Did KSI just make a pass at Logan Paul's Girlfriend?
Mind games are an age-old tactic adopted by opponents gearing up to face one another - and the fight between YouTube superstars KSI and Logan Paul is no exception.
Tensions between the two personalities have been high since the fight's official announcement, and both fighters have exchanged insults and chirps as they try to gain a psychological upper hand.
During the second press conference in the UK, KSI’s personal attacks on Paul’s girlfriend, Chloe Bennett and his father, Greg Paul caused Logan Paul to walk off stage.
This was followed by a rally of YouTube videos of each person highlighting the others’ past mistakes, with KSI coming out less scathed.
Logan’s latest attempt at getting into KSI’s head involved tweeting that he wanted to spar with KSI’s last opponent, Joe Weller, when he arrives in the UK to train.
i wonder if @Joe_Weller_ would be down to spar while im training in England?— Logan Paul (@LoganPaul) August 8, 2018
When asked the question “Why should people watch the fight?” KSI replied with “Chloe. Just to see her tears after I knock out Logan. I don’t care. She’s going to come to the dark side soon. It’s only a matter of time.”
Randolph and host Simon are left in shock as the 25-year-old British YouTube sensation laughs.
Other comments on the fight included KSI joking on how Logan could learn anything from Joe who did nothing during the fight in February and calling Paul’s family dysfunctional.
Only time will tell if these tactics will prove to be successful or not, and with only a little more than a week remaining, we’ll know soon enough.
