Logan Paul, the controversial and unleashed YouTuber, takes on rival influencer KSI in an amateur boxing match in Los Angeles on Saturday that is hailed as the & # 39; biggest event in internet history & # 39 ;.
Paul, 24, is best known for his bizarre and sometimes tone-deaf jokes.
For the past two years, he has been criticized for filming a suicide victim in Japan, accused of animal abuse for slandering rats, and conducting a fake marriage in a Las Vegas chapel.
Now the loud-mouthed influencer is ready to rake millions through the fight, which is broadcast on sports streaming giant DAZN.
YouTuber Logan Paul is confronted with calls to undergo a drug test prior to his fight against fellow influencer KSI, which will be the last in his newly launched amateur boxing career. He laughed the criticism away in a recent tweet
Paul has been training for months.
& # 39; I am excited to ruin JJ's face and I want to thank DAZN for giving me the platform to do this.
"I finally get what I wanted from the start – no headwear, 10-ounce gloves and the ability to dismantle the horrific face of JJ in Los Angeles, my hometown," he said in a recent statement about his British opponent.
He also claimed that he had prepared by drinking & # 39; the blood of cows & # 39 ;.
But despite the hours in the gym, fans have questioned his educated physique.
Some even demand that he be tested with medication.
He is usually not disturbed by the criticism.
On Twitter, where he has 5 million followers, he joked: & I hope I have passed my drug test & # 39; under one of the photos that critics had questioned.
On Monday, he was busy praising the special boxes that VIP ticket holders will receive when they attend the contest at the Staples Center on Saturday
He still pushes ticket sales. They start from $ 41 but cost up to $ 725.

Paul apologized for fans and produced a special episode for his YouTube channel where he sat down with people who had considered suicide or lost loved ones after filming a person hanging in the suicide forest of Japan.
He also donated $ 1 million to a charity to prevent suicide.
He later had ads suspended in his account after rats for one video.
Paul was universally slammed for uploading a New Year's Eve video from the & # 39; suicide forest & # 39; from Japan, where he and his friends went camping to laugh. They came across a victim hanging from a tree and then continued to roll, even zooming in on his body
He caused controversy about a month later by asking two rats at his house for another video
Paul's income from 2018 is unknown. In 2017, he earned $ 12 million through ads on his YouTube channel.
The fight on Saturday will bring you $ 190 million. Exactly how much of it he sets to make it unknown.
