'LOGAN PAUL has confirmed his rematch with KSI will take place in Los Angeles before the end of the year. The two YouTube stars drew millions of viewers when they fought in a six-round boxing fight in August at Manchester Arena. Logan Paul has revealed he will fight KSI again in LA this year The Mega Agency The two YouTubers fought in a six-round boxing fight that ended in a draw last August in Manchester TOM JACOBS That clash ended in a majority draw – but now a grudge match to determine who is the better man will happen Stateside. UFC president Dana White was one of those to praise the last showdown , leaving many to wonder when the two would square-off again. Now Paul, 23, has told TMZ the final details are being ironed out. When asked if they would fight again, he responded: “Yeah bro. America… LA. “Probably November or December at the Staples Centre or The Forum.” Paul is already starting the trash-talk, saying: “KSI’s a bitch, bro! I mean it! “Just imagine everything you do being s***y.” And he has every confidence he will win this time as he claimed KSI is not taking his boxing training seriously. He added: “I know what he’s not focused on… training. He looks like a f***ing meatball right now. “Look at me, I’m in the best shape of my life.” Paul continued the war of words ahead of rematch negotiations earlier this year by sharing a compilation of sparring videos with his 16million Instagram followers. \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t The caption read: “I’m a jokes guy but don’t sleep on the bad motherf***** inside me. “Here’s some unreleased sparring footage from last August. “I got a nasty hunger to damage the next man who’s got a big enough balls to step in the ring with me.” KSI – real name Olajide William Olatunji – has called for the rematch to take place in the UK . The Watford-born social media star 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 02 next year @LoganPaul.” \t \t\t \t\t \t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t LATEST BOXING NEWS \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tReplay\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tKSI vs Logan Paul rematch: When will the second fight of the Youtubers take place?\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tPAC OF THE LINE\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tPacquiao wants Mayweather or title fight vs Spence and Crawford over Khan\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tMAY NEED CASH\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tMayweather 'begging' Khabib for boxing match as he is 'running out of money'\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tSEE RU IN COURT\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tHearn warns Ruiz Jr of legal action if AJ rematch isn't set on Brit's terms\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tNO HOPER\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tFury says Wilder has no chance of beating him - as he'll be three years clean\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tDEL PAL KILL FEAR\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tChisora happy to face Szpilka on Saturday after fearing Wilder killed him\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t \t \t \t \t He then wrote: “Whenever it was in the UK the fight actually got sorted. “As soon as it’s in the US, nothing f***ing happens.

Tyson Fury says Deontay Wilder has no chance of beating him in February rematch — when he will be three years clean of drugs, drink and depression

TYSON FURY insists Deontay Wilder has no chance of beating him in their February rematch — when he will be three years clean of drugs, drink and depression. The Gypsy King stunned the world when he took the undefeated WBC champ and monster-punching
'TYSON FURY insists Deontay Wilder has no chance of beating him in their February rematch — when he will be three years clean of drugs, drink and depression. The Gypsy King stunned the world when he took the undefeated WBC champ and monster-punching American to the judges’ scorecards in their December 2018 bout and landed a draw. Tyson Fury says Deontay Wilder has no chance of beating him in February – as he’ll be three years clean then PA:Press Association The classic came three years after Fury’s last serious fight, the November 2015 masterclass win over Wladimir Klitschko that sparked a year-long blur of booze, cocaine and binge-eating that blew him up to 28 stone. New trainer Ben Davison, a good diet and a couple of warm-up fights was all the 30-year-old needed to prepare for the first Bronze Bomber bout. And he told Channel 4’s new Friday-night show The Lateish Show with Mo Gilligan that the rerun will be a very different story now he is a healthy in mind and body. Fury said: “I’m not gonna take any credit away from Wilder , he’s a great champion and he’s a top puncher. “But if he can’t beat a man who had three years out of the ring, drug and alcohol addiction and mental health problems, then how the f*** is he going to beat me now?” Fury will get another shot at Wilder’s WBC belt in February, unless the American loses his rematch to Cuban slugger Luis Ortiz in November. Fury and Wilder could then have a THIRD fight before the door opens for Dillian Whyte. Brixton ace Whyte, 31, will finally be made mandatory challenger for the WBC strap if he beats Oscar Rivas on Saturday. BIT OF ALL WHYTE Whyte has been the No1 challenger for over 600 days. But boxing politics — and Wilder’s preference for fighting stablemates from promoter Al Haymon’s PBC banner — have kept him away from the Bronze Bomber. But the Body Snatcher will be guaranteed a shot at the crown, that could end up in Fury’s hands first, if he can get past his dangerous Colombian opponent at the O2 this weekend. Whyte’s promoter Eddie Hearn said: “I’m happy we have reached an agreement with the WBC and this makes Saturday even more so important. “Dillian Whyte has faced all-comers in reaching his WBC No1 position and now he stands just one more test away from a shot at the WBC world title — it’s all on the line this Saturday. “We’ve been campaigning for this for a long time. There is one more hurdle to overcome in Oscar Rivas.” Whyte was made the WBC’s No1 contender in November 2017 but Wilder was able to face Bermane Stiverne, Luis Ortiz, Tyson Fury and Dominic Breazeale instead. Wilder stopped Cuban southpaw Ortiz but it was apparently a tough enough fight to warrant a rematch and the brilliant December 1 draw with Tyson Fury will be rerun in February. \t \t\t \t\t \t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t MOST READ IN BOXING \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tMAY NEED CASH\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tMayweather 'begging' Khabib for boxing match as he is 'running out of money'\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tSEE RU IN COURT\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tHearn warns Ruiz Jr of legal action if AJ rematch isn't set on Brit's terms\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tPAC IT IN\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tWatch Pacquiao's confused expression as he DENIES he agreed Khan fight\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tWHYTE NOISE\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tWhyte to be WBC mandatory if he beats 'banana skin' opponent Oscar Rivas\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tHEAVY DUTY\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tRivas hopes to put Fury, Wilder and Joshua on alert with win against Whyte\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tPAC OF THE LINE\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tPacquiao wants Mayweather or title fight vs Spence and Crawford over Khan\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tON THE BOX\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tDillian Whyte vs Oscar Rivas: TV channel, live stream, undercard for fight\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tRIP SWEET PEA\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tFour-weight world champion Pernell Whitaker dies after being hit by a car\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tDEL PAL KILL FEAR\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tChisora happy to face Szpilka on Saturday after fearing Wilder killed him\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tKHAN'T BELIEVE IT!\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tKhan reveals he will fight Pacquiao on November 8 in Saudi Arabia\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t \t \t \t \t After that, Hearn is confident 25-1 Whyte will get his crack at the green and gold title whether it is in Wilder’s grasp or not.

'DERECK CHISORA is happy to be trading blows with old pal Artur Szpilka on Saturday night after fearing Deontay Wilder had killed him. The Finchley slugger, 35, and Polish former football hooligan became friends back in 2004, sharing the silver screen when they starred in the 2018 gangster film Pitbull. Dereck Chisora will be relieved to go up against old pal Artur Szpilka Rex Features Artur Szpilka was floored by Deontay Wilder in their 2016 showdown AP:Associated Press So Del Boy was concerned when the Bronze Bomber detonated his terrifying right hand on the 30-year-old’s skull to end their 2016 clash in savage fashion. Chisora , who faces his old buddy on the undercard of the Dillian Whyte vs Oscar Rivas clash at the 02, said: “I knew Szpilka from around 2004, after he had stopped being a football hooligan and I was over in Poland for business. “We did some filming together for about 10 minutes and hung out afterwards, he is a cool guy. “I watched him against Wilder, he was tired when he got KO’ed. I thought he was dead, he was not moving.” Chisora, used to the luxury of his home on Hampstead Heath, spends weekdays in Rotherham since joining up with new trainer Dave Coldwell in February. \t \t \t\t \t\t\t We indeed traded some blows but not heavy ones. It was more fun than a real fight. The real punches will fly in London. \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t Artur Szpilka on Dereck Chisora \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t \t \t But he could not stand the budget hotel Tony Bellew set up base in when he worked with the coach. Chisora said: “I only lasted four nights in the Holiday Inn Bellew used to stay in and I called him two weeks ago and said ‘How the hell did you do it?’ “Bellew told me: ‘The only way I did was becoming a member in the cinema across the road and seeing two films a day’. “That’s how boring it is. Just training, eating and rest. I just watch Netflix.” Szpilka and Chisora clashed in a fake fight during filming but it will be very real in Greenwich and the visiting southpaw insists fans are in for a treat as both men are a bit unhinged. \t \t\t \t\t \t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t MOST READ IN BOXING \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tPAC IT IN\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tWatch Pacquiao's confused expression as he DENIES he agreed Khan fight\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tWHYTE NOISE\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tWhyte to be WBC mandatory if he beats 'banana skin' opponent Oscar Rivas\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tSEE RU IN COURT\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tHearn warns Ruiz Jr of legal action if AJ rematch isn't set on Brit's terms\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tHEAVY DUTY\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tRivas hopes to put Fury, Wilder and Joshua on alert with win against Whyte\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tMAY NEED CASH\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tMayweather 'begging' Khabib for boxing match as he is 'running out of money'\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tRIP SWEET PEA\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tFour-weight world champion Pernell Whitaker dies after being hit by a car\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tPETER PANNED\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tFury wins shambolic fight as Peter retires and blames ref for shoulder injury\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tPAC OF THE LINE\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tPacquiao wants Mayweather or title fight vs Spence and Crawford over Khan\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tON THE BOX\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tDillian Whyte vs Oscar Rivas: TV channel, live stream, undercard for fight\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tKHAN'T BELIEVE IT!\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tKhan reveals he will fight Pacquiao on November 8 in Saudi Arabia\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t \t \t \t \t He said: “We indeed traded some blows but not heavy ones.

