Logan Paul is drinking "the blood of cows" to beef up for his fight
Ahead of the upcoming rematch, Logan Paul has said he’s drinking cow blood to prepare to demolish his opponent, KSI.
Logan Paul, self-proclaimed YouTuber turned professional boxer has already stated he wants to pursue a career in fighting, most likely MMA, after (hopefully) beating KSI. A recent chat with Business Insider however makes it sound more likely the star wants to follow in the footsteps of Charlie Sheen than any boxer Hall of Famer.
Okay so it’s not drinking tiger blood (Google it) like Sheen did but Paul has said in preparation for his fight that he’s drinking the blood of cows. The 24-year old revealed that “They’re making a machine out of me,”
“I’m eating 80lbs (36kg) a day. I’m drinking the blood of cows and I’m pushing a lot of weights up in the air and putting them down.”
The American has shown a similar level of perplexing confidence in the past, at a recent press conference he explained: "I relied on my athleticism to carry me through the first fight and it almost worked; but now I am a boxer, I am literally a professional fighter and I feel like it.”
KSI and Paul had their first boxing match in the autumn of 2018, ending in a draw. Since that event, which raked in millions of dollars and viewers, both the young internet personalities have been tirelessly training, with KSI showing himself to be pumping serious iron over in Las Vegas.
KSI too is looking to go into some kind of fighting career after his bout with Paul, though he’s considering WWE rather than boxing or MMA. At the same press conference, KSI revealed: "I would [also] try WWE. I wouldn't mind WWE, I’ve done a bit of wrestling, so you never know.”
Their rematch is set to take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, after the first fight took place in Manchester, UK. Whereas the first fight had protective headgear, this time round it’s a far more professional affair with no headgear, lighter gloves and all round more distain for one another.
Paul has gone on record as saying it’s “going to be super violent” and has even challenged The Notorious himself after he’s done with KSI.
The boxing rematch will take place on November 9 at the Staples Center, being streamed on DAZN’s dedicated service.
