KSI SHOVES LOGAN PAUL DURING FACEOFF STORY: YouTubers Logan Paul and KSI will add another page to their long-running feud at the Staples Center on Saturday (November 9) after having fought to a unanimous draw in Manchester in their first fight last year.
The social media brawlers have both been granted professional licenses for the upcoming bout which means they will contest the fight with 10 ounce gloves and without protective headgear.
Olajide "KSI" Olatunji is a 26-year-old British rapper, gamer and vlogger while Paul, 24, gained a large following on the video-sharing app Vine before moving on to YouTube in 2013.
The pair's first fight drew millions of viewers online as well as 21,000 who watched the fight live at Manchester Arena.
Many were first time boxing fans who follow the pair on social media.
In one of his more infamous stunts he shared a video that appeared to show a body hanging in Aokigahara, a Japanese forest known as a site for numerous suicides.
Promoter Eddie Hearn and Matchroom Boxing -- one of the biggest boxing promoters in the world -- have secured rights to the second fight with broadcast partners Sky Sports and DAZN.
