YouTuber Logan Paul has astonishingly claimed he wants to fight Conor McGregor after his rematch with KSI.
The upcoming bout with his long-term rival will be Paul’s first professional boxing fight after their amateur encounter ended in a draw last year.
The two put on a stacked YouTube card last year, but this time, they are going professional, losing the head guards in the process.
Paul and KSI came face to face last Saturday at a press conference for the first time since last year’s draw.
During the presser, Paul was clearly in confident mood ahead of the rematch, telling those in attendance and watching at home: “This will be a first round knockout. You don't stand a chance. After November 9, your life will be miserable."

In fact, he is so confident in himself, he has already spoken about a future venture into a new sport.
That new sport? MMA.
When asked if he would fight against the former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion Conor McGregor, he answered, as per The Independent: “Yeah, I’ll fight Conor. He’s f***ing punching old men in the face.
“He did take it [the punch] though! He took the punch and then just drank his whiskey. Those Irishmen dude, those Irishmen. Wild.
“No offence to Eddie [Hearn], I’m an MMA fan. I want to do MMA after this. I wrestled in high school.”
KSI and Logan Paul will meet at the Staples Center in Los Angeles with promoter Eddie Hearn overseeing the show.
The first fight was watched by more than one million people on the YouTube pay-per-view platform, which is believed to be why Hearn wanted to get involved.
About the fight, KSI said: “Finally, after over a year since our rematch, I get to enter the ring once again to fight Logan Paul.
“If I’m being honest, I didn’t fight well at all in the first fight, and even then, I still managed to draw against him.
“This time I won’t make it so close, especially now that it’s a pro fight, no head guards and 10oz gloves, the time to end him is nearing repeatedly beaten the life out of him. He’s facing a different animal this time. He will soon realise.”News Now - Sport News
