After almost three years away from the ring, KSI will return to the boxing world in late August.
The YouTube sensation last fought in November 2019, fighting Logan Paul in LA. His last bout ended in victory, as KSI lasted six rounds with Logan Paul before eventually taking the win on a split decision. It was of a course a rematch of the first tie between the pair which ended in a draw.
KSI is yet to confirm where his next fight will take place. Nor is it clear who the Englishman will be taking on in the ring. Many suspected KSI would be looking to take on Jake Paul, who beat his brother Deji on the undercard to KSI and Logan Paul’s bout. However, Logan’s younger brother already has a fight scheduled for August 13th.
Again, it’s not clear who Jake Paul is fighting either. Rumours suggest the American will be taking on Tommy Fury after the original date of their fight had to be moved forward. Fury was suffering from a severe chest infection and a broken rib so couldn’t fight Paul last November.
So, who else could KSI be facing in his next fight?
Who's Next for KSI?
Many fans are convinced KSI will be taking on Alex Wassabi. The American YouTuber released an Instagram poll in May asking fans who he should fight next and one of those options was ‘Big Deji aka KSI.’ He also didn’t rule out a rematch with Deji himself, who he beat on his boxing debut earlier this year.
We know that KSI will be returning to the ring shortly after he revealed his intention to partake in a bout in late August at the start of May. With the proposed date of the bout not too far away, one would expect the 28-year-old will be announcing his opponent very soon.
