KSI will be facing the toughest test of his career on the 14th of October; Jake Paul was known as the most difficult challenge in the YouTube scene, but after Tommy Fury beat Jake Paul via split decision, the tables have turned, and Tommy Fury is now entitled as the king of 'influencer/YouTube boxing'
Which is why if KSI wins against Tommy Fury, it would automatically prove that he's better than Jake Paul. This means only a loss to Tommy Fury could lead to Jake Paul vs KSI. The magnitude of the event would be incomprehensible, and it would be a shame for that match to never take place as fans worldwide have been looking up to it for the past few years.
KSI would '80%' call it quits from the sport of boxing forever if he wins against Tommy.
KSI on his boxing retirement
Recently on The MMA Hour, KSI shared his thoughts on the Tommy Fury fight and explained how it could be his last boxing match.
"[Jake Paul is] trying to nullify the fight between me and Tommy Fury, saying it's an exhibition fight even though everything about the fight is pro," KSI said, as quoted by boxingscene.com. "It's a pro fight, the only difference is it's not the British Boxing Board of Control governing the event it's the PBA, it's a completely different governing body.
Just because it isn't on Boxrec doesn't mean it doesn't exist." "I'd say eighty percent [that I retire after this], I've been trying to fight Jake for how long? And it's just constant excuses and then it's crazy, he tries to manipulate the audience to make it look like it's my fault, that I'm the one that's afraid to fight Jake, when I'm there like, 'No.
KSI further said :Let's go. Let's do it, finally.' "I've got legacy tattooed on my back. This is why I do what I do. It's the final piece of the puzzle and he doesn't want to give it to me, so I'm like, alright, cool, let me just indirectly beat you by beating Tommy".
