Barely 24 hours after beating Logan Paul in their much-anticipated boxing rematch, KSI has said that he would “destroy” Canadian pop star Justin Bieber in a boxing match.

Having finally beaten Logan Paul by split decision in a truly entertaining bout, many fans have been questioning who each YouTuber will be fighting next – or if they’ll even take to the ring again at all.

In an interview with UK morning show Good Morning Britain, KSI discussed his emphatic win over Logan Paul and what it means for his individual future, before being asked who he would take on next.

After a draw in their first match, KSI finally got the better of rival Logan Paul in their rematch at the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles.

Although he said he wouldn’t do another fight unless it “made sense”, controversial host Piers Morgan asked whether he would fight Bieber, who had very publicly shared his support for KSI’s rival Logan Paul in the lead-up to the fight and was front-row at the event.

“If Justin Bieber actually wants to fight me, then yeah, obviously, we’ll make it happen,” KSI said. “I’d destroy him. There’s no point. It would be nothing. He doesn’t know how to fight, he doesn’t know how to do anything combat sports, let him just stick to singing.”

Following the discussion, Piers questioned KSI on how much his ego would grow following the win before co-host Susanna Reid suggested that KSI’s next opponent could be Piers Morgan himself – who said KSI is “cruisin’ for a bruisin’.”

The British YouTuber also confirmed that the pay-per-view buying numbers are believed to be over 500,000 now, not including DAZN territories (Austria, Germany, Japan, Switzerland, Canada, Italy, and United States), huge markets where the numbers are expected to far exceed the 1.05 million sales of the first KSI vs. Logan Paul fight.

KSI has been involved in every YouTube boxing event so far, beating Joe Weller in the very first iteration before the entire ordeal stepped up a gear for his initial fight against Logan Paul, and yet another when he took on Paul for their rematch on November 9, 2019.

Needless to say, he has proven himself as a boxer when he needed to, and definitely doesn’t need to step in the ring again – but a fight with one of the biggest artists on the planet may push him back into it.
