YouTube superstar Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji has stated he is “bored” of waiting to set a date to rematch boxing rival Logan Paul in the United States, calling for the fight to go down in the UK once again – next year.
After knocking out Joe Weller in his boxing debut, KSI squared off against Paul after months of trash talk on August 25, 2018 in the Manchester Arena – generating over 1.05 million pay-per-view buys worldwide on YouTube and their official website.
The bout ended in a majority draw, two judges scored the contest 57-57 and one favored KSI 58-57, making a rematch inevitable to truly settle who is the boxing king of YouTube.
However, there have been no developments for almost a year on when the next match up will take place, with KSI confirming he would be willing to travel to enemy territory to fight but prefers Dubai as a neutral venue.
Now, the Sidemen star has expressed his frustrations with arranging the fight in the US and called for his opponent to accept another showdown on British shores, at the 02 Arena in London next year.
If this fight doesn’t happen in the US by the end of the year, then lets bring it back to the U.K. and fight at the 02 next year @LoganPaul— KSI (@KSIOlajidebt) June 16, 2019
KSI suggested planning the event went off without a hitch in the UK, but nothing has happened in regard to setting a time and place in the States.
The 25-year-old claimed he is “bored” of waiting and took shots at the previous fight’s judging, suggesting that “everyone knew Logan Paul lost the fight that night”, goading his rival to rise the challenge of another UK face off.
Whenever it was in the U.K. the fight actually got sorted. As soon as it’s in the US, nothing FUCKING happens. I’m bored now. So lets have this rematch in the U.K. already cos you know and everyone else knows you lost the fight that night @LoganPaul— KSI (@KSIOlajidebt) June 16, 2019
Shut the fuck up. You guys don’t know how to even create a boxing event. You’ve been talking to a few organisers to set this whole thing up since you can’t do it and nothing has happened still. YOURE USELESS. WE GET SHIT DONE IN THE UK https://t.co/VKZhOssgim— KSI (@KSIOlajidebt) June 16, 2019
It was recently announced that KSI had signed with popular energy drink company G FUEL and the Brit couldn’t resist taking a jab at Paul during his own video revealing the partnership, knocking out a Paul lookalike.
Whether KSI can replicate the feat against his American foe, remains to be seen.
