The highly anticipated boxing fight rematch between YouTubers Logan Paul and KSI may finally be coming together, as Logan claims the details are being finalized.
The pair sparred it out back in August 2018, at the Manchester Arena, but ended in a draw – meaning a rematch was all but inevitable.
With the first brawl eminating from KSI’s native England, the rematch is slated to take place in the US, where Logan should have more support – and the Ohio-born YouTuber has revealed that LA is the most likely destination.
Speaking to TMZ, Logan said the venue will be one of two iconic stadiums – the Staples Center or The Forum.
Logan also said that some of the ‘big details’ about the fight are being “ironed out”, but that the match is just around the corner.
He also apparently had some harsh words for his opponent, labelling KSI a “bitch” and suggesting he hasn’t been training hard in preparation: “he looks like a f***ing meatball right now.” Logan on the other hand has been preparing for months.

KSI has remained relatively quiet on the matter, possibly distracted by his recent European tour.
However, back in June, he slammed Logan for supposedly dodging offers for the rematch, and said that if it wasn’t organized soon, he would just set it up in the UK again instead.
Shut the fuck up. You guys don’t know how to even create a boxing event. You’ve been talking to a few organisers to set this whole thing up since you can’t do it and nothing has happened still. YOURE USELESS. WE GET SHIT DONE IN THE UK https://t.co/VKZhOssgim

When will the KSI vs Logan Paul rematch be?
Given that Paul has claimed the final details are being ironed out, it sounds like the fight could take place sometime in 2019. Potentially, they could do it exactly one year on from the August fight in 2018, but that wouldn’t give them much time to promote the event.
More likely, they would push it to later in 2019, or perhaps even early 2020, as both YouTubers will want to create plenty of drama in the lead up to the bout, and months of back and forth arguments, roasts and even some diss tracks are sure to be part of the narrative.
