Justin Bieber has made it clear who he’s rooting for in the Logan Paul-KSI YouTube boxing rematch. Now, KSI has made it clear what he thinks of Bieber.

“Fuck you, Justin,” KSI said when asked by TMZ for his comments about Bieber’s backing of his YouTube rival. “Fucking suck on my dick.”

Last month, Paul, who had a controversial draw with KSI in their first fight last year but who’s still a betting favorite in their rematch that will be streamed exclusively on DAZN, posted the #KSILoganPaul2 hashtag to his Instagram page last month. Bieber responded by saying “Rip his head off.”

That comment made KSI go into hysterics.

“I fucking died,” KSI told TMZ. “If anything, I thought it was cool as hell. Justin Bieber actually knows me, fam. That’s ridiculous. … Justin Bieber knows about me and wants my head ripped off. If anything, it’s going to be more funny when I knock out Logan. I hope Justin Bieber is going to be ringside, so after I knock out Logan, I can go up to him and be like, ‘Uh, so whose head was going to get ripped off? You prick.’”

After a raucous and raunchy press conference last month to announce the Nov. 9 fight card—which also includes super middleweight world titlist Billy Joe Saunders and rising star Devin Haney on the undercard—it was announced this week that a second press conference will be held in London on Monday.

It’s almost assured that more trash-talking between KSI and Paul will ensue. Bieber, meanwhile, hasn’t commented on KSI’s response.
