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.

Popular YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg criticized viewers who flood his wife Marzia’s Instagram account every time he makes a comment on it to support her. The Swede hit out at the “simp” meme becoming overused.

With over 108 millions subscribers to his channel in 2020, PewDiePie is not only one of the platform’s biggest creators, but undoubtedly one of the most popular entertainers in the world.

The YouTuber has also become an icon when it comes to internet humor. In November, the star called out viewers overusing the popular “simp” meme every time he supports his wife Marzia, and explained why he’s tired of reading it.

PewDiePie hits out at “simp” comments flooding Marzia’s Instagram

While the modern use of “simp” goes back as far as the 1980s, the term has exploded in popularity in 2020, becoming one of the year’s biggest memes. However, during his November 27 upload, PewDiePie explained why it’s starting to become too much on Instagram.

“Instagram is even worse. I commented on Marzia’s post, and I swear to God every single comment… She painted the kitchen and I said “you did so good” because I know she worked hard on it. And it’s just “simp, simp, simp king” every single comment. It is so unfunny. Jesus Christ, dude!” the YouTuber exclaimed.

The star then went on to mock the way memes become tired quickly due to users jumping on the bandwagon and spamming it relentlessly online in comments. “Maybe if everyone says a joke, it becomes funnier,” he said sarcastically.

Hilariously, the star had a follow-up to the situation on November 30 when one fan pointed out that they actually had made a nice comment on Marzia’s Instagram post. “Me understanding that he just wants to be a good husband,” they wrote days prior. PewDiePie then apologized to the viewer. “I’m sorry tg_man 12. I did you dirty, I did you dirty,” he laughed.

While the content creator has made several videos on the simp meme, he has been critical of how its been used in the past and mocked users for their broad use of it. Now it appears the joke is starting to overstay its welcome with how often it’s being repeated.

The 31-year-old has had an incredible year so far, making a successful move to streaming after signing a major deal with YouTube in May to broadcast live exclusively on their platform. The entertainer also surpassed over 108 million subscribers in November, making him the most followed individual on the platform.
