KSI willing to fight Justin Bieber and says he would ‘destroy’ Logan Paul’s world famous pal – The SunJanuary 28, 2022
YOUTUBE boxer KSI claims he would “destroy Justin Bieber” if he ever fought the singing sensation.
The pop star was in attendance to watch the Brit defeat rival Logan Paul on Saturday on points as the two social media icons battled in a boxing rematch.
After months of trash talk, the two finally let their fists do the talking with six rounds of entertaining boxing.
Watford-born KSI, 26, was handed the victory after a split decision – helped in part by a two-point deduction for his opponent – and fell to the canvas in tears, clearly delighted to bag the bragging rights between the pair.
However, before the showdown, 25-year-old Bieber had backed his pal Paul to emerge triumphant.
But when quizzed by Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain on whether he would call out the American musician, KSI warned him to stick to singing and forget about any plans of fighting.
He said: “If Justin Bieber actually wants to fight me then we’ll make it happen.
“Justin Bieber, I’d destroy him. It’d be nothing.
“This boy doesn’t know how to fight or anything combat, so let him just stick to singing.
“I destroyed Logan Paul, why would I fight Justin Bieber?”
Bieber – famed for hits such ‘Baby’ and ‘Where Are U Now’ – is no stranger to big boxing nights and used to walk former pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather to the ring.
He also trained with the Mayweather, and former Brit heavyweight David Haye.
More recently Bieber hit the headlines in June for calling out actor Tom Cruise, 57, to an MMA fight.
JB tagged UFC president Dana White in his call out on Twitter.
It was claimed Ari Emanuel, the co-CEO of the William Morris Endeavor agency that owns UFC, had a conference call with Bieber's manager, Scooter Braun, and White.
And it was suggested star of Mission Impossible Cruise was also on board to compete in the celebrity fight.
However, talks for the mega-money showdown have since come to nothing.
Meanwhile, KSI’S next fight could be a mainstream celebrity superstar after Eddie Hearn revealed SIX huge names have called him wanting to take him on.
The Matchroom Boxing promoter revealed some of the biggest names in sport, music and acting fancy a fight against the British YouTube sensation.
Hearn revealed a couple of those to give him a call “can really fight” as he looks to the future for KSI following his win – instantly leading to rumours that Bieber was one of them.
Speaking after the fight, Hearn said: “I've had five or six calls this week from probably the highest-profile people in their fields; from sport, music, acting…
“They said, 'don't say anything, but could I fight the winner?'
“So now we have to look at that and by the way two or three of them can really fight.”
