YouTube star KSI has posted his response to the ShowStar influencer boxing event that took place this weekend… and he’s not happy with his little brother Deji’s performance.
When it comes to influencer boxes, it’s safe to say that KSI is one of the few developers who have pushed the trend.
KSI’s fights against long-time rival Logan Paul and his fight with Brit Joe Weller sparked a viral fad, leading influencers around the world to settle their differences in the ring.
Notably, KSI’s younger brother, Deji, had his first-ever boxing match against Jake Paul during KSI vs. Logan Paul in August 2018 – a fight that Deji ended up losing.
Deji went on to pick up a second loss to Vinnie Hacker in the YouTubers vs. TikTokers 2021 boxing showdown, which gave him a 0-2 record.
Hoping to finally score a W, Deji took on YouTuber Alex Wassabi for ShowStar Boxing’s UK vs. USA influencer boxing event on March 5… but that too proved a defeat for the influencer.
Two days after the fight, big brother KSI addressed the matter in a heated YouTube video, saying he was “disappointed” in his little brother’s third boxing loss in as many fights.
It’s a back and forth in the Main Event!

KSI slams Deji for boxing loss from Alex Wassabi
“Deji, I’m disappointed,” KSI began. “That’s how I feel honestly, man. I’m sorry if you don’t want to hear that, but it’s the truth.”
“I won’t lie to you – I expected more from you,” he continued. “First of all, tactically, how did you ever think you were going to win this fight? How was the game plan? You are the smaller fighter, you have a shorter range.”
“You can fool your audience, Deji, but you can’t fool me. You just didn’t do enough.”
KSI made no secret of his dislike for Alex Wassabi before slamming the video Deji posted after the fight – in which he notably said he wanted to keep boxing – and said it “upset him”.

KSI’s comments follow claims of a “rigged” fight on the ShowStar boxing card that FaZe Temperrr appealed after losing his fight to King Kenney.
