There has been another twist in the tale of the Logan Paul vs KSI YouTube boxing fight, after it was announced one of them would be sparring with Joe Weller.
The super fight between two of the biggest personalities on YouTube is set to be a blockbuster, with thousands in attendance at Manchester Arena and millions expected to watch online, both legally via the pay-per-view link, and no doubt plenty via illegal streams.
Preparation for the big fight has seen both KSI and Logan Paul teaming up with various high profile boxers, including both sets of fighters working out with trainers at the Mayweather Gym in Las Vegas.
As you’d expect there has been plenty of mind games played between the two opponents, and Logan Paul played a brand new card on August 9th when he suggested he should spar with Joe Weller when he arrives in England.
Joe Weller was KSI’s first opponent back in February, and despite KSI going in as the underdog, he triumphed in a third round knockout that left everyone stunned.
Joe admitted following the fight that he didn’t put into action anything he had practiced and was more of a punching bag than opponent.
Regardless of that outcome, Joe is the only person to have fought KSI in that environment, and Logan Paul looks set to try and learn about his experience with the British fighter in the ring.
Will sparring help out Logan heading into the fight? Just a couple of weeks ahead of the bout and KSI is still considered the favorite according to bookmakers.
