The YouTube sensations KSI and Logan Paul are set to return to the boxing ring in October, but not as opponents. The two internet stars, who have a combined following of over 50 million subscribers, will headline the first PRIME card, a new venture by their hydration company.
KSI and Logan Paul first met in the ring in August 2018, in an amateur bout that drew millions of viewers and ended in a draw. They had a rematch in November 2019, this time as professionals, and KSI emerged victorious by a split decision. Since then, the two have become close friends and business partners, launching PRIME, a drink that claims to enhance performance and recovery.
Earlier this year, PRIME signed a promotional deal with the UFC, making it the official hydration partner of the mixed martial arts organization. Now, PRIME is branching out into boxing, with KSI and Logan Paul as the main attractions. The event will take place at the AO Arena in Manchester, England, and will be broadcast on DAZN pay-per-view, by Misfits Boxing.
The opponents for KSI and Logan Paul have not been announced yet, but there are some rumors circulating in the boxing world. KSI has been linked to a potential fight with Tommy Fury, the younger brother of heavyweight champion Tyson Fury and a reality TV star. Logan Paul has been inactive since his exhibition bout with Floyd Mayweather in June 2021, which ended in a no-contest. Some fans have speculated that he might face another celebrity or an MMA fighter.
Regardless of who they face, KSI and Logan Paul are expected to generate a lot of interest and revenue for their PRIME card. The two YouTubers have proven their ability to attract attention and entertain audiences with their personalities and skills. Whether they can deliver another thrilling performance in the ring remains to be seen.
