At long last, the KSI vs Logan Paul rematch has been and gone, with YouTuber KSI being named the victor from a split decision after a tense six rounds.
On the subject of his win, KSI said: ‘KSI last time was scared, I was scared to fight, I was scared to touch him…this time I went in, I just kept going.
‘They saw how much bigger [Logan] was, they saw his physique…I said “Screw that, I’m going to work my ass off.”’ He added: ‘I’ve never worked so hard…I was ready, I was on fire. He couldn’t deal with my jabs. He kept moving, but hey, I got him.’
After all the hype surrounding the fight, KSI could well be celebrating for quite some time and it’s left many people wondering: Will he be celebrating with a special someone?
Does KSI have a girlfriend?
Even though he’s kept notoriously secret about his love life, in the run-up to the rematch KSI, 26, made a rare reference to a ‘beautiful girlfriend’ of his in a social media post.
While opening up about the demanding nature of his training, the YouTuber wrote on Instagram: ‘Fight camp done. This has hands down been the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life.
‘Training twice a day (3 times on Tuesdays) and mountain runs on the Saturdays with Sundays to rest.
‘My body has been pushed to a point I never knew I had. I came to Vegas to be trained by the best with no distractions and I have come out an absolute beast.
‘Throughout this period I have missed my family, my friends and my beautiful girlfriend, but they all understood that me training in Vegas was necessary.
The Londoner added: ‘I’m not lying when I say this, Logan Paul will not be able to handle me. I’m gonna drag him into deep waters. Shannon Briggs and all his other yes men can motivate Logan all they want, but when November 9th comes and he’s staring into my eyes in that ring, he will know he’s already lost.
‘I hit hard, you know that, so I hope you’re prepared to work Logan, because 6 rounds of hell is coming your way…That’s if you last that long…Thank you @cityathleticboxing for your hospitality.’
Ahead of the rematch, both competitors traded barbs, with Logan Paul hitting out at KSI’s alleged history with abortion, saying: ‘Y’all may not know it but JJ’s on his fifth abortion. His fifth. That’s five babies dead.
‘And I think I might return the favour. And I might kill you. I might end you. I’mma light you on fire, bro,’ he added.
When the 24-year-old faced major backlash for the comment, Logan defended himself by maintaining that he’s pro-choice.
He said on his podcast Impaulsvie: ‘I’m not gonna lie, it was a pretty horrific thing [to say], I was not being a nice guy and I was not concerned about being a nice guy because I want to end this man.
‘Yo, I’ll say it. I’m pro-choice. I am pro-choice and I’m happy to be vocal about it.
‘I was getting cancelled by the pro-choicers and having the pro-lifers defend me but I’m pro-choice.’
Who has KSI dated in the past?
KSI, whose real name is Olajide Olayinka Williams Olatunji and who often goes by JJ, previously dated fellow YouTuber Seana Cuthbert until 2014.
She’s not been hugely active on YouTube for the last few years, but her last video, which was posted in 2018, goes into detail about her relationship with KSI.
She says: ‘We were very young when we first met. I met JJ when I was 17.
‘We were totally miles apart. First of all he lived in London, I lived in Newcastle so it was long distance.
‘He was also really busy with his YouTube, he didn’t have the time for a relationship and obviously we were quite young and he wanted to go out and enjoy himself which every lad does. I have moved on, he’s moved on.’
In addition to Seana, there was also a great deal of secrecy and speculation surrounding another person he dated in in 2017, who was eventually revealed to be a woman called Lois in a video of his called ‘Mauritius With My Girlfriend’.
