing to bring in new fans, and if we’re gonna bring them in, we need to show them the greatness of our sport.”

Hearn’s statement was met with some contention, with the likes of Drama Alert’s KEEMSTAR arguing that it was “bullshit” not to feature other YouTubers on a YouTuber rematch – but this could be good news for the Paul brothers, considering they each expressed hopes of going pro after last pay-per-view fight last year.

However, this development doesn’t come as a massive surprise, considering the news of pro boxer Billy Joe Saunders defending his world super middleweight title on the undercard per reports from the Independent on August 31.

Despite this potential leg up for KSI and Logan Paul, other big-name YouTubers vying for a spot on the undercard will have to sit this one out – including the likes of Fouseytube and Deji, whose recent beef seemed promising for the November rematch.

KSI vs Logan Paul 2 will throw down in the Los Angeles Staples Center, with the event streaming for American audiences on “DAZN” – although news of other pros on the card has yet to be revealed.

Dixie D’Amelio’s fans think her latest song, ‘One Whole Day,’ is a diss track aimed at her ex-boyfriend, Griffin Johnson, but she claimed it isn’t and explained what it’s really about.

Dixie D’Amelio rocked the world with the release of her latest song, ‘One Whole Day.’ The lyrics tell how she had a falling out with a boyfriend but was only sad for one whole day and shed a single tear.

Her fans assume the song is about her break up with Griffin Johnson and think it’s her way of throwing him some shade. However, Dixie D’Amelio recently answered some questions about the song on YouTube, and she explained that it’s not a diss track.

Dixie D’Amelio collaborated with Wiz Khalifa to produce her latest song, ‘One Whole Day.’

“Being sad is not what the song is about,” she said, without mentioning Griffin Johnson’s name. “The song is basically about how I am only going to be sad for one day from a breakup.”

“When you are treated in a way where you’re not number one or a number one priority or shown true care and love and affection more than anyone else, there’s no point in being upset about it for more than one day,” she added.

It’s reasonable to assume this might have been an issue in Dixie D’Amelio’s relationship with Griffin Johnson. Either way, the point is, it’s more about the personal realization she had rather than the break-up itself.

Dixie D’Amelio and Griffin Johnson were together for a while, but things didn’t work out.

“The song does mean a lot to me because I’ve spent a lot of my life being upset about things for too long,” she said. “If a person… cannot treat me with respect… then I don’t want them in my life, and I will not be upset about it for more than one whole day.”

“That’s kind of my idea of the song. It’s not a diss in any way. It’s… showing self-love… to myself,” she added. “It’s important to love yourself. It’s important to know you’re worth, so that’s… what it’s all about.”

Segment begins at 1:30.

‘One Whole Day’ might refer to some of the experiences and feelings Dixie D’Amelio had during her break-up with Griffin Johnson, but it’s not intended to be a diss track in any way, shape, or form.

The song’s meaning runs much deeper than that. It’s about feeling a sense of self-love and self-worth during a break-up, no matter how sad it can be in the short-term.
