KSI vs Logan Paul organizers are recruiting YouTubers for rematch

Organizers of the upcoming KSI vs Logan Paul rematch are hosting an open call for any YouTubers interested in boxing for the event – and a few creators have already thrown their name into the runnings.

Upload Agency founder Stuart Jones Tweeted out the announcement on November 7, asking for any YouTubers down to knock heads in the organization’s events for 2019.

“What YouTubers are still interested in boxing?” Jones posted. “Drop me a line if you are interested in fighting at one of our 2019 events, whether you’ve already got someone in mind or not. Planning starts soon. 🥊”

One of these events could very well be the KSI vs Logan Paul rematch, as Jones’s Upload Agency, a talent management firm based out of the UK, was responsible for managing the original bout in late August of 2018.

A few YouTubers have already expressed an interest in the event, including the likes of Australian YouTubers MrMuselk and Lachlan. However, no other major names have come forward to publically challenge an opponent – although plenty of users have tagged them in the Tweet’s replies.

With the rematch set to take place in summer of 2019, it makes sense that organizers are gearing up for the event, and even Jake Paul appears to be fiending for another bout in the ring. 

The YouTuber recently called out singer-songwriter Chris Brown, as well as American mixed martial artist Dillon Danis in hopes of a potential fight.

YouTube star Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson has given away another massive prize worth $10,000 to one random player in his latest Minecraft survival challenge.

Mr Beast is one of the biggest content creators on YouTube and is well known for his generosity, giving hundreds of thousands of dollars away to strangers in some of his past uploads.

During his latest video on his gaming channel, Mr Beast Gaming, the YouTuber revealed that he would be hosting a bizarre Minecraft challenge with a whopping $10,000 Subway gift card up for grabs.

Mr Beast has hosted plenty of unique challenge videos on his YouTube channel.

In one of his most ridiculous challenges yet, Mr Beast explained that this survival challenge would have plenty of interesting twists and turns before the winner was decided.

While it appeared to start off as a regular Minecraft ‘Hunger Games’ match, Mr Beast did not tell those participating that, instead of the border closing in on them from all sides, lava would begin to fill the map from down below.

This secret change seemed to catch plenty of players off-guard, after many of them immediately trekked down to the mines, in an attempt to gear up with diamond armor and equipment.

Mr Beast, who was spectating all of the action from above, would also spice things up by dropping rare pieces of equipment in front of a group to incentivize more fights.

In another twist, the YouTuber shared that the final player standing would not win anything, and that the full $10,000 Subway gift card would go to the person in 2nd place instead.

The final stage of the challenge was extremely close, with the last few players all falling into the lava at the exact same time. It was AltirixGaming though, the one who managed to claim the $10,000 prize.

Mr Beast has hosted other unique challenges on the sandbox title, such as his recent video where he gathered more players for an epic $50,000 Minecraft building competition.
