On December 15, Olajide “JJ” Olatunji, better known as KSI, will officially take on live streamer IShowSpeed in a charity fight. The match remains anticipated ever since IShowSpeed called out KSI to a fight in a post on the social media platform X. After some back-and-forth, they settled on December 15. Many fans have noticed the date coincided with Jake Paul’s return fight with Andre August.
While IShowSpeed’s banter with KSI has remained a recurring occurrence, the charity fight remains one of a kind. The match between them is not officially sanctioned, and the fighters will only be training for charity purposes. In addition, IShowSpeed has teamed up with the Liverpool-based charity Anthony Walker Foundation to support their fight against racism and hate crime. During the live stream, fans can make donations, with all funds going to support the Anthony Walker Foundations.
Furthermore, the funds will help victims of racism through educational programs, victim support services, and equity education. Not much time is left for the match, and both YouTube stars have begun preparing for the sparring match. In addition, IShowSpeed has no prior boxing experience and will be a complete newbie during this sparring match.
However, KSI has had six professional fights, and his last fight was against the professional boxer Tommy Fury. Subsequently, the fight took place in Manchester in October, and although KSI showed promise in the early rounds, he lost via unanimous decision in a six-round bout.
Fans react to the IShowSpeed training video
IShowSpeed and KSI have worked together a lot over the last couple of years, which has captured the hearts of fans. Hence, the rivalry between the two YouTube stars is well known because of their interactions over the years.
Fans can recall Speed tackling KSI during the Sidemen charity celebrity football match in 2022. Hence, the sparring match can bring an interesting conclusion to their rivalry. However, fans are slightly worried since IShowSpeed is an amateur who must learn boxing prior to KSI. Furthermore, while reacting to a video of IShowSpeed training, a fan commented, “Oh, he’s done.”
Check out some of the fan reactions:
Furthermore, fans expressed that IShowSpeed does not look very good in his training video and has horrible footwork. Subsequently, fans stated that IShowSpeed has potential but lacks time to prepare for KSI.
