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.

TikTok star Dixie D’Amelio has finally dropped her long-awaited music video with rapper Wiz Khalifa, which initially sparked so much controversy among fans that she deleted a teaser for the tune two days prior to its release.

Dixie D’Amelio is more than TikTok royalty; alongside her impressive 45 followers on the viral video app, Dixie has also signed a major record deal with Hitco, releasing her own original music.

While her single ‘Be Happy’ was met with general acclaim among her fans, her subsequent song ‘One Whole Day’ was instantly met with vitriol among TikTok users, with many criticizing the star for her lyrics and singing ability.

In fact, the hate got so bad that D’Amelio promptly deleted her teaser for the song two days before its official release, sparking conversation — once again — about the brutal nature of TikTok’s userbase.

“I’m just trying to have fun,” Dixie said of the fiasco. “I love music and photoshoots. But I’m losing passion for everything now.”

“I literally can’t be excited about ANYTHING,” she added.

However, it looks like the trolls couldn’t stop her from releasing the official song on December 4, the music video for which already has 494,000 views at the time of writing — and we have to admit, it’s a certified bop! (Don’t blame us if it gets stuck in your ears for the next week, though.)

Dixie appears to have gotten over the backlash, too; she even uploaded satirical TikTok where she feigned crying as a duet to a user who mocked those currently criticizing the song.

Dixie likewise hit out at critics in a paparazzi interview on December 3, giving haters a good piece of her mind regarding the shocking amount of backlash she received.

“Everyone judges a song over the first five seconds,” the TikToker exclaimed. “I get it, but give constructive criticism. Don’t tell me to f**king go to therapy for a song you don’t like!”

(Dixie’s statement starts at 1:36)

However, it seems that reviews for ‘One Whole Day’ are still mixed — but it doesn’t look like Dixie is letting the trolls bring her down, anymore. You go girl!
