British YouTube star, Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji, has confirmed that he is willing to step back into the ring, but this time with Jake Paul – on the condition that the American can overcome his next opponent.
KSI vs. Logan Paul 2 was an unprecedented success for both fighters, with both Olatunji, also known as JJ, and Logan expected to take home over $1 million from the fight alone. The successes of the event have rippled through the YouTube and boxing industry, with plenty of personalities looking to make a headline gig for themselves.
Logan’s brother, Jake, has since taken matters into his own hands by deciding to avenge his brother, as he teased his fans to “stay tuned” in his YouTube video posted on November 13.
Fresh after soaking in the spoils of war, JJ was back to the content creation grind. Answering his fans’ questions through his Discord, the Brit was questioned on whether he’d be looking to fight Jake Paul.
After being confronted by a Logan Paul fan on the fight’s outcome, the Brit was asked by another fan: “After Gib takes Jake’s head off, are you going to fight Jake?”
Without hesitation, KSI responded with: “If Gib loses, then yeah, I’ll fight Jake!"
Ali ‘AnEsonGib’ Gib is reportedly in negotiations to fight the Jake Paul, with boxing promoter, Eddie Hearn, stating: “We're talking, me and everybody else, trying to get it done.”
AnEsonGib previously fought on the KSI vs. Logan Paul undercard, where he earned his first amateur boxing win (by unanimous decision) versus TGF’s Jay Swingler.
Since another rematch between Logan and JJ has already been ruled out, then Jake’s opportunity for retribution will have to be earned.
However, given JJ’s insistence on Jake beating Gib before negotiations even begin, don’t be expecting either party to get into the ring any time soon.
