KSI's Speed And Power On Pads In Public Workout Has Surprised Fans
YouTube star KSI took part in a public workout at Venice Beach, California, this week ahead of his upcoming fight against Logan Paul on November 9th.
The 26-year-old will go head-to-head with the American personality at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Saturday, and it appears 'JJ' is in great shape as we approach fight night.
KSI, who floored an opponent in sparring last week, was accompanied by head coach Viddal Riley and trainer Leon Wills at the public event on Tuesday night.
He performed a series of training drills for the world's media and many boxing fans have been taken back by his technique, speed and power on the pads.
You can watch the full workout involving KSI and Paul below.
It's clear that KSI has made significantly improvements to his skillset since he came up against the likes of Joe Weller and Paul last year.
In fact, he admitted last month that he is a "different animal" ahead of the rematch.
"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.

In recent weeks, Olatunji has been in a Las Vegas training camp with experienced advisor Jeff Mayweather, who clearly brings a wealth of experience to proceedings.
Logan Paul, on the other hand, has been training with former heavyweight champion Shannon Briggs in recent months.
The American vlogger looked in peak physical condition last month as he jabbed, skipped and performed a number of floor exercises in another open workout.
KSI was far from impressed with Logan's performance, though.
"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.
Who do you think will win the fight on Saturday night? - KSI or Logan Paul?
