Popular YouTuber JJ ‘KSI’ Olatunji has claimed that rapper Daniel ‘Dax’ Nwosu Jr. backed out of a potential boxing match, despite him agreeing and meeting a number of lavish demands made by the Canadian.

The pair got into a heated argument on Twitter back in February, when Dax told KSI to stop mentioning his name in videos or else he would fly to London to confront him.

When Olatunji invited the rapper over to the United Kingdom for a boxing match, Dax then posted a list of demands that would have to be met if the fight was really going to take place.

KSI challenged the rapper to a fight.

Included in Nwosu’s demands were first class flights to London, accommodation in a five-star hotel and a luxury vehicle with “IT’S DAX” written on the license plate to transport him from the airport.

In a new video uploaded on March 10, KSI reacted to memes posted on his subreddit by his fans and claimed that Dax turned down the fight even though he met his demands.

“For real, you know Dax was not expecting me to meet his demands,” said KSI. “I was like, alright send me your details.”

KSI then pretended to be Dax, putting on a frightened expression before saying: “Wait, what?”

Clip starts at 2:18 for mobile users.

While it seems unlikely that KSI will square off against Dax inside the boxing ring, it does seem likely that he will take on one of the Paul brothers – although not the one you might have expected.

KSI has said that Jake Paul has “blown his chance,” and suggested he may take on Logan’s brother Jake instead.


KSI calls out Jake Paul after YouTuber KO’s Nate Robinson in boxing bout

It’s been no time at all, but Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji has already called out Jake Paul ahead of their prospective bout at Madison Square Garden, saying that after his performance against Nate Robinson, Paul stands no chance.

It was the fight everyone had their eyes on November 28. On the undercard of Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr, YouTuber Jake Paul was set to bout with NBA star Nate Robinson.

What we got instead was a bloodbath. Robinson was trounced by Paul, getting knocked down multiple times before Paul laid the final blow in the second round. Robinson barely laid a glove on Paul despite coming out all guns blazing.

While millions watched, there was one spectator on the sidelines with more on the line than most ⁠— Jake Paul’s next prospective opponent, KSI.

The YouTuber has already faced off against Paul’s older brother Logan, beating the American not once but twice. Jake fancies his chances a little bit better, but KSI wasn’t impressed by the younger brother’s skills against Robinson.

As soon as the fight ended, KSI already started the war back up with the Pauls. “I saw nothing special from Jake lol. Soon come,” he said on Twitter.

The thinly-veiled threat at Jake Paul is alluding to their prospective bout at Madison Square Garden, pending the current global situation.

Paul has been pretty vocal about making sure the fight goes ahead, saying he has a point to prove against the British YouTuber. “KSI vs Jake Paul is 100% gonna happen. If I die without that happening, I would be so upset. It has to happen, for the culture,” he said in September.

While Paul didn’t direct address KSI post-fight ⁠— instead calling out Conor McGregor for a bout ⁠— the rivalry between the two YouTubers is fierce.

One can only hope they do actually make good on their promise and get in the ring.
