18 July 2018, 14:57

The YouTube superstars are going head to head in a boxing match for the ages and fans everywhere are already getting hyped for what will without a doubt be the biggest YouTube event of all time! Here's what we know so far...

Why Is KSI Fighting Logan Paul?

Following KSI's knockout victory over Joe Weller in his first boxing match at London's Copper Box back in January 2018, he called out Logan Paul, Jake Paul or any other Paul and that's what sparked the whole thing.

Initially it was Logan's brother Jake who appeared to be the favourite to step inside the ring with KSI, but his older bro soon stepped up and decided he was going to head into battle with the British star.

When Is The KSI Vs Logan Paul Fight?

There will actually be two KSI vs Logan Paul fights. The first will take place on 25th August 2018 in the UK, whilst the second fight is scheduled for February 2019 and will take place at an undecided venue in the US.

Whilst an official deal appears to have been signed by both parties, the pair are still arguing on Twitter about money. Pictures have been fluing around Twitter showing a signed contract and pictures of Logan and KSI in each other's faces.

Where Will The KSI Vs Logan Paul Fight Be Held & What Is The Venue?

KSI had stated that his next fight will be taking place in England and that has proven to be true. The UK fight will be taking place on 25th August 2018 in the Manchester Arena - that's the same venue where the likes of Mike Tyson, Amir Khan and David Haye have all fought.

KSI had previously revealed that if the Logan Paul fight did go ahead then the pair would look to book a large venue with a capacity bigger than the 7,500 seats of East London's Copper Box, where he hosted his last bout against Joe Weller.

The U.S fight set for February 2019 has not had a venue allocated yet and it seems that both fighters have the option to pull out of that deal shortly after the UK date.

Logan and Jake Paul originally wanted any fight to take place in a neutral venue and would prefer Dubai, so it seems that the two fight deal was enough to convince them to go ahead and sign the contract.
