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.

A Pokemon GO player’s livestream was interrupted when a mugger robbed them in front of viewers. The Trainer’s phone and car were stolen during the broadcast.

Pokemon GO took the world by storm in 2016, as players from all over ventured outside of their homes to catch their favorite monsters. The mobile title developed by Niantic brought the beloved Nintendo RPG to real life for millions.

Unfortunately, because the game takes place in the real world, unexpected things can happen – from fans assaulting each other over Gyms, to even murder. On October 8, a streamer’s broadcast quickly turned violent after they were mugged, much to the horror of their audience.

While there is no video of the incident, viewers tuning it could hear the audio of the terrifying moment. “Whoa dude, I’m live! I’m live! I don’t got nothing. I don’t have anything!” the 23-year old told the assailant.

The thief can be heard telling the Pokemon fan “The f**k wrong with you?!” after they tried to resist the theft. The GO stream then cut off after the criminal stole the player’s phone.

The thieves could be heard talking on the stream after multiple attempts to unlock the victim’s phone. “We got to get up through here really quick. Come on. We got his vape, his car keys, let’s get the whip, right,” they said.

It wasn’t long before the criminals realized that the phone was still broadcasting live. “He was going live? Why does he got so many goddamn portable chargers?” they said, before taking off with the stolen items.

According to Reddit, a police investigation is now underway. At the time of writing, the individuals have not yet been found or arrested. Based on the audio, it appears that the streamer was mugged by four individuals.

This story is sadly another example of how unpredictable the real world can actually be. And unfortunately, that means even players trying to enjoy Pokemon GO outside can sometimes get caught up in some scary situations.
