KSI: I need to f*** Jake Paul up

Back in November 2019, Olajide Olayinka Williams “JJ” Olatunji aka KSI defeated Logan Paul in a professional boxing match, which remains his sole appearance as a pugilist to date. However, the YouTuber has turned his attention to Logan’s younger brother.

Both Logan and Jake Paul have been coming off as the latest big faces in boxing, although the latter has gained more prominence for turning professional and for his “Problem Child” persona.

Amidst landing fights against former NBA star Nate Robinson and then multi promotion mixed martial arts champion Ben Askren, Jake has remained undefeated in all three of his pro bouts so far and is yet to determine his next opponent.

Nonetheless, the 24-year-old is often making headlines, mostly for his out of the ring histrionics which includes a tussle against Floyd Mayweather, who is slated to face Logan up next in an exhibition match, and even UFC star Tyron Woodley, who called the YouTuber a “culture vulture” recently.

“Jake is still thriving and it pisses me off,” says KSI

Meanwhile, KSI, whose fight against Logan one and a half years ago at the Staples Center ended in a controversial split decision victory, has called out Jake and is willing to thrash the younger of the Paul brother as well.

“I’m going to fight Jake Paul, I want to fight Jake. There’s a part inside of me that feels like I need to f— him up,” said KSI.

While Logan was a far easier opponent, KSI acknowledges that Jake will be a tougher foe in the squared circle, provided that he has won all three of his pro fights by early knockouts so far.

All in all, Jake’s success in the ring has been grinding KSI’s gears, and he aims to put a stop to the American’s dream run with the boxing gloves.

“I know he’s gonna be harder than Logan, but I’m knocking him out,” KSI went on, “Jake is still thriving and it pisses me off. Soon I will be the one to end this all.”

Jake Paul recently parted ways with Triller Fight Club and signed a multi fight deal with Showtime boxing. However, his next opponent this year is yet to be determined, and if all cards are played right, KSI may have his chance to pick the second Paul sibling as well.
