It’s fight week: YouTube stars KSI and Logan Paul are gearing up to settle their grudge once and for all on November 9, which they discussed in a surprise press conference that took a surprising turn.

Without warning, both YouTubers announced a third press conference on November 7, which promoter Eddie Hearn explained was not made public due to restricted media-only access.

After letting their coaches speak (which, of course, resulted in a threat from Shannon Briggs that he would break Viddal Riley’s jaw), KSI and Logan Paul engaged in their usual banter – but Paul flipped the script in a humorous way.

KSI, TwitterKSI and Logan Paul geared up for a media-only press conference during fight week.

After bemoaning that no press were asking them boxing-related questions, KSI began to taunt his enemy, asking him, “How much do you know about boxing?” – to which Paul had an unusual answer.

“You don’t know anything when it comes to anything,” Paul retorted. “You strike me as a dumb person. Do you know what ‘decapitate’ means? …do simple arithmetic for me. What is 7 x 8?”

When KSI failed to reply right away, Paul answered the question for him, making a mockery of his silence to the crowd, who jeered at the Brit with cries of, “He can’t do math!”

“It’s 56,” Paul answered. “You f**king dumb***.”

That wasn’t the end of Paul’s quizzing, either: in fact, the stunt became a bit part throughout the press conference, with Paul interrupting prime talking points with basic math questions that KSI avoided answering.

A reporter later asked the Maverick mogul about his seemingly stellar math skills, to which he replied: “Unlike my opponent, I have a very, very big brain.”

Although these antics are par for the course for these two internet stars, things got heated during their post-conference staredown, as KSI lashed out after engaging in heated discussion with his enemy, who dubbed his slap like that of a “mosquito.”

The YouTubers are scheduled to touch gloves for the final time on November 9 in the Los Angeles Staples Center, bringing an end to one of the internet’s most fearsome grudges to date – but the jury is still out on KSI’s math skills.

Internet personalities Lexi Rivera and Ben Azelart have explained why they broke up after three years together, in an emotional video posted to YouTube.

Lexi Rivera is known in association with her brother Brent who is one of TikTok’s biggest creators with 35 million followers, while Lexi herself has more than 14 million followers on the app. The siblings also have a combined 19.5 million subscribers on YouTube.

Ben Azelart is also heavily associated with the siblings and has himself built up a huge following of 11 million followers on TikTok. But fans were devastated to find out this week that the duo were no longer a couple.

Lexi and Ben posted a video explaining why, saying that they thought they owed their fans the truth. Lexi said: “I have so much respect for Ben and he’s like literally one of the best people I’ve ever met in my entire life.” Ben responded, “I mean the same goes for me, Lexi is one of the nicest, sweetest, funniest people I’ve ever met.”

Addressing their viewers, Lexi explained why it took so long for them to officially break the news: “I know that it’s been super confusing for you guys and that is because it’s been just as confusing for us we’ve been very just on and off again and I don’t think we were really sure what we wanted to do until now.

“Having a relationship is one thing, but having a relationship online is a completely different story and it was very confusing for us. Honestly, it wasn’t easy being young like we were 15 and 16.

Lexi went on to say that the relationship no longer made them both happy. “We both had so much fun doing it, but I think as years went on it just became a little too complicated…I think what was hard is we want to make you guys happy as well as make ourselves happy.

“Ultimately we just didn’t do both and I think what’s most important was focusing on ourselves for now.”

Lexi and Ben finished by saying that they’re not parting ways forever and that they both felt it was just the wrong time to be together.
