KSI agrees to get Jake Paul and 'everyone in a room' and not leave until fight is a 'done deal'
| Last updated
The contract negotiations to finally secure a KSI and Jake Paul boxing match seem to never end.
Boxing and long negotiations seem to be a theme in recent times, with Tyson Fury continuing to draw out a deal for a fight with Oleksandr Usyk.
But the potential Paul and KSI fight seemingly takes the cake for the most drawn-out negotiations at the moment.

It’s a fight that’s been years in the making but has never been signed off upon on the dotted line.
The British YouTuber has admitted that he’s planning on hanging up the gloves at the end of the year so time does seem to be ticking.
Meanwhile, Paul has looked intent on moving up to fight actual boxers.
But let’s be real, what’s the point of all this YouTube-boxing nonsense if we don’t actually get this fight in the end?
If Jake Paul fights someone else instead of Tommy Fury, he’s officially ducking me 😂— ksi (@KSI) March 19, 2023
The former Disney Star’s Most Valuable Promotions and KSI’s MisFits boxing need to finally get this ironed out so we have a date set.
And that seems like that’s exactly what’s going to happen.
The Englishman’s manager Mams Taylor claimed that Paul had ‘backed out’ of fighting KSI this summer, saying the ‘ball’ was in his rival’s court.
Taylor followed up saying: “I did get a call from Jake’s team saying, hey, Jake doesn’t want to fight KSI in summer like we wanted because of some excuses. Whatever. Basically, he doesn’t want to fight KSI. He wants to fight other people.”
Adding: “We booked Wembley stadium, we were ready, and he’s backed out.”
Who at MVP did you check this with before tweeting it like it’s a fact?— Most Valuable Promotions (@MostVpromotions) March 18, 2023
MVP disputed such claims on Twitter, replying to interviewer Fred Beck who had reported the news.
They tweeted: “Who at MVP did you check this with before tweeting it like it’s a fact?”
With a whole lot of ‘he said, she said’ Mams Taylor decided to make a proposal to finally get it all hashed out.
He tweeted: “Let’s get everyone in a room and not leave until it’s a done deal and livestream the whole thing for all to see! #NothingToHide.”
Let’s do it 👌🏿 https://t.co/RdhWb8PULJ— ksi (@KSI) March 19, 2023
And his main man KSI was all for the idea, replying: “Let’s do it.”
The Problem Child has yet to follow up on the idea, and if he doesn’t it looks as though KSI may shift his attention to face Tommy Fury later this year instead.
Just get it done so we can watch the pair batter each other.
