YouTube Star KSI Brags That He's 'Rich As Hell' After Logan Paul Fight

YouTube Star KSI Brags That He's 'Rich As Hell' After Logan Paul Fight

Remember that massive fight last year, the one between the two titans of YouTube, KSI and Logan Paul? No, me neither but apparently KSI says the bout made him 'rich as hell'. That's nice for him.

The outspoken vlogger was on Good Morning Britain - entering the studio dressed in a red gown, carrying a crown, low key - and said he absolutely raked in the cash from the pay-per-view fight, which took place at the Manchester Arena, ending in a draw.

Speaking to GMB host Piers Morgan, he said: "[I made] enough. Why do you keep asking me? I've made a good amount.

"That's all I'm going to say."

Pressed on the matter, KSI - real name Olajide 'JJ' Olatunji - eventually admitted: "Yeah, normal boxers do that as well. I'm extremely rich, is that what you want Piers? I'm rich as hell."

As well as the 21,000 fans in the crowd that night, thousands paid £7.50 to watch the barnstormer at home - which both he and Logan have been criticised for doing.

If you were one of the few people who missed the fight, it was a close affair, with not much to choose between the two social media rivals.

KSI said: "I'd say he had the first two rounds but the rest I had completely, all over him.

"He was just grabbing hold of me the whole time."

Since the final bell, the pair have been sporadically at each other's throats, with the Brit saying he's ready to throw down wherever and whenever his American adversary wants.

In recent weeks the pair have taken to sending each other a series of pretty nasty messages.

Kicking off the first round - see what I did there - of scathing tweets, KSI said: "The people don't care about you anymore. You're washed up. A has been."

He added in later: "You can't even break 2 million views anymore lol. Just stop."

But not one to take things lying down, Logan hit back, writing: "Aren't you on your fifth abortion g? crazy theory but: life is about more than views... sometimes it's about... ya know... life ?"

However, KSI landed the final blow of this early salvo, calling out Logan's brother, Jake, saying: "Anyway, @jakepaul you want the main event? You got it. Lets see how "trash" I really am..."

I don't know about you, but I can't wait to see the rematch.
