Both men tweeted the promo material for the fight, with Logan Paul writing: "Finally. @KSIOlajidebt you're f***ed. November 9th, 2019 Staples Center, LA Pro fight, No headgear."
The two will go toe-to-toe at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, with pre-sale tickets available from 10 September and general sale from 14 September.
Eddie Hearn will be promoting the fight, which will also see Saunders defending his middleweight world title.
Paul and KSI's first fight last August was the biggest non-professional boxing match of all time in terms of pay-per-view numbers, pulling in more than one million customers.
But ever since it ended in a disappointing draw, following six three-minute rounds, fans have been eagerly waiting for official news of a much-talked-about rematch.
In the immediate aftermath, both stars said they were keen for a rematch to try and find a winner once and for all, with KSI saying he 'didn't care where it was' but they would do it again.

However, since then it's been a pretty slow process, leaving some fans to wonder if it was ever going to happen.

Even KSI seemed to be losing patience when he recently tweeted: "If this fight doesn't happen in the US by the end of the year, then let's bring it back to the UK and fight at the O2 next year.
"Whenever it was in the UK the fight actually got sorted. As soon as it's in the US, nothing f***ing happens. I'm bored now.
"So let's have this rematch in the UK already 'cos you know and everyone else knows you lost the fight that night."
Earlier this month, Paul also shared a clip of the fight on his Twitter account with the caption: "One year ago today... who's ready for the rematch?"
Well, it looks like it's time for the two to finally put their words into action...
