Report: Logan Paul-KSI rematch expected to take place Nov. 9 at Staples Center

Logan Paul and KSI are going to lace up the gloves one more time.

The YouTube stars battled to a six-round majority draw last August before an announced crowd of 18,000 at Manchester Arena in Manchester, England.

According to The Athletic, the rematch is expected to take place on November 9 at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, where a sellout is expected.

The match, which pulled in just over one million pay-per-view buys, was dubbed "The Biggest Event in Internet History." scored the first fight in favor of KSI 58-56. But if you ask Paul, he won the first bout and is out for well... "murder" in the rematch.

"I'ma fu***** murder that dude, bro. Actual murder, bro," Paul told TMZ last month.

While the fight is a few months away, the "bro" contest is underway as well. Thus far, Paul has outbroed KSI by a score of 2-0.

Meanwhile, heavyweight world titleholder Deontay Wilder is expected to defend his belt for the 10th time in a rematch (a legitimate one) against Cuban boxer-puncher Luis Ortiz on Nov. 23. With the Staples Center booked, The Athletic reports that the bout could be moved to Las Vegas. Boxing Scene's Jake Donovan listed T-Mobile Arena as a potential destination.
