YouTube stars KSI and Logan Paul have officially been announced as participants in a highly-anticipated influencer-boxing event presented by Misfits Boxing. The confirmation came after Misfits Boxing teased the upcoming card during their Series 008 event held in Nashville, Tennessee, on July 22, where various influencers squared off in thrilling matches.
Although the two superstars will be featuring in a co-main event, they will not be facing one another in the ring, as their individual opponents are yet to be announced.
During the Series 008 event, Misfits president Mams Taylor took to the stage just before the final fight to hint at the next installment of the Misfits x DAZN influencer-boxing extravaganza. Fans speculated that the teaser suggested potential fights between YouTubers KSI and Logan Paul, along with other well-known figures like Tommy Fury and Dillon Danis.
KSI himself recently took to Twitter to announce the details of the event, which he named the “PRIME” card. He revealed that both he and Logan Paul will have separate fights on the same night, marking the first time they will be stepping into the ring together since their 2019 rematch. The PRIME card will be broadcast live on DAZN PPV, and the opponents for KSI and Logan Paul will be revealed soon.
Fans have been buzzing with excitement, predicting that Logan Paul might face off against mixed martial artist Dillon Danis, given their long-standing feud with the Paul brothers and KSI. On the other hand, speculation surrounds KSI’s opponent, with many anticipating a showdown with British boxer Tommy Fury, whom KSI has been eager to face for quite some time.
The PRIME card is scheduled to take place on October 14 at the AO Arena in Manchester, setting the stage for a historic moment as the two YouTubers put their rivalry aside to compete in this highly anticipated event. This fight holds significant importance for both KSI and Logan Paul, who have not shared the boxing ring since their 2019 rematch. It also marks a notable milestone in their partnership as business collaborators with their PRIME Hydration drink line.
