With only a few days to go until KSI and Logan Paul square off in their highly-anticipated YouTube boxing rematch, there is a surprising amount of tickets still available.

Ever since the KSI and Logan Paul rematch was announced, fans on both sides have been gearing up to get behind their favorite content creator as they prepare to step back in between the ropes and into the ring. 

They’ve made their feelings known on social media, in the YouTube comments section, and even at the two pre-fight press conferences. Just how many of those fans will shell out for the pay-per-view stream remains to be seen, but as of now, they may be better considering heading to witness it in person – provided they live pretty close of course.

Logan Paul (YouTube)The YouTubes will be pitted against each other on November 9, live from Los Angeles.

That’s because, as of writing, there are still thousands of tickets left – well over 6,000, actually – including a healthy portion of the cheapest tickets, which are priced at $41 before additional fees from the ticketing websites

Some sections, in fact, are pretty much completely available, including one of the floor sections behind the media, where only a handful of tickets have been sold at the going rate of $517. 

A few resale tickets, which are spread across the arena, are also available on these sites, suggesting that either people can’t attend or the secondary market hasn’t quite seen the demand that they may have been expecting.

The majority of Staples Centre sections still have plenty of tickets remaining.

However, that’s not to say that tickets won’t be sold before November 9. Matchroom Boxing’s Eddie Hearn explained on the True Geordie podcast that American fans typically buy late in the day, compared to UK fans who jump on tickets as soon as possible.

Yet, detractors of a full sell-out show have remained since the start, as the promoter of the first bout – Stuart Jones – told the Happy Hour podcast that he wasn’t sure if the Staples Centre was the correct venue for both ticket sales and pay-per-view buys from the get-go.

Hearn had previously revealed to IFL TV that 7,000 tickets had been sold at the start of October. That would be a third of the arena’s capacity, but it’s also unknown how it will be configured for the fight, and if all section have, indeed, been up for sale.

We won’t have long to wait, though, considering the YouTube pair will square off in less than a week’s time.

Daequan’s first tweet after 6-month hiatus sparks hope for Twitch return

Daequan ‘Daequan’ Loco has broken his six-month social media silence in time for Thanksgiving. While the tweet was short and sweet, it has given fans of the former TSM Fortnite star hope for a potential return to Twitch.

Daequan has practically disappeared from the public eye in 2020. He vowed that he’d try to return to Twitch by January 2020 after taking time off to focus on his health, but hasn’t made an appearance on the platform since December 2019.

On top of that, he’s gone quiet on socials, not posting anything since March. While he has moved in with long-time friend and former duo Hamlinz in the meantime, there wasn’t any indication he was coming back to streaming.

However, Daequan has finally broken his silence to give thanks to his fans on Thanksgiving, and tell everyone that he is getting along just fine.

“Feeling better than I have in years. Always thankful,” the short message red, with a selfie of the streamer.

The tweet has gone viral, with over 100,000 fans liking the tweet, and many of his contemporaries sending him messages of support, including TimtheTatman, NICKMERCS, and Classify.

Daequan’s eight-word return has also managed to spark hope in his fanbase of a potential return to streaming. No matter whether it’s Fortnite, or a new game that’s come out in his absence like Valorant, Daequan’s fans are itching to see him back on the platform.

There is potential for a return. Hamlinz has been a bit more active on social media, and Tfue even tried to get him to turn on the stream ⁠— even if just for a day.

No matter what though, Daequan is taking things at his own pace. He’s still on that journey to better health, and will return in his own time when he believes it’s right.

Fans of Daequan will be hoping it’s not another six months until we hear from the TSM Fortnite star again, but only time will tell if he actually commits to returning to streaming.
