The pair boxed last August in Manchester where they sold 800,000 PPV buys with their combined 37 million subscribers on the video platform.

While the first fight was an amateur scrap, they have now signed professional deals meaning they will fight without headgear.

Fears over the dangers of blows to the head have been magnified in recent weeks following the tragic death of American Patrick Day.

He became one of at least four boxers to die this year from injuries suffered during a match.

And Paul suggests that he can see exactly why boxing goes "hand-in-hand" with brain damage.

Speaking on his SnapChat, he said: "Sparring is a fast track to success because you get good quicker. However, it’s dangerous.

“It’s very taxing on the body. You’re getting hit in the head constantly.

I don’t know if you can tell, but I think I’m already suffering from it.

"Boxing is a sport that goes hand-to-hand with brain damage. I don’t know if you can tell, but I think I’m already suffering from it."

Paul went onto add that he is in much better shape than last year and expects to finish the job once and for all.

He added: "I got tired last year, but I don’t think anyone can tell me KSI is a better boxer than me. That’s just not facts and I’m a man of facts.

“This year, the conditioning’s improving and the relaxation is improving. That’s why I got tired last year, the adrenaline was rushing."

The American has opened up about his training tactics as he bids to turn KSI into a "sad meme".

He said: "I have been practising with heavier gloves so when I put the smaller ones on, I will be like lightning.
