Brian ‘The True Geordie’ Davis has announced that he will be commentating on the Logan Paul versus KSI boxing match.
True Geordie’s role at the event was in doubt after Logan Paul released a video calling him a “Logan and Jake Paul hater” and questioning his ability to remain neutral.
But the two YouTubers appear to have put their differences aside, with True Geordie releasing a short statement saying that he had spoken to Logan on the phone and that he would indeed be covering the “biggest event in internet history”.
Just got off the phone with @LoganPaul
Thanks to everyone who asked for me to commentate.

The Newcastle man, who recently hit one million subscribers on YouTube, also thanked everyone that supported him in his bid to remain part of the commentary team.
Numerous high profile YouTubers, including Joe Weller, Boogie2988 and AnEsonGib, made it clear that they believed Davis was the only man for the job, and online petitions to support his bid were signed by tens of thousands of people.
Logan Paul also responded to The True Geordie’s announcement, saying “Good chat brother. Let’s get ready to rumble”.

Davis commentated on KSI’s first boxing match against Joe Weller in February and has made it clear that he wants to be “the sportscaster of YouTube”.
In a short statement on the latest episode of Drama Alert, The True Geordie told Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem:
“To be fair to Logan, he listened to what i said in the video, called me up, spoke to me man to man, I wasn’t expecting that,
“It’s important to me that I do a good job, not just for everyone fighting, but for YouTube.”
Logan Paul and KSI will step into the ring at the Manchester Arena on August 25. After months of trash talk, accusations and fiery press conferences, the animosity between the two has now reached boiling point.
