The dust has barely settled after KSI and Logan Paul’s historic YouTube boxing match, but fans are already desperate to know when, and if, a rematch will take place.

The two online entertainers fought to a majority decision draw (one judge scored the fight in favor of KSI) on August 25 in front of over 17,000 fans in the Manchester Arena.

But it looks like the Brit and American will get a chance to settle the score in a highly anticipated rematch for KSI vs Logan Paul 2 in 2019. Here’s everything we know so far.

KSIvsLogan / YouTubeThe August 25 showdown ended with more questions than answers.

Will there be a KSI vs Logan Paul rematch?

Yes. A deal for a rematch was actually signed before the first fight even took place.

After the draw on August 25, KSI stated: “I think there’s only one thing to do. I think we have to have a rematch. Let’s do it. That was fun.”

Logan Paul agreed, saying: “I think it’s what the people want. Let’s give them a motherfucking rematch.”

When will the rematch take place?

It is understood that the rematch is pencilled in for February of 2019, 6 months after the first fight.

No exact date has been set, though, and KSI has expressed a desire to push the date back to early summer.

The YouTube sensation told BBC Radio 5 Live that he will “make sure” the rematch will not take place in February, saying “I would love it to be early summer, like May. I think that would be perfect.”

Having fought twice in 2018, the 25-year-old said that he wants some time to relax, take a break from strict dieting and enjoy the company of his friends and family before getting back to the boxing grind.

Where will the rematch be?

The rematch is due to take place in the USA, though no exact city or destination has been set.

Following their success in the Manchester Arena, it is likely that KSI and Logan will aim to find a similarly sized venue for their second meeting.

During his interview with BBC 5 Live, KSI stated that he would like the fight to take place “somewhere like Dubai” but that “New York would make the most sense”.

How can I watch the rematch?

With no confirmed date or venue for the fight, there is also no information about how you will be able to watch it.

If the first fight is anything to go by, the rematch will be streamed on YouTube and be a pay-per-view event.

It is also likely that fans will be able to purchase tickets to attend the event and watch all of the fights live.

Stormzy drops ‘Rainfall’ music video in Watch Dogs, and it actually slaps

Stormzy has officially made his Watch Dogs Legion debut with the release of his ‘Rainfall’ music video, which was filmed entirely inside Ubisoft’s upcoming trilogy sequel and if we’re being honest, the whole thing is kind of awesome.

Every day another celebrity seems to find their way into the digital world. This year, Ninja and Aussie Twitch streamer Loserfruit were both added to Fortnite. Then, just last month, Dr Disrespect had a unique variant skin and themed ‘Arena’ map he designed released in Rogue Company.

Now it’s British grime rapper Stormzy’s turn, in Watch Dogs: Legion.

The rapper, 27, released a music video for his new single “Rainfall” on Thursday, Oct. 22, with a bit of a twist ⁠— the entire clip was filmed in Ubisoft’s upcoming sequel.

A digital Stormzy first appeared in a virtual studio, singing his new single. The scenery soon changed, however, and he was transported ⁠— all in-game ⁠— to the rooftops of London, where the new Watch Dogs sequel will mainly be taking place.

Here’s the new music video, featuring Tiana Major9, in all its glory.

This isn’t the only time Stormzy will be appearing in Watch Dogs Legion either. When the full Legion title drops on Oct. 29, players will get the chance to team-up with the grime rapper, or at least a virtual version of him, for an exclusive side-quest.

The mission, “Fall on My Enemies,” is a reference to Stomrzy’s lyrics in ‘Rainfall.’ 

When accepted, players will be tasked with “protecting the broadcast of the music video across the entire city.” Ubisoft has yet to confirm how long the mission will be, or whether it has any major bearing on the main Watch Dogs storyline.

Stormzy first revealed his collaboration back in September. He said, “You lot are about to have your minds blown. What [Ubisoft] have done in terms of recreating London is one of the most insane, epic, incredible things I’ve ever seen.”

Stormzy 'filmed' his entire Rainfall music video inside Watch Dogs: Legion.

The Watch Dogs devs said they were “thrilled” to have Stormzy onboard. “His music and what he speaks to as an artist is extremely relevant for our London setting, and for the larger themes of our game. He lit up the room… it was a career highlight for us to get to work with him.”

Ubisoft has confirmed the exclusive Stormzy Rainfall mission will be available from day one in Watch Dogs Legion, and will require no additional DLC patches to play.

The Watch Dogs trilogy sequel will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia on Thursday, October 29. The title will also be ported to Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 when the next-gen consoles are released in late 2020.
