YouTube superstar Olajide ‘KSIOlajideBT’ Olatunji has suggested that his next boxing fight will take place against Jake Paul, the brother of his previous opponent – Logan Paul.

In August 2018 KSI and Logan Paul fought one another in a pay-per-view boxing match streamed via YouTube, in what became the largest non-professional boxing fight of all time. The match ended controversially with a majority draw, 57-57.

There had originally been a rematch planned at an undetermined venue in the United States, but clashes over contracts and availability since the original fight have cast doubt on this.

ReutersThe previous fight became the largest white-collar boxing event ever.

Since then, KSI has put numerous YouTube videos up stating he is looking for a different opponent, and he now seems to have officially offered the fight to someone else: Logan’s younger brother, Jake Paul.


Jake, who beat KSI’s younger brother Deji Olatunji on the undercard in August, was called out on Twitter following a tweet from Logan Paul, who was speculating that KSI would “skurt the rematch”.

This prompted KSI to respond, arguing that Logan Paul had missed his chance for a rematch and that he would prefer to fight Jake, in order to “avenge my bro”.

The revelation comes amid long lasting speculation that the rematch will not take place, with KSI even suggesting he’d want to fight rapper Dax after the two had a heated exchange on social media.


Now, it appears to be confirmed that KSI is looking elsewhere for an opponent, going as far as to tweet Jake Paul by name, offering him the “main event” and asking Jake to prove that he is “trash” – in response to comments made by the American on the ‘Impaulsive’ podcast.

The exchange has caused a large-scale Twitter dispute between Logan and KSI, with the two going on to swap personal insults on the social media platform. On top of the Twitter trade-offs, KSI appeared on the March 8 edition of YouTube news show ‘Drama Alert’ – talking to host Daniel ‘Keemstar’ Keem about the potential fight.


KSI said that “if he’s [Jake Paul] actually serious about wanting to fight me, then I’m down,” while Keemstar himself indicated that he would prefer to see Jake fight KSI as opposed to a rematch with Logan.
