Olajide Olatunji, also know as 'KSI', made his professional boxing debut in November of last year against fellow outspoken YouTuber Logan Paul.
The bout - which happened at the Staples Center in Los Angeles and was promoted by Eddie Hearn - was a rematch of their first fight which ended in a majority draw.
And in their second showdown, KSI was handed the split decision victory over his trash-talking American rival.
Now, though, it appears he has set his sights on a far tougher opponent.
