Who fans think KSI is boxing as YouTuber announces ring return


After two years away from the ring, YouTuber KSI announced his return to boxing this week.

The internet star first fought British YouTuber Joe Weller in 2019 before defeating Logan Paul in a 2019 rematch. 

On May 4th, the 28-year-old, whose real name is Olajide “JJ” Olayinka Williams Olatunji, took to Twitter to share the exciting news.

“I’m back😈,” he wrote alongside a promotional video that revealed the fight will take place on August 27th.

He didn’t reveal who he’ll be fighting, but fans have some theories…

Alex Wassabi

Most fans are convinced that KSI is fighting 32-year-old American YouTuber Alex Wassabi.

This is because the announcement video that the YouTuber shared on Twitter includes the logos of Showtime and Most Valuable Promotions.

Both of these organisations are advising Alex Wassabi, so many think it was a hint.

The video actually contained stock footage from Showtime’s Paul Woodley all access, but it certainly could be a nod towards Alex.

Fuelling rumours even more, the YouTuber posted a poll on his Instagram Story last week asking who fans wanted him to fight next.

Alongside Bryce Hall, Austin McBroom and Deli, KSI was one of the options.

Austin McBroom

Another possible option could be YouTuber Austin McBroom, who was formerly part of the ACE Family with wife Catherine and their children.

He famously fought American TikToker Bryce Hall in the famous YouTubers vs TikTokers boxing event in June 2021.

Austin defeated Bryce after three rounds at at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida.

Now, many think the YouTuber could be a likely opponent for KSI, but we’ll have to wait and see.

Bryce Hall

Some think that Austin’s opponent Bryce Hall could be the one fighting KSI on August 27th.

He’s only ever had one boxing fight, which was when he was defeated by the YouTuber, and he hasn’t shown any more interest in fighting.

The fight took place after the pair were in an online feud and Bryce decided to challenge him to a match.

However, some think the TikTok star could be making his official return to the ring this summer against KSI.


Other fans think KSI, whose ring name is ‘The Nightmare’, will be taking on his brother Deji.

Deji is KSI’s younger brother and the pair both turned to boxing after their huge YouTube success.

The 25-year-old has taken on Alex Wassabi three times, and been defeated every time, but could he be fighting his own brother next?

This is definitely a less popular option, but not completely impossible.

Jake Paul

Some think KSI could be fighting YouTuber turned boxer Jake Paul, although that’s pretty unlikely.

He already defeated his older brother Logan in November 2019 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, so some fans think he’ll fight his brother next.

However, the boxer is already fighting two weeks before, on August 13th, with rumours that he is taking on Mike Tyson or Tommy Fury.

So, it would be almost impossible for him to have another huge fight so close.
