KSI Clarifies Comments Saying He Is 'Going To F**king Kill' Logan Paul In The Ring
KSI backtracked on his wild statement that he was going to kill Logan Paul when they fight in their rematch this weekend.
The British YouTube star caused uproar with his comments at the press conference in LA, when he told his rival "I'm going to f**king kill you."
But the 26-year-old from London clarified those comments on social media on Friday.
He tweeted: "Just want to clarify a statement I made yesterday at the press conference.
"I don't intend to kill Logan physically tomorrow, I only intend to kill his YouTube career and spirit.
"After this fight, I still want Logan to be alive and well."
The pair both weighed in under the 200lb cruiserweight limit on Friday ahead of their rematch in Los Angeles on Saturday night.
They drew in Manchester in August 2018, which set up their eagerly-anticipated rematch at the Staples Center.
This time Matchroom chief Eddie Hearn got involved in the promotion after the pay-per-view success of their first fight.
But Hearn admitted he's grown frustrated by the pair in the lead up to their LA showdown.
He told Boxing Special: "They don't know enough about boxing, they don't respect the game enough to think about what they're saying.
"Fighters say that kind of stuff all the time, no one ever means it, but I didn't like that when it was said multiple times.
"But I've heard it this week, last week, the week before. I don't think they know enough about the game to know they shouldn't be saying that, in my opinion."
