YouTuber KSI hires Conor McGregor’s chef in lead-up to Logan Paul bout

YouTuber KSI seems to be taking his nutrition seriously as he hires Conor McGregor’s chef ahead of his fight with Logan Paul.

It’s all about that intake, apparently.

In the lead up to his notorious bout with fellow YouTuber Logan, KSI is apparently being fed by boxer Conor’s personal chef, Eric Triliegi.

Logan and KSI are set to take to the Staples Center in Los Angeles on 9 November after their last match ended in a draw – and things are getting serious.

‘When it comes to cooking, we needed to upgrade the nutrition,’ 26-year-old KSI said on DAZN’s 40 Days: Behind-The-Scenes With KSI docuseries.

‘We needed something more performance-based and that’s why we decided to get Eric in.’

Calling it a necessary step to get Conor’s former chef in his kitchen, KSI is focusing on good food that ‘enhances peak performance’.

As Eric cooked up KSI a lean feast, he said: ‘Our main goal is to give fighters food that enhances performance. If we’re not doing that, then why are we even here feeding them?’

Last week Logan spoke out what’s going to happen to the winner of the boxing rematch against KSI – and he’s got some high expectations.

The 24-year-old mentioned being crowned ‘The YouTube King’ and having a ‘long-lasting form of stardom’ as some of the perks he’s hoping for following the match.

‘There’s so much on the line between me and KSI. There is so much on the line. Egos, subscribers, the crown of “The YouTube King”,’ he said.

‘The last match was a draw. If the W is secured in a monumental way, something similar to when Conor McGregor knocked out Jose Aldo, if something like that happens, it is going to be long-lasting form of stardom.’

However, KSI’s definitely not slacking, after he filmed himself training with heavy-weight champ Anthony Joshua, before his trainer Viddal Riley showed him dunking himself in a freezing ice bath.

Time will tell.
