VIDDAL RILEY. That’s a name Boxing News readers will recognise from domestic national championships. However, to others he’s the boxing trainer of Youtuber KSI. A Youtuber with almost 19 million subscribers, who in February 2018 beat fellow UK Youtuber Joe Weller in a boxing exhibition, in front of a sold out Copper Box arena with over 25 million people viewing the bout.
The two were introduced through mutual friends, became a team and have since been training for another all Youtuber fight, this time against American Logan Paul, himself owner of a channel with just under 18 million subscribers.
And here Riley’s professional boxing career began, with a story more bizarre than the thought of KSI and Weller selling out the Copper Box arena.
