KSI And Logan Paul Clash During Feisty Press Conference

YouTubers KSI and Logan Paul clashed in a Los Angeles press conference ahead of their boxing bout in Manchester on 25 August.

KSI, real name Olajide Olatunji, beat YouTuber Joe Weller in the third round of an amateur white collar boxing match that garnered millions of views, and immediately set his sights on the polarising Pauls.

In February, it was announced that KSI and his brother ComedyShortsGamer (Deji) would square off in separate encounters with Logan and Jake, with the matches divided between the elder and younger brothers.

Today, they were on stage in LA in what was a blatant rip-off of the Mayweather and McGregor shenanigans, only this time Mr "Let's Go Champ" himself, Shannon Briggs, was hosting it.

There was the usual back and forth trash-talking before things kicked off after KSI parodied Logan's apology following his controversial video in a suicide forest in Japan.

Referencing the suicide video, KSI said: "What the fuck happened in January?"

Then asked: "What are you going to do when you lose? He's going to set up his camera, he's going to look all beaten up and bruised and then he's going to start with something familiar."

It's here he pops the wig on and continued: "I've made a severe and continuous lack of judgement..."

An irritated Logan got up in KSI's face, knocked off a wig that had been handed to KSI from a fan in the crowd, and grabbed his bandana. As KSI went for Logan, members of both entourages tried to get involved, with Briggs and security jumping in, in an attempt to defuse the situation.

Fans took to social media to share their opinion on the bizarre presser and upcoming fight:
