On 24 Februaryit was announced that KSI would be fighting Logan Paul in a white-collar boxing amateur boxing match, with his brother, Deji, fighting Paul's younger brother Jake on the undercard.
On 3 Septembera rematch between the two was announced. Upon its announcement as a professional bout, the event drew criticism from a number of figures within boxing, as well as boxing journalists and fans, some of whom labelled the fight as an 'insult' to boxing. The headline accusation was that the pair were using the event as a 'cash grab' and questioned the 'legitimacy' of the match as a professional bout, and many questioned the choice of putting professional world-title bouts on the undercard beneath two YouTubers.
Others within the sport, however, were more receptive to the fight and embraced the event. Kevin Draper of The New York Times noted KSI, Paul and the organisers' intention to bring a new audience to a 'stagnant' sport and highlights the fact both YouTubers sought coaching from world-champion boxers and trainers. After six three-minute rounds, KSI was the winner via split decisionwith two judges scoring the fight 57—54 and 56—55 for KSI, while the third judge scored it 56—55 in favour of Paul.

KSI and Daniel became friends in When he went back home, he noticed how substantially Daniel's channel was growing, with the collaborative videos gaining hundreds of thousands of views. However, once the collab videos ran out, Daniel's channel began falling apart.
JJ planned to a book a hotel room for him nearby since his house was too small for him to stay at, but Daniel wanted a hotel in Hackney which is a dangerous place according to JJ. There are allegedly a large amount of filmed videos of the two which the public will never get to see. JJ agreed, but on one condition: that Daniel pay him back for the costs of his hotel stay, which Daniel apparently said he would do.
Daniel was diligent in saying that he would pay up after they reconvened again, but allegedly never did. JJ was mad when he saw that and attacked Daniel on Twitter for it, livid that for all of the work JJ went out of his way to do to help Daniel get into the YouTube scene.
He got nothing but a stab in the back in return. On 19 AugustDaniel released a final video announcing that he was quitting YouTube, and although he mentioned school as the primary factor in his decision, it's possible that he finally grew tired of the hate JJ believes this was the reason.Top 100 YouTubers Live Sub Count - Pewdiepie, cocomelon race to the first

Archived from the original on 4 January Retrieved 4 January Iis a British YouTuber, rapper, actor and boxer who is a member of the Sidemen. JJ and Deji also have a notable uncle and a maternal grandfather who died before JJ was born.
JJ and his family have all said that he was a shy person as a child and an introvert. They split in mid after being together for around two years. The rest of the Sidemen often joke about his break up with Seana in their videos by also saying that they are getting back together. This is unconfirmed. KSI initially grew bad blood towards Kjellberg since he was one of several big YouTubers who criticized the craze as changing the YouTube community for the worse and creating an aggressive atmosphere between other YouTubers.
Additionally, KSI was wronged by Kjellberg when he accused him of copyright-striking a video of his since it used one of his songs. The two continually fired shots at one another through Twitter.
The beef was somewhat revived when KSI teamed up with RiceGum in a feud against Kjellberg, with himself and RiceGum reportedly working on a "diss track" together against him one that currently has yet to be released. Despite this, KSI came to Kjellberg's defense during the infamous fallout of the media portraying him as an anti-Semite and Nazi as a result of some "offensive" jokes he made, stating that he sympathized with Kjellberg since he knows what it's like to be in that spot.
Ever since then, both KSI and Pewdiepie have admitted in their videos that they respect each other with KSI saying: we're both good YouTubers, if anything there's a level of respect there and Pewdiepie saying: "he's a level headed dude and I do respect him". KSI had a notable ex-girlfriend in During their relationship, JJ tried his best not to expose her to the public, due to personal reasons and fears that she would be harassed. He said that no one can find who she is and that he doesn't follow her on any social media.
In the video, Deji claims that she is an American musician - and Instagram-famous persona - Jean Watts. In the video the two are seen in Mauritius and KSI actually revealed her face for the first time. He revealed her name to be Lois. However they broke up about a month later.

Miniminter Simon Minter. Vikkstar Vikram Barn. Zerkaa Josh Bradley. Behzinga Ethan Payne.The dispute between the two came to the fore after Deji posted a video accusing his brother of mental and physical attacks on him. In a minute video titled only "bye" and posted on his personal YouTube channel, Deji accused his brother of hurting and upsetting him, as the two grew their YouTube presence.
He has lost tens of thousands of subscribers, according to the site SocialBlade, apparently in response to the claims made in Deji's video. It is just the latest instance of YouTube stars fighting in public about allegations against someone they are close to, made in a high-profile video.
It comes just days after a feud between James Charles and Tati Westbrook, who posted a similar video alleging misbehaviour and disagreements between the two stars. He posted a news video in which he said that KSI had been cancelled, noted that his following had dropped rapidly and that Deji's intervention was an attempt to reframe the dispute between the pair, which has been ongoing for months.
KSI suggested in new tweets that he would post another video in which he responds to the allegations by his brother — as well as possibly revealing more private details of the dispute between the two. And in his final post, he asked for stories about his brother, presumably in order to expose them to the public. You can find our Community Guidelines in full here.
