Related video: Eddie Hearn thinks Jake Paul and KSI could ‘kill’ boxing
YouTuber and musician KSI (real name JJ Olatunji) took out yet another opponent in his latest boxing match on Saturday night (14 January), as the online influencer continues to move towards his “end goal” of taking on controversial content creator Jake Paul.
“I said I wanted end of the year and I will get it. Trust,” KSI said.
And what did Paul himself make of this challenge? Well, his response to the knockout was filmed and shared on social media by his older brother, Logan, showing the divisive YouTuber appearing to look “unimpressed” with the outcome.
Commenting on KSI’s fallout in a follow-up video, the younger Paul said sarcastically: “I am shivering in fear.”
Except Twitter users were all too keen to point out Paul’s apparent unease at KSI’s knockout, with one even comparing his expression (he was actually eating food) to that of the ‘Shocked Pikachu’ meme.
“Bro is speechless,” wrote one.
Viddal Riley, a former trainer for KSI, commented: “This is funny. Man is celebrating and Jake looks like he wants to dash a brick at the TV.”
“Jake looks so unimpressed LOL,” said a third.
In a Twitter post of his own following KSI’s latest bout, Paul said he loves when the YouTuber wins a fight “because it gives him more confidence for him to actually get in the ring with me”.
KSI previously revealed in a YouTube video that both teams were negotiating for a fight at the end of 2023.
