KSI Savagely Trolls Logan Paul's Girlfriend At Weigh-In

We were expecting a fair bit of banter at this afternoon's weigh-in between KSI and Logan Paul, ahead of their fight in Manchester tomorrow. But while there were some slightly half-heartedly tense moments (Desi said Jake Paul was too scared to appear at the weigh-in with him, for starters), the climax arguably came when KSI rocked up wearing a mask of Logan Paul's girlfriend, Chloe Bennet.

He'd made us wait for it - at one point it looked like he wasn't even going to show up.

Legendary announcer Michael Buffer - who was brought in to host the weigh-in alongside True Geordie - looked out at the crowd to see where KSI had got to, asking: "Do we have someone from KSI's team right now? He should be here for the weigh-in."

As we all started to assume that the suspense was all part of the theatrics, it finally transpired that there was a very good reason for KSI's slightly delayed arrival. He'd been busy putting on a mask, obviously.

Striding out through the crowd, he was wearing a cut-out of Chloe Bennet's face... long, curled locks and all.

He took to the scales with his new look, flexing his muscles as Buffer read out his weight - 84.9kg to Logan Paul's 86kg.

KSI and Paul then indulged us with a face-to-face, with KSI looking past Paul to blow kisses at his opponent's team.

Paul turned the tables by whipping out some breath mints for KSI, waving his hand in front of his nose to imply that his fellow YouTuber's breath was a bit too pungent for their close-up encounter.

The vlogging stars will go head-to-head at the Manchester Arena on Saturday night after months of insults, diss tracks and storming out of press conferences.

The fight came about after KSI's previous YouTube fight against Joe Weller (yep, another YouTuber) - which KSI won.

In his victory speech, he said: "If any YouTuber wants it, you can come get it. Jake Paul, Logan Paul, any of the Pauls, I don't care."

Logan Paul was up for it, and now here we are.

The boxing event begins at 7pm and will be streamed via YouTube. This one's a pay-per-view event, costing £7.50 ($9.70), though there are also a few tickets left if you want to pop down IRL.
