Who Is KSI Fighting Next? Date, Time And More

YouTube star KSI is eyeing up a sensational return to boxing later this year and has a fellow social media counterpart set in his sights.

KSI, who's real name Olijade Olatunji, won his first fight in an exhibition event against Joe Weller in 2018, before following up with a controversial draw against fellow internet sensation Logan Paul.

For their rematch, the pair became the first YouTubers to turn professional. Now, almost two years later, KSI is eyeing up a return to the sport, but he faces stern competition in his would-be opponent.

KSI's foray into the world of boxing saw him beat Paul the second time around - who recently survived eight rounds with boxing legend Floyd Mayweather - by split decision in their dramatic rematch at the end of 2019.

Who is KSI fighting next?

KSI has reportedly agreed to fight YouTuber star Austin McBroom after the pair recently came to blows on social media.


McBroom defeated TikTok star Bryce Hall in the main event of the 'YouTubers vs TikTokers' show on June 12, which garnered a lot of traction online.

Following his devastating knockout of Hall, McBroom reached out to KSI on social media and challenged him to step into the ring for his next fight.

"I'm ready when you are," McBroom commented on one of KSI's Instagram posts, while screenshotting a news snippet about both men coming to an agreement over a future bout.


KSI then replied to the call out his Instagram story in his usual witty manner by saying the fight would be an "easy warm-up" - enough of a comment to spark rumours of a potential fight.

So, what else do we know about KSI's and McBroom's proposed fight and what else has been said about it so far?

Who is KSI's next opponent Austin McBroom?

Austin McBroom is a well-known YouTuber who shot to fame after posting videos onto the video platform of his young and family and their daily routines.


While he has amassed a large fan base expanding to over 18m subscribers, the 29-year-old initially gained a reputation for being a good basketball player.

McBroom and his wife Catherine Paiz - also known as 'The ACE Family' - have become two of the most successful and highest-earning YouTubers on the planet.

Since they first started sharing their lives on the platform in 2016, the duo has amassed more than 19m subscribers and reportedly earn quite a pretty penny from their videos.


When are KSI and Austin McBroom fighting?

Although nothing has been formally announced as of yet, fans speculate that the Instagram interaction between the two YouTubers was enough to confirm the boxing match.

We'll be sure to let you know the outcome, along with more solid information about their altercation as soon as we have it, though.

What has been said so far?

Not everyone is impressed by the prospect of this bout, with Jake Paul slamming the British star.

He wrote online: "[Laugh out loud]. KSI immediately jumping at the opportunity to fight Austin.

"I guess 'music tours' and 'COVID' were only in the way of him fighting me."
