Jake Paul has been sent a clear message by British YouTuber and potential boxing rival KSI.
KSI previously had two fights – one amateur and one professional – with Jake’s older brother Logan Paul, with the Briton coming out victorious in a second fight after a draw in the first.
KSI has not fought since that win in 2019, having stated that he had no plans to make a return to boxing as he focused on his career.
However, he has sent a message to Paul, stating that would ‘slap him up’ if they were to ever meet in the ring.
On his YouTube channel, he said: “I will to this day tell you that I still feel like I can beat Jake Paul.
“I don’t care if he knocks out all these people. Styles make fights and I know my style would slap up Jake Paul.”
KSI is one of the most-watched YouTubers on the planet, boasting a huge subscriber base of over 40 million across his two personal channels.
He has not been in the ring or discussed fighting since his victory over Logan, but has recently been seen with former boxing coach Viddal Riley – with fans wondering about a potential return to boxing.
Paul had previously named a 13-man hit-list of fighters he had wanted to challenge before he retires – which included KSI.
Paul’s first ever professional fight had come against KSI’s brother, Deji, which he won via TKO.
The American has gone on to win five times in his professional career – the latest coming against former UFC champion Tyron Woodley in an emphatic knockout after Tommy Fury pulled out of a planned fight.
