The popular YouTuber, Olajide Olayinka Williams “JJ” Olatunji, better known as KSI recently became a hot topic due to his boxing career. The YouTuber had arranged for a boxing match to take place on August 27th, 2022. However, the part that makes this so newsworthy is not only the fact that KSI had to box two opponents in individual boxing matches which has never been attempted before, but it was also the fact that the English content creator called out one of the most controversial internet-banned personalities for a potential chance to beat them in the ring in the upcoming matches in his boxing career. The beef between the two had taken a life of its own after the YouTuber tweeted that he was thankful Andrew Tate got banned from the internet.
KSI: Two fights, One night
On Saturday night, KSI went out there and made a new proud moment in his boxing career. At the O2 Arena in London, he defeated professional boxer Luis Alcaraz Pineda and British rapper Swarmz twice by knockout.
Due to an injury that forced Alex Wassabi out of a meeting with KSI, the YouTuber upped the challenge by having two new opponents who he would box in individual matches on the same night. The feat would not only include the fact that he would be entering the second match being roughed up after wrapping up the first one, but it would also mean that fans would get to experience two boxing matches at the price of one within the same night.
KSI tweeted about the internet ban
In a recently deleted tweet, KSI expressed his happiness over Andrew Tate’s expulsion from social networking sites before the big two matches in a one-night event took place. Andrew Tate, though, did not take the remarks lightly and returned with his own receipts. He cited some of KSI’s earlier videos, in an attempt to deflect the controversial tag off of himself and onto the Youtuber. However, it should be common knowledge that anyone who makes content for a living would always have some unintended dirty laundry hidden in their past, it is the person that they are now that decides if their past is still relevant or not.
Andrew Tate went after the English YouTuber
The misogynistic ex-kickboxer went on quite the rant during a podcast on YouTube when he noticed that KSI had tweeted about his ban, stating “Thank God Andrew Tate Got Banned”. The prideful toxic masculinity promoter could not let this slip by due to his insatiable ego and said:
“At least Jake Paul was man enough to say, ‘stand up for free speech.’ If you ever fought Jake, he’d smash your f****g face in. If you wanna get smoke twice, I’ll smoke you myself. You’re full of sh*t, you’re a f****g hypocrite. The shit you’ve said in the past is worse than anything I’ve ever f****g said and you know it. You’re talking about having a boxing match, your f****g 3 rounds (of) boxing and some nobody. I’ll take you 12 rounds and I’ll break every bone in your f****g face and you know it. Even before or after Jake’s done with you. You’re a f****g hypocrite as well. F****g dork, f**k KSI”
Clearly, the beef between the two personalities has quite the potential to evolve into something that fans can witness in the ring. Especially after KSI called out Andrew Tate for his next opponent in the ring during the closing speech of his boxing event that took place on 27th August 2022. It would be quite the spectacle if the man who prides himself on being such an “alpha male” actually live up to those words if he and KSI arrange a boxing match in the future.
