Legendary ring announcer Michael Buffer will attend and introduce the main event fight at the August 25 KSI vs Logan Paul boxing event in Manchester, KSI has revealed.

Michael Buffer is famous for his catchphrase “Let’s get ready to rumble”, and has been the announcer for countless iconic fights and appeared in many sports and boxing movies.

The KSI vs Logan Paul boxing match, which will also feature a fight between their younger siblings Deji and Jake Paul, is set to be a massive event thanks to the fighters’ respective YouTube followings.

But bringing in a name like Buffer should help give the event more mainstream appeal, and adds to the list of other big names in boxing involved, including the Mayweathers who have been training KSI.

Buffer’s ‘Let’s get ready to rumble!” catchphrase is so iconic, that he acquired a federal trademark for it in 1992, and has used it in boxing movies such as Rocky Balboa and 2000 wrestling movie “Ready to Rumble”.

He currently works as the announcer for HBO Boxing, ESPN and selected Sky Sports boxing matches in the United Kingdom.

This will be his first time working for a YouTube boxing match, which was revealed yesterday to be a pay-per-view live event on the platform.

Tickets for the event are on sale now, starting at a modest £30-40 for the cheapest, and rising to over £500 ($650) for the complete VIP package.

The second press conference was held on July 18th in London, but was cut short due to the Paul brother’s abruptly leaving the stage following a torrent of insults from KSI.

Rapper Future has had an incredible career spanning over several decades. In that time, he’s risen through the ranks to become a household name in the rap/hip-hop genres. Now, he’s revealed the latest addition to his garage in the form of this crazy one-off Chevrolet Blazer.

Future – real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn – is an American rap artist from Atlanta, Georgia. In his time as a musician, he has amassed a number of awards and released several critically-acclaimed albums and tracks.

With a car collection including Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Bentleys, he has now revealed his latest addition.

Standing out from his collection of ‘typical’ exotic cars, Future has now taken delivery of his custom-commissioned Chevrolet K5 Blazer truck from renowned tuners RingBrothers.

This fully-restored, one-off build looks absolutely incredible and will stand out among Future’s other ‘stock’ cars. Finished in British Racing Green, this is a color that was not available from factory, and was used only for his personal build.

The exterior has been left mostly stock other than the color change, but the front headlights have been upgraded to LED units. Not only have the headlights been changed, but also the wheels – the stock items being replaced by a set of 18″ gold HRE wheels.

Inside, the car has been completely re-trimmed in brown leather, with a number of embossed logos throughout. The factory analog dials have been refreshed, but a 10″ touchscreen has been fitted to the dash. This is coupled to an uprated JL audio system – a key upgrade for a musician such as Future.

Future unveiled the truck on his Instagram:

Underneath the hood is the biggest upgrade to the car – a complete engine and transmission swap. The stock motor has been ditched for a 6.2l LS3 V8, coupled to an uprated GM automatic transmission. With 430hp on tap, Future will have plenty of fun driving this custom truck around.

RingBrothers co-owner Mike Ring is justifiably proud of the result: “We’re humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this.”

“We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We’re glad Future appreciates that.”
