YouTuber Logan Paul’s wild year is continuing. First, he put up a video of a dead body in Japan, then YouTube banned ads on his videos for a while.
And now he’s going to be boxing another YouTuber, for real this is not a joke.
Paul and fellow vlogger KSI will be fighting each other next month, here’s everything you need to know about it.
So yes, apparently getting 2 YouTubers to fight is a thing and this isn’t the first time. KSI and another YouTuber, named Joe Weller, fought in London earlier this year.
KSI won the fight and challenged Paul to take him on in another, a challenge which Paul has accepted.
The fight, which is taking place on August 25, is being streamed on YouTube but if you want to see it you’ll need to pay for it.
This makes it the first YouTube pay-per-view fight between 2 YouTubers.
It will cost you $8 US to watch online.
Both KSI and Paul have millions of subscribers, KSI with 18 million, Paul with 17 million.
If all their subscribers watched the pair would walk would be splitting $280 million in streaming money alone, that’s not counting advertisers who will pay to be a part of this.
This won’t be their only fight either, the pair are supposed to fight again in February next year.
There will also be another fight that night before the main event, that will feature Paul’s brother Jake facing KSI’s brother Deji.
So yes, YouTubers boxing each other is now a thing. What a time to be alive.
