PewDiePie has released a lengthy video giving his thoughts on the KSI vs Logan Paul boxing match and recent YouTube drama between the two – and had some harsh words for both fighters.
KSI and Logan will headline a major ‘YouTube boxing’ event on August 25, and the war of wards between the two has been ramping up in anticipation of the fight.
Logan recently released a video calling out KSI for sexual abuse comments he made in the past, which KSI then responded to by making accusations of the same caliber towards Logan.
It’s a bitter back and forth, all in hopes of increasing attention on the event itself, as well as attempting to get fans on one side or the other, but PewDiePie is unconvinced that either fighter is worthy of support.

Speaking on the recent videos both made insulting each other, PewDiePie says both are “scumbags”, and equally is immoral, despite both attempting to take the moral high ground.
“Logan Paul plays the moral high ground, and I guess against KSI, that’s not really hard to do. But for Logan Paul to do this it’s… interesting, very interesting. And a of people bought it.
Now KSI, he is a scumbag. You’re both scumbags. KSI has made the same comments about my future wife, Marzia, and I never respond to it because it’s just cringey.
[Logan’s video], I’ll give it props for being well put together, but it just shows how Logan will take any step, even if it’s lying. There’s so many videos where Logan is equally as bad as KSI.”
But PewDiePie says he is tired of talking about both of these YouTubers and the boxing fight itself, and that all this talk is just for the sake of the event making more money.
“These guys are just purely driven by money. This whole event is going to make them a lot of money. Logan is the type of person to do whatever it takes, to get whatever he wants.
Between KSI and Logan, who do I think should win? The thing is, Logan can’t lose. If he loses, I think people will sympathise with him, and if he wins, he wins.
If KSI loses, he’s just going to look like an idiot, because he says he wants to do professional boxing, if you lose against a YouTuber, that career is over before it’s begun.I think KSI will win, and I don’t think it really matters what happens to Logan, he’s in a really good position right now.”
The fight will take place on August 25, and although PewDiePie says he is done making videos on the subject, we’re sure he’ll have it’s say when all is said and done and the score has been settled in the ring.
