KSI will rematch Logan Paul in a professional boxing bout following their white-collar amateur match last August in Manchester.

The second meeting will take place in America with Eddie Hearn's Matchroom Boxing promoting the mega-event.

Both fighters have reacted to the fight announcement on social media.

"Finally, after over a year since our rematch," said KSI. "I get to enter the ring once again to fight Logan Paul. If I'm being honest, I didn't fight well at all in the first fight, and even then, I still managed to draw against him.

"This time I won't make it so close, especially now that it's a pro fight, no head guards and 10oz gloves hahahaha, the time to end him is nearing. I can't wait to see the memes of him slumped on the ground after I've repeatedly beaten the life out of him. He's facing a different animal this time. He will soon realize.

"Big shoutout to DAZN and Matchroom Boxing USA for hosting a monumental fight that will be in the record books whether people like it or not. November 9 is the day 'The Nightmare' becomes his reality."

Paul added: "I'm excited to ruin JJs face and I want to thank DAZN for giving me the platform to do so. Last fight, KSI couldn't beat me with only three months of training under my belt.

"For the past year, while JJ has been wasting his time trying to become a rapper, I've been training every single day. I'm finally getting what I wanted from the beginning - no headgear, 10oz gloves, and the opportunity to dismantle JJ's repugnant face in Los Angeles, my home city.

"After November 9, the embarrassment of losing will eat away at KSI's ego for the next decade; he will be afraid to show face in America. This time, I won't leave it up to the judges."

The rivals fought to a controversial majority draw last year which was dubbed the 'biggest event in internet history' in a fight that generated a staggering 1.1 million pay-per-view buys on YouTube.

They'll run it back in Los Angeles to settle their bitter feud.

Billy Joe Saunders will reportedly headline the undercard. He's set to defend his WBO super-middleweight world title after linking up with Hearn following his departure from Frank Warren.

20-year-old American phenom Devin Haney (22-0) is also set to feature on the undercard.
