Logan Paul shared his latest follower count with his fans, revealing he had broken the 20 million barrier as he prepares to square up to KSI on Saturday night.

The YouTube star amassed over 20 million followers on the site ahead of the much-publicised rematch, and said on his Instagram story: ‘day is off to a good start’.

The number takes him up to almost match KSI, who has 20.6 million followers on the video sharing site.

The pair are guaranteed to make at least $900,000 (£695,000) from their fight on Saturday night, which will take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Their first professional bout is licensed by the California State Athletic Commission, which means a guaranteed amount of money will be given to each fighter on the card for competing.

Logan and KSI reportedly made an estimated £150 million from their first amateur fight in August last year and their purses for their rematch fight have been confirmed as $900,000 (£695,000) each.

Although promoter Eddie Hearn isn’t impressed by the quality of either fighter – and let’s be honest, it’s only the second time each of them have entered the ring – it is set to attract record audiences to watch live.

Their first fight took place at the MEN Arena in Manchester and was available to watch on YouTube, however this fight won’t be streamed on the platform but will be available on Pay-Per-View.

Fans in the UK can watch it on Sky Sports for £9.95, which will include all the fights on the undercard as well.

The fight will start around 8pm Los Angeles time on 9 November, which is 4am in the early hours of 10 November in the UK.

The rematch came about after their amateur bout ended in a draw, and this will be the first time the pair square up against each other without head guards.
