Controversial YouTuber Logan Paul is gearing up for his rematch with KSI – and he doesn’t plan to pull any punches inside or outside of the ring.

Paul explained his plan for the conference during a podcast with YouTube group and production team ‘The Corridor Crew,’ claiming that he has “a lot of ammunition” to use against KSI.

Paul noted that he has “new material” to use against his rival, and argued that KSI has nothing new left to use against him – possibly in reference to his ‘Suicide Forest’ scandal in 2018, or, more recently, his controversial ‘going gay’ New Year’s Eve resolution.

While Paul didn’t hint at any dirt in particular, he did mention past sexual harassment claims made against KSI – which could be a jab to his scandal at Eurogamer Expo in 2012.

As for taking the high road, Paul admitted that he “loves to entertain,” and will “dig his knife into the drama” in order to incite big reactions from his audience.

KSI & Logan Paul threw down in August of 2018, which ultimately ended in a disappointing draw.

Paul claimed that his opponent hadn’t respected his wishes to remain “professional” during previous press conferences ahead of their 2018 bout – and that he can’t “imagine” what both parties will say next.

“I really dislike KSI,” Paul admitted toward the end of the podcast. “He took our fun YouTube feud to a level of utmost disrespect… He talked shit about my family, my girlfriend, he mocked me in the most vulnerable time of my life.”

While no specific date has been set for the rematch, KSI chose November of 2019 for the event, while the fight’s venue and state are left to the responsibility of Paul’s team.

BTS crushes 28-year-old record for most music show awards in a year

K-Pop group BTS have once again broken a record after scoring a win at the 2020 Asia Artist Awards (AAA).

BTS, also known as the Bangtan Boys, consists of seven members: V, J-Hope, RM, Jin, Jimin, Jungkook, and Suga. The group debuted in 2013 before soaring to international popularity in 2018 after releasing the YouTube Premium documentary Burn the Stage.

Most recently, BTS released their fifth studio album ‘Be’ on November 20, which includes Dynamite – the first of their songs to be recorded fully in English.

Dynamite helped BTS break their latest record after the song won the Daesung for ‘Best Song of the Year’ at the AAAs.

In the K-Pop world, a Daesung is one of the most prestigious accolades an artist can receive. When winning a Daesung, the focus is on the records the artist released that year, and takes into account how many copies – both digital and physical – were sold.

By winning this latest Daesung, BTS broke a record that has previously been held since 1992 by K-pop trio Seo Taiji and the Boys. The band had previously collaborated with BTS in 2017 in a 25th anniversary concert, wherein Taiji announced that he was passing the torch onto BTS to continue K-Pop’s legacy.

“This is your generation now,” Taiji said at the time.

BTS’ Daesung for Dynamite also extends their record for the most Daesungs in history to 43 – a record they previously broke in 2019 after they won a total of 37.

This isn’t the first time the group’s hit song Dynamite has broken records. Back in August, they broke several milestones on YouTube after fans eagerly watched the premiere of the song’s music video.

One record they broke was for most views within 10 minutes of uploading a YouTube video, as over 20 million viewers tuned in to watch Dynamite during that timeframe.

The live premiere of the video also broke the YouTube record for most concurrent viewers.  One live count recorded that between 3 to 4 million people were watching the video at once.
