KSI and Logan Paul came face to face for the first time since fighting in August last year.

In the first bout, records were broken as the pair of YouTubers - and at the time, amateur boxers, fought to a majority draw in what was dubbed the “Biggest Internet Event in History”.

Both men said they were disappointed in the trash talking the other had to offer, but ultimately what will matter is what happens in the ring on 9 November. Recap on the press conference below.

They are face to face talking trash, with the voice of Shannon Briggs in the background repeatedly saying 'you've got it champ, he almost got knocked out the first time champ'.

Here they are.

Now goes Eddie Hearn, who has promised someone will be knocked out and claimed he won't be talking to much pre-fight because the fighters can take care of it themselves.

Shannon Briggs is somewhat stealing the limelight here, interrupting the speech to trash talk KSI's team.

"I know you ain't got this champ, I already know that champ."

Now DAZN's executive vice president Joe Markowski is on the mic, saying he's 'surprised by the negative backlash the fight has received'.

The mic has been handed to Shannon Briggs.

"I told Logan camp doesn't really start until you see him at the press conference, now it starts. He went into another man's back yard, his first fight and was amazing. Now we home. My boy is going to be more prepared than ever. I'm giving you a guarantee Logan Paul is going to knock that man [KSI] out. Let's go champ."
