KSI vs Jake Paul: Everything we know so far

KSI and Jake Paul square up to each other

The boxing fight that all YouTube fans want looks to be a step closer as Jake Paul looks to have accepted KSI’s proposal to fight on social media.

There have been a lot of fights between influencers over the years, and KSI paved the way for these bouts when he faced Joe Weller in the ring. After KSI won, he brought even more hype to these events by facing Logan Paul in two fights, drawing one and winning the other.

Since then, Logan’s brother Jake has been eager to fight KSI and he has also been making a name for himself in the boxing world by claiming five victories in the ring. One was against KSI’s brother Deji.

Despite KSI having a great relationship with Logan Paul, the hate between Jake Paul and KSI is strong, so it is easy to see why so many are excited to see them fight.
