Logan Paul, the YouTuber who found himself in serious trouble after posting his video of the Suicide Forest in Japan, as well as the rapper, KSI, got into a fight during a press conference this weekend. However, don’t worry, as it looks like they’re just joking around.
During a news conference outside the LA Coliseum at Noon PT on June 16th, Logan 23, and KSI, 24, sparred verbally ahead of their boxing match. Their altercation kicked off when Paul got a little bit too close to KSI while he was talking to the crowd.
The YouTuber than pulled the blonde wig off his head. KSI, Olajide William “JJ” Olatunji, at first, paid him no mind, but when Paul tried to grab at his bandana, it got a little more heated.
KSI chased after the actor and a few other people had to get involved to stop it going any further. As you may know, the pair has a boxing match coming up on the 25th of August.
Logan, who has a younger brother named, Jake Paul, and Deji, KSI’s younger brother, were the openers of the event, and Shannon Briggs, 46, an actual boxer, was the emcee during the conference.

And this isn’t the only time the pair has exchanged words. They got into a scuffle on the 13th of June as well. Cameras who watched over the pair showed Paul saying to KSI that his “head was the size of a watermelon,” and that he “literally couldn’t miss it.”
His partner told him to “wait until Saturday bro, wait until Saturday.” It looks Logan is finding out new ways to generate controversy following his massive PR scandal when he filmed a dead person in Japan’s Suicide Forest.
Fans of the YouTuber will remember when Logan had to publicly apologize, and YouTube announced they were partially severing ties with him.
