KSI has weighed in on younger brother Deji’s defeat to Floyd Mayweather in Dubai this past weekend – and insists he is capable of avenging his sibling’s loss and beating the man many call ‘The Best Ever.’
KSI, who was in Deji’s corner for the fight, said on a vlog on his YouTube channel that watching his brother get dismantled by the legendary American at the Coca Cola arena simply enraged him
“Deji got beat up for six rounds. I think for me, I hated it, because I just don’t want to see my brother get beat up like that. It just p***** me off. I wanted to get in that ring and f*** Floyd up.”
“The same situation with Alex Wassabi and Deji, it was infuriating losing to someone who I know he can beat. And I know a lot of you are gonna be like, ‘There’s no way Deji can beat Mayweather’, but I feel like I can beat Mayweather.”
Mayweather was, as expected, lightyears ahead of the YouTuber. He toyed with Deji, showboating on numerous occasions and hitting pads in-between rounds before putting his foot on the pedal in the sixth round and forcing the referee to jump in and stop the bout.
As for KSI, his next opponent is due to be revealed at the Misfits Boxing card in Austin this weekend, with Joe Fournier rumoured to be the man chosen for ‘The Nightmare’s next outing.
Founier, a 39-year-old businessman, boats a professional boxing record of 9-0 and participated in an exhibition bout with former heavyweight world champion David Haye in September 2021. Other names on the list include Tyron Woodley and Dillon Danis, who caused a ruckus at a press conference this week.
