KSI faced his first ever career defeat against Tommy Fury; he sent an official appeal to the Professional Boxing Association to overturn the decision; however, nothing has been announced by the PBA so far. KSI’s end goal was to fight Jake Paul; after the recent loss, KSI seems to be on vacation mode.

KSI believes he won against Tommy Fury; perhaps the winner of Jake Paul vs KSI could qualify to fight Tommy for a rematch. Tommy Fury wants to get back to fighting professional boxers and as far as Jake Paul is concerned, he will fight next on 15th December; he hasn’t announced the opponent yet but confirmed that it will be a professional boxer from his age group.

KSI may take a long break before making a return; it will be interesting to see when Jake Paul and KSI will agree to fight each other.

In a recent episode of Impaulsive, KSI was invited as the guest; he spoke about taking a break and potentially fighting Jake Paul.

“Right now, I feel like I’ve retired,” KSI said, as quoted by mmafighting.com. “It’s weird. I haven’t trained since the fight. I’ve just enjoyed my life. It’s weird. It’s all these things that I would normally do, and I can relax.I think for right now, I’m kind of just enjoying myself.

Yeah, we’ll see [about fighting again]. My girlfriend has loved [the time off]. She’s like, ‘He’s back finally!’. We can go out to the restaurant and eat, and he can eat anything! We can go on holiday.

We can vibe. KSI on fighting Jake Paul: “It’s a huge fight, especially because the ego is on the line, Not even money, fame, whatever. It’s the ego. It’s pride. Who is going to be the YouTuber that falls down? That’s why everyone is like, ‘I need this’”.
