KSI and Jake Paul get into explosive verbal confrontation, even KSI fans think his rival came out on top
| Last updated
Jake Paul and KSI have continued to trade blows online with their beef now spilling over to Twitter spaces.
It’s the YouTube-boxing fight that everyone wants to see, and it’s all but inevitable that it’s going to happen, but with no contract signed the pair continue to get their claws out.
The pair have been on a collision course ever since each took on their respective brothers inside the ring.
KSI took a break from the sport of boxing, but with a fight this weekend and another two under his belt in the last six months it looks as if 2023 may be the year that it happens.
However, it looks as if the fight could have already been penciled in by now.
Jake slammed his rival on Twitter following KSI’s interview with combat sports journalist Ariel Helwani.
He tweeted: “I sent KSI and his team a contract over a month ago. I offered to come to the UK, 185 pounds and 10 rounds. I have been at [eight] rounds since Askren.
“He and his team have yet to respond.”
Later adding: “The offer was / is to come to the UK in December 2023. If he doesn’t respond next week after his show, then it’s going to have to be in the US.
“The best part is he tells Ariel Helwani that I’m hiding behind negotiations when in fact he has yet to respond. Hahaha.”

The initial tweet led to an intense Twitter spaces voice call between the pair that saw each of them throw out some heated insults at each other.
Paul criticised KSI for not choosing a tougher opponent than FaZe Temperrr in the wake of Dillon Danis pulling out of the fight.
“That’s what I did when Tommy [Fury] pulled out,” Paul yelled, “I fought Woodley again.”

The pair went back and forth over the quality of each other’s opponents.
KSI asked: “Have you fought anyone younger than 40? Why would I be afraid? You know I would f**k you up.”
Paul retorted: “If you would f**k me up, how come you haven’t done it yet?
“You came back to act like you were gonna fight me, then when the negotiations happened you got scared. Your ego can’t handle this sh.”
Adding: “You’re ducking me and you’re scared. The greatest thing to ever happen to you is Prime and my brother brought that to you. I’ll see you later.”
The interaction was reposted on KSI’s subreddit, in which his own fans believed Paul came out on top in the altercation.
One fan wrote: “Yeah I ain’t even gon cap, JJ took an L here.”
Another said: “10-8 Jake, unfortunately.”
A third added: “Nothing Jake said was wrong in this but KSI fans can’t admit it.”
