What can fans expect from the press conference?
While KSI and Logan Paul’s initial bout in August 2018 saw a drama-filled conference - complete with below-the-belt insults and actual riots in the streets - KSI hinted that this next conference could be more professional, as told in his announcement video on September 3.
“I think it’s gonna be more a battle of words,” KSI admitted. “I’m not gonna go with the whole, try and make fun of him, because I’ve already done that.”
Fans can also look forward to more fighters being introduced on the undercard - an undercard that Eddie Hearn claims will be “pros only.”
Will other YouTubers fight on the rematch undercard?
Despite Hearn’s claims, YouTuber Jake Paul pleaded with the promoter to let him fight on the undercard, claiming that he was being excluded from the “KSI vs Logan Paul narrative” despite having been part of the feud from the very beginning.
