KSI drops major ‘knock out’ fight prediction for fantasy bout vs Floyd Mayweather Jr

YouTuber-turned-boxer KSI has made a huge claim regarding a potential fight with boxing great Floyd Mayweather Jr.

KSI has boldly claimed that he "would knock out" sporting great Floyd Mayweather Jr if they met in the boxing ring. 

The YouTuber has boxed sporadically since making his in-ring debut in 2018. He has faced fellow influencer Logan Paul twice and his most recent bout came in May against professional boxer Joe Fournier.

KSI was ruled the winner against Fournier on the night, but this bout was overturned into a no-contest as it was decided that the fight ended via an accidental elbow strike.

Mayweather Jr's last professional bout was his crossover fight against UFC icon Conor McGregor in 2017.

Since then, Mayweather Jr has had seven exhibition bouts with Logan Paul and KSI's brother - Deji Olatunji - among his most notable post-retirement opponents.
These exhibitions are easy pay-days for Mayweather Jr, who is now visibly way past his peak. This has given KSI the confidence to proclaim that he would "have a great chance" against one of the best boxers of all-time.
"Honestly, I think I'd knock him out," KSI said.
"I honestly think I have a great chance at beating him. Mayweather, he's a good fighter, I just think I'll have the timing on him."

A bout pitting KSI against Mayweather Jr is not in the works right now as YouTuber has his eyes on Tyson Fury's brother and Love Island star, Tommy Fury.

Tommy is coming off a points victory over Jake Paul and it is hoped that he will face KSI in the UK this summer.

His father - John Fury - thinks this massive fight will be "announced very shortly".

"Well, we're nearly over the line with that one I think," Fury Sr. told Seconds Out. "Me and the Sauerlands, we're nearly over the line with it. I think it'll be announced very shortly.

"Until it's signed off, nothing's done, is it? But I'm happy, we're nearly there. We'll hopefully get it on this year with him and KSI."

On the fight with Tommy, KSI told Misfits Boxing: "I am training for that fight. Negotiations are going back and forth, we're just waiting on Tommy [Fury] essentially.

"I'm training, I'm getting ready for that fight, that's what I want. Because I know as soon as I beat Tommy Fury, Jake Paul's whole career, his whole legacy's in the bin, and I will be laughing."
