KSI has told talkSPORT he will knock Logan Paul out by the FIFTH round of their boxing rematch.
The two Youtubers will fight each other in the ring for a second time after battling to a draw in their first bout – the rematch taking place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Brit KSI also took the opportunity to send a chilling message to Paul’s younger brother Jake, who is also a Youtuber, that he’d like to “break Jake Paul’s skull.”
At the KSI vs Logan Paul rematch press conference in London, KSI insisted that Paul will not be able to deal with him come November 9.
He told Gareth A Davies: “November 9th I’m knocking him out by round five. There’s nothing he can do about it.
“He can lift as many logs or trees or tyres as he wants. He’s getting finished.
“I don’t know what he’s going to be doing, I don’t care…I do not like Logan.
“I feel like that makes sense [a fight with Jake Paul]. I’d love to have that fight. I’d love to break his skull as well but we’ll see.”
The fight has divided opinion in boxing circles with two men who are not primarily professional boxers at the sport getting so much coverage.
It’s being promoted by Matchroom chief Eddie Hearn and will be streamed on DAZN.
It will also be shown live on Sky Sports Box Office pay-per-view in the UK for a price on £9.95.

He added: “There have been people saying ‘oh, this is a disgrace’ and there have been some people who have said ‘this is fantastic for the sport’.
