Who will KSI be facing off against next?

KSI made international headlines when he defeated fellow YouTuber Joe Weller in a much-hyped boxing match.

Ever since his victory, the public - and potential opponents - have been clamouring for KSI to climb back in the ring and show off his boxing skills once more. Now that fight is happening, with none other than beloved fellow YouTuber Logan Paul.

Here's everything we know so far about Logan and KSI's bout:

People who have challenged KSI

KSI has been challenged by a whole bunch of YouTubers - most prominently the Paul brothers Jake and Logan, who even went as far as challenging KSI to fight their dad for some reason. KSI also challenged the Paul brothers to a fight, then went back on it. Then KSI and the brothers had an endless back and forth 'will they, won't they' about the fight that was honestly pretty exhausting to follow. Other YouTubers like Adam Saleh have also been trying to bait KSI into a fight for a while now.

What has KSI said?

KSI previously dismissed the Paul brothers, saying he can't be bothered with them. Instead of responding to any particular challenges individually, JJ has announced that he will let the public vote for who he should face off against next. He discussed his plans in full in this video:

But then things changed

Despite an early indication that KSI would be fighting Adam Saleh, it has now been confirmed that KSI will in fact be stepping into the ring with Logan Paul.

They've confirmed a pre-fight press conference

Logan and KSI will hold a press conference in Los Angeles "at the end of this month" (that means the end of June 2018). As with any boxing press conference - and particularly a YouTuber one - expect things to get pretty spicy. There will be insults thrown, poses struck and maybe even a little bit of good old fashioned rough-housing.

When are they going to fight?

The fight will be taking place on the 25th August at the Manchester Arena in the mighty U of K.

Where can I watch the fight?

KSI's fight with Joe Weller was streamed live on both their YouTube channels, so it's a safe bet that the next fight will also be available to watch live on YouTube. That is, of course, unless you manage to bag yourself some ringside seats.
