After losing by TKO to Jake Paul in a 'battle of the brothers' on the undercard of the Logan Paul vs. KSI fight, Deji is apparently ready to hop back in the ring.
The younger brother of KSI, Deji started out strong in the bout against the older Paul brother, bloodying Jake’s nose in the first couple rounds before eventually losing by TKO in the fifth.
Now Deji wants to take on Youtuber Alex Wassabi. The feud started when Deji made a video calling out Alex’s breakup with longtime girlfriend LaurDIY as “fake.”
Alex responded on Twitter saying he would knock Deji out if he ever said Lauren’s name again.
yo @deji. make all the desperate for views vids u want about me but if u even speak laurens name again I’ll end u. not a threat bruv it’s a promise. say one more thing about us & next time I see u Im knocking ur pathetic untalented ass out. stay in ur bros shadow where u belong

As Alex should have guessed, Deji promptly said Lauren’s name as many times as he could in 240 characters.
Lauren finally realised what a waste of space you truely are. Lauren can now finally grow as a better person now that she’s away from you. Lauren is finally out to get some better dick haha. Lauren, Lauren...Lauren https://t.co/V14vFq0cqp

Now the tension has escalated with Deji calling out Alex directly through a six-minute rant on his channel.
“My brother literally said he was going to pay for your flight to come out here, and you literally declined it, because you are a pussy,” Deji said. “You’ll make up an excuse and say ‘I’m too good for you’ or ‘my fans don’t like it when I’m in drama.’ You’re full of shit, you’re a bitch.”
Strong words for a guy who is 0-1 in his professional boxing career but Alex doesn’t have nearly the same reach Jake Paul did and - just from side-by-side comparison - if this fight were to happen, I would say Deji is definitely the favorite.
