With over 40 million subscribers between them, YouTube stars KSI and Logan Paul are set to once again draw the world's attention when they fight at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Saturday.
KSI and Logan Paul's last meme-fueled bout ended in a majority draw. This time around, they've ditched 'amateur' status and gone professional – which means no head guards and hefty 10oz boxing gloves. As Eddie Hearn, the fight's promoter, put it: "Someone is getting knocked out!"
There's already been plenty of hype and the usual argy-bargy, while a bizarre question about maths saw Logan Paul's trainer, Shannon Briggs, threatened to break the jaw of rival trainer Viddal Riley.
Both British YouTuber KSI and American YouTuber Logan Paul are set to make millions from their professional boxing debuts, scheduled for six three-minute rounds. The winner gets the YouTube Boxing Championship belt, which we're sure will be taken absolutely seriously by the wider sport.
Expect more than just big talk and 'bantz' on Saturday night when the two viral sensations clash in fist-smashing fashion.

Watch KSI v Logan Paul 2 live stream from abroad using a VPN
Even if you've paid to watch KSI vs Logan Paul 2, trying to access streams from outside your territory – if you're on holiday or working abroad, for example – is a problem. These services know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block you – even if you're a national of one of these countries.
So, you’ll need a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to help you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you’re accessing aren’t aware of what you’re doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.
VPNs are as useful for banking as they are at trying to watch video content or access websites that people in your location are not supposed to do. So, whether you want to watch live boxing, enjoy another country’s Netflix library or just keep your browsing data private, then they’re well worth considering.
There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service and would recommend the following:
- ExpressVPN (opens in new tab)
You can get three months free when you sign up to a year-long plan, bringing VPN access to smart devices including the Amazon Fire TV Stick, laptops, TVs and both Android and iOS mobiles and tablets.
- NordVPN (opens in new tab)
Which comes in at as little as £2.29 per month and features 24/7 assistance
Once you’ve made your choice, all you need to do is sign in to your VPN service through whichever device you’d like to use to watch the fight. When prompted to select a server, you need to pick one which is based in the country whose content you’d like to access. Then navigate to the relevant video streaming app or website and you’re in.
