Alex Wassabi has called out Deji’s older brother & YouTube superstar KSI, only days after defeating him in the main fight of a Showstar Boxing UK versus USA event. Wassabi’s victory over Deji was his first official boxing match, and while the bout began off reasonably evenly, it quickly became evident that Wassabi was the superior boxer as the fight progressed.
Even though the Showstar boxer event was plagued by controversy, Wassabi has decided to return to the ring. KSI is widely regarded as the father of YouTube boxing, but while Jake Paul’s fame in the ring has faded, KSI remains its go for influencers wishing to take their boxing game to the next level.
KSI has spoken out about his brother Deji’s defeat to Alex Wassabi in his third boxing match last weekend
Wassabi is the latest to call out KSI, who has been singled out by a slew of YouTubers & online content creators. While KSI does have his sights set on about with Jake Paul, Wassabi is the latest to grab for the brass ring. Wassabi accused Wassabi of “kicking your brother when he’s down” after the Brit shared a video of his younger brother’s battle with Alex, to which he commented that Deji “should have swept the floor with him.”
He then said on his Instagram story that it’s time to “find out who the better boxer is,” inviting KSI to fight him in the ring. Wassabi’s call has elicited no public response from him, but he’s not been one to keep quiet about such matters. Expect a reply from JJ at a certain point, and if Wassabi’s intentions pan out, then two of them might be fighting in the ring very soon.
On Saturday evening, the British YouTube celebrity, whose real name is JJ Olatunji, remained seated at the OVO Arena Wembley to watch his brother finally face Wassabi after years of animosity. Despite entering the battle as a great favorite after reducing nearly three stone in weight, a younger Olatunji was unable to let go of his hands and landed only a few punches before losing by split decision.
