YouTuber and celebrity boxer Olajide Olayinka Williams “JJ” Olatunji aka KSI has set his gaze on a potential ‘super fight’ with MMA superstar Conor McGregor, only after he settles the score with Jake Paul.
KSI and Jake- two of the biggest names in celebrity boxing, are in conversations for a forthcoming bout. The two have been taking shots at one another ever since KSI locked horns with Jake’s older brother Logan Paul. The two have thumbed up to step inside the squared circle sometime in next year in Wembley.
‘The Nightmare’ will be seen in action on August 27th- not once, but twice on the same event, as the Briton takes on Swarmz and Lucas Alcaraz Pineda in two three round cruiserweight contests at the O2 Arena, billed as 2 Fights 1 Night. The event will kick off with KSI vs Swarmz on the undercard, and the Watford native will return once again in the main event against Pineda. His younger brother Deji Olatunji is also featured on the card, taking on Fousey.
While his next goal remains ‘The Problem Child’, the 29-year-old is looking beyond his American rival, and hopes for a mega encounter with none other than the former UFC double champ, ‘The Notorious’ himself.
“My main goal when it comes to boxing is Jake Paul, to finish Jake Paul,” said KSI, as per talkSPORT. “After I’ve finished Jake Paul, I think it’s just… I’ll decide what I want to do then. I might retire and hang up the gloves or I might decide that I want to do a super fight with someone like Conor McGregor.”
“It’s one of them things where it all depends on who else is there fighting, just whatever makes sense. Right now, my goal is Jake Paul and Jake Paul only,” he added.
“Once I finish Jake Paul, I’ll decide what to do next after that.”
