While mentioning all the big events in the arena, Colbert referred to Paul’s boxing match with KSI. The host threw shade at the YouTuber and his loss in the match.
In 2019, Logan Paul went head to head with British YouTuber, KSI
After making his controversial presence felt in the YouTube world, Logan Paul decided to indulge in the boxing world. In his first fight, the British YouTuber, KSI challenged him to a duel. After Logan Paul accepted it, his brother, Jake challenged KSI’s brother. Initially, KSI won the fight and everyone thought it will be behind now. However, Paul made his professional boxing debut and decided to have a rematch with KSI. Despite his second return to the fight with the same opponent, he lost it again. The event was held in Staples Centre. Once again, it was riddled with controversy because of Paul’s insensitive comments about abortion.
According to Paul, his rivalry with KSI is all for show
After their boxing match, many assumed that KSI might be his arch-nemesis. However, Logan Paul has claimed that it is fake and all for show. After losing from KSI, he took to Twitter to clarify his stance about trash talking. Paul said:
“Fair play to JJ – you are one of the toughest people I know, you deserve everything you have. I wish you the best. You had my respect before the fight, you are one of the toughest people I know. I don’t like talking trash, it was all for show, it was all to sell the fight. I have nothing but respect.”
In response to this, his opponent also praised him for being a great fighter and giving him a tough time in the ring.

At this, the audience in the studio roared with laughter. So far, Logan Paul and his team have not responded to the video.
