YouTubers Logan Paul and KSI have finally confirmed that their long-awaited boxing rematch will take place on November 9, 2019, at the Staples Center in LA, but, before the fistfight, the war of words must take place in the press conference. 

Before the first fight in August 2018, two separate press conferences were held, one in the UK and one in the US, with each receiving almost as much attention as the bout itself.

There was also controversy, particularly at the UK conference, after Paul’s father was attacked in the street by fans, and some very personal attacks were shared between the two fighters.

The rematch will take place on November 9, 2019, in the Staples Center.

With the fight only two months away, there will only be time for one press conference amid the training and inevitable online trash talk.

When is the KSI vs Logan 2 press conference?

KSI has confirmed in his announcement video that he and Logan will lock horns on September 14. The location for the press conference has not been revealed yet.

The British YouTuber said his tactic for the event will not “try to make fun of (Logan), because I’ve already done that. I want this to be a bit more direct, and more serious.”

Topic starts at 4:10 for mobile users.

KSI has already got the first win over Logan, after his YouTube video of the announcement racked up 3.4 million views in 24 hours vs Logan’s 1.9 million, beating the American to number one on trending in the process.

However, despite the massive YouTube audiences both fighters command, the bout itself will be streamed exclusively on DAZN, and although it has not been confirmed, it’s likely that the press conference will also be broadcast on the platform.

Presumably, highlights or even the full conference will be uploaded to YouTube after, as will the fight itself, but to see it live DAZN may be the only legitimate place.

In the 2018 fight, attempts to keep the stream exclusively on the pay-per-view YouTube page were in vain as millions watched on Twitch via illegal restreams. This could be part of the reason that DAZN has been selected this time around, but preventing Twitch restreams completely will be near impossible.

TheGrefg breaks Ninja’s world record for most-viewed Twitch stream

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
