— Logan Paul (@LoganPaul)October 7, 2019
LOGAN PAUL claims he is crushing pros in sparring as he warned rematch rival KSI: “You will lose everything when I KO you.”
Yank Paul insists he now has the ability and belief of a serious fighter – after “feeling like a YouTuber who was pretending” when the online celebrities drew in Manchester 14 months ago.
Ahead of their cruiserweight showdown without headgear in LA on November 9, Paul also revealed he is targeting a UFC fight once he has “collapsed” Brit KSI‘S career into a “sad meme”.
Vlogger Paul, 24, told a packed press conference: “I have been practising with heavier gloves so when I put the smaller ones on, i will be like lightning.
“I am sparring professional fighters and I am beating them badly. That does so much for my confidence.
“I relied on my athleticism to carry me through the first fight and it almost worked.
“But now I am a boxer, I am literally a professional fighter and I feel like it.
“I love the idea of beating up the person who is trying to beat me up.”
THE highly-anticipated rematch between YouTubers KSI and Logan Paul will be shown on Sky Sports Box Office.
The clash in Los Angeles – which features world champ Billy Joe Saunders on the undercard – takes place on November 9 and will cost £9.95.
Millions tuned in for the first bout last August, which was ruled a draw, when the two fighters were both amateurs.
This is now a professional fight, with Matchroom chief Eddie Hearn promoting the bout.
The press conference, taking place at The Troxy in east London, had to be delayed by 30 minutes because so many people were trying to get inside.
The first fight, which was streamed directly on YouTube, was first priced at £6 before being raised to £7.50 – with an estimated PPV revenue of around £8million.
Sky Sports head of boxing Adam Smith said: “We’re very excited to be showing KSI-Logan Paul 2 live.”
KSI is already plotting his next professional boxing match – against Jake Paul, his opponent’s brother.
The Brit YouTuber, who drew against internet rival Logan, 24, in an exhibition bout last year, has turned professional for the rematch on November 9.
Logan welcomes KSI – real name Olajide William Olatunji – to Los Angeles for the cruiserweight clash at the Staples Center.
But KSI, 26, told TMZ Sports the beef will not be over after their lucrative rematch, revealing he wants to settle the score with younger brother Jake.
He said: “I would love to break Jake’s face as well as Logan’s.
“I personally don’t think, as soon as I knock out Logan, I don’t think he’s gonna want to fight me.
“I think he’s gonna see that and be afraid and just be like, ‘Yo, actually, I don’t know if this whole boxing thing is for me’.”
