KSI plans on using his fight with Logan Paul as a stepping stone to a professional boxing career and make it the worst year if his fellow YouTuber’s life in the process.
The two internet superstars are due to step into the ring on August 25 at the Manchester Arena, England, and KSI’s confidence is at an all time high.
Speaking to TMZ, the YouTuber said “I want this to be the worst year of his life, 100%. Pretty much, I want to squeeze every bit of relevancy from him and then move on to my bigger goal, which is to go pro and be a professional fighter”.

When asked whether the dislike that he has expressed is legitimate, KSI stated “I think his ego needs to be put down, like right down. He thinks he’s the shit and I’m about to fuck him up and literally put him in his place”.
KSI has fought in one ameteur boxing match, beating Joe Weller, another popular YouTuber, handily in what quickly became one of the biggest events in YouTube’s history and broke records as the biggest white collar boxing event in history.
While it might seem like a far fetched idea for an individual to go professional in boxing after just two ameteur fights and a year of training, KSI has a record of finding success in whatever he turns his attention to.
The 25-year-old, who has over 19 million subscribers on YouTube, believes it would be an “amazing story to have a YouTubing gamer, a FIFA gamer back in the day, who would never look at boxing, is now able to train for a year and a bit and literally be a professional boxer. I think that would be a huge story”.
If KSI’s day on August 25 ends with his hand held aloft, there’s no knowing what the future might hold.
