Footage Of KSI Knocking Out Sparring Partner Emerges Ahead Of Logan Paul Fight
A clip of YouTube star KSI flooring an opponent in sparring has emerged online ahead of his highly anticipated bout against Logan Paul.
The 26-year-old will go head-to-head with the American personality at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on November 9th, and it appears 'JJ' is in great shape as we approach fight night.
The Mayweather YouTube channel has recently posted footage of KSI taking down an unnamed sparring partner in the ring with a solid overhand right.
Check out the footage below.
Olatunji is currently at his training camp in Las Vegas with head coach Viddal Riley, experienced advisor Jeff Mayweather and trainer Leon Wills, who all bring a wealth of experience to proceedings.
He admitted earlier this week that he is a "different animal" compared to last year, when he fought Paul for the first time.
"This camp is tough man," KSI told the Mayweather Channel. "But I know it's going to turn me into a beast to the point where Logan is just going to look into my eyes and say 'I don't want any of this'.
"I think he'll give up, maybe even round one or two after he realises that I'm a different animal to last year.
"I'm training so hard, everything is so solid, my team solid, food is good, it's even better now.
If you think Logan's winning this fight, you're stupid as hell :joy::joy::joy:. I didn't even train for the last fight with him, so imagine how I'm gonna be when I actually train?

KSI is clearly confident about his chances, but footage of Logan Paul's 20 minute open workout also emerged online last week and the American vlogger looks in fine form ahead of next month's blockbuster bout.
The 24-year-old has been training with former heavyweight champion Shannon Briggs in recent months.
And a confident Paul showcased his boxing skills alongside Briggs in Los Angeles as the world's media looked on.
Paul looked in peak physical condition as he jabbed, skipped and performed a number of floor exercises.
But his upcoming opponent was far from impressed with Logan's performance on the floor.
"It was pretty standard, I probably expected more from him." KSI said after watching the workout. "He was skipping for five-10 minutes and he just looked knackered.
"The jabs were weak, his hand positions were all over the place. There's a lot to decipher from that and compared to mine, he's finished."
