Jake Paul has suggested that he would someday like to go one-on-one with Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji in the boxing ring, after defeating his YouTube rival Joe Weller. 

KSI has been strongly linked towards another bout with his Jake's brother, Logan Paul, for quite some time, after their highly anticipated clash in August 2018 ended in a draw. 

However, Jake has now confirmed that he would only clash with the man his brother couldn't beat, as long as there's a repeat of what was dubbed as the biggest white collar boxing match of all time.

Who would come out on top between KSI and Jake Paul?

After successfully defeating Weller in the squared circle, he was asked whether or not he thought KSI only wants to fight him because he would have a better chance of winning. "Exactly, 100 percent" was his response. 

Jake Paul also discussed potential opponents that he could face in the meantime, seemingly edging towards other YouTubers that have a bigger reach - and he's not talking in boxing terms. 

(For mobile readers, the post-match interview starts at the 3:45 mark in the video below)

"He doesn't have enough clout," he responded YouTuber AnEsonGib's name was mentioned, but Paul certainly seemed interested in one particular opponent - Deandre Cortez ‘Soulja Boy’. 

"I really want to lock down the Soulja Boy thing, though. I think he needs money," he said, before breaking into laughter. "Yeah, he needs a cheque."

KSI was quick to respond to the comments on Twitter, suggesting that he will soon release a video review of Weller's recent defeat. 

Whether or not we will see Jake Paul - or even Logan Paul - take on KSI in the near future remains to be seen, but it will be interesting to see how the latter responds in his response video. Will he issue a challenge?