Floyd Mayweather wants to box Khabib Nurmagomedov, the Russian’s manager claims AP:Associated Press Both Mayweather and Nurmagomedov have wins over Conor McGregor Getty Images - Getty While the American has been out of action, McGregor returned to the cage at UFC 229 in October, losing to Nurmagomedov via fourth round submission. Keen to earn another big pay-day against a UFC star, Nurmagomedov’s manager Ali Abdelaziz told TMZ Sports Mayweather is “running out of money” and wants to face the Russian MMA ace. Abdelaziz said: “Floyd Mayweather to this day keeps begging to fight Khabib, begging! “Floyd’s running out of money.” “I’m telling you, people reaching out to me every week about Floyd to fight Khabib but at the end of the day, we’re not interested, for now.” Mayweather made £7million on New Year’s Eve when he took out Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in one round. The 50-0 boxer teased more exhibition bouts in Tokyo to come in the future. Nurmagomedov, meanwhile, faces interim lightweight champion Dustin Poirier on September 7 in Abu Dhabi.

Amir Khan told to ‘get in line’ for Manny Pacquiao fight by Freddie Roach with Floyd Mayweather rematch preferred

Boxing The Sun boxing

'AMIR KHAN has been told he does not deserve a shot at Manny Pacquiao. Khan’s ex-trainer Freddie Roach believes the Brit must “get in line” for a shot at legendary PacMan – who wants a rematch with Floyd Mayweather. Trainer Freddie Roach claims Manny Pacquiao wants to rematch Floyd Mayweather The Mega Agency Amir Khan has been told to ‘get in line’ to face Pacquiao by ex-trainer Roach PA:Press Association Bolton hero Khan, 32, announced on Tuesday that he had “signed” terms for a Saudi Arabian scrap between himself and the Pacquiao to take place in November. But those claims were soon shot down by Filipino icon Pacquiao, 40. Roach says eight-weight champion Pacquiao, who he trains, wants to prove he is the best on the planet. Khan’s last four title shots have all ended in defeat. And Roach believes only a rematch against Mayweather, or welterweight champs Errol Spence and Terence Crawford, will do that. Roach told SunSport: “I’ve heard remarks from Amir Khan saying he wants to fight Manny – but tell him to get in line, he’s way down, deep in the line. Mayweather outpointed Pacquiao in May 2015 in the biggest fight in boxing history AFP or licensors Keith Thurman defends his WBA welterweight title against the Filipino icon Getty Images - Getty “Does Amir Khan deserve a shot? Who’s he beaten lately? Has he beat anyone in the top ten? I don’t think so. “Amir is a good boxer, yes, but if you get knocked out more times than anyone in the division… we’ll just have to see after this fight.” Trainer Roach witnessed dozens of shared rounds in sparring between Khan and Pacquiao in his Los Angeles Wildcard gym. But still the 59-year-old deems Khan, who lost to Crawford in April before smashing featherweight Billy Dib this month, a step down for PacMan – who outpointed Adrien Broner in January. Pacquiao faces WBA welterweight champion Keith Thurman on Saturday night. And Roach added: “To the best of my knowledge there’s been no contact (with Khan) whatsoever – to my knowledge we are not signed with anyone to fight other than Thurman. It’s a good fight for Manny I feel. “If we don’t get Floyd Mayweather next we look at Errol Spence, Terence Crawford, those guys. IBF welterweight champion Errol Spence is a target for Pacquiao Getty Images - Getty Roach also claims WBO welterweight king Terence Crawford is a potential future opponent Reuters “We just want to be in the fight game not only to make money but to be the best fighter in the world.” Many predicted the end for Pacquiao when Australian Jeff Horn was handed a contentious split-decision win for the WBO welterweight title in 2017. But a win over Lucas Matthysse a year later – his first KO in 11 years – and a masterclass against Broner in January, has many convinced many that the veteran is rejuvenated. Having given away his fight purses to the poor, Pacquiao finds himself clashing against an unbeaten, feared puncher in Thurman. Claiming another world title is all part of the Filipino senator’s “motivation” to become president of his homeland, with an election due in 2022. But Roach insists trading punches is still Pacquiao’s bread and butter – despite his political ambitions. Roach added: “His work ethic is so good, it’s always been so good and he’s really hungry to still fight – it’s what he does best. “Being a senator is kind of fun for him, but what he does best is box and that’s why he’s still in the game.
