French YouTuber IbraTV has called out KSI for a boxing match after his draw with Logan Paul, after saying he has “started to hate KSI”.
Ibra, who has over 3 million subscribers, is one of the most popular French YouTubers, is best known for his prank, ‘social experiments’ and ‘hidden camera’ videos, but is also a keen fighter.
More recently, he began to organize MMA fights and he even fought against a French professional Muay Thai champion.
Next, he is setting his sights on KSI, who is now two fights deep into his boxing career. Ibra claims to be angered by KSI’s disrespectful comments towards Logan Paul’s family and girlfriend, made in the UK press conference.
Explaining his issue with KSI, he says he initially wanted to challenge Logan Paul, but that he had “started to hate KSI”.
“I just have a message to pass, I wanted to fight against Logan Paul, but after seeing his video, I started to hate KSI, he is all talk. Winner when it comes to talking, but in real life, you’re a loser.”
Later, he also offered his help to Logan Paul to beat KSI in their first fight:
“If you want, I’m coming with you to beat this guy. Send me a message on Instagram and I’ll come with no problem.”
After the fight ended, with the judges ruling it a majority draw and a rematch being set for early 2019, Ibra doubled down on his beef with KSI, in a video posted to Twitter.
“France represented by IbraTV against England represented by KSI, imagine a little fight. But for that, you have to retweet en masse, even the big YouTubers, like Squeezie, who do not like me.
If ever I have the opportunity to represent France, I will give everything for England to be at our feet. In order to show the world that we are fighters and that we are not only strong in football. I hope the fight will take place.”

KSI hasn’t yet acknowledge Ibra’s offer for a bout, and with the rematch vs Logan Paul expected to take place in February, he will need to prepare for that first.
However, there is no doubt that more YouTube boxing matches will take place in the future, given the track record now of two successful events, first KSI vs Joe Well, and then the Paul brothers vs KSI and his younger brother, Deji.
