On 3rd February KSI, gamer turned rapper, had his first boxing debut fighting Joe Weller, another YouTube sensation, after an on-going feud between these two YouTuber's. KSI won this fight and continued to 'call out' Logan Paul, a controversial vlogger, and his younger brother Jake Paul who is also a huge YouTuber.
KSI has never stated why he did this but many people think it is because Logan Paul has a much larger audience than Joe Weller whose live stream broke record of over 1.5 million people watching the fight live.
