Long-time social media rivals Logan Paul and KSI will make an announcement next week regarding an event billed as the “final chapter”.
Paul and KSI were among the settlers of’YouTube boxing’ having fought to a draw in a white- collar bout in 2018.
The brace were granted professional licences the ensuing time before KSI won their rematch in Los Angeles.
Since also Paul has gone on to fight ring legend Floyd Mayweather while Brit KSI-real name Olajide Olatunji-has concentrated on his music career.
But on Wednesday, Paul twittered that he and his rival will make an advertisement on January 4. He identified the post,”This will only end one way”.
It’s unclear whether the brace will pull on a brace of gloves for the third time.
KSI had formerly fought and beaten fellow YouTube star Joe Weller when he met Paul in their first fight in Manchester.
The rivals disaccorded over six rounds in front of suckers with another 63 million tuning in to the sluice, earning both men millions.
Eddie Hearn agreed to promote the alternate investiture, on the condition it was a professional bout.
The fight was again listed for six rounds with KSI winning by split decision after Paul was subtracted two points for hitting to the reverse of the head.
Also world champion Billy Joe Saunders defended his title on the undercard at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
KSI and Paul have come face-to- face several times since their rematch and sat down for an extended interview before this time.
And Paul has gone as far as to say that KSI hit harder than Mayweather whom he fought over eight rounds in an exhibition bout.

“KSI for sure, for sure. Not indeed a competition, bro,”Paul said on True Geordie’s YouTube channel.
“Floyd Mayweather’s clean shots, I was like,‘Cool, good job.’KSI I am like,‘ Keep my f *** ing face down from those hands’.”
Paul’s youngish family Jake has taken his career in the ring further, winning three fights this time to take his record to 5-0.
He began 2021 by stopped former UFC star Ben Askren in the first round before earning a split decision over Tyron Woodley in August.
He was also due to take on Tommy Fury before this month but the Brit pulled out injured and was replaced by Woodley at two weeks’ notice.
Paul put a concussive end to their contest in the rematch, knocking out the former UFC world champion in the sixth round.
