KSI is set to return to the ring later this year – and former nemesis Logan Paul could make an appearance on the map.
The British YouTube sensation has not stepped into the ring since defeating his former rival-turned-business-partner Paul in their rematch in November 2019.
In a Twitter section, he said: “Look, it’s a possibility, anything is possible.
“Obviously Logan is a great guy, he’s a terrific athlete, he’s a great draw and people would love to see him fight. He’s made it clear that he intends to fight in one capacity or another, so we’ll see what happens.”
KSI – real name Olajide Olatunji – announced his intention to return to the ring just before he was caught by the Sauerland brothers.
And his goal is back-to-back fights with Austin McBroom and Paul’s younger brother. jake.
He said: “In order for me to fight Austin, I have to fight him now to show Jake how much I’ve improved.
“I have to scare him because now if I go and fight Jake, he has all the leverage and can say, ‘I’m the A-side,’ this and that.
“I don’t like that, I have to screw Austin and scare Jake to death, and then it’s like, ‘cool, now we can talk,’ and I’m going to have some influence.
“It’s not going to be ‘I’m the A-side, I want 70 percent,’ now it’s 50-50, you can’t chat, but right now he’s just more active so I can. don’t say too much
“Austin did well, he changed the stance from southpaw to orthodox, I was like ‘s***, okay’, he has good movement you know.
“He will be a tough opponent.”
KSI’s absence from the ring was in large part due to his focus on his music career.
He said: “When you’re in camp, you have to be in the zone and go ‘boxing, boxing, boxing.’ And right now I’m completely out of my mind.
“In order for me to use it I would have to really settle in and focus, but right now I don’t have the time because the music flies for me man.
“I’ve got an album that hopefully goes number one, so many top 5s, top 10s, single after single, and people are still reaching out.”
