KSI faces not one, but TWO challengers when he enters the ring on August 27…and his rival Jacques-Paul it’s crap all over the idea – saying it all looks like a setup.
The English YouTuber should fight the two rappers swarmz ET Bulgarian professional middleweight Ivan Nikolav (3-16-2) at the O2 in London… not the first time a boxer has had more than one opponent in a night.

In reality, George Foreman took FIVE fights in one day in 1975 … but as Jake points out, it wasn’t necessarily a great fan experience.
“George Foreman fought 4 people in 1 night and it was an awful performance,” Paul said on Twitter a few minutes ago.
“At first it seemed like a good idea, but eventually it pissed off the fans because they realized all opponents had to lose. It was basically a stunt, not worth the price of admission.”
Jake’s assessment isn’t wrong – fan reports from the night claimed to be booing the moment Foreman arrived on the scene.
Even though he doesn’t mention it by name, it’s obvious that Jake is talking about KSI’s new announcement… which the promoters hope will keep fans interested after Alex Wasabi had to withdraw due to a concussion.
As for Jake and KSI stepping into the ring, they just agreed fight in 2023.
