KSI vs Logan Paul: YouTube star says rematch of boxing fight should happen in UK ‘next year’

KSI and Logan Paul's much-anticipated rematch should come to London next year, according to one of the YouTube stars.

The two celebrities have been looking to organise a follow-up fight since almost immediately after KSI their first, held in Manchester in August 2018. That first fight was hailed as the biggest event in the history of the internet and made millions of dollars for those involved.

The two have been sparring back and forth over YouTube since, which both attempting to goad the other into a fight.

But attempts to try and recreate that success have largely run into problems. Both fighters have repeatedly said they are keen on doing so – but no progress appears to have been made.

Logan Paul's team has insisted that the match should come back to his home country of the US. They claim to be looking to organise that event soon.

But KSI has said instead that it should come back to the UK – to be held next year, at London's O2.

"If this fight doesn’t happen in the US by the end of the year, then lets bring it back to the U.K. and fight at the 02 next year," KSI wrote in the first of a series of tweets.

In a follow-up post, he wrote that whenever the event was planned in the UK, the "fight actually got sorted". But now that it is being planned in the US, nothing is happening, he wrote.

"So let's have this rematch in the UK already cos you know and everyone else knows you lost the fight that night," he finished, tagging Logan Paul.

KSI's tweets come amid a fallout with his brother, Deji, during which the pair accused each other of mistreatment. Deji had also been a part of the Manchester event, fighting Logan Paul's brother Jake.
