KSI and Logan Paul to turn pro for rematch with Billy Joe Saunders on undercard – The Sun

KSI and Logan Paul are set to turn pro for their rematch – with Billy Joe Saunders on the undercard.

The two YouTube stars battled to a majority draw in Manchester last year and will now fight again in the USA.


But this time the influencers will turn professional and will obtain a boxing licence with the California State Athletic Commission.

And it's been revealed Saunders will make his eagerly-anticipated return to the ring on the undercard for the Los Angeles fight on November 9.

The British star will defend his super-middleweight world title at the Staples Center, with Eddie Hearn promoting the event.

KSI edged the first fight, held in Manchester last year, with one judge giving him the nod and the other two scoring their six three-minute round exhibition bout a draw.

MURDER

And Paul stoked the fire ahead of their rematch earlier this summer, threatening to "f***ing murder" KSI – real name Olajide William Olatunji.

The American claimed: “I’m going to f***ing murder that dude bro, actual murder bro.

“Deontay Wilder said this, boxing’s the only sport that you can kill a man in the ring and get paid to do it.”

Paul continued the war of words ahead of rematch negotiations earlier this year by sharing a compilation of sparring videos with his 16million Instagram followers.

The caption read: “I'm a jokes guy but don't sleep on the bad motherf***er inside me.

“Here's some unreleased sparring footage from last August.

“I got a nasty hunger to damage the next man who's got a big enough balls to step in the ring with me.”
