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.

Small Warzone streamer gets 3 million Twitch followers overnight

A Warzone streamer has been thrust into the top 30 of most followed Twitch streamers after receiving a huge, and unusual, boost in one go. 

Building up a following and community on Twitch can, obviously, be a slog if you’re starting from scratch. Streamers can stream for weeks and months on end without even having their talents recognized and blow up in popularity like others. 

Some others can take shortcuts, be it because they have a following on another platform, or because they decide to inflate it with fake accounts. 

This has happened before, with casino accounts smashing records in a bid to advertise their platform, while smaller streamers have been hit with huge boosts in an attempt to troll them for one reason or another.

NeonSniperPanda has become the fastest growing streamer for October.

Warzone streamer NeonSniperPanda has become the newest content creator to be struck by these boosts, as his channel has rocketed into the top 30 of most-followed Twitch streamers. 

The streamer, who had previously built up a modest following of nearly 10,500, received the unusual boost in early October, jumping up to over 3.3 million followers. 

As previously mentioned, this figure puts him up there with some of Twitch’s biggest names like Fortnite World Cup champion Bugha and Spanish content creator Ibai, though, NeonSniperPanda hasn’t inflated the figures himself.

NeonSniperPanda jumped up over 3.3 million followers on Twitch.

The Warzone streamer has called on Twitch a number of times to help him out, noting that he’d been botted out of the blue and given the ridiculous amount of followers.

“Yo quick reminder, I was follow botted 3.3 million and there’s no way to delete them @TwitchSupport @Twitch can you help me out bro bro,” he tweeted. 

Previously, the aileybeanssa channel had been hit with a similar botting, as they rose up to have over 4.64 million Twitch followers in September. However, those figures have since been removed. 

Given that Twitch has been able to scrub channels of botted followers, they should be able to do the same for NeonSniperPanda, but it remains to be seen as and when they might do so.
