KSI And Logan Paul Are Bringing Out A Drinks Company Together
| Last updated
KSI and Logan Paul have massively disappointed fans with their joint announcement.
The two YouTubers teased they would be making a huge announcement on January 4 and many people thought they would be stepping into the ring for another boxing match.
However, that couldn't be further from the truth.
Logan explained how 2022 was the 'year of love' and they wanted to put their differences aside and do something together.
So instead of belting the crap out of each other in a ring, they have brought out a drinks company.
It's called Prime and will be a sports rink that Logan and KSI hope will rival the likes of Coca-Cola, Pepsi, Powerade and Gatorade.
Logan said he got into the science of sports drinks during his training for the Floyd Mayweather bout and that inspired him to make one of his own to mass produce across North America.
While it might be awesome for them, it has left many fans annoyed and disappointed they won't be fighting.

If they had confirmed another fight, it would have been the third time the pair stepped in the ring with one another, with the first ending a draw and their last fight, in 2019, seeing Paul defeated.
During their last bout, which was held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, Paul was actually docked two points for an illegal punch.
The American punched the Brit before grabbing onto his head and thumping him a second time.
He then hit him once more while he was down on the floor.
At the time, referee Jack Reiss counted the knockdown in the fourth round but deducted two points from Paul for punching while holding and for the illegal shots as KSI was on the ground.
Reiss agreed that the initial punch was clean but the ones that followed weren't - meaning Paul was penalised for the offences.
These two points proved decisive because it turns out he was beaten on a split decision.
Since that defeat, Paul has gone on to fight Floyd Mayweather Jr. in an eight-round bout.
The 26-year-old managed to make it through the exhibition fight and was praised for his performance, during which he managed to land a couple of punches on the undefeated legend.
According to repost, Paul stood to make around $20 million (£14.7m) from the fight, the 26-year-old says he still hasn't seen a dime of it.

In a post on Twitter, he shared a photo of an article reporting that Floyd had made so much money from the bout that he could now buy Jeff Bezos' jet.
He said: "Yeah because the dirty little rat hasn't paid me yet lol. It's been six months.
"But no worries @Floydmayweather, @KSI and I are going to make back the money you stole from me and more. January 4."
Replying to a comment from someone asking him what the score was exactly, Logan said he didn't have a clue.
Now it's clear that the money is going to be coming from the Prime drink sales.
