YouTubers Logan Paul and KSI, trailblazers of the influencer boxing movement, have exciting news for their fans. On October 14, they will be part of a thrilling double main event in Manchester, England. However, there’s a twist—instead of facing each other again, they will compete against separate opponents. The event, named the “Prime Card,” is tied to their joint venture in the Prime sports drink business. The format of the fights, whether exhibitions or professional matches, has yet to be disclosed.
Logan Paul, 28, has been absent from the boxing scene since his exhibition bout with Floyd Mayweather in June 2021. Logan Paul holds one professional fight on his record, a split-decision loss to KSI in 2019. Before that, they had an amateur contest that resulted in a majority draw in 2018. Lately, Paul has been making waves as a part-time WWE wrestler, garnering attention with his appearances in significant events, including two WrestleManias. He is set to participate in a match at SummerSlam, one of WWE’s premier annual shows on August 5.
“I’m thrilled,” Paul told ESPN on Friday. “It’s been so long since I had a boxing fight, and I feel like I’ve kind of been left out of the conversation. But I don’t train wrestling. I train boxing. I practice for my matches a couple of times, but it’s not like I’m doing WWE training. I’ve been behind the scenes just boxing for the past two years, so I’m so excited to finally get back in the ring and show people how good I really am at the sport.”
While Paul is aware of his opponent for October 14, he is keeping the name under wraps for now, stating it would be “premature” to reveal it.
KSI, 30, boasts a record of 3-0 (1 NC) in exhibition boxing matches, securing all three victories via knockout. His most recent bout in May against Joe Fournier initially appeared to be a knockout win, but upon review, the hit was deemed to have come from KSI’s elbow, resulting in the fight being declared a no-contest. His sole professional boxing match ended in a triumph against Logan Paul.
The upcoming double main event involving these influential YouTubers is sure to ignite excitement among their millions of followers. The boxing world eagerly awaits to witness their latest performances.
