KSI doubles down on promise to fight Jake Paul on one condition

YouTube sensation JJ ‘KSI’ Olatunji has doubled down on his promise to fight Jake Paul, provided the American can overcome his challenge to defeat AnEsonGib.

YouTubers stepping into the boxing ring and settling their differences has been all the rage since KSI and Joe Weller kicked things off back in February of 2018, before the former kicked it up another notch by defeating his then-rival.

Since then, KSI has remained at the top of the mountain, slugging out a draw in his first fight with Logan Paul before defeating the popular YouTuber in their long-awaited rematch that was held at the Staples Centre. Yet, KSI could very well look to do the double over the Paul family following Jake’s upcoming fight.

While Logan has switched his focus to possibly fighting NFL star Antonio Brown, his brother Jake has stuck in the world of YouTube boxing, getting ready to finally take on AnEsonGib. 

If the Paul brother can beat the popular British YouTuber, he and KSI have already floated the possibility of donning the gloves once again and making another fight happen – which the latter has doubled down on making happen. 

“I don’t like Jake and I think the whole world doesn’t like Jake. If he does manage to get past the big Gibber then yes, I will fight Jake 100%,” he said, per an Instagram post from TheBreadBatch


Offering up a prediction for the fight, though, KSI isn’t all that confident that the Paul brother can live up to his end of the deal by taking down Gib.

“But, I mean, that’s not going to happen (Jake winning),” he added. “I don’t think he’s ready for Gib at all and it’s going to show on January 30th. I see Gib winning this hands down and that will be the end of the Pauls.”

Whether or not KSI will be proven wrong by Jake remains to be seen, but a win from him would be huge, especially considering the back-and-forth leading up the bout.

Fans don’t have all that long to wait, however, as Jake and Gib will square off on Matchroom Boxing’s January 30th event, live from Miami, Florida.
