YouTube stars KSI and Logan Paul are set to throw down in the net’s most buzzed-about boxing rematch on November 9. Paul isn’t passing up any opportunities to get in his opponent’s head before they touch gloves.

Paul revealed that he’s been sending his rival both humorous and provoking private messages via Instagram, as told during an October 28 episode of his “imPaulsive” podcast.

According to the Maverick mogul, he isn’t interested in anything but defeating his rival. He’s not afraid to let KSI know about his plans, although it doesn’t look like KSI is interested in returning the banter.

“I’m just so locked in,” Paul admitted. “I don’t care about parties. I really don’t care about anything except crushing this kid’s skull. And honestly, I’m letting him know that on Instagram direct messages. I’m reaching out to KSI directly, and keeps leaving me on ‘Seen.’”

However, KSI’s refusal to respond comes as little surprise, considering the content of Logan’s messages – which include everything from wanting to send KSI an Edible Arrangement to encouraging him to enjoy his last “20 days of his life” at a Vegas casino.

“I said, ‘What’s your addy? I want to send you an edible arrangement,’” Paul read. “…I want you, from the bottom of my heart, to enjoy these next 19-20 days of your life. Go to a casino in Vegas, go gamble, bake that cake, bro. Good luck, my guy!”

Rather than replying to Logan’s DMs, KSI has instead opted to release a fifteen-minute-long documentary covering his training regimen in Las Vegas, Nevada.

In his documentary, KSI claimed that their August 2018 bout gave Logan a chance at redeeming his career in wake of his “Suicide Forest” debacle – and that their upcoming bout is his “one last chance” at glory.

The KSI vs Logan Paul rematch is scheduled for November 9 at the Los Angeles Staples Center, and will feature an all-pro undercard with one other YouTube fight ahead of the main event.

Tyler1 amazes Smash Ultimate pros after battling MkLeo on Twitch

Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp faced off against the number one Smash Ultimate player, Leonardo ‘MkLeo’ López Pérez, in what was meant to be a fun T1 crossover. Instead, the League challenger got to work, trash talking and smashing about the best in the world.

Tyler1 doesn’t do anything by halves. He’s loud, and has the personality to match. He revs up his Twitch stream to hundreds of thousands of adoring fans daily, who are there not for the gameplay, but for the Tyler1 ride.

Those who caught the streamer’s November 27 cast were certainly in for a ride. The League of Legends star collided with Smash Ultimate’s biggest name, MkLeo.

It makes sense a crossover between the two was inevitable ⁠— with both being part of prestigious organization T1 ⁠— but the action exceeded everyone’s expectations. Of course, Tyler1 got trounced by MkLeo. However, that doesn’t mean he wasn’t able to get a stock or two, and the League streamer let the Smash pro know about it.

“Leo, I don’t think you’re that good dude. How bad are Smash players if I almost f**king beat you,” Tyler1 said, while struggling to get more than half a stock on average every game.

MkLeo didn’t take it lying down though. “You’re so bad that you’re really good at the same time,” he hit back with.

Tyler1 kept frying the big fish though. Next on his stop of trash talk was Leffen. “Leffen is a scrawny p*ssy a** b*tch. Kid sucks at f**king Smash. Rages at a children’s game, f**king loser,” he said, which had MkLeo in stitches. He had enough slaptalk for Samsora and other pros too.

Fans were also treated to some iconic Tyler1 reactions, and there was none bigger than the streamer’s bewilderment at Arsene, Joker’s Persona. “What the hell is that? Did you just enter a cheat code, bud? Are you cheating?”

After it was all said and done though, the crossover did what it intended to do. It united the League of Legends and Smash communities, and entertained everyone in the crossover that no one really wanted, but they definitely enjoyed.

“Playing and chilling with [Tyler1] really made me realize what it is to be a streamer and a gamer. Loved his personality and him as a person, looking forward to more collaborations like these,” MkLeo said on Twitter.

“T1 playing smash with Leo was actually so godlike. Makes me actually want to play league more and see if I can get to further than Masters,” Samsora also added on Twitter.

Tyler1 kept his side of the story nice and quaint though: “It was pretty fun.”
