KSI confident of fighting Jake Paul, with Eddie Hearn proposing 2021 date

KSI says he wants to fight Jake Paul, with Eddie Hearn proposing that it happens in 2021.

The YouTuber beat Jake’s brother, Logan, in LA in November, having previously fought him in Manchester the year before.

KSI, real name Olajide Olatunji, believes that a bout with the younger sibling would “finish” things between him and the Pauls.

“I’m aiming for Jake. I feel like I need to finish this whole YouTube boxing thing off and he’s the guy that I need to beat,” he told Hearn and Tony Bellew on the Talk The Talk vodcast.

“It’s going to happen. I don’t know when, but it has to happen. That’s the ultimate.

“Everyone’s saying that I don’t need to but life’s about taking risk. I was taking a risk fighting Logan the first time and the second time.”

The two were originally meant to fight after KSI beat fellow YouTuber Joe Weller in 2018, but they ended up fighting each other’s brothers instead.
