It will be the second time the pair will have fought each other, with the rematch taking place around a year after a similar bout in Manchester last year drew huge numbers.

A press conference to promote the clash, which is being promoted by Eddie Hearn, ended in farce on Monday night with the pair flinging crass insults at each other throughout.

What happened at the press conference?

Last night's press conference descended into chaso with both fighters hurling outrageous and bizarre insults at one another.

Logan mocked KSI for having a small penis by bringing on a pack of condoms for "little peckers", insulted him for having five abortions, threatened to kiss his "mum on the cheek" and give his opponent a "wet willy on his belly button".

At one point the American also made a bizarre reference to World War II, saying: "All the support we gave you in World War II and this is how you return the favour?

"Winston Churchill would be ashamed."

KSI hit back by saying: "I have no respect for Logan Paul, I can't wait to finish you off.

"You used a dead dog for views, a dead guy for views; is there anything you won't use for views? Maybe your career once I'm done with it.

"November 9th you'll see all your boxing ability is going to go out of the window and you are going to be finished. I'm going to finish him, I'm going to make him suffer slowly."

At one point, the crowd at the press conference chanted other slurs such as "suck your mum" and another about Donald Trump.
