YouTuber Logan Paul’s controversial Flat Earth ‘mockumentary’ has come and gone – but his next big project could take his content in a completely different direction.

Russian entertainment outlet Generation Iron announced that Paul would be participating in the ‘Battle on the Volga,’ which includes a ‘slap battle’ between the YouTuber and two of Russia’s greatest slap-fighting champions.

Paul uploaded a video of himself training for his upcoming fight on May 14, which showed the YouTuber repeatedly slapping a dummy made of pool noodles across from his trainer.

Paul’s video didn’t go unnoticed by his competition; Russian slap champion Vasily ‘Dumpling’ Pelmen uploaded his own video in response to Paul, which showed the champ slapping away a series of training dummies in front of a boxing ring.

.

While it might seem silly from the outside, ‘Dumpling’ isn’t Russia’s “slap champion” for no reason – the 370 lb champ took the 2019 Male Slapping Championship in an unquestionable, landslide victory at the Siberian Power Show, proving a formidable opponent compared to Paul’s 187 lb frame.

Dmitry Kotov, VICELogan Paul is set to throw down with 370 pound Russian slap champion ‘Dumpling’ on May 24 – and fans aren’t too enthused about the YouTuber’s chances.

This isn’t the first “training footage” Paul has uploaded ahead of his slap battle, either; the YouTuber took a sound smack across the face from fellow YouTuber Vitaly Zdorovetskiy during Jake Paul’s massive house party on May 14, claiming that he was “ready for Russia” upon recovering from the blow.

Paul’s training comes just a week ahead of the ‘Battle on the Volga,’ which takes place from May 24 – 27 – giving him precious little time to prepare for the event.

KSI vs Logan Paul – the rematch

Although many fans are doubting Paul’s luck against ‘Dumpling,’ he may yet stand a decent chance against his competitor – the YouTuber has been training for his upcoming boxing match against fellow content creator KSI for some time, claiming that he is “collecting skulls this winter” in an Instagram post of his training footage for the match.

KSI and Logan Paul are set to throw down in November 2019, after rumors that their initial contract had the rematch penned for February.

KSI himself claimed that Paul’s team was to blame for the event’s mishandling, but clarified that things would be put into motion during a January video on the topic.

Of course, boxing and slapping are two totally different disciplines – and Paul’s slapping prowess has yet to be truly tested.

Twitch streamer xQc had the best response after rapper Logic declined his invitation to a chess match live on stream, having mistakenly thought him to be the winner of the PogsChamps chess tournament.

Felix Lengyel a.k.a. xQc has been absolutely crushing Twitch stats this year, proving to be the most popular, and the highest-earning, streamer of 2020.

Despite his success, one area where he is most certainly lacking is chess skills – look no further than his 6-move loss to critikalMoist during the first PogChamps tournament as evidence of that.

In bizarre circumstances though, xQc’s chess skills earned him an unexpected roast from rapper Logic, live on stream, sparking a hilarious interaction between the streamers.

xQc has become arguably the biggest name on Twitch in 2020.

xQc has been trying his hand at online chess recently, and has played with multiple different people online. Keen to see if Logic was willing to participate in a game, Lengyel sent him an invite, and hopped over to his stream to watch the reaction.

But, the reaction wasn’t quite what he expected. “F**k that dude, man. xQc wants to play with me, but he was Pog champion wasn’t he? F**k that dude, man. F**k xQc,” Logic joked.

Logic had got his wires a little crossed, as Felix actually placed last in Chess.com’s PogsChamps tournament back in June, and again in August. It’s safe to say xQc was bewildered, unsure of what caused the seemingly unprompted roast.

Though xQc had a hilarious comeback of his own, calling him a “strawberry looking a** man,” going on to say “what does he mean? What did I do?”

In the background, Logic continues with “he’s about to smack me up man,” as Felix looks on completely baffled as to how he’d been confused for an unrivaled chess player.

It’s clear the jokes were all in good fun, as Logic quickly asked his team to follow xQc on Twitter so the pair could DM.

Fans were loving the hilarious exchange between Felix and Logic, with one of the clips uploaded to YouTube gaining over 400,000 views in only a couple of days.
