After defeating AnEsonGib in his debut pro boxing fight, Jake Paul called out rival KSI in a heated staredown that seemed to promise a future match between the two — but things had been quiet regarding this possibility, until now.
After Logan Paul notably lost his rematch against KSI by split-decision, Jake promised revenge against their shared British rival, feeling that his older brother had only lost due to a “bad call.”
With KSI ultimately agreeing to a fight with Jake should he defeat AnEsonGib, the possibility of a bout between the YouTube stars hung on the outcome of Jake’s January 30 match — and now, fans are hoping that the Brit keeps his promise.
Following a quiet two weeks after his win, Jake called out KSI in a video reacting to his fight with AnEsonGib, where he let slip that both he and his rival’s managers will meet next week to discuss plans for a tentative boxing match.
“KSI, think about how much of an embarrassment you are to have said a million times, ‘I will fight him! I will fight him!’ And then not fight me,” Jake exclaimed.
“I know our managers are meeting next week, which is good news. We’ll see what happens. We’ll see how that goes. I don’t know what KSI’s manager is going to say.”
Despite being unsure of the outcome, Paul promised to keep updating his fans on the situation and wants to make the fight happen as soon as possible.
“We’re gonna make this sh*t happen,” he said. “I want it to happen ASAP. I want it to go down, like… I am living for this.
I am so ready, and I need to avenge my brother so badly. I hate how he lost, I hate the way KSI rubbed it in his face and called him a sore loser.”
While KSI has yet to respond to Jake Paul’s callout, coach Viddal Riley has openly advised the YouTuber against another fight.
But with fans’ expectations on the line, only time will tell if there's going to be another chapter of the KSI vs Paul rivalry is in store.
