British YouTube sensation, Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji, has slammed Logan Paul’s appeal to the California State Athletic Commission, stating that the American “can’t handle losing.”

On November 17, Paul revealed that he had filed an official appeal to the Commission, due to the two-point deduction given for an illegal blow to the back of the Brit’s head.

Following his split decision victory versus Logan Paul on November 9, KSI has been lapping up the post-fight antics from the American’s camp.

After creating a series of videos in the wake of the fight, Olatunji, also known as JJ, has released nine-minute long video titled: “Logan Paul Is A Sore Loser,” in which he details exactly why he believes the appeal will favor himself. 

KSIOlajidebt (Twitter).KSI filmed the video for ‘Down Like That’ mere days after locking horns with Logan.

Starting out by addressing Logan, KSI prefaced by saying: “You just couldn’t take the L, could you?” Before going on to add: “So, Logan, in this video I’m going to show you why your appeal is going to fall flat!”

JJ analyzed the first three rounds collectively, where he went on to detail how “round one to three was all me.” 

Ending with the third round, the Brit also described how his knockdown from the third round should have counted, in-light of the referee clocking this as Logan slipping. After showing Logan’s reaction immediately post-fight, JJ asked: “So, was it a slip or a knockdown, Logan? You tell me.”

KSI’s explanation starts at 2:54 for mobile users.

KSI then went on to shed light on Logan’s illegal knockdown. While replaying the stint that saw Logan stripped of two points from his round four score, he dubbed it “dirty and illegal.”

“On top of that, you did even more dirty and illegal moves! You hit me in the back of the head (twice) when I was down,” KSI said. “So can you please tell me why you are trying to appeal the ref’s decision to take away two points from you?”

On top of questioning Paul’s shots, he added: “If I’d have told the ref that I couldn’t continue after being hit in the back of the head (while I was down)… You could have easily just been disqualified!”

JJ conceded round 5, chalking it up to the recovery needed after Logan’s foul play from the previous round. Moreover, he left round 6 “up for debate” since the scrap between the pair left them both at a loose end. 

KSI closed out by ridiculing Logan’s appeal. “You know what would be funny is if the Commission decided to take action and remove your knockdown and include my knockdown,” he said. “Because then I would win by unanimous decision and you would look (like) even more of an idiot.”

Before ending the video, he addressed Logan directly by saying: “You will forever be known as the person that lost to KSI… You are a loser, so accept it.”

Jake Paul has already set his sights on new boxing opponents such as Conor McGregor, Dillon Danis and even his brother Logan Paul, after his impressive second round K.O. victory over former NBA star Nate Robinson.

Following the highly anticipated Tyson vs Jones Jr boxing card on November 28, YouTube star Jake Paul came away from the night as one of the biggest winners after his win over Nate Robinson went viral.

The Calabasas-based content creator put on a strong performance in the co-main event with a knockout in the second round, moving to a 2-0 record as a professional boxer, and immediately began issuing challenges for his next bout.

Conor McGregor was one of the fighters Jake Paul challenged to a boxing fight.

During the post-fight interview, Jake Paul revealed that he would soon be looking to take a step up in competition after his time off, even challenging some of the biggest MMA stars in the world.

He explained that he would be interested in taking on Conor McGregor, a two-division UFC champion, as well as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu star and undefeated Bellator fighter, Dillon Danis, who he has had an ongoing feud with.

“I’m taking this seriously,” Paul explained, predicting KO victories over both athletes, “There’s a long list of opponents that I want. Conor McGregor, Dillon Danis, I’m going to knock them both out.”

While many viewers claimed it could be too soon for Jake to take on life-long fighters, he also shared a list of other content creators he’d like to meet in the ring, including his brother Logan Paul and YouTube rival KSI.

“There’s my brother, there’s KSI on the line, Austin McBroom.” he admitted, “I want to be in this sport a long time. I’m in love with it, so why not.”

KSI was quick to respond to the challenge, claiming that he was not impressed with Jake’s performance on the night, even though he had earned multiple knockdowns during the bout.

Whether he will get to fight any of these stars in the coming months remains unclear, but he has certainly generated a lot of hype around his name following his impressive win.
