Jake Paul ain’t just training for his superfight with YouTube star Deji by pummeling his friends in his living room boxing ring … he tells TMZ Sports he’s getting LEGIT coaching from “Sugar” Shane Mosley too!
We got the Internet sensation (and his smokin’ hot GF, Erika Costell) leaving his MMA gym in the Valley on Monday when he revealed one of boxing’s all-time greats is giving him pointers.
He says there are others in his corner as well — including his own version of Mr. Miyagi — all getting him ready for the Aug. 25 fight that could be bigger than McGregor-Mayweather.
As for the fight’s atmosphere … Jake’s not worried about facing a hostile UK crowd — telling us he and big bro Logan Paul have a plan for how to turn them against Deji and KSI.
It’s boxing – but not as we know it.
YouTube sensation KSI has signed terms on a two-fight deal with fellow social media star Logan Paul.
KSI called out his controversial fellow social media star after his win over Joe Weller in London and Paul released a video on YouTube accepting the challenge.
Paul, who has more than 16million subscribers on YouTube, hit the headlines earlier this year when he filmed a suicide victim during a trip to Japan’s ‘suicide forest’.
He has since apologised and is expected to trade leather with KSI who enjoys a YouTube fanbase of over 18m.

The fight will take place on August 25, from 7pm.
