The 30-year-old YouTuber and influencer hasn’t set foot again within the gymnasium because the Fury struggle, however he hasn’t essentially closed the door on one other struggle. For now, he’s simply having fun with the break from an intense coaching schedule.
“Proper now, I really feel like I’ve retired,” KSI mentioned on Logan Paul’s Impaulsive podcast. “It’s bizarre. I haven’t skilled because the struggle. I’ve simply loved my life. It’s bizarre. It’s all this stuff that I’d usually do, and I can chill out.
“I believe for proper now, I’m type of simply having fun with myself. Yeah, we’ll see [about fighting again]. My girlfriend has beloved [the time off]. She’s like, ‘He’s again lastly!’ We are able to exit to the restaurant and eat, and he can eat something! We are able to go on vacation. We are able to vibe.”
If he does return to struggle once more, KSI is aware of the marquee matchup on all people’s thoughts stays the showdown in opposition to Jake Paul. Their rivalry has solely intensified in current months, particularly after Paul ripped KSI for acting like the “sorest loser in the world” following his struggle with Fury.
The disdain they share solely appears to boost the curiosity in that potential matchup, and KSI is aware of there’s a lot driving on that struggle.
“It’s an enormous struggle, particularly as a result of the ego is on the road,” KSI mentioned. “Not even cash, fame, no matter. It’s the ego. It’s pleasure. Who’s going to be the YouTuber that falls down? That’s why everyone seems to be like, ‘I would like this.’”
As a lot because the world needs to see KSI vs. Jake Paul, there’s positively one one that would like it by no means occurs: Logan Paul.
Whereas they shared their very own rivalry by two earlier fights, Logan ultimately befriended KSI, they usually later began a enterprise collectively after launching Prime Vitality Drink.
Now, the elder Paul is sort of caught as the person within the center.
“I’d be superb with [that fight] not taking place,” Paul mentioned. “My solely factor is I don’t love how a lot you and Jake don’t like one another. It’s not a brilliant enjoyable place for me. There’s an excessive amount of on the road. I’m telling you it’s unimaginable [for that fight to happen].”
Regardless of potential obstacles, KSI may nonetheless realistically conflict with Jake Paul within the ring and maybe that might put their rivalry to mattress — very similar to what occurred to spark a friendship with Logan Paul.
“There’s a method the meat fan be solved,” Paul joked. “Sadly, it’s by a struggle that can finish in a tie, after which one other struggle the place one among them loses by one level, after which they begin a drink firm.”
